Monday, 21 October 2013

ImagePhenom Report: Fishbourne Military School’s Lamell Washington called it which on campus this weekend at UMBC. The 6’6″ wing says, “It’s the perfect fit!”

Frederick, Maryland native and Tuscarora highschool standout said that his ability to contribute big, early played a big role in his ultimate decision, “I wanted to commit to a school where I would be able to contribute rather than just participate on the court. Being able to play big minutes, and even potentially start, coming in my freshman year played a major role in my decision.”

The big time athlete was able to relate and forge a good working respect for the coaching staff at UMBC, “there is a young coaching staff that is easy to get along with and relate to.” Washington went on to speak about the success and experience (as players) 0f the staff, “each coach has great knowledge of the game. All played at least at a division 1 level and also professionally overseas.”

Location also played a part in the Maryland native’s comfort level with the school, “It is a great perk that I am close to home. I fell this is the perfect place for me to grow as a player.”

Hatton, a 6-foot-2 senior who averaged 23.4 points and 4.5 rebounds last season and made The Courier-Journal's All-State second team, visited Vermont from Aug. 9-10.

A contender for 2014 Mr. Basketball honors, Hatton has been a member of Dixie Heights’ varsity team since he was a seventh-grader and has long been considered an NCAA Division I prospect. He said in June that he was most strongly considering the Catamounts, Winthrop, Samford, Montana State, Gardner-Webb and Jacksonville.

Marshall's Cameron Ward commits to D-I Vermont
Wednesday, 21 August 2013

ImageWisconsin State Journal: One of the pressing questions of the 2013-2014 prep boys basketball season was answered on Tuesday: It's Vermont.

Marshall senior Cameron Ward made a verbal commitment to attend the NCAA Division I University of Vermont, Cardinals coach Jason McConnell said.

"He visited Vermont (late in the spring) and said it kind of felt like family," McConnell said of Ward, a 6-foot-2 shooting guard who chose Vermont over offers from D-I Boston University and Texas-Corpus Christi, and D-II Winona State University, Minn., and Augustana, S.D.

Ward scored 23.4 points a game last season as Marshall went 22-3, losing to Lodi in a WIAA Division 3 sectional semifinal. He shot 50 percent from the field and 82 percent from the free-throw line, averaging 8.4 assists and 3.5 rebounds.


Binghamton gets commitment from Lower Merion's McFadden
Tuesday, 20 August 2013
ImageCity of Basketball Love: Lower Merion senior wing Justin McFadden has committed to Binghamton, he confirmed to CoBL on Monday afternoon.

“Binghamton took me up on campus and I loved the campus and I loved what the school represented,” he told CoBL. “It’s an up-and-coming academic school and I always wanted a good academic school. The America East Conference is a great conference for me.”

A 6-foot-5, 200-pound wing, McFadden’s stock rose from a fringe-level Division I player thanks to a strong summer on the AAU circuit with the Jersey Shore Warriors. Known primarily as a high-energy rebounder and defender from his junior season at Lower Merion, McFadden showed he had a scoring touch as well, knocking down a number of mid-range jumpers and finishing in double-figure scoring often throughout the July live recruiting period.

As his versatility increased, so did his Division I interest–he told CoBL at the Live in A.C. event near the end of the month that he’d been hearing from several Ivy League and Patriot League programs; the offer from Binghamton came in shortly after that event.

Despite being undersized for the four, Ahearn has been able to extend his game out closer towards the perimeter.

When asked if he believes he can play the three in college, Ahearn said yes.


Duncan makes oral commitment to play for Vermont
Tuesday, 02 July 2013

ImageEvansville Courier & Press: Ernie Duncan enjoyed his official visit to the University of Vermont last weekend immensely. And the more he thought about it, he didn’t think he would find a better place to play college basketball.

As a result, Duncan made an oral commitment to play for the Catamounts on Tuesday. He cannot sign a binding national letter of intent until the fall signing period begins in November.

“I analyzed it and I believe I will not find a better place, that I will not find a better fit or a place that I would feel more comfortable,” said Duncan, a 6-foot-3 point guard who will be a senior at Harrison High School.

He consulted with several people and they told him that if he didn’t think he could find a better fit than Vermont, then he shouldn’t wait to make a commitment. The Catamounts advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 2010 and ’12.
