11/5 Recruiting Notebook
This coming weekend, beginning Thursday the 7th, Saint Patrick (NJ) small forward DeAndre Bembry will officially visit Hawk Hill. This information is courtesy of the guest feature he did on Zagsblog. Bembry visited Temple already, will visit St. Joe's, and then said that he plans to decide prior to the start of his high school season. The Celtics begin their high school season on December 5th. Bembry is a big-time athlete with a great motor. He rebounds, defends, and is able to slash to the basket. His jumper, while still a place for improvement, did show progress over the spring and summer. His strength lies in his aggressive play, athleticism, and defensive prowess.
Another wing player in the mix for the Hawks is shooting guard Ahmad Fields. The 6'4 DC native officially visited Hawk Hill in September. Fields recently told Josh Paunil of National Recruiting Spotlight that he was down to Drexel, Ole Miss, and St. Joe's, with a visit scheduled for Drexel on December 28th. While Bembry and Richards are more traditional small forwards, Fields could likely give minutes at both the 2 and 3 in college. The slashing lefty is currently at Massanutten Military Academy (VA).
The fourth player still in the mix for the Hawks is Abington (PA) point guard Anthony Durham. Durham, a 6'3 point guard who plays with plenty of bounce, took an official visit to Saint Bonaventure this past weekend. He unofficially visited St. Joe's last month. The Hawks have not extended an offer to Durham yet. If they do, however, prior to the early signing period, look for the Hawks to have a great shot at the talented floor general. Other schools in the mix here are Drexel, Saint Francis, George Mason, and Hofstra, to name a few
Saint Joseph's is likely looking to sign one or two players in this early period, beginning next Wednesday. If they do, it would come as a major surprise if it wasn't one of the four names discussed above. Over the coming week, news should be breaking on the recruiting front for the Hawks, as Bembry, Durham, and Richards all look like players who could be committing and signing between the 14th-21st. Stay tuned to Hawk Hill Hardwood for the latest.
