FRANK MANTESTA'S REPORT FROM IS8 WITH NEW INFORMATION: The 6-foot-6 forward from Boy's and Girl's High School in Brooklyn, New York has alot going on. He has signed up for the Kaplan course for his SAT in January.

George Mason, Iowa State, and St. Bonaventure have been added to the schools that are intersted in David.

Houston, VCU, Rutgers, Clemson, Ohio University, Providence, and Seton Hall were already interested in Imes when I saw him play at the Eastern Invitational camp in Trenton, New Jersey last July evaluation period.

George Mason made a lasting impression on him when the staff came to a open gym workout. But he said Houston was the first school to take an interest in him recruiting wise.

"I would like to visit Houston first and then George Mason," Imes said. "I have to trust the coach wherever I go."

Imes said he would rely upon head coach Ruth Lovelace to help him sort out his college decicion.

You could tell there was a special player/coach relationship there. And it is something that will be important to David for his next playing experience.

FRANK MANTESTA'S PREVIOUS VIEW OF DAVID IMES' INDIVIDUAL GAME: David can handle inside or outside. He shoots well off his dribble. Has the ability to create his own shot. He is long and strong. David can post up and score at will in the paint. He can light it up also from outside. He is strong with the ball enabling him to get his shot off.

MIKE SULLIVAN'S PREVIOUS VIEW OF DAVID IMES' INDIVIDUAL GAME: David is a player that has shown in the past that he has the ability to score on most spots on the floor. What I like about him his his ability to retrieve loose balls among many bodies. He works hard enough to be a solid college player.
