Hey guys, was just reading some stuff on Twitter about recruiting at the National Prep Showcase and ran into this tidbit. I haven't seen anyone post about him yet, so I thought I'd give it a shot. ..
William Howard is a 6'8 French forward that plays at New Hope Academy in MD. Says that he really impressed this weekend with 19 and 11 in one game and 30 pts in another game. Good strong frame, but also long and athletic. Can rebound effectively and score in different ways. SOUNDS GOOD TO ME!
In terms of recruiting, Washington, Providence, Rhode Island and MARYLAND have shown interest.
I know we have discussed going overseas for a PF for the 2012 class, and this could be our guy, except he's in our own backyard. If this kid is good, which sounds like he is, I think we should put the full-court press on him. He could be one of the late-developing players that could really blow up this season. I say go for it! What do you guys think?
