Thursday, 12 September 2013

ImageZags Blog: Lamonte Bearden, a 6-foot-3, 165-pound point guard from Germantown (WI) High, pledged to Buffalo and coach Bobby Hurley Tuesday night.

“I love their program and most of all, the coaches,” he told SNY.tv. “I’ll be able to create plays off the ball screen with Bob Hurley coaching me.”

A long, athletic player with a huge upside, Bearden led Germantown to a 28-0 record and the state title last season. He visited Buffalo this past weekend and ultimately chose them over Oregon State and Green Bay, he told SNY.tv. Minnesota, Creighton, Butler, Purdue and Iowa State all expressed interest.

“My relationship with the coaching staff and their vision for the future were the main reasons I chose Buffalo,” he told SNY.tv.

Tuesday, 23 July 2013
ImageRivals: The Western Michigan basketball program snagged its first commitment of the 2015 recruiting class, as Chesterton, In. shooting guard prospect Chris Palombizio committed to the Broncos shortly after receiving an offer Friday night.

Palombizio has been getting more looks lately as he continues to shine with Fieldhouse Elite Merrillville throughout the young AAU summer season. 

He scored 22 points last weekend in one contest and put on another show this weekend in front of coaching staff's from Dayton, Eastern Kentucky, Evansville, NIU, Valparaiso, and Western Michigan. 

The Broncos finally pulled the trigger yesterday and Palombizio made his commitment shortly thereafter. Palombizio's only other offer was from Eastern Illinois. He's also hearing from Central Michigan, Purdue, and South Dakota State.

Kansas Transfer Anrio Adams Commits To Ohio
Wednesday, 19 June 2013
ImageWOUB: ESPN’s Jeff Goodman reported Saturday that Kansas transfer Anrio Adams has committed to play for Jim Christian and the Ohio Bobcats. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound guard, who just completed his freshman season with the Jayhawks, will be eligible to play for the 2014-15 season.

In 24 games last season, Adams averaged just 3.5 minutes and 1.1 points a game. The combo guard was on the bottom of Kansas’ depth chart last year, behind seniors Elijah Johnson and Travis Releford and second-team All-American Ben McLemore. Adams was frustrated with his lack of playing time last year, making headlines for his complaints over Twitter.

When Adams announced his transfer, Kansas coach Bill Self told AP, “Anrio is a very talented kid. We’ve enjoyed him being here.”

Tariq Owens talks about his Ohio University pledge
Monday, 17 June 2013
ImageBaltimore Sun: Playing Division I basketball was the furthest thing from Tariq Owens’ mind when he was just a 5-foot-9 eighth-grade football player.  But three years, 12 inches and a new sport changed his mindset dramatically.

Owens, now a 6-foot-9, 180-pound junior forward from Pallotti, found himself in the enviable position this spring of choosing between several DI scholarship offers. On Monday night, the Odenton resident selected Ohio University.

“It feels very good to have that out of the way and [be able to] focus on other things,” Owens said Tuesday. “When the process first started, I didn’t expect to get as much attention as I did. [But] it turned out for the best.”

Owens, who picked the Bobcats over offers from Cal State Northridge, Miami and Temple, didn’t start playing competitive basketball until his freshman year at Arundel High. He grew to 6-3 by the start of his sophomore year at Pallotti, before rapidly sprouting over the past year-and-a-half.

Zaumseil’s future is at Miami (Ohio)
Monday, 17 June 2013
ImageDaily Herald:  Barrington senior guard Brad Zaumseil has committed to a future in basketball at Miami (Ohio).

The 6-foot all-Mid-Suburban League pick was a three-year starter at Barrington, and one of the most well-rounded players in the conference last season.

He led Barrington in scoring (17.6 points per game), assists (4.2) steals (2.7) and 3-pointers (45) and was the second-leading rebounder on the team at 5.2 per game.

"He could hurt teams in so many ways," coach Bryan Tucker told the Daily Herald for Zaumseil's inclusion on the boys basketball all-area team in March. "I'm sure everyone game-planned for him and tried to take him out of the equation, but it was just so hard to do."

Jamir Hanner to Buffalo
Friday, 14 June 2013
ImageZags Blog: Jamir Hanner is headed to Buffalo.

The 6-foot-8, 220-pound combo forward told SNY.tv Friday he is leaving Marshall and will have two years of eligibility under Buffalo coach Bobby Hurley after sitting out next season.

“Even though I haven’t visited the University of Buffalo, I know about the tradition of the Hurleys and I think it’s a good opportunity for me at a new program and it’s a new start,” he told  SNY.tv. 

“My time at Marshall was a good transition from prep school to becoming a freshman at Marshall University. I appreciate what Marshall has done for me but it was time to move on and pursue other options.

“I’m thankful and grateful that coach Bobby Hurley was interested. I am very familiar with what Coach Hurley did as a player and his background speaks for itself. It should be a good experience as I continue to learn and grow as a player. Also, my best friend (brother) DeShon Minnis, who is at Rhode Island, spoke good things about Hurley.”

Kent State Adds Lawrence to 2013 Recruiting Class
Friday, 14 June 2013
ImageKent State Sports: Kent State men's basketball head coach Rob Senderoff  announced the signing of Marquiez Lawrence to a National Letter of Intent on Wednesday (May 15). A 6'8", 190-pound forward, Lawrence will join the Golden Flashes' program out of Marion-Franklin High School.

"Marquiez is a really athletic player and a great defender," said Senderoff. "His defense is probably ahead of his offense at this time, but we believe he will continue to develop his skills because of his work ethic. He plays really hard and competes really hard. He does a lot of the dirty work that helps a team and also brings a lot of energy when he is on the floor. He brings the ability to do a lot of different things that will help us win games."

This past season, Lawrence led the Red Devils to their first district championship since 1993. He averaged 12 points and eight rebounds during his final prep season under head coach Scott Williams.

"In the late signing period, we wanted to add frontcourt depth, knowing that we will be graduating three big guys after the upcoming season," Senderoff said. "Marquiez is a kid that we followed all year and last summer and are very happy that he was still available to sign at this point."
