Recruiting

Post by SirGarethThe3rd » Tue Dec 11, 2012 11:00 pm

I wasn't sure how the Basketball recruiting season worked so I looked it up. This is what I found.

Recruiting for Division I basketball teams is also closely followed by fans. Schools are limited to having 13 scholarship players in men's basketball and 15 in women's basketball. The formal NCAA rules and processes for recruiting and signing recruits are similar, but the identification and recruiting of talent differs from football in important ways. Whereas football players can only play in a very limited number of competitive games per year, summer camps and traveling AAU teams afford prospects the opportunity to play outside of the regular basketball season. As a result, while football players generally only come to the attention of college recruiters after excelling at the high school varsity level, top level basketball players may emerge as early as the 8th or 9th grade. Players may also consider their AAU team as their primary squad, which can make high school basketball coaches less influential in the recruiting process than high school football coaches.

Another key difference in the recruiting cycle for college basketball, as opposed to that of football, is the time of signing:
First, basketball, along with most other NCAA sports other than football, has two signing periods during which all athletes are allowed to sign letters of intent—one in the fall (autumn) and one in the spring. The early signing period starts on the second Wednesday in November and runs through the third Wednesday in November. (Although football has an early signing period in December and January, its use is restricted to junior-college transfers.)
The regular signing period in basketball does not start until the third Wednesday in April, after high schools throughout the U.S. have completed their basketball seasons.


This is something I've started to get interested in, so I will try to do my best to keep this updated.

The latest I could find so far. Interesting that Sir Washington, who had verbaly committed earlier in the year, seems to have opened his recruiting again. Now he is getting looks from LMU and Nevada?? Hope we can hang on to this one. Also even though Chance Murray has committed to ASU its good to see Hayford going after some good talent. I don't know anything about the kid from Pullman other than Pullman has made the state tourney.

Isaiah Smith, 6'8 forward from Columbia River in Vancouver, WA looks like he has an offer from EWU and is interested. He has been dominating SW Washington for years and has had a couple good games in the playoffs as well. His YouTube video shows that he has some solid athleticism and he looks very protectable and could potentially be a star in the Big Sky if he develops some skills. His recruiting took off a little late, but from what I've seen, he could hang pretty well in D1 basketball. Hopefully Hayford can get him, it'd be pretty cool.

Here's a link showing his interest in EWU and a little about him and his season.

And his YouTube video:

Do we know the status of Sir Washington?

Isaiah Smith picked D2 Cal State Monterey Bay over us. He was good but I guess not feeling the D1 love

Here's video of new recruit Will Ferris. I've been focused on football lately....sorry.. :(

Kid looks like another shooter....we know how Hayford likes his shooters. Doesn't need much space to get his shot off either.

Found this single game video on him as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIt_W9LHiNU" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Looks like he can can do a lot of things along with shooting. Should add good depth for the 1 or 2 depending on what Hayford has in mind.

Thank you for Posting!! :thumb: I am really looking forward to seeing Felix this year. I think Coach Hayford has done a good job in bringing these kids here. Should be a solid year for our program and should be in the Big Sky Tourney again.
