Recruiting trail

Black Bears have reportedly offered to Latif Rivers of Avon Old Farms (Conn.).

Rivers, a 6-0 guard, earned New England Recruiting Report accolades last week for his performance. He scored 24 points with seven assists and three steals vs. Westminster and followed it up with 36 points, four assists and five steals against Kent.

His season averages: 20.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 2.5 steals.

ESPN's Insider on Rivers: "Rivers is a power guard with all the tools. He shoots it well from behind the arc, has a powerful frame, and goes hard to the rim. He plays with a super high motor and has the ball skills to play some point, but can dominate the ball ..."

Rivers also lists St. Peters, Long Island, Stony Brook, New Hampshire, Eastern Kentucky, Lehigh and Central Connecticut as suitors.

This kid sounds like a player. Not many people have good things to say about Niang from Bridgton though? I wonder why they aren't offering Alexander Harris from Bridgton? I believe he is unsigned and a combo guard who can really shoot it.
Junior Bernal is going to be a tough cat to replace. He always had the defensive skill, toughness and rebounding ability. It's nice to see him controlling the ball this year and keeping his turnovers down.
