Ryan Arcidiacono is picking up some major offers.

“Nova offered Sunday and Georgetown offered the week before,” Joe Arcidiacono said of his son, ranked No. 7 among point guards in 2012.
“Kansas, UNC and Pitt are coming to an open gym in mid-September at the high school.”
Joe added that there is no favorite.
“No top list or favorite,” he said. “So many great schools have reached out and offered.”
CALHOUN, ANDERSON ON THE ROADSeton Hall on Wednesday hosted junior guards Omar Calhoun of Christ the King and Kyle Anderson of St. Anthony.

He told us that he wanted to get the program back to the glory days of Terry Dehere. He said that he loves the versatility that Omar brings to the game. He has an ability to make a major impact in the Big East with his program.”
The 6-3 Calhoun will visit Villanova today (Thursday) and holds offers from Pitt, Louisville, Seton Hall, West Virginia, Virginia, St. John’s, Rutgers, Arizona, Miami, Vanderbilt and Oklahoma State.
