Sunday's WAC basketball potpourri

Four to go as Tony Brown occupies the #5 spot in Matt Sonnenberg's rundown.


From Alex Schwartz (near the bottom of the article) comes word that former McClymonds High big Jamaree Strickland is playing basketball for the Hunting Park Warriors club team out of Philadelphia and will be attending a prep school in North Carolina.

San Jose State University has offered: "In addition to the Spartans, Hajj noted that Strickland is hearing from San Francisco, Missouri State and CSU Bakersfield..."

Strickland hasn't played competitive hoops for two or so years due to an ACL tear and resulting complications so it's a matter of shaking off rust, getting into playing shape and seeing what is the level of competition at which he can play and succeed. Here's a link with more information. 

Here's the HPW Facebook page.


From Alex Kline/The Recruit Scoop: "Louisiana Tech has offered 2013 Carolina Hurricanes (NC) SF John Edwards"

No, not THAT john Edwards, the 6-foot-6 prospect out of Charlotte.


From the LA TIMES and for those with especially sharp memories:

 "Bennie Boatwright, a 6-foot-7 sophomore at Alemany, has picked up an offer from New Mexico State"

Bravo to Tennessee for its Twitter take. Rather than simply saying no due to worries about what might happen, their approach is preparation and knowledge. Consider it a part of the Volunteer overall education.

So which WAC schools will make it a trend? C'mon.


Jeff Linder strikes again: "You can tell the economy has been down with the lack of tattoos on the younger players"
