September 20 Notebook
- The NE Ballas hosted a one day tournament at the Reggie Lewis Center this past Sunday and Team LOX won the Chip with wins over Brimmer & May, New Mission, and West Roxbury. They were led all day by the strong play of '15 point guard Juwan Gooding. Also with strong performances were small forward Kenny Ramos, combo-forward Zach Gattereau, shooting guard Omar Orriols, and four-man Troy Dacosta.
- After being declared ineligible to compete at St Johns this season, Jakarr Sampson, who attended Brewster Academy last year, will return to Brewster for a post-grad year. The addition of Sampson, ESPN #32 in the Class of 2011, might push the talent meter on the Brewster roster to the ridiculous level.
- The Ricky Ledo situation has finally resolved itself as he has re-landed at South Kent, where he began last year as a junior before leaving for Notre Dame Prep mid-year.. The addition of Ledo gives Head Coach Kelvin Jefferson's already-talented roster a shot in the arm which makes them a contender for the top spot in New England.
- According to Alex Kline of The Recruit Scoop, Syracuse, Rutgers & Xavier watched '14 Salisbury School forward Chris McCullough workout last night..
- According to Brewster Head Coach Jason Smith, Kentucky Head Coach John Calipari and Assistant Coach Orlando Antigua visited small forward TJ Warren on Saturday.
- As it was pointed out to me by @FriarFrenzy on Twitter, at the time that he announced a final list of four schools, Zach Auguste also threw in the possibility that a 5th school could also enter the mix. Many assumed that 5th school to be Providence, however, when it was reported last week that Notre Dame was at New Hampton to watch Auguste work out, it was evident that either a 6th school had entered the race or that Notre Dame, and not Providence, was that 5th school. Well today, we found out that Notre Dame has indeed successfully invaded the Final 4 City of West Virginia, Florida, Marquette, and Georgia Tech, (although in the defense of their armies, a road into the city was purposely left unguarded after Auguste announced for the possibility of a 5th contender for the crown) as earlier this afternoon, Dave Telep of ESPN reported that Auguste will visit Notre Dame this week and could be in South Bend as early as tomorrow.
