19 questions for 2011-12.

Full team practices are underway at Jadwin Gym for the first time since March, which seems like an appropriate juncture to share many of the questions I've been collecting about the 2011-12 Princeton Tigers. Last year I approached this weekend on the calendar with a player-by-player wish list but I hope this alternative approach will encourage you to add your own questions (and answers) in the comments.

New Recruit - Hans Brase.

As the head coach at the Hill School the past 11 seasons - coaching in the Mid Atlantic Prep League against future Princeton players Douglas Davis and Noah Savage for a school located less than 90 minutes away from Jadwin Gym - Seth Eilberg has a decent understanding of what is required to be a standout Tiger.

In 2012 Eilberg will send the Blues' senior big man Hans Brase to Princeton and Eilberg feels the strong, physical 6'9" forward has what it takes to succeed in the Ivy League.

Brase joins Edo Lawrence and Mike Washington, Jr. in what is shaping up to be a quality initial recruiting class for Mitch Henderson.

New Recruit - Edo Lawrence.

Yesterday was a big day for Mitch Henderson and the Princeton basketball program with the verbal commitments of three different 2012 recruits, but no part of this unprecedented afternoon was bigger than nearly 7'2" center Edward Lawrence.

When he arrives on campus next year Lawrence, who everybody calls Edo (rhymes with "meadow") will be the tallest player to ever suit up for the Tigers.

This morning I spoke with Lawrence's prep school coach Don Gowan from Canterbury School in New Milford, CT. Lawrence has only been playing organized basketball for four years, two in the United States and two overseas, but already Gowan has witnessed some incredible development, especially this summer.

Gowan's exclusive quotes and analysis plus links to player evaluations, photos and videos of Lawrence can be found after the jump.

Profiles of the other two players joining Lawrence in Princeton's 2012 recruiting class will follow in the next few days. I'll add a 2012 Princeton Recruits page on the site after those go live.
