  By late October Elijah Long knew where he was going to college. But by the time he graduated from John Carroll this spring, he was back to square one.

Long, a 6-foot, 182-pound point guard from suburban Toronto, had re-opened his recruitment in April, mutually parting ways with Florida Gulf Coast for a variety of reasons. Junior college, a prep year, or another four-year university in the U.S. or Canada were all potential options.

“I was confused,” Long said. “It wasn’t like I was scared of anything. I just didn’t know what was going to happen in the future.”

Enter Mount St. Mary’s coach Jamion Christian, who offered Long a scholarship last month. The former Patriots star accepted the offer last week.

“It feels good,” Long said. “It feels like a weight’s off my shoulders. Now I don’t have to worry about what school I’m going to anymore.”

Since Jack Vukelich was still mighty, mighty early in the basketball recruiting process — the Trinity youngster had only wrapped up his sophomore year a few weeks earlier — he was really surprised when Jamion Christian nonchalantly made a comment the 16-year-old will recall as long as he lives.

“He just kind of brought it up in a conversation,” Vukelich related recently.

Mount Saint Mary's gets pledge from local Big Man
Thursday, 26 September 2013

ImageMount Fan Blog: Mo Sallah, a 6-8 forward from Broadfording Christian Academy in Hagerstown, has pledged his future to Mt. St. Mary's. Sallah led BCA in scoring a season ago averaging 18.4 per night. In addition, he grabbed 14 rebounds per night, and blocked better than 3 shots per contest.

 The Lions lost in the championship game of the Mason Dixon Christian Conference. Sallah had 20 points in the championship game. He was named to the MDCC All-Star team, and the WHAG-TV 25 Fab Five team.

Sallah is spending a post-graduate year at Fishburne Military Academy in Waynesboro Virginia and will join the Mount in 2014-15.

Sallah will spend most of his time in the low block for the Mount. At 6-8 and athletic he should fit in well with the other 4 who already committed as part of next year's class. The Mount has landed point guard Junior Robinson, and front line players Chris Manning, Chuck Wray, Troy Henderson and now Sallah.

Sacred Heart Scores with Broome
Friday, 20 September 2013
ImageNERR: Sacred Heart landed a big commitment on Tuesday afternoon from East Hartford native and St. Thomas More guard Cane Broome.  

First year Sacred Heart head coach Anthony Latina made Broome his top priority this summer and followed him throughout the month as he and his Expressions Elite squad traveled from the Nike Peach Jam to Philadelphia to Atlantic City.  

“They were the main ones all summer long.  They didn’t miss any games,” Broome told the New England Recruiting Report.  “Coach Latina told me how much I’d mean to the program and that meant a lot.”

Sacred Heart and Wagner became the first division I schools to offer Broome a scholarship this summer, and although his recruitment was likely to continue growing this season at St. Thomas More, he was conscious of friends and former teammates who had bad college experiences after going to levels where they weren’t able to play immediate minutes.  
Basil Thompson to St Francis
Friday, 20 September 2013
ImageVerbal Commits: Imhotep forward Basil Thompson was very candid about what stood out for him at St Francis, "That no one spot is given if you come in and play better than the guy ahead of you then you will play." 

The 6'6 mismatch likes an up-tempo system, one where he can take advantage of his length and athleticism toward the basket. 

Thompson, who visited the campus for his official visit this past weekend spoke of the friendly nature of the current population, "This past weekend I went on an official visit and got a chance to meet some nice people which I liked." 

Mount Saint Mary's Gets NC Big Man
Monday, 16 September 2013

ImagePhenom Hoop Report:  On his official visit to Mt St Mary’s 6’8” North Carolina forward Troy Henderson saw that Mt St Mary’s was the place for him, “The overall potential of, not only myself, but the program as a whole. The opportunities they provide outside of basketball. Plus the chances of, not only going to the tourney but, going deep are higher.”

The rising senior at Gaston Day School says that his coach of record was a big time reason for his decision, “Coach Wilkins started on me early my junior year. We got pretty close talking probably two or three times a week.”

The Upward Stars alum speaks of the long term plans the Mountaineers had for him, “Eventually I will be a three. But next year, depending on how quickly I transition, will play a stretch four.” Henderson goes on to speak of Mt St Mary’s system and its appeal, “They are really uptempo, all five players on the court have the green light.” 

Henderson chose Mt St Mary’s over a final group that included Campbell.  Henderson is a 6’8” skilled forward. He has great length and bounce to his game along with soft touch. He is still putting it all together, but (as was suggested to me today) Henderson is the type of player that people will look at in three years and wonder, ‘how did Mt St Mary’s get this kid? Henderson is rated the #26 rising senior in NC by the Phenom Hoop Report.

Union Catholicís Devine Eke commits to FDU
Wednesday, 21 August 2013

ImageMy Central Jersey: Union Catholic High School boys basketball standout Devine Eke has found a collegiate home just a few miles to the north. The senior-to-be committed to Fairleigh Dickinson Tuesday morning, joining first-year head coach Greg Herenda’s rebuilding project.

“I’m very excited because it’s a new coaching staff and they’re trying to build this thing up,” Eke said. “I’m a competitive person and I want to change it around. I want to help put them on the map.”

The 6-foot-6 Eke, who plays forward in high school but projects as a wing on the next level, is known for his athleticism—in particular his jumping ability. He started at Union Catholic as a sophomore before attending St. Benedict Prep last year. His older brother, Allen, was a track and field state champion in the 800 meters at Union Catholic and now runs for Oklahoma.
