Notre Dame landed a commitment from Class of 2018 power forward Nate Laszewski, who will bolster a young front court with the departure of Colson and others after the ’17-18 campaign.

South Bend, IN. — A lot has happened in the world of college basketball in the last 72 hours, and the season hasn’t even started.

On Tuesday, the FBI announced that 10 people, consisting of assistant coaches, agents, shoe brand executives etc., have been charged with fraud and corruption involving the recruitment of student athletes.

Players have de-committed, coaches have been arrested and fired, but for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, they managed to stay away from the fire and instead, added a key piece to their recruiting class of 2018.

A Review of Cornell’s 2017 Recruiting Class

Head coach Brian Earl added a plethora of talent to surround Matt Morgan, the Ivy League’s leading scorer, in 2017-18.

Ithaca, NY — The Cornell Big Red enter the 2017-18 season hungry to get back to the post-season for the first time since 2010, where they fell to a star-studded Kentucky Wildcats team in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament, 62-45.

Head coach Brian Earl, the man in charge of putting the current team together and bringing them back into the national conversation, enters his second season leading the Big Red. After a 10-18 finish in his opening campaign, Earl will be expected to achieve more this season.

With his initial year and recruiting cycle complete, Earl is bringing in five new freshmen and a JUCO transfer to make up his first substantial recruiting class as the head coach at Cornell.

Monday’s in the MEAC: Norfolk State releases their full schedule, inter-conference rivalries, and more

Zaynah Robinson and the Norfolk State Spartans will open the 2017-18 season on the road against the Auburn Tigers.

CALGARY, Alta. — Another week has quickly come and gone, which means opening day for the 2017-18 season is just over three months away.

November 10th cannot come soon enough, as we feel that we have waited long enough for college basketball to come back into our lives. Several teams are embarking on international exhibition tours, which gives us a small sample of college basketball in early August.

This past week, we had a bit more action in and around the MEAC. We saw our first full schedule released from the conference for the 2017-18 season, which provided some more insight into the MEAC pairings for other teams in the conference.

One team picked up a late commitment from a class of 2017 point guard to bolster their back court rotation, and we took a Twitter question and gave our own take on it.

Here’s what you may have missed from the last seven days in the MEAC.

EAST LANSING, Mi. — It’s been an interesting couple of days for head coach Tom Izzo and the Michigan State Spartans on the recruiting trail.
