Surprised Iona is not interested.

I graduated from Iona college and the prep school is considered one of the best in the nation academically but I don't recall it being much known for basketball. Must be a pretty smart kid.

-- Souleymane Koureissi started the April Live Period with offers from schools such as Iona, Columbia, and Binghampton, but after a strong spring with Castle Athletics on the Adidas Gauntlet, Koureissi has picked up offers from Minnesota, Rhode Island, and South Florida. Koureiisi has been constantly working on his jumper. After all, a 6-9 wing with an outside shot is very appealing to a college coach. A rising senior at Iona Prep in New Rochelle, New York, Koureissi is primed for a big senior season, both in terms of his high school season and his recruitment. After the July Live Period, Koureissi plans to sit down with his family and plan out when and where he will take his official visits.

Q and A with Souleymane, no real recruiting specifics, but he sounds like a straight-forward and interesting kid-

https://hoopgroup.com/elite-blog/bigger ... koureissi/

I thought this was an especially endearing answer:

"How do your parents feel about you getting scholarship offers?"

"Honestly, they’re just excited that they don’t have to pay. I was probably going to college regardless..they’re actually proud of my grades. This year I ended up with an 86 average. I put in a lot more work in the classroom this year. When I try hard, usually I get good grades so-"

It's weird the article would point out St. Louis' offer specifically. At first I thought it might be a St. Louis associated website but it seems to be tri-state/mid Atlantic based.

Love his game. He kind of reminds me of KI.

He's raw, but at his height he could end up being a matchup nightmare.

I would be fine if we used our last scholarship on a high upside guy like this.

This kid is most likely a redshirt type, but I’d be very happy with him being the 5th scholarship. I’ve heard lines of communication are open

NRF, now that the 5th scholly is open again, are there any other guys we're re-connecting with? What's up with kids like Gebrewhit and Policelli, who are still both uncommitted?
