    For k≥2, let M4k−1 be a (2k−2)-connected closed manifold. If k≡1 mod 4 assume further that M is (2k−1)-parallelisable. Then there is a homotopy sphere Σ4k−1 such that M♯Σ admits a Ricci positive metric. This follows from a new description of these manifolds as the boundaries of explicit plumbings.
