A lot has transpired for Seton Hall basketball since the first installment of Tracking the Commitments. To put it nicely, Seton Hall is really counting on the class of 2011 to pan out. Part 1 on "TtC" was an Aaron Cosby fest. Since then, Freddie Wilson (Hillhouse, CT) has played three games, Aaron Cosby (Northfield Mount Hermon, NH) has played three more games, and a little more information has been unearthed about Haralds Karlis (Canarias Basketball Academy).
2011 Signed Recruit List:
In Hillhouse's second game on December 21st, Wilson tallied a game high 25 points in a 63-54 win over Wilbur Cross (CT). Two days later, Wilson led Hillhouse yet again, with a 54-44 win over Foran (CT). Freddie scored 23 points, including a half court shot at the end of the third quarter. Foran head coach Tim Swaller had some nice things to say about the Seton Hall bound guard:
As far as I am concerned, he is the best high school player in the state...
...Hillhouse's third period put us into a hole we couldn't climb out of. Wilson got hot and made some big plays.
In Hillhouse's latest game, they defeated Guilford 73-50. Unfortunately, Freddie Wilson was forced to watch the game due to flu like symptoms.
Aaron Cosby, Northfield Mount Hermon, MA - Kentucky HoopStars:
After a fantastic start, Aaron Cosby has hit something resembling a slump. In his two games since Part 1, Cosby accumulated 14 points in both wins for Northfield Mount Hermon.
On December 17th, NMH crushed Deerfield Academy (MA) 66-18. Later in the day, (I'm assuming this was some type of tournament), NMH defeated Lawrenceville School (NJ) 61-43. In the second game, Cosby shot 5-17 from the field -- not exactly an optimal percentage.
I'll take the optimistic approach and say that Cosby only scored 14 against Deerfield because it was a blowout and only 14 against Lawrenceville because it was the second game of the day.
Yesterday, NMH cruised to another win. They defeated Williams College's JV team by a score of 86-57. Aaron Cosby wasn't relied upon, but played well nonetheless.
No heavy lifting needed from Cosby 2nite in our 86-57 win. 15pts, 7 assts, 5 rebs. Aaron controlled the tempo.
Haralds Karlis, Canarias Basketball Academy:
Nothing new on the Karlis front. CBA is still coming to the States in between January 29th and February 9th. A lot more, including possible scouting by South Orange Juice, will be known about Haralds.
