For k ≥ 2, let M4k−1 be a closed (2k−2)-connected 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.
