Looks like we have a coach (or coaches) at the NY2LA Sports Summer Jam event in Mequon, Wisconsin that started this afternoon-
https://twitter.com/Scott_Adreon/sta...79132873072641

Bradley is listed in the middle of the 3rd column of schools in attendance.

Here is a picture of some of the coaches in attendance. Anyone see our coaches?

Here's a story about one of the Green Bay kids that Brian Wardle recruited, Carrington Love...
He makes a point about how Brian Wardle giving him his FIRST offer was important...

"Q: What was your recruitment like?

A: I was listed as a late bloomer, late growth spurt, got overlooked. Green
Bay was my first offer under Brian Wardle and I wanted to stay close to home
and represent Wisconsin. That chip on your shoulder and pushes you harder
and harder and in the gym you remember there is guys who get more
exposure than yourself and that pushes you to new levels.

Q: How has your game evolved in college?

A: I feel like I have always had the ability. I just needed to be pushed and
taught more things. (Coach) Wardle taught me how to use my tools to become an
elite defender."

http://www.creamcitycentral.com/spor...rrington-love/


there's also a report from Suwanee, Georgia of our coaches in attendance watching this team play
and the "Best of the South" AAU event...

Reportedly looking at someone on this E1T1 team from Florida-

Smile Hoping Fior A Break Through Recruit(s)

Got to hope BU and Coach Wardle are somehow able to land a 'break through' recruit the next couple years that can help propel BU back into upper echelons of NCAA Div 1 MBB.

Finding diamonds in the rough that can be developed over time is great,
but the program still needs a star that can draw other kids and fans....

Keeping fingers and toes crossed for BU!

Here's an interesting 2017 commitment - unrelated to the MVC...

St. John's must be kinda desperate - they went hard after Zach Brown & landed him even tho almost everyone else backed off when Brown got arrested and charged with
"..multiple robbery charges....armed robbery, credit card fraud and robbery by sudden snatching. The first two carried a bond of $10,000 apiece and the third charge carried a bond of $5,000."
He is still awaiting court date for these offenses...

BUT the kid is used to controversy - he was previously committed to UConn but UConn yanked his scholarship offer the last time he ran into trouble..
"Brown committed to UConn Jan. 20 and enrolled at Putnam Science Academy in Connecticut soon after, with speculation he might try to re-classify into the class of 2016.

But his time at Putnam was brief. The Hartford Courant reported Brown was involved in a postgame fight in Rhode Island and left the school in mid-February.

UConn and Brown then parted ways..."

Another sighting of Bradley Head Coach Brian Wardle at the 2016 Nike Hardwood Classic in Lawrence Kansas-
https://twitter.com/prepbullseye/sta...60116707692544

According to that tweet, he was watching a game between the ET21 Buckeyes and Kingdom Hoops Elite.
The ET21 Buckeyes is an AAU team located in the Chicago area (Westchester, IL) and sponsored by Evan Turner (grad of Westchester St. Joseph). They have several players who have D1 potential, and I suspect Coach Wardle was watching someone on the ET21 Buckeye team.

Kingdom Hoops Elite is an AAU program out of Des Moines, Iowa. Here is their roster-

There was additional evidence elsewhere that Coach Wardle was watching
Drew Maschoff, a 6-0 2017 PG on Kingdom Hoops Elite

as well as an observation that...
"Bradley HC Brian Wardle...also watching IL Wolves 16s vs Team Penny 15U EYBL"


more...

The prephoops site says he has grown to 6'4". Maybe it is a generous listing.

Name to remember Aussie Tom Fullarton - lanky shooting guard - we might have a shot since a couple of his countrymates are already on our roster

Unusual highlight video as it is separated into different skill sections. Also it is not showing him perfect in the games. Highlight videos usually show every shot being made and every pass perfect.

I can't get your link to work, and can't find it elsewhere. Did he actually name a TOP 4, and who is in it. He'd be a huge get for BU.

sorry about the link but in it he stated that of his many offers - he was setting five visits in August, and those visits are:
Iowa State, UAB, UNLV, Bradley, and Illinois

but here's even more proof....
the very guy who made that tweet- also is a reporter from the Champaign News-Gazette - and he apparently called Terrence Lewis and got it directly from him...

"According to Lewis, he is set to visit Illinois in August, along with making stops at Iowa State,
Bradley, Alabama-Birmingham and UNLV."


And he says this....surely knowing that as a freshman he isn't likely to play at a lot of the big schools that are recruiting him.
“I’d like go to a program to play right away,” Lewis said. “But if I have to come off the bench,
I’ll just keep cheering on my teammates and try to be the best sixth man.”

http://www.news-gazette.com/sports/i...it-august.html


in that, the list of schools later in that article is actually from a recruiting column more than a month ago, so that maybe changed
Also - every article on Lewis seems to list a different batch of schools - FWIW - LINK - and this one still lists Bradley near the top - LINK (those articles maybe premium)
..."Lewis, ranked No. 115 nationally in the 2017 class by Rivals.com, listed UNLV, Oregon, Iowa State, Miami (Fla.), Xavier, Illinois, Bradley"
