    Really smooth player, with quite a body for a 15 year old. I'm trying to figure out what position he plays? Seems like a 3 or 4? What's his height, and HS?

    He used to be an average sized kid a couple years ago then grew about 6 inches in a year. He's built like a man now. Might be about 6'3 and probably goes 185-190. He's played inside for most teams but the HS coach and now Edelin are getting him to play more on the wing and even PG. Even if he gets to 6'5 he's not going anyplace as a big. So he is developing his guard skills. I think this is his first year with Edelin. He used to play with another AAU program where he mostly played inside.

    Well, there's a first name I'll never be able to spell without double checking.

    Frankie Policielli is going to be a good player too. He plays inside for New Hartford but can play the wing going forward. This is the first group that Billy has had since the were middle school kids.

    This is a great way to establish connections with a potential recruit assuming it doesn't break any idiotic NCAA rules. Would be interesting to see if Otto's Grove could establish connections with Trevon DuVal and Jordan Tucker -- 2 prime SU targets in the 2017 class.

    Can't imagine how it would violate anything. I'm not affiliated with the University, I'm not a ticket holder, I'm not a booster or a donor. Other than being a fan and alum, I have no official association with the school. It's not any different than any other hoops blog having a kid write a diary entry or running interviews.

    Trevon Duval plans to transfer from St. Benedict's, so Malik took a visit down there yesterday as they're very interested in bringing him in. Would be a very good look for him if things were to work out there.

    Where is he in the recruiting rankings now, and where could he end up.

    Second does the Orange staff have and shown interest. If we do and offer. Gotta imagine we have the inside track on him.

    Too bad we can't keep him hidden in CNY. If he goes to St. Benedict Prep in NJ every elite school will be all over him.
