Maybe a new thread for 2015 recruiting??

"Team Philly 2015 wing Devin Liggeons says that Niagara has offered, his second. He also has an offer from St. Francis (Pa.)"

Re: 2015 Recruiting

I am disappointed in the recruiting success to date and especially the lack of a true big; however, Casey’s guys appear to be workers and the only place success comes before work is in the dictionary.

It is encouraging to know we are aggressively recruiting for 2015, 2016 as well.

Work hard and lady luck can’t be far behind.

Shakur Juiston : http://www.northjersey.com/sports/h-s-b ... y-1.730731
I know that staff has been recruiting Nwanwko for quite some time now. He may have even been the staff's first offer at Niagara.

Same with Pettway. He's built like a tank, too. He looks like a linebacker in a basketball uniform.

I feel like that staff's focus and eye have been on the 2015's since they were hired, which isn't a bad thing at all. It's also a smart thing for Casey to have a few scholarships open in the summer due to 5th year transfers and regular transfers. We landed Marcus Ware around this time last year as well.

Quotes on our targets from camps this past week:

"NJ Playaz PF Shakur Juiston is a jumping jack. Runs floor, cleans up the glass and is quick off his feet. Making plays for the Playaz."

"Shakur Juiston with back to back INSANE dunks."

"Shakur Juiston did all the dirty work for the Playaz tonight. He ain't the biggest guy out there, but he sure plays like it."

"Been really impressed with. 2015 SF Admiral Schofield. Hitting his jumper today, making transition plays. Big, strong wing that can jump."

"Got my first look at Zion-Benton's Admiral Schofield who is primed to breakout. Beast."

"Marcel Pettway is going to work. One of those guys that doesn't need to score to have a big impact on the game."

Niagara added another offer to its list

Quincy McKnight, PG

I like that Niagara is now targeting for 2015. Casey and staff are out on the road and making some offers. Will be interesting to see what Casey's trip to Texas brings....Hopefully one more big this year

It appears to me that Casey & Staff are covering a lot of territory...might be learning and growing by fire and that's OK...growing the NU franchise is the goal….and you reap what you sow...

"Lonnie Rivera, Class of 2015 SG playing for the BC Eagles (NY), just picked up an offer from Niagara"

"2015 Elijah McNeely, 6-1 point guard, L.I. Lightning-Mark/Cardozo H.S., Bayside, NYC:
An athletic point who makes effective use of hesitation and cross-over dribble moves to create offense. Good passer in traffic when drawing help. Gets into the lane and finishes with either hand at the rim against contact. He’s hearing from Niagara, George Washington and other mid-majors."
