With Negron's recent ACL tear, he will miss his entire senior season. I think he could end up redshirting the 2017-18 season at Loyola, too.

I've seen a few mentions of Noah Frederking but he's definitely an under-the-radar pick...Evanville appears to be his very first DI offer, and the offer just came a couple days ago..
Hard to know how he'll turn out in the MVC but the big factor isn't always scoring, it's the ability to defend other MVC athletes...
He scores a bunch but he plays for 1A Okawville (enrollment 160), who play a schedule of opponents like Marissa & Pawnee who also have enrollments in the 140-170 range.

That's roughly the size of Delavan, Flanagan, Henry or Galva...to give you an idea...kinda reminiscent of Carson Cuevas - who was an effective scorer and leader at Brimfield. (which may bring up memories that Frederking doesn't want to be reminded of)
BTW- #7 ranked Okawville did play unranked Brimfield in the 2015 Supersectionals...
Brimfield & Carson Cuevas handled them easily - LINK and Cuevas outplayed anyone on both teams.



In addition, Missouri State lands a fairly unheard-of guy from out east Mustafa Lawrence, 5-9 155 lb pg (also said to be 5-10 and 5-11)
He likewise also had no other reported offers beyond the Missouri State offer
He finished high school in spring of 2016 and chose to do a prep year and still seems to have gotten no other solid offers.
http://www.gardenstatehoops.com/lawrence-goes-prep/
http://www.ncsasports.org/mens-baske...stafa-lawrence



One more - Indiana State gets a verbal from a kid named Elafayette Stone
a 6-8 center (245 lbs!) out of Texas who transferred to Georgia likewise is under the radar but looks to be a big, strong kid..
Likewise, Indiana State seems to be his first offer..

...

Just to spark some conversation...here's my ranking of the MVC's
FALL RECRUITING CLASSES - assuming all these guys will sign...
There might still still be more but once recruits' season starts then most turn their attention to their own team and verbals will slow down..

Here's how I'd rank the ten MVC teams on who they've got verballed...

1- Bradley - I know I am biased but BU has two solid big kids who can help right away
2- UNI - surprise to some because UNI only has one kid pledged, but he's ranked #3 in IA- impressive but a weak Iowa '17 class
3- Wichita - likewise, they only have one guy but he looks to be a solid PG juco prospect
4- Loyola - 2 solid guys if healthy & develop- Negron's knee keeps Loyola from being 1 or 2. (rest of MVC from 5-10 are close)
5- Indiana State - they have three guys but a couple are pretty obscure
6- Missouri State - again - three verbals but fairly unknown..
7- Evansville - both verbals are good players, Frederking a good shooter - but both under the radar ***
8- Illinois State - the potential for a couple solid players but both played at really small high schools
9- Drake - seem to love undersized IL guards - they already have Ore Arogundade & CJ Rivers who average 4-5 ppg
10- SIU only one verbal and again, played against pretty small-school opponents - time will tell




*** someone ought to call the Evansville writer and correct the guy..
he just said in his column...LINK

".."Okawville has about 180 students and mostly plays against schools with 600-1,000.
....and
(Evansville head coach Marty) Simmons attended Lawrenceville High School – which competes in the same class as Okawville (the school Evansville's newest commit attends).."


but he's wrong on several counts...
-first- Noah Frederking's school Okawville officially has 160 students per IHSA enrollment criteria.
-second- they play in a conference where every single other team has 140 to 170 enrollment so most of their games are against very tiny schools. They probably play some much larger but they play most of their games against their conference opponents.
-last- Marty Simmons' school, Lawrenceville is NOT in the same class as Okawville. Lawrenceville has 350 kids- more than twice the enrollment as Okawville and plays in 2A, while Okawville plays in the smallest class, 1A.

WSU got a commitment from 6'11 Danish center Asbjorn Midtgaard.

http://www.kansas.com/sports/college...113472078.html

This puts WSU over the limit for next year.

More...interest just started up late this summer...
http://www.slamonline.com/college-hs...e9hBiDYWLyO.97

He's on the junior team of the Horsholm 79ers on the Danish pro league, that's the same league that ex-Manual Ram &
ex-BU recruit Lawrence Alexander plays in but Alexander plays with the senior club team of Horsens
..and ISU's Devaughn Akoon-Purcell & Iowa's Mike Gesell play for Bakken


also - wonder if this should have been kept quiet..
Last week when he was visiting on campus and was at a Shocker practice session....
his presence ..."caused several staff members to peek in to marvel at his size."
But they are not supposed to observe at all, right?

I don't think "staff members" refers to coaches, but administrative staff within the athletic department.

If he was attending a practice session, then coaches were already there conducting practice.

You may be confusing that with him playing in a pick-up game, where coaches cannot be in attendance.

agree- what's prohibited is the staff watching him if he participates in any way with the players

Couple of corrections.

- Unless something changed from last year, I don't believe they are in a conference for basketball.
- They do play some much larger schools during the season (Breese Mater-Dai, Breese Central, Nashville, Trenton) in tournaments, but probably closer to the 400-700 student range on these.

I do think that ability to guard will be the one thing in question.

I'll reserve comment on the ranking of recruiting classes at this point, although agree that the bias towards Bradley being the top is definitely true. My Aces I feel are definitely in the lower half right now.

was watching the Comcast replay of the UNI-Bradley game...
funny how the broadcasters seem to talk endlessly about UNI and barely notice who it is they are playing...
but one comment just made was that UNI should be much better next year because they have HELP on the way...
and they went on to tell about how Doug McDermott's cousin, Adam McDermott has transferred to UNI and he will help them a lot...

well, I guess that's possible....but come on....Adam McDermott is not Doug McDermott...
he's a walk-on sophomore transfer from Univ. of North Dakota who averaged 6.7 ppg there.

UNI could possibly be worse next year. They lose their only player that appears to be an MVC or above caliber player in Morgan. I refuse to believe any hype coming from UNI after there was talk about McCloud being a possible Freshman of the Year and even Player of the year candidate. There isn't a single player on that team besides Morgan that makes me worry.

I was thinking the same thing. I posted my thoughts on all their new players here-

Don't short change klint Carlson. He is their best offensive player over morgan imo and is a legitimate poy candidate next year. They need help at the guard spots and if bennet Koch could channel his brothers a little bit they would have a fighting chance. But they appear to be a ways away from what they had been the last half decade or so.
