Holy Cross Guard's Recruiting List Changes

Reporter Frank Mantesta has a story on Holy Cross guard Blaise Ffrench ...

The maturation of Blaise Ffrench, the 6-foot-1 basketball player from Holy Cross High School, as a point guard is just about complete. With star player Sylven Landesberg and three other very nice division one prospects, the job of a point guard can be a great challenge every night.

But Blaise has become a floor general and a point guard who can score as well.

As reported on this web site over the past few weeks, the interest of Blaise has picked up after his strong showing in Florida City Of Palms tournament. Local schools knew how good he was for a while. Manhattan has been on him for a long time along with Stony Brook. He took a vist to Quinnipiac and had nice things to say about the school so they are still in the mix.

We caught up with his uncle after the Rice game. Irv Gotti, the music mogul, told us that UTEP assistant Tony Madlock was at the Bishop Loughlin game to see Blaise they are interested in coming to see him again.

Akron also as been very aggressive and is hoping to come as well to watch Blaise play. Mr. Gotti told us: "Blaise is very interested in the idea of playing at UTEP in the very good Conference USA."

He also said: "Blaise would probably wait till after the (CHSAA) playoffs for his decision."

Auburn of the SEC has also inquired about the skill level of Ffrench. So this recruiting race is far from being over and new schools are getting involved each week.
