I have heard they all left without offers being extended.
got a feeling the new coach will be as bad as Ford with recruiting local talent

Hey Turtle i think you should do a little more investigating before you make comments about what you don't know. AJ left Morton because his father was always meddling and causing issues with the coaches and AJ! They did not run him off and the players and other kids in Morton really liked AJ as person. Unfortunately his father is another issue all together and your son will always make decisions based on what a father says especially one who has been a coach all his life. The family has moved quite a bit here in the last few years and the father has yet to land a coaching job thru his son!! Hint Hint

I only go by what I see posted on here and the Morton coach refused to comment on the situation --- IMO that made himself look like the villian ---also, see post # 50 in this thread

Why would coach Browm comment on a situation with a parent and a player that went bad? AJ"s dad was one of the most disliked coaches in the area several years ago when he was at Aledo with his older son and couldn't beat Farmington. I will give him credit tho his teams always had winning records where ever he coached his personality is an issue..

I think you need to wait a few months before jumping to that conclusion. I've talked with some of the local high school coaches and they agree that the local talent is going to be pretty good, high Division 1 good. Which normally means they won't be in a BU uniform unless they dreamed of playing on the hilltop.

What are you even talking about ? Aledo ? His oldest son ? --- AJ is his only son and he never played at Aledo nor did the dad ever coach at Aledo. Please stop posting.

Lets see Eastern Kentucky - Hofstra - UIC offered AJ, but Bradley didnt bother Oh Kay

For the record, Coach Wardle knows he will have no juniors on next year's team. That means there are currently NO scholarships scheduled to be available for the 2017 recruiting class.
Da'Monte Williams, A.J. Youngman, and Romon Douglan-Watkins are all 2017 kids. Things could change and more scholarships become available, but for now, Wardle needs to be extremely selective in handing out scholarship offers for 2017. He did offer Williams, and he likes Youngman, and I believe he will eventually offer him.
But the lack of an offer to him now has more to do with numbers than anything else.

I stand to be corrected it wasn't Aledo it was Abington! He had a player there I thought was his not son but just looked a lot like him. Sorry for the in correct info about the son and the town. Here is a quote from his info page: Youngman's greatest success came at Abingdon, a Class A school in Knox County south of Galesburg, where he coached from 1996 to 2001.His best season came 1998-99 when the Commandos earned a state ranking, won a regional title and finished 27-5. As I have stated he just using his son's talent to try and land a coaching job.. No I will not quit posting

well ok, since you got it right but where was he disliked ? IMO Metamora and I have my doubts about the 'family' reason for leaving Kentucky and he will not get a coaching job at Manual

I wonder which one of the 2017 manual trio, if any, is most interested in Bradley. I assume Williams will go BCS.

At this point, I'm sure that they all want to play at a BCS school. Hopefully, they all eventually find a place where they fit in and can play a lot.

AJ Youngman being touted as one of the top prospects at this summer's June 15 West Virginia camp
http://westvirginia.forums.rivals.co...ersburg.22632/

I suspect AJ will not commit until after his senior year - and until he's gathered and considered all his offers....
I think it's easy to see the hype & frenzy and attention you get (like Bielfeldt, etc..) when you are available late...

I actually think he'll commit next summer. His stock won't be any higher than what it will be after next year's AAU season.

I've heard that AJ Youngman has been lighting it up in the summer league games down at the Riverplex.

I hope he is still interested in Bradley, because he will keep getting interest from big schools if he keeps shooting like he is. I have reason to believe he still likes Bradley, though.
