Harvard's big weekend pays off

Crimson coach Tommy Amaker hosted a prospect party last weekend that no other Ivy League team would dare try and pull off. Since taking over the job, Amaker has targeted legitimate, top 100 talent. In my opinion, this is a little ambitious but he's stuck to his guns and taken his best shots with guys, unafraid of toeing the line with bigger programs. His un-Ivy League approach to recruiting has paid off with a series of strong classes. It's abundantly clear that Amaker and his staff want a high-caliber, high school all-american.
