Check BWI’s Lion’s Den for news on a new hoops commit.


#2

HOLY CRAP! Looks like I have to start going to Holy Redeemer games!


#3

Welcome Peter Alexis! A 6-11 BFG from Holy Redeemer in Wilkes-Barre.


#4

Wonder if my constant nagging of Lar if he had heard anything on Peter got Ed’s attention.

And I wonder if my update of the stats from last night game got Peter to think that we are serious here at PennStateHoops.


#5

Anyone know anything about him?


#6

Nothing detailed but ESPN had him as a 91. Class of 2011 I believe.


#7

He is a wide body. Good hands and plays for Holy Redeemer in Wilkes-Barre. The former Bishop Hoban. From what I have seen on news footage he is more a C than a F. Plays close to the rim and because he is 6-11 he just chews kids up.

Looks like I will be going to the McGrane Tourney over the holidays. Haven’t been to the McGrane in over 20 years.


#8

What does BFG mean? Does is mean Big Freaking Get?


#9

This makes me gay.


#10

Also, his sister Meredith played at James Madison and was in the WNBA.

Here is her info.

I agree.

6’11 265 lb HS junior? That’s a big boy. Wouldn’t surprise me one bit to see him grow to 7’+ by the time he dons the B&W.


#20

It’s always a great day when we get a 6’11 265 lb. commit (who is not from Europe–I threw that one in there for Rokk ;))
