Hofstra lands star Queens recruit Malik Nichols
Thursday, 13 February 2014
ImageNew York Post: Hofstra’s on-court slump hasn’t extended into recruiting.

The Pride have excelled there since Joe Mihalich came to Long Island from Niagara in the offseason.

That continued last week when Queens product and junior college standout Malik Nichols picked the CAA program, committing to Hofstra four years after he initially pledged there.

The versatile 6-foot-6 forward committed to Hofstra at the start of his senior year, back in 2010, yet he didn’t qualify out of Boys & Girls after leading the Kangaroos to a second straight PSAL Class AA crown. Rather than attend junior college, he wound up at prep school Bridgton Academy in Maine, a year of development that just delayed the inevitable.

Nichols, who went from Bridgton to South Plains College in Levelland, Texas, committed to Hofstra last week, picking the Pride and its new staff over Louisiana Tech, Louisiana-Lafayette, Fordham and TCU. South Plains assistant coach Hank Plona said Hofstra made Nichols a clear priority, sending each member of its staff to the junior college in West Texas.

 
Drexel gets third 2014 commitment, from Tyshawn Myles
Wednesday, 06 November 2013
ImageCity of Basketball Love:  Drexel received its third commitment from the Class of 2014 on Monday with forward Tyshawn Myles verbally committing to the Dragons.

Myles, a 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward out of New York, follows guards Rashann London (Roman Catholic, Pa.) and Sammy Mojica (Brimmer & May, Mass.) in the Drexel 2014 recruiting class.

“They’re getting a very athletic power forward,” WHEELS (N.Y.) coach Josh Krinsky told CoBL. “He can really run the floor well, plays well above the rim; at this point his strengths are protecting the rim, blocking shots and he’s an excellent rebounder as well as being able to beat other teams’ bigs up and down the floor.”

Myles picked Drexel over Marshall and LIU-Brooklyn, with interest from Norfolk State, Central Connecticut and Albany.

 
Nick Harris commits to College of Charleston
Wednesday, 18 September 2013
ImagePost and Courier: The College of Charleston finished off its 2014 recruiting class in sizable fashion Wednesday night, getting a verbal commitment from St. Pius X High School center Nick Harris.

The Cougars had three scholarships to give this year and got verbal commitments from Harris along with forwards Evan Bailey (6-6) and Donovan Gilmore (6-7). Verbal commitments are non-binding. All three are scheduled to join the program next fall.

The 6-10 Harris said there was very little not to like about Charleston and the Cougars. St. Pius High School is located in Atlanta.

“The city is great, the facilities are great and I really got along with the coaching staff and all the players,” Harris said late Wednesday night via telephone. “Everything just seemed to click when I took my official visit. It’s a great fit for me. They made me feel like I was part of their family already.”

 
Mount St. Joseph guard Jordan McNeil commits to Towson
Monday, 09 September 2013
ImageBaltimore Sun: Jordan McNeil didn’t pay too much attention to the Towson basketball program growing up, but when coach Pat Skerry came calling this summer, the Mount St. Joseph senior suddenly became “pretty interested” in the Tigers.

“It’s local and their basketball team was on the rise,” said McNeil, who played AAU ball with Under Armour B’more’s Finest. “I really liked it. I didn’t have any reason to wait, so I made the decision.”  

McNeil, who committed to Towson on Monday afternoon, chose the Tigers over offers from College of Charleston, Toledo and UMBC. The West Baltimore native, who visited every school on his list but Toledo, wasn’t initially sure if he wanted to stay close to home for college.

“At first it was tough, like ‘Should I go away or should I stay?’” McNeil said. “But I realized my fan base is here. I want them to come out and support me whenever they can.”

 
Byron Hawkins Chooses Towson
Monday, 09 September 2013

ImagePhenom Hoop Report: Towson picked up their third commitment when 6’ lead guard Byron Hawkins chose Towson on today. The newly re classed (back to his original 2014)  Hawkins took a visit over to the local school and felt it was the best place for him to be.
 
What Hawkins Says:
“My visit was just so great and I really enjoyed my time there with the team, and the school was so fun. I have a lot of faith in Coach Skerry and the staff, so that helped.”

On How He Will Be Used:
“They plan on using me as a primary ball handler. As someone who will push the ball, make plays happen, drop dimes, and score.”

Evan Bailey verbally commits to College of Charleston
Saturday, 31 August 2013
ImagePost and Courier: Evan Bailey has never been to the Lowcountry or seen a College of Charleston men’s basketball game in person.

That didn’t seem to matter as the versatile Bailey, a 6-5 forward from Jackson High School in Massillon, Ohio, verbally committed to play for the College of Charleston beginning next fall.

Bailey projects to play either shooting guard or small forward for the Cougars. Bailey, an excellent student, picked the Cougars over offers from Harvard, Princeton, Cornell, Toledo, Miami (Ohio) and Kent State.

“I think the College of Charleston was the best fit for me,” Bailey said. “I’ve never been down there, but from what I’ve seen on the internet, it looks like a beautiful campus. Everyone I talked to about Charleston had nothing but great things to say about it. I see myself as a shooting guard or small forward, but I’ll play wherever they want me to play.”’

 
Drexel gets second verbal this week in Sammy Mojica
Wednesday, 28 August 2013

ImageCity of Basketball Love: In the span of six days, Drexel’s 2014 recruiting class has gotten quite the kick-start. The Dragons received their second commitment in the last week on Wednesday, when Brimmer & May (Mass.) senior Sammy Mojica verbally committed to play for head coach Bruiser Flint.

“It’s official,” he told CoBL.

The only other collegiate offer Mojica had was from Binghamton University, and after visiting Drexel and thinking about the two schools it was clear to him which one was the better fit. A large part of his decision had to do with the presence of Flint, now entering his 13th year at the helm of the Dragons.

“I love the coach, he’s a real good guy,” he said. “I like playing for coaches that are always on you like that and he’s just an all-around good guy; I haven’t built a big relationship with him yet but since I met him I feel like I’m close to him already and it just felt right when I was there, felt like I got along there.”

Mike Morsell chooses Towson
Tuesday, 27 August 2013
ImagePhenom Hoop Report: When I asked 6’5 wing Mike Morsell what kind of player Towson was getting, he quickly replied, ‘A scorer, that can flat out just score the ball!’ And that pretty much sums up Morsell, a scorer. 

Not a shooter, not a slasher, but a kid with a nose for the bucket.

In the end, the St John’s Collegiate guard chose between Florida Atlantic and Towson. 

When it came down to it,  Morsell says that Coach Skerry made all the difference. I love and believe in Coach Skerry and what he’s doing with the program!’

 
Roman Catholic's Rashann London Commits to Drexel
Thursday, 22 August 2013

ImageCity of Basketball Love: Drexel’s critical Class of 2014 got its first member on August 22 as Rashann London (Roman Catholic/Team Philly) chose to stay in Philadelphia for college, multiple sources tell CoBL.

“I just felt that Drexel was the best fit for me,” London told CoBL on Thursday. “It was close to home, where my family and friends can see me. That’s really what stood out the most.”

London averaged 15.3 points per game last year at Roman, the same high school that current Drexel assistant coach Bobby Jordan attended. Jordan was a former four-year Dragon walk-on who spent a year as an operations assistant at the school before being elevated to his current position last summer

“I talked to Bobby almost every day,” London said. “I really formed a good relationship with Bobby and he made me feel very comfortable.”

Milford Mill's Allen Costley talks about his Towson commitment
Wednesday, 31 July 2013

ImageBaltimore Sun: Since taking over as Towson’s coach two years ago, Pat Skerry has focused his recruiting on the East Coast, landing players from North Carolina, Virginia, Delaware, D.C., Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Connecticut. Noticeably absent from that list of states has been Maryland – until this week.

Allen Costley, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound guard/forward from Milford Mill, committed to the Tigers on Tuesday. The Baltimore Sun first-team All-Metro player picked Towson over offers from Central Connecticut State, Florida Atlantic, Morgan State and Radford, among others.

“It feels great,” Costley said Tuesday night. “I guess it’s just like, I’m doing something well. They did tell me that they don’t really recruit from Baltimore [a ton]. It feels … special.”

Costley started hearing from Towson last fall, just as he began his junior year at Milford Mill following a transfer from St. Frances. The Tigers were coming off a 1-31 season, but Costley didn’t seem to care about past years of basketball ineptitude.
