I like the foray into the Midwest, where Holy Cross has ventured far less than schools like Bucknell and Lehigh. Of the 40 players we've reported contacts with, 10 are from that region - six from Michigan, three from Ohio, and one from Illinois. Of the six Michigan kids, four are ranked among the top ten 2019s in the state by one source (scroll down). Who was the last Holy Cross player from Michigan?

Juan Pegues was listed in HC game programs as being from Delaware but played his HS basketball in Michigan at Orchard Lake St. Mary's (a school with both boarders and Day students). NAD is correct that the last native Michiganders to play for us were Mashburn and Walker. All 6 of the named players (Grayson, Moulton, Tropf, Mashburn, Walker and Pegues) were 2-3 yr. starters. Hopefully, if we land one or more of the 2019 contacts, we'll be able to say the same.
St. Mary's Ryken forward Mekhi Long picked up an offer from Towson on Sunday, according to multiple reports. It was also reported that Long, a Class of 2019 wing, was contacted by coaches from Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, Connecticut, Marquette, Oregon State, Rhode Island, George Mason, Tulsa and Holy Cross on Thursday. Long already held offers from Kansas State, Virginia Tech, Rhode Island, James Madison, Hampton and Old Dominion. It is unclear whether Long will stay at St. Mary's Ryken, which lost its head coach Pat Behan to St. John's earlier in June. A source told The Post on Monday that Long is considering a transfer to Massanutten Military Academy in Woodstock, Va. Long plays for Team St8ment on the AAU circuit....
Holy Cross contacted Gonzaga guard Josh Watts and St. Stephen's/St. Agnes forward Charles Thompson, Martin told The Post. Both play for Team Takeover and hold a lone offer from Columbia.
Maret guard Raphe Ayres was contacted by Cornell, Holy Cross and Loyola (Md.) this past Thursday, he told The Post. That was the first day that Ayres, who is 6-foot-5 and in the Class of 2019, could be directly contacted by college coaches. Ayres said that Loyola told him it was planning to see him play soon. He previously received interest from Missouri, Columbia, Division III Wesleyan and a few other D-III schools. Ayres plays AAU basketball for the Arlington Rockets.
