    I'll be honest...that was my original thought, since this came out so close on the heels of my recruiting diary that Malik sent me.

    Unless things break down at the last minute, I expect Zachery to land at St. Benedict's for prep ball next season. It would be a great move for his development, comp, and national exposure.

    It's a good thing you give the PS tidbits so they can take credit for the scoop on this, lol. Amazing how they scoop this board and either that day or next day..BAM...there is an article about it.

    Malik's been given a 4-star rating by ESPN.com (overall score of 80, so at the low end but still, it's cool to see. A season at St. Benedict's should only increase his stock).

    what do you think of their coach, Mark Taylor? I sent my son to his camp, and have seen him in action around kids before. I'm not sure what to make of him, but he can certainly recruit.

    My understanding is he will be at Nottingham this year not Benedict's.

    So, he transfers from Nottingham to West Genny...and the first game of the season...is against Nottingham.

    Awkward.

    Far down the list. He'll wind up being a very good player at a mid-major level school, I'm guessing. Maybe winds up at a lower tier P5 school like Penn State.

    Mika Adams-Woods (Bishop Ludden, 2018) is a more intriguing prospect.

    Mika Adams-Woods lit it up for 31 points in a close win for Ludden against Henninger. Kid is so good and just a sophomore.


    I heard from a nephew but don't know first hand that Malik Zachery who transferred to West Genesee this year got into some type of trouble making him wonder if he'd be allowed to play. Looking at the box score tonight, he didn't play tonight for West Genny so there may be some truth to it.

    Zachary is currently out with an injury.
