: : seems like great kid, kid can really play. BUT doubt he's going on full ride, sure daddy's paying with no problem. him getting to a d1 school and him actually playing are two totally seperate things.. time will tell
: If he's really committed to Harvard, there are no "full rides". No Ivy League school offers athletic grants-in-aid (or as they are commonly referred to "scholarships" or "full rides"). The Ivy schools only offer academic or need-based financial assistance and/or grants.
: That said, most athletes who attend an Ivy League school receive some form of financial assistance to attend the Ivies. But no one receives a "full=ride" like the rest of Division I NCAA colleges and universities.
: So yes, his father will pay some portion of his tuition and room and board.
: Spencer will have no trouble playing and starting at Harvard. Very much in the mold of other guards who have played at Harvard (like Jimmy Goffredo from La Canada, or Drew Housman from Calabasas, or Jeremy Lin from Palo Alto, or Brandyn Curry -- no relation to Steph and Seth, from N.C., or Corbin Miller from Utah, or Oliver McNally from San Francisco, or Siyani Chambers from Minnesota, or more recently Tommy McCarthy from La Costa Canyon, and Bryce Aiken from N.J. (Ivy League Rookie of the Year).
: Spencer fits exactly the mold of the type of player that Tommy Amaker loves in a lead guard-- tenacious, great feel for the game and can shoot the lights out.
: If he attends Harvard, he will play. No doubt, he will play. A lot.
harvard gonna be playing a lot of zone....A LOT..LOL
