    Royce White enrolls at Hopkins

    News on a potential recruit. Bumpy road so far:

    Basketball star Royce White enrolls at Hopkins - TwinCities.com

    "Former De La Salle basketball star Royce White has enrolled at Hopkins and will begin attending classes at the suburban power April 7, Hopkins coach Ken Novak Jr. told the Pioneer Press on Monday.
    White, one of the nation's top-ranked juniors, was expelled from De La Salle in early March for behavior problems and academic violations. Novak said White enrolled at Hopkins on Thursday, but Novak said he has yet to talk with the 6-foot-6 forward.
    "I assume we'll sit down sometime (next) Monday," Novak said.
    Novak said an administration official at Hopkins told him that White and his family have moved into the Hopkins school district, which would make him eligible for the entire 2008-09 season. New transfer rules implemented by the Minnesota State High School League require student-athletes to establish residency in a school district during the previous academic year to avoid sitting out an entire season.
    White, a recruiting target of several major NCAA Division I programs, including the University of Minnesota, averaged 21.2 points during the 2007-08 season at De La Salle. His season high was 33 points against Minneapolis Henry on Jan. 15. His last game for De La Salle was Feb. 22, a 44-42 win over Minnehaha. White scored 20 points against Minnehaha.
    White joins a team that finished 27-2 this season and returns four starters next season. Hopkins was ranked No. 1 in the state until the final week of the regular season, but failed to advance to the Class AAAA state tournament. Hopkins lost to state champion Minnetonka 74-71 in overtime in the Section 6AAAA finals."

    Rodney Williams and Royce White will be one of, if not the, top combo of players on one team in Minnesota state history. They both are crazy good, and together, hopkins will be absolutely sick.

    Rodney Williams plays for Robbinsdale Cooper, not Hopkins. Unless he's switching schools (didn't read the post, i guess...)


    No surprise here. Hopkins has been the adopted home of many Twin Cities superstar high school basketball players.

    I hope they don't chose the big 10. Although that would be better than a big 12 team and watch them kick our rears every year.

    Not Rodney, but he will be teaming up with one of our former recruits, Trent Lockett, which should still be a great team.

    Re: Royce White enrolls at Hopkins

    I really hope we can get one of these two. A good 2009 class followed by a potentially great 2010 recruiting class could do wonders for this program. But, I might be getting a little ahead of myself.

    Looks like we have a good chance at Xavier Thames.

    It would be nice to land him, but hopefully he will produce more than the last Hopkins recruit at ISU. Then again, maybe Skogs was a home area Hopkins student rather than an adopted superstar.

    Royce White or Rodney Williams would both be huge gets for our program.At least Wisconsin isn't in the running for White anymore. They pulled his offer after he got kicked out of de la salle.

    Would you rather "go after a kid who has a history of getting in trouble", or one who hasn't yet learned his lesson?
