It’s not often that a player finds himself in the position Jordon Bronner did and comes out with a scholarship. It’s even rarer that the player turns down interest from two other schools in the process.
That’s what happened with Bronner, the Iona Prep point guard, who committed to UNH on Saturday. The senior also received overtures from Wagner, as I reported last week. The Hurley brothers, Danny, the head coach, and Bobby, the assistant and Duke legend, came to Iona earlier this month to work out Bronner and offered him. But he also received interest from Vermont over the weekend after a player transferred and the program needed a recruit to fill the void.
It was an interesting recruitment to say the least. Bronner found himself without a home after the scholarship offered by Monmouth was rescinded because he waited to long to accept it. He was told the renewed interest in him was due, in part, to a recommendation from respected tri-state area scout Tom Konchalski, who watched Bronner play last month at the CYP Tournament.
