Fayetteville Academy's Zane Waterman commits to Manhattan
Monday, 09 September 2013

ImageFayetteville Observer: Fayetteville Academy basketball standout Zane Waterman, a 6-foot-8 senior with perimeter skills, committed to Manhattan on Sunday.

Waterman, who has received roughly 10 Division I scholarship offers, averaged 25.9 points and 11.7 rebounds while leading his team to an 18-9 record as a junior. He recorded 18 double-doubles and was named to the NCISAA 2-A all-state team.

Waterman narrowed his list of finalists to Manhattan, Charlotte and Saint Joseph's last month before declaring that he was re-opening his recruitment. He took an official visit to Manhattan over the weekend and met up with Brooklyn Nets rookie Mason Plumlee, a former Duke star, after dinner on Saturday night.

"He had a great visit, was very impressed with everything," Fayetteville Academy coach Justin McClendon said.


Tyler Nelson of Central Catholic commits to Fairfield
Tuesday, 27 August 2013
ImageBoston Herald: Central Catholic senior guard Tyler Nelson has just confirmed via his twitter feed that he will attend Fairfield on a basketball scholarship. He took a trip there a few months ago and fell in love with everything about the school.

"I really liked the campus," Nelson said. "I met the coaches and really liked them. I think I can go there and have a chance to play as a freshman. I also liked the academics, I'm looking at business and a few other things (to major in)."

A 6-foot-2 sharpshooter, Nelson averaged 16.2 points per game and was named to the Merrimack Valley All-Conference Team as the Raiders won the MVC Large and Division 1 North sectional title. He enters his final season with 926 points. An honor roll student, Nelson also earned All-Scholastic honors in golf this fall, winning the MVC championship and finishing fifth in the sectional final. Making the decision will allow him to focus solely on Central Catholic in his final campaign.

"That was a goal of mine, to make a decision before the start of my senior year," Nelson said. "Now that this is done, I can concentrate on my golf and basketball."

Hyde Big Man Headed to MAAC
Thursday, 15 August 2013
ImageNERR: Hyde School's six-foot-eight rising senior big man Kenny Grant made a verbal commitment to Rider on Tuesday night. 

Grant, who doubles as a two-sport athlete at Hyde, is a product of the Sports U grassroots program and also attended the Reebok Breakout Classic earlier this summer.  

He saw wide-ranging recruitment, including schools like Wichita State and George Mason, but ultimately decided to return closer to his New Jersey home.  

A physically powerful and left-handed post player, Grant is an outstanding interior defender and rebounder.

Ahmed to Iona
Tuesday, 13 August 2013
ImageZags Blog:  Bashir Ahmed, a 6-foot-6, 182-pound wing from Bronx John F. Kennedy High School, committed to Iona Monday while on a visit.

“I verbally committed,” he told “I think Iona fit me perfectly. Out of all the schools I got, I think Iona fit me the most.”

Ahmed also helds offers from Norfolk State, Morgan State, Hofstra, FIU, Buffalo and Manhattan, he said.

“[Iona] is going to let me run the one, the two and I’m going to have more freedom,” he said. “It fits my style as a player and a everything.”

Former five-star recruit Chris Thomas headed to Marshall
Tuesday, 23 July 2013
ImageNBC Sports: Well-traveled JuCo standout Chris Thomas is no longer going to attend Manhattan and is instead headed to Marshall to play his college ball, according to a report from Jon Rothstein, who spent the day at Manhattan’s practice.

Thomas’ status had been up in the air at Manhattan. He’s got a long history of academic issues and was violated his conditional released stemming from driving an unregistered vehicle without a license when he tested positive for marijuana. He was in jail during Chipola Junior College’s trip to the JuCo National tournament.

“We have to make some decisions as a program, is that something that we want to move forward with and that type of thing,” Manhattan head coach Steve Masiello told back in June. “We’re going to evaluate that a little more and probably make a decision in the next couple days.”

Manhattan lands talented Nazareth duo
Thursday, 18 July 2013
ImageNew York Post: Steve Masiello has built Manhattan into a MAAC contender in two short years, and he’s done so with local products.

Moving forward, the plan doesn’t seem to be changing, either.

The Jaspers landed talented Nazareth duo Samson Usilo and Samson Akilo Wednesday night, building on this year’s highly thought of recruiting class.

“They’ve been talking about it for the last few days,” said Naz coach Todd Jamison, who praised the recruiting job done by assistant Rasheen Davis. “They called me, said, ‘Coach, we want to do this,’ and I said, ‘OK.’ Now they can concentrate on the season. There’s no more stress. That’s it, they know where they are going to school.”

Later in the evening, Manhattan added a third recruit in one day in wing Calvin Crawford from Middleton, N.Y., according to a source. The 6-foot-7 standout, recruiting by new assistant Matt Wilson, will attend prep powerhouse St. Thomas More in Connecticut this year.

Iona Lands 6-11 Daniel Robinson
Saturday, 06 July 2013
ImageZags Blog: Iona has signed 6-foot-11 Daniel Robinson, a former FIU commit who decommitted after the coaching change there.

Robinson said he chose Iona for one reason.

“To summarize into two words: Coach Cluess,” Robinson told of head coach Tim Cluess.

“He has been a coach of his word since he recruited me. I feel like we are going to have an excellent player-coach relationship because he is a coach that doesn’t take shortcuts on and off the court.”

He added: “Iona is going to be a great experience for me because the staff wants nothing but the best for their players. And Coach Cluess can really excel my career into a professional one and I’m all for it.”

Myers makes grade, gives verbal to Niagara
Saturday, 06 July 2013
ImageNew York Post: Wesley Myers won a pair of city championships, but his greatest accomplishment came away from the court.

It was in the classroom, where the recently graduated Boys & Girls 6-foot-2 combo guard truly got it done.

Myers verbally committed to Niagara this week, and barring something unforeseen, will become the first Boys & Girls player to go straight from high school to Division I in four years. Boys & Girls coach Ruth Lovelace told The Post Myers is a qualifier after finishing strong and getting the required SAT score, snapping a recent trend of academic shortcomings at the school for star basketball players.

“I take pride in that,” Myers said. “That’s an accomplishment.”

“He’s a kid who pretty much listened academically, listened to what he needed to do,” Lovelace said. “It was important for him and his family to qualify, and he got it done.”

Mississauga SF verbals to Canisius
Wednesday, 03 July 2013

ImageBuffalo News: Canisius College on Wednesday picked up a 2014 verbal committment from 6-7 small forward Cassidy Ryan of Mt.

Carmel High School in Mississauga, Ont. The earilest Ryan can sign with Canisius is Nov. 2013 and a lot can happen until then but the Griffs may have landed a steal if they can sign Ryan.

The video above shows how athletic he is and at least one publication lists Ryan as one of the top 75 players available from the '14 class. Here's what wrote about Ryan after the first day of Hoop Group Elite Camp Session II in Reading, Pa in July:
