  • Williams to Iona, Hanner to Marshall, Fulton to St. Peter’s

    As I previously reported on my Twitter, Isaiah Williams, a 6-foot-7, 190-pound wing from The Robinson School, has committed to Iona, and 6-8, 203-pound forward Jamir Hanner of Philadelphia has committed to Marshall.

    “Williams is a 6-7 guard who scores in bunches, passes extremely well and runs the point,” said his coach, Vincent Robinson. “He makes everyone around him better and can play multiple positions.”

    Robinson said Williams turned down offers from DePaul and South Florida of the Big East to attend Iona due to his relationship with assistant coach Jared Grasso.

    The 6-8 Hanner committed to Marshall after previously decommitting from Seton Hall.

    “I feel as though the coaches are great,” Hanner said by phone. “I like the coaching staff. I liked the individual workouts. Their workouts are great. It’s a great team, great coach [Tommy Herrion]. I’m just happy to be a part of the team.”

    He claimed offers from Seton Hall, Rutgers and Rice.

    Hanner recently left Newark NIA Prep and could land at Fitchburg (Mass.) Notre Dame Prep.

    “Most likely that’s the school I’ll be going to,” he said.

    “Obviously, we have a close relationship with the folks at Marshall,” Notre Dame Prep coach Ryan Hurd said. “If this is something they’re interested in, we’d be happy to listen. We have not had a conversation to this point.”

    Also, Lamin Fulton, a 5-9 point guard from Neumann-Goretti committed to St. Peter’s over Canisius, St. Francis (Pa.) and Central Connecticut State.

    “He is a tough defender and a winner,” Goretti assistant John Mosco said. “He won two Philadelphia Catholic League championships. He has a great basketball IQ and will make everyone on the floor better.”


    6-8 PF Greg Lewis of Baltimore has a top 5 of Maryland, Rutgers (10/8 visit), USF (10/15), Indiana, and UNC-Wilmington, per Dan Painter…Amir Garrett of Findlay Prep has no officials set, but Oregon coach Dana Altman came out last week and St.John’s is coming this week, per Findlay assistant Todd Simon…Kansas assistant Joe Dooley was in to Brewster (N.H.) Academy Monday to see point guard Naadir Tharpe.
