- KJ Baptiste will transfer from Wilbraham & Monson and he'll be attending Brimmer & May this year, where he'll team with John Powell, Jake, Fay, and Adrien Oliveira to form a nice nucleus for first year Brimmer-Boss Tom Nelson.
- According to a tweet from the Expressions Elite Twitter Account, "Ricardo Ledo will announce his commitment (at 3pm) on Thursday 9/1, at Ladder 133 Bar & Grill." That's this Thursday.
By scheduling a press-conference style "announcement" at a popular Providence spot, you got to think Ledo is going to commit to Ed Cooley and Providence. Otherwise, he'd have chosen a different platform from which to announce his decision. Right?
- Another guy who impressed yesterday at the BC Prospect Camp was Jacquil Taylor. He can be very effective at a high-level as a complimentary big man. Great length, soft-lefty touch, athletic, and he runs the floor all day. In watching him yesterday, it was apparent that Taylor's motor and his confidence have reached new levels.
- Nerlens Noel played in the Boost 24 'Dunkathon' last night in Venice Beach. The start of the game was delayed about an hour when Brewster power forward Mitch McGary shattered the back-board in warm-ups. He was treated for minor lacerations and watched the game from the bench, but he is just fine. Video of M&M's Vicious Dunk
