According to Rivals, [Norvel] Pelle is a five-star recruit, the No. 2 center in the country and the 19th-best recruit in the country. He’s listed between 6-9 and 6-10 and roughly 210 pounds. There’s no questions Pelle is a big boy and not easy to move in the paint.... Pelle’s best attribute according to recruiting services is his athleticism, particularly his length. Pelle’s long arms allows him to be an explosive shot blocker as well as a strong finisher around the rim. His long arms also allow him to be a terror on the offensive boards because he can so easily reach out for put backs or slam dunks before any defensive player can touch the ball.

Adam Zagoria gets an interview with new recruit Phil Greene, a combo guard, and his coach, Andy Borman. Suffice to say, I'm excited, and you should be too.

Welcome to Phil Greene, via ZagsBlog.com

The ninth member of the St. John's recruiting class, Phil Greene is in the fold: "It’s a good fit for me," [Greene] added by text. "They play an up and down style which is my style of play and I have a chance to play right away. They plan on letting me play the point and running the two at times." St. John’s coach Steve Lavin plans on using "interchangeable guards," utilizing Greene, Malik Stith, Nurideen Lindsey and D’Angelo Harrison. Lindsey, Harrison and Greene will all be first-year players. Some have said that the recruiting class needs a "true" point guard; but the style that Lavin has implemented of pressing/ trapping will likely do better with interchangeable guards. That said, the team will be excited when Jevon Thomas arrives in 2012. A true ballhandler is always helpful to manage the pace of the game and make the tough play. How will the rotation shake out? We'll be looking at this occasionally this season and extensively in the offseason.
