Longpre committed to St Josephs 2 weeks ago, while Dre Perry (Poly) committed to Temple.

I agree with Guru, Dulaney will need to add pieces around the freshman, as he alone certainly won't guarantee a 4A title.

Rafus may have the biggest impact of all the transfers, and with him at Lake, the re-load at Patterson, the City League gets even more interesting. Poly, after getting side-swiped by Woodlawn in last years playoffs, looks to earn its first state title, having made its first and only Final 4 appearance in '13.

The North Point transfer to St Frances, Travis Williams, is a Howard commit. The 2 Decatur transfers doesn't include the Seahawks Wofford commit, Keve Aluma.

In HoCo, there will be no state favorites. Long Reach, who returns its top 2 players, and Centennial (3 Final 4's in the last 6 years - 3A state title in '15), should be the 2 slight favorites, with Glenelg and Reservoir filling in the top 4. Oakland Mills lost their entire starting 5 from a year ago, and will be a work in progress. Hammond also lost its top 4 players.

Back to basketball. Here's my way to early MIAA/BCL order of finish:
MSJ
JC
CHC
Pallotti
McDonogh
GCS
SFA
Mount Carmel
Goretti
Gilman
Spalding
Boys Latin
Loyola


Who is even coaching McD? They got some good young talent and can shoot the lights out but wonder if they can bring it together.

I inquired about the Gilman transfer(didn't even know he was there until you told me although I saw him at the CHC game) they said, watch out!! Apparently the kid is on the UK junior team and had everybody after him to play in the states. Picked Gilman because his Aunt is some doctor here in America and has one of her practices in the area. They said he will definitely be one of the best players in the state this year. Won't matter, because Gilman has Daly as a coach still. Why the hell didn't they hire Gately after McD let him go is mind boogling. Also heard Diego wanted to leave Dunbar and coach there.

Well the one Decatur transfer to SFA is Henry, the football player who's hurt. He won't be playing for them this year.

I knew the U.K. transfer was the real deal. The best ever.

Btw, CHC freshman Justin Lewis was one of 50+ players invited to USA Basketball's Junior National Team Developmental camp in Colorado Springs, Colorado last month. Evidently he's the real deal and may be the best ever to lace them up at Calvert Hall.

On another note, I want to change that case of beer from Blue Moon to Negra Modelo. Had some yesterday. Damn good stuff!🍺🍺🍺🍺

So CHC got McNeil, I had heard he was going to Loyola.

You musta forgot. I told you over the summer. That kid didn't want to waste his talent at Blakefield. What a hoops wasteland.

I hear Dulaney will win the title this year. Friend of mine says they have the best player in the state.

That friend wouldn't be his father, would it?πŸ˜‰

That's right, you did tell me that. CHC is going to be serious trouble in two years if you guys can keep those guys from leaving the city.

ESPN, 247Sports, Scout.com and Future150.com all have Roberts listed between 6-7 to 6-8. That's a far cry from 6-11. Nevertheless, saw his highlights from the 2016 Alhambra and he is impressive. Runs the floor well, finishes with both hands and has nice mid-range jumper. Hope JC has a bench around their Big 3.

Let the kid at least lace them up before beginning the conversation on being the best ever at Calvert Hall -

 

A lot to put on a 9th grader. Way too soon to compare him to Duane Ferrell, who was the best freshman player that I ever watched.

I think this year's ninth grade Class has the potential to be one of the best Bmore has ever had.

Justin Lewis already has an offer from Georgia Tech, as a freshman.  I'm old school, but I like my freshman to play JV and use the year to develop.  I believe Lewis is only 14 too, so he may need a little time.

 

JC has the best 1-2 punch in the league with Quickley and Mathis.  Both high major players.

 

Longpre best big man in the area.  Kid is a nice pick up for St. Joe's.

 

CHC holiday tourney is in San Diego, California.  Don't know which tournament yet.
