    Cleanthony Early

    Brad Winton @JucoRecruiting (who sometimes posts on this website) just announced Early's official visits. ISU was not listed. Instead, Iowa was. Did we get some incorrect information previously?

    I asked Brad to clarify, but hasn't responded yet.

    Got to say I would have stuck with Cletus, so much great American history there.

    Haha. You are thinking the same way I did. The first few times I read his name, I thought "Clean-thony"... Maybe they should capitalize the A (CleAnthony) to help people recognize the way to pronouce it. ...Assuming that is the intended pronunciation.

    Re: Cleanthony Early

    Division I college hoops teams vying for Early
    By Ken Mcmillan
    Times Herald-Record
    Published: 2:00 AM - 07/23/11

    Cleanthony Early's recent performance at the premier junior college basketball showcase camp has been life-changing.

    More than a dozen NCAA Division I schools have already offered scholarships to the Pine Bush graduate, and at least 60 more have been in contact. Basketball scouts are saying Early not only is a pro prospect but also could make it as a guard in the NBA. And Early can't get his phone to stop ringing.

    "I want to turn it off sometimes," Early told SUNY Sullivan athletics director Chris DePew, who responded, "That's what you get when your star is hot."
    Scouting report

    JucoRecruiting.com report on Cleanthony Early:

    "Early's length and athleticism gave defenders fits. He is extremely skilled for his size (6-8), can defend multiple positions and excels in transition. Early has excellent body control when attacking the rim and pounds the offensive glass.

    "Early handles the ball well and is at his best when running in transition. While he is extremely skilled on the offensive end, he may be an even better defender. His length and timing allow him to block or alter shots at will.'

    Early was the NJCAA Division III player of the year and guided Sullivan into the national tournament, where the host Generals posted a 2-1 record and finished third.

    Early will make official visits to San Diego State, Iowa State, Washington State and Wichita State, saving a fifth visit for a potential late-comer Texas Tech got involved on Thursday, and Alabama has joined the mix, too. Sullivan coach Kevin Devantier believes Early can thrive at any of those programs because their style of play is a perfect fit.

    "All four schools are fast-paced schools that play four out, one in," said Devantier, referring to a system that calls for one big man inside and four athletic, versatile players attacking from the outside. "He doesn't want to get into a system that is slow-down and running continuity sets."

    Re: Cleanthony Early

    Pretty funny thread over on HN about this. You can second-by-second, trace the moment where their exuberance over Early becomes deflated disdain over him when they find out he's visiting us, not them.

    Cleanthony Early sets official visits | JucoRecruiting.com

    From Brad Winton:
    "Cleanthony Early (6-8/220/SF/Sullivan CC) has seen his stock rise quickly after a great summer and has lined up four out of his five official visits. Early told me by phone that he has taken an unofficial visit to Iona recently and will take official visits in the near future to Wichita State, Washington, San Diego St. and Iowa State. Early said he will wait to decide on where to go for his final official visit, but it will be between Marquette, Pitt and Alabama. He has also picked up recent interest from Missouri, Arkansas and Hofstra. Early said he doesn’t have a leader yet and will take a hard look at all of the schools who are pursuing him."


    "Freddie knows the game," Bird said. "I'm sure he picked up a lot of stuff over the years from different people. College is different from the NBA, but I'm sure he'll do a great job."

    Wtf? Being recruited by two BCS and two mid majors do not make you a strong candidate for NBA yet...
