Offers from Auburn, Dayton, Georgia Tech, Kansas State, Marquette, Nebraska, Nevada and St. Bonnaventure. A lot of those offers are pretty good.
I'm sure redbaron knows more than me on him, but he seems to a guy who's blowing up on the recruiting scene.
Actually, all I know about players is what I learn from Google (which I highly recommend).
I don't know if Atewe is exactly blowing up, but he's certainly become popular; one recent newspaper article reported that he now has more than 30 offers. He visited Nebraska a few weeks ago, had a good time, and declared them #1 on his list -- but he said the same thing after visiting Kansas State in September, so he's definitely open to persuasion. Atewe is a Canadian (from Toronto), so maybe our Canadian specialist has jumped in on him. I always have doubts about getting into a recruiting mob scene, especially this late in the game, but at least he's close by. Atewe (6'9", 230 lbs.) looks like he would go a long way to help our size problem; what I wonder is whether they're looking at him as an alternative or as an addition to Kelly. If Atewe is a potential third recruit in 2013, Donahue may be confident about a slot opening up through transfer (perhaps Caudill?). All this assumes, of course, that we have some kind of genuine shot to land Atewe, but presumably Donahue & Co. think we do.
