McGair: H.S. coach expresses optimism regarding PC prospect Ricky Ledo; Friars in good shape in pursuit of JUCO big man Sanchez

April 2, 2012

With the All-American Championship behind him and an appearance in the Jordan Brand Classic on tap for April 14, Ricky Ledo’s days of competing against fellow high schoolers are dwindling to a precious few.
Naturally, the hot button topic surrounding Ledo is whether the acclaimed prospect and Providence native will face eligibility issues in his quest to suit up for Providence College next season. Such concerns largely stem from the number of high schools (a total of four) he’s enrolled at since the fall of 2007, when Ledo attended Bishop Hendricken.

Ready or not, like or not, the regular season beckons. Are some skippers wishing they had more time to iron out items of importance like rounding out the pitching staff or settling on a lineup? No doubt, but as those same coaches are already well aware, it’s go time.
