Colgate has not signed anyone yet. Langel seems to concentrate a lot more on finding transfers than on incoming players. He has landed a few good HS players - almost all from prep schools - but most of his better players transferred in.

Thanks for sharing. Seems like a decent set of rankings. As far as I can tell, the only PL recruit in their top 500 players nationally is Jake Van der Heijden at 422 headed to Bucknell.

Bucknell recruit PF Malachi Rhodes, who plays for one of the top HS programs in Georgia, was ranked #259 in these rankings. That may be a bit too high, but I think he will definitely contribute.

Interesting quote from an opposing coach of Reed Fenton's after Fenton's Latrobe had a win earlier this week. In reference to Fenton (and a well regarded teammate):

“They’re both Division-I kids and Reed, with his jump shot, his poise and the way he plays, he’s a special, special player, he really is. And I would not be surprised if he is starting for Lehigh next year,” Penn-Trafford coach Jim Rocco said.

Pretty sure Reed's dad (Neal) played for the B&W many moons ago. I think he was a Naval Academy transfer, if my memory serves.

That is correct on all counts. And Reed’s uncle, Keith Fenton, played for Bucknell in that era as well.
