Just a couple of quick points as we move on, on this Monday…..
Northern Guilford’s Jonathan Frye was probably the only current Division I prospect in the tournament field and he has already signed with a Mid-major in Appalachian State.
Some of the Greensboro Day School big men may be headed in that direction, but they are not there yet…..
There may be one or two NEG players that the DI schools will be looking at, with one kid that got my attention in Paris Scales, that had the triple-double with 10 points, 11 rebounds and 11 steals versus Northwest Guilford on day one. The Benjamin kid at NEG has also caught some college recruiters attention and many of these kids are still underclassmen….Sophomores
Frankie Eaves at Page will get his looks eventually and so will Jackson Kent and Demone Harrison and for at least two of those kids it may end up being DIII. Coach Tom Palumbo, from Guilford was at the games and that is not a bad place to be playing these days.
From Grimsley, Krechaun Williams may get looks later and who knows about the Sweeney brothers and how far they might go, but right now no DI….
Like I was saying, it’s Frye to Appalachian and that’s on to the Mid-major and that is it, for right now…..
Looking ahead, the big question is, are you ready for Dudley to return to the tournament and under the current format, who leaves if Dudley comes back?????
Some fans are calling for the addition of Oak Ridge to the tournament and that would not work as a long-term plan, but what are your thoughts on the short-term? It would bring in more college recruiters, but Oak Ridge could not enter a tournament such as this and even think about bringing their girls team…..
The return of Dudley I can see, but the addition of Oak Ridge, I don’t see this happening……
Again if Dudley returns, then who drops out?????
If you are a coach or AD that had your team in the field in 2009/2010, are you willing to walk away so Dudley can return?????
