WHAT MIKE SULLIVAN THINKS ABOUT JAMES PADGETT: With the apparent transfer of James Padgett from Xaverian to Lincoln High School, this is bad news for those in the PSAL. "It makes competing against a team like Lincoln even more tough," said Cardozo head coach Ron Naclerio.

Padgett is a player that impressed during the summer events. Many college coaches are likely now to trek to Lincoln and start recruiting him more seriously.

RECRUITING INTEREST: The area Big East schools had already been showing recruiting interest in James Padgett, including Rutgers, Seton Hall and St. John's. How Padgett plays this season will determine the level and seriousness of the Big East interest. But after watching him compete this summer, Padgett is worthy of high division one interest.
