this is great news. i'm very excited by our newest recruit. he's really skilled and can play three positions. love the potential of this 2019 recruiting class. it wouldn't surprise me if all four freshman get into the rotation plus clifton moore gets a year to work out with the staff.
Sherif Kenney was at one point very highly regarded with high major offers. From what I read he also played very well this past year as well. One guy said he was bummed he only got to watch Sherif play for 2 months he was so exciting to watch.
How La Salle was able to land him among the schools that had offered him at one time is pretty amazing.
In any event it looks like he is type of player that can help Ash elevate La Salle in the A-10.
Overall it looks like Ash has got himself a very solid first recruiting class. I am still very worried about rim protection but if this class lives up to what it looks like it can be Ash may be on his way to accomplishing what we thought he could do here. Especially if he follows up this class with another solid 2020 class.

sherif and ayinde played together on dc premier's 2018 national uaa championship team. they beat we r 1 which included high major recruits eric dixon (villanova), isaiah wong (miami), and qudus wahab (georgetown).
From American to USA. Not much of an explorer, I guess
south alabama was able to sell him on a package deal. one of his best friends from parkland hs (ac kelly) also committed there this week. kelly played for scotland prep who was the #1 ranked prep school team for most of 2018-19.
Program is probably 2 players away.. But it is certainly in the right direction..
Trust the process
This year's recruiting class was ranked #77 nationally by 247 sports before landing Sherif Kenney and that rating does not consider/include transfer Clifton Moore in its rating. That is probably the highest rated and deepest class in the previous ?? (you tell me) years. I'll guess at least 15 years and think it actually might be since the early 1990s. I agree with the "Trust the process" motto. I can't wait to observe these five incoming players develop, perform and take the program to a level we haven't seen, except in flash years, for a long time. Congratulations to Coach Ash and Ass'ts Kenny, Donnie, and Kyle for a terrific 2019 Recruiting Class.
Bones Hyland to VCU. Not a surprise but he and Ace Baldwin are going to keep VCU at the top of the conference it appears.

glad that things worked out for hyland. he's had a rough time of it the last year or two. he should do very well at vcu. i look forward to watching our talented guys go up against him over the next 4 years.
but count me in the camp that believes la salle made out better getting sherif kenney. sherif is a perfect fit for our team. his versatility will allow him to play the 1, 2, and 3. by getting him, ayinde will not be forced to log 38-39 minutes a game, and it will give coach ash more flexibility and depth.
and maybe it's me, but while i applaud the passion of vcu's fan base and wish la salle would have more of that, i hope our fan base doesn't resort to begging recruits to come to our school like vcu's did (and like rhode island's fans did with mcleod). i find it somewhat creepy that grown men and women beg 17-18 year old kids to come to their school on social media.
