With the college season over for the vast majority of programs, coaches have the opportunity to get out on the road and recruit. Here are five seniors that folks should check out.
| 6’8 F Neumann-Goretti
The Saints winning by at least 25 points in the first two rounds and Adewale playing limited minutes as a result hasn’t stopped him from putting up big numbers. He handed Middletown 17 points and 13 rebounds, then gave Bethlehem Catholic 18 points, 12 rebounds and 4 blocks. His ability to play at the level or drop in pick-and-roll coverage and dominate the offensive glass make him a major factor in NG’s attempt to bring home the 4A title, again, with Bishop Shanahan up next. Hampton University recently offered.
Mike Bednostin | 6’10 C Trinity
Trinity’s perimeter players love to feed Bednostin down in the post and he isn’t shy about getting all of those touches. He scored 19 against MCS, almost all of which came from 3 feet and in. But Bednostin isn’t simply a plotting center. He sets high screens and moves the ball well, offensively, and stunts and tag rollers while protecting the rim, defensively. Coaches from Penn, St. Francis (PA), and Harcum were in to see him Wednesday night. Trinity lines it up with Devon Prep in the quarterfinals.
| 5’10 G West Catholic
15 points and 7 assists versus Holy Redeemer was just a regular day at the office for Clark. He’s able to control the pace of the game on both ends, getting steals and forcing turnovers as well. Defenders have a difficult time contesting his shots because Budd gets to his floater and mid-range pull-up so quickly. His confidence from three is growing too. Choosing to re-open his recruitment after a coaching change at Coppin St, Clark could be a cornerstone in a number of programs. His Burrs play Executive Education on Saturday.
| 6’6 W Reading
In his wiry 6’5 frame, Rodriguez plays with all of the fire and smarts that you expect from one of Rick Perez’s guys. His 15 points against Upper Darby was the icing on the cake for him. On- and off-ball, he guards like his life depends on it. The late-bloomer, who sprouted 3 inches over the summer, is always down to put someone on a poster with a dunk or by blocking a shot. He also has the 3-ball to match. Harcum College is vying for his service. Others could circle the wagon as the Red Knights take on New Castle on Saturday.
| 6’5 W Radnor
Event creation on defense – steals, blocks, deflections – is Thorton’s calling card. He has the lateral mobility and vertical pop to change games on that end. That’s exactly what he did in round 2 versus West Philly. Thornton only scored 10 points on offense, but he offers a lot there too. His improved handle helps him tap into his movement skills as a slasher, and he already has the feel to be devastating as a cutter and spot-up shooter. He has multiple D2 options on the table and they should increase as he and the Raptors try to get their second win versus Archbishop Ryan this season, in the quarterfinals.
