Michael Snaer Comes Through for Florida State

November 15, 2008

FSU got their wish yesterday when they landed Michael Snaer (SG/SF, 6’5″, 2009), top player who will probably get major minutes for the Seminoles. Florida State has made major recruiting gains over the past two years and could be a team to watch.

Snaer brings scoring to the Seminoles, and can shoot from outside, although at this point he’s probably more small forward than shooting guard.


Michael Snaer to Announce on ESPNU

November 14, 2008

Despite many reports claiming that Snaer(SG/SF, 6’5″, 2009) might wait until Spring to make his final collegiate decision, the basketball recruiting world apparently won’t have to wait that long after all.

Snaer may announce as early as today (November 14) , and word is that Florida State is in good shape with him. However, only time will tell, and as I’ve said before, Snaer has been meticulous in visiting and assessing each school on his list (which ALL recruits should do).

Snaer has several options and should be a player who gets minutes wherever he goes, and should be a stable presence on any team. Now we’ll just sit back and see what happens, or rather, those of us ACC fans will be sitting back watching the season get going and keep one eye on recruiting.


Michael Snaer: Basketball recruit to visit kansas

September 21, 2008

Micheal Snaer (SG/SF, 6’5″, 2009) a player who Florida State has been heavily recruiting, will visit Kansas for their Late Night event. The ‘Noles basketball recruiting has been on the upswing lately, but the battle for Snaer is one where he is carefully considering several schools.


Michael Snaer: No Lock for Florida State

September 13, 2008

Despite one rumor that rounded the internet a few weeks ago that said Michael Snaer (SG/SF,6’5″,2009) has committed to Florida State, he has not made any decision. However, he is about to visit the ‘Noles, and then follow up with a visit to Marquette:

About a month ago, reports circulated on the Internet about an oral commitment to Florida State. He denied the rumors, but apparently, will be checking out Tallahassee on Friday. Beyond that, a trip to Marquette looms in two weeks for Snaer, who put in the hard work when he needed to and is now reaping the benefits.

Seems like things are moving right along just as Michael said they would, and he is taking his time to make his decision. Nothing wrong with that.


Michael Snaer to Visit Marquette

September 6, 2008

Even though recently it was heavily reported (and rampantly rumored) that Michael Snaer (SG/SF, 6’5″, 2009) was down to choosing between Florida State and Missouri, he’s recently continued to look at UCLA.

Now it seems that he’s still looking at Marquette, with an official visit planned:

MU has scheduled an official visit with Michael Snaer for the weekend of Sept. 19-21, to coincide with Al’s Run.

John Wall playing pickup at Kentucky

I have no idea if this rumor has any credibility, but Wildcat fans are rumoring that John Wall will play pickup ball with the Kentucky team at 2pm today.

ACC Basketball Recruiting Roundup

July 30, 2008

Lots and lots of news today…

Earnest Ross video

Several ACC teams are watching NC player Earnest Ross (PG/SG, 6’4″, 2009), including Boston College and Clemson. Here’s some video of the player from Panther Creek:

Meyers Leonard commits

Just a couple of days ago we added Meyers Leonard (PF/C,6’11”,2010) to our ACC Targets list, and now he’s already committed to Illinois.

Michael Snaer: down to two?

Rumors abound that west coast guard Michael Snaer (SG, 6’5″ ,2009) is no longer considering UCLA, and that Mizzou and FSU are the two contenders.

John Langford commits

Josh Langford (SG, 6’6″, 2010) also has decided not to play in the ACC and committed to Louisville. I’m not sure how seriously Langford was considering any ACC schools.

Doron Lamb

By all accounts, Doron Lamb (SG, 6’4″, 2010) is going to be one of the best players in the class of 2010 and will get a whole bevy of offers. However, Alex is reporting that at this time, only Duke has not offered. (Updated: corrected)

Cody Shuffler

While Meyers Leonard is being taken off the board, we’re adding Cody Shuffler (SF/PF, 6’7″, 2009) to the list, as NC State has expressed interest. Shuffler is somewhat under-the-radar for ACC fans, but he’s one to keep an eye on.

Kenny Boynton

Duke fans are in a holding pattern on Boynton, where Florida and Duke seem to be the only two Boynton is considering

Aaron Dotson with Miami offer

USA Today is reporting that Aaron Dotson (SG/SF, 6’4″, 2009) has an offer from Miami. (It’s at the bottom of the Derrick Favors article, which is also a good read.)
