Gianni Cobb
His year was marked by last second buckets in big games; a conference and state championship; a move from 22 to 12 in Prep Hoops Illinois rankings as well as becoming their #1 ranked PG, Sun Times Break Out POY, Daily Southtown POY and, finishing third in Illinois Mr. Basketball voting. He was 1st team All State.

Gerard O’Keefe
After years of playing for various IMG teams in Florida, this year Gerard played on the top IMG post-grad team. The guys on this team are going to Florida, Syracuse, Notre Dame, and Houston or have offers from Kentucky, Auburn, Michigan and Maryland. So he did not play big minutes. But in conference he was 7th on the team in minutes, shot .50 from 3, and played in some meaningful stretches. He was also named IMG Academy Class of 2024 Valedictorian.

Josiah Cunningham
Averaged 16.8 points and 5.3 rebounds per game for the 5A state runner-up. He was first team all-conference, all Southern Nevada (equivalent of all state I believe). Players on his AAU team, Vegas Elite, are going to Ohio State, San Diego State, USC, etc. He finished the year ranked #6 in his class by Prep Hoops Nevada and was their #2 ranked off-guard (although he plays PG as well, and guards 1-3).

Nigel Clarkson
Nigel just finished a post-grad year at Hargrave Academy. The team also has several DI commits. He finished the year with 10.1 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 1.4 APG, 1.6 SPG. Since he has been the least visible of the recruits this year, here are his season highlights: https://twitter.com/HargravePGHoops/statu s/1772002...

Mason Ritter
Averaged 14.7/9 this year. Region POY, Lexington Herald Leader and Courier Journal Second Team All State (all divisions), Horseshoe Bay Beacon POY, Selected to Play in Kentucky-Ohio All-Star Game for 4/20/2024. At years end Prep Hoops Kentucky ranked him the #11 senior and as their #2 Center.

With the antisemitism on campus will recruits say they want no part of a dysfunctional campus?

Actually, some of our dysfunctional fans may be a bigger drag on the program.

This is a basketball board. Give it a rest.

Give it a rest when the campus is out of control? And you don’t think that this is a turn off for recruits? As far as drags on the program perpetual apologists for Engles should give it a rest.

Supposed the third best player coming out of Europe in the 2023 graduating class. Averaged 25 ppg in the 2021 under 16 European Challenges games, where she was named MVP, but played just 8 minutes per game at Old Miss.

Let's hope last season was one of transition-to-U.S. basketball, and she can become a significant contributor.

Two solid additions to the Columbia Women's Basketball Program. Mia Broom is a super athletic guard from Washington State and Marija Avlijas was rated very highly in Europe. Incidentally, I agree with Chet's concerns about the negative effects on recruiting of the current chaos on campus. Obviously, the end of the current school year can't come too soon for the overwhelming number of Columbians. past and present.

I am especially concerned about the impact on Jewish players and whether we are going to lose anybody because the Hamas crowd has taken over the campus at all of the Ivies-see, e.g., Danny Wolf.
Dartmouth is the exception.

Yes, it does seem certain that the surprising support for the Hamas Terrorists on the Columbia campus will have a serious negative impact on Jewish players and recruits. However, it is important to remember that athletes of the Jewish faith are not the only athletes who are affected by what's going on at Columbia and other universities. As shown by the 9-11 attack on the World Trade Centers Christians, Hindus, Asians and even Muslims are also at risk.

FWIW, Columbia students just elected a Jewish woman in Students Supporting Israel as class president.
