Coached by Rafer Alston of the Nets, the New York Panthers won the U17 championship at the Hoop Group Summer Classic in Neptune, N.J. with an 84-63 victory over God’s Glory.

Sterling Gibbs of Seton Hall Prep, Deshaun Wiggins of Wings Academy, Winston Graham of Lee Academy and Ryan Rhoomes of Cardozo all played well for the Panthers.

**The 6-8 Rhoomes has drawn interest from George Washington, Temple, Rhode Island, George Mason, Virginia Commonwealth and La Salle.

From Scout article:

Ryan Rhoomes vs. Sidiki Johnson (2011): This matchup took place in the championship game. Rhoomes finished off a strong breakout type performance by faring exceptionally well against Johnson. He’s a big kid who seals and scores inside. You can tell his confidence is growing and this is going to be a guy that Big East schools evaluate and eventually offer. Johnson himself was good at camp and ran into a nice challenge in Rhoomes.
 
Where Melvin is a power player, Ryan is more skill and finesse. He's very long and moves well. I saw him twice this week and just finished up writing about him for the 2nd time. The report should be up within the next few hours.
 
i have heard about this kid a few times from some friends out in queens. my question is more about his year since espn is listing him at 2011 recruit while scout has him listed as 2010. I have also seen like with Brown varying differences in his measurements as i have seen listings of 6 7 all the way to 6 10.

As to recon's point a big man with some finesse to his game doesnt mean you cant teach him some more of mean streak and in many cases easier than teaching them post moves and a jumper.
 
This Jan 2009 article from the Daily News indicated that he was a junior so I'm assuming he's a 2010 recruit.

But one question I have is what do you do with David Hinton if he proves he can play this season? Can't keep him as a walk-on forever if he proves he can contribute, right?

Both media guides from the events I have from last week list him as 2010. Not sure why ESPN has him listed otherwise.
 
ok...i figured that he was more likely a 2010 recruit. only thought is maybe espn expects him to go prep for an extra year.
 
Seeing that a few of our prospects are also getting interest from our northern VA foes...
I wonder how we're stacking up with Mason in recruiting points these days...?
I mean, they have that pretty banner from the NCAA's, but...
We have FIRST ROUND DRAFT PICK ....AND... 71-50 8)
It would be interesting to get a prospect's perception.

Ryan Rhoomes, the 6-8 big man from Cardozo High, said he has offers from St. John’s, Seton Hall, Rutgers, George Mason and VCU. “I’ll probably decide in the next couple of weeks or months,” he said. “I’ll probably visit St. John’s because it’s close. That’s probably first on the list.”
 
So he lives in Washington but plays for a New York City-based travel team?

Where did you get the idea that he lives in Washington??
 
Because the Cardozo High I'm familiar with is in Washington D.C. In the "old days," the black schools in Richmond (mainly Armstrong and Maggie Walker) traveled to D.C. to play Cardozo in basketball, and at least on one occasion Cardozo came to the old Richmond Arena to play in a holiday hoops tournament.

Armstrong and Walker would play two weekend games in D.C. - usually against Cardozo and Spingarn - while be housed by D.C. families.

Now I discover there is another Cardozo in Bayside, Queens.

Incidentally, Ben Cardozo was a Supreme Court Justice.

Probably because there is a Cardozo High in D.C. but there is also one in Queens where Rhoomes attends
 
IMO, this one will be a tough sell for us. Rhoomes has three NYC-area schools on his list, and Mason has made big inroads into the NYC market the last two years with Pearson, Wright and Bennett. Larranaga has a ton of connections in the city, having played his HS ball at Molloy, and the familiarity/friendship of players who grew up playing with/against each other isn't an insignificant consideration, either.

That said, if we can land Harris (4 stars) and one of the other bigs we've been mentioned with, it won't much matter whether Rhoomes becomes a Ram or not.
