Harrison Schaen Gives Verbal To Princeton,
Awaits Admission Decision--(Nov. 7, 2002)

According to a story in today's Trenton Times, Harrison Schaen has reportedly told Princeton coaches that he wants to attend Princeton rather than either Penn or UCSB.  He still has not been cleared for admission yet, and thus could still be recruited by other schools, but according to the story, he has also applied for Early Admission to Princeton.  

While not discussed in the article, an applicant can utilize Princeton's Early Admission Program only if he or she has not applied for early decision or early action at any other schools, a move which, in Schaen's case,  would be consistent with the verbal commitment reported today in the Trenton Times.   Here's the story: 

Schaen wants to join Tigers

Thursday, November 07, 2002


The Penn and Princeton basketball programs battle for many of the same recruits. If senior power forward Harrison Schaen of Mater Dei in Santa Ana, Calif., gains early acceptance to Princeton in the next month, the Tigers will win one from the Quakers.

The 6-foot-9, 205-pound Schaen has a playing style tailor-made for the Tigers and averaged 13 points and eight rebounds as a junior. He said last night that he has told the Princeton coaching staff he wants to go there over Penn and his third choice, Cal-Santa Barbara.

"It's the best school in the country," Schaen said, referring to the U.S. News & World Report survey.

Schaen would be part of a standout recruiting class along with 6-1 point guard Max Schaffer of DePaul High in Wayne and 6-7 forward Brian Elbogen of California High School in San Ramon, Calif. They also are awaiting early admission.
