In the quest to hang banners, win championships and collect hardware we are teaching our best players all the wrong things. Everyday on Facebook and Instagram I see some coach proclaiming victory and holding up hardware.
Lawrenceville School's SF/PF Edwin Ebube is scheduled to take an official visit to Niagara right after the dead period ends next week. The 6'7 post grad has several D1 programs taking a close at him including Lehigh, Rider and Niagara. He is a proven winner and really strong student. Programs looking for a that profile in a player should take the time to head down to Princeton and recruit him.
Jesus Cruz is one of the best available unsigned combo guards as recently reported by New England Recruiting Report. The 6'5 combo guard is getting interest from several D1 programs including American University, Marist College and UNC Greensboro. Expect more D1 programs to take a close look at Cruz who has the size and skill to help a lot of programs.
2017 point guard Josh Colon recently received his first D1 offer from VMI. The underrated guard who led Blue Ridge to a Virginia Independent Private School Division 2 State title had over 10 D2 offers before he received the offer from Virginia Military Academy. Look for Colon to receive more offers in the coming weeks. He was the player of the year in the state on a team full of high major talent. If you need a PG he is your guy!
