ESPN's Adam Finkelstein writes on his recruiting blog today about some of the premier high-major Division 1 coaches on hand to take in St. Thomas More's 78-64 win over previously-unbeaten Brewster Academy on Tuesday night. West Virginia's Bob Huggins, Florida's Billy Donovan, and Iowa's Fran McCaffery were some of the most prominent names on hand to watch the nation's No. 1 junior, Andre Drummond, as well as Brewster's two uncommitted high-major recruits Elijah Carter and Mitch McGary.
The Chancellors' win over Brewster snaps the Bobcats' 31-game winning streak, dating back to last season when they beat Winchendon for the NEPSAC Class A title.
Huggins has been no stranger to the St. Thomas More gym in recent years, having landed both Devin Ebanks and Danny Jennings out of the Connecticut prep school while his latest target is Andre Drummond, the nation's top ranked junior, who, despite reports to the contrary, has not named a list or discussed any specific schools in his recruiting.
He also adds:
As for Donovan, while he would undoubtedly like a chance to land Drummond, the more likely target is Brewster Academy's 2012 big man Mitch McGary, who named Florida among his nine favorites just a week ago.
For McCaffery, the trip was most likely focused around Brewster's post-graduate guard Elijah Carter who had recently named the Hawkeyes among his current list of offers that also included Georgia Tech (who was represented with an assistant coach), Wake Forest, Oklahoma, Oregon State, South Florida, and Rhode Island.
