Always take stats from scrimmages and exhibitions with a grain of salt, but this stands out:

Seton Hall freshman Tyrese Samuel had 10 rebounds in 16 minutes tonight.

Remember the name.

Not surprised I said kid may win BE rookie of the year. Very very long and athletic. We offered him but could not be bothered to take a 55 minute flight to talk to him in person.

Lord, do we remember the name. He was one of several redmen.comers' favorite recruits from last year, but ignored by staff. Just crazy!

Ughhh I remember you telling me that story. This one is going to hurt. You were saying he was real good and you had told staff about him

2020 four-star Orangeville Prep (Canada) forward Matthew Alexander-Moncrieffe has locked in his official visit to Seton Hall. He will be on campus November 8-11.

Moncrieffe was teammates with Tyrese Samuel in high school.

Sounds like SH enjoys those 55 minute flights RMN referenced.

Willard is solid. Not the best coach in the world, but he definitely does a very good job. It's time for everybody to get over the Isaiah Whitehead assistant coach hiring. Willard is so much more than that move.

Unfortunately that story wasn’t unique to Samuels.

Correct and they flew to Montreal 4 weeks ago to watch monctieffe play. If you recall I posted that weekend that he told me he would decide from Arizona , Michigan State , Georgetown and a host of other very high majors but yet the Hall is getting the visit right when the LOI must be signed. Impressive work on their part.

We recruited Canada more when there were one or two D-1 players a year at most up there and programs rarely ventured up there. If we didn't have one weird and/or lazy staff after another, we could have been one of the first names kids think of when they think U.S. basketball. I guess it's 20-20 hindsight to have asked for more foresight, since most outside Canada probably didn't expect ball up there to explode the way it did, but what could have been . . .

Your first statement is absolutely correct. A couple of times I picked up Ron Rutledge and Glenn Braica at the airport when they came up to see kids.
In fairness to the prior staff Slice was making trips to Toronto to go see kids at Athletes Institute and Orangeville Prep ( it is one and the same school ) but we all know how that ended and there has been no contact with that program since. As for AAU kids right now the best program in Canada is Brookwood Elite which started getting crazy pub with Luguenz and last summer Quincy Guerrier. I begged the prior staff to come to see Luguenz in 2017 and Quincy in August 2018 but we only had 1 recruiter. 20 High major schools came that weekend but not us. Adrien Autry of Cuse gave the kid the love he needed and last Christmas he went to Syracuse. Reports out of Syracuse summer trip to Italy was Quincy was the best player and at present some mock drafts have him a late first round pick.
There are still a ton of talented kids. My son’s teammate Ben Mathurin is ranked the number 1 kid in Canada for 2021 and he is completely wide open. Another teammate Jahmeel Telfort is also top 5. Ewing and Louis Orr were at many games this summer.
Will the new staff get involved North of the border time will tell. If they do you all will be the first to know.
