In one hour, it will be announced that Harvard will appear in an NCAA tournament bracket for the first time since 1946, making March 11, 2012, a milestone day for the Ivy League program.
Zena Edosomwan, a 6-foot-9, 225-pound power forward from North Hollywood (Calif.) Harvard-Westlake, has made a commitment to Harvard, marking the first time a Scout.com Top 100 prospect has ever committed to an Ivy League school.What may make Edosomwan's potentially trailblazing decision most impressive is that the 2012 prospect has chosen to reclassify to 2013 and attend a year of prep school at Northfield Mount Hermon (Mass.), giving himself the best chance of gaining admission into Harvard.
So, Howland is not losing SoCal recruits to Ivy league schools that don't even offer scholarships. And Edosomwan would prefer to wait a year than play for Howland at UCLA. Great.
