Re: General Recruiting Discussion/Comments

It would be nice to get a veteran shot blocker/low post defender with that 5th schollie.
Lots of young guys playing huge minutes next year.
Need to have an 'eraser' to cover up the kids' mistakes as they learn how to defend at the college level.

Personally, I'd like to see Jermaine call his AAU teammate Saddiq Bey and see if he could convince him to consider URI.

One thing that comes across on his tapes is that Amir Harris is a 'high-motor' guy.
When you combine that with high basketball IQ and athleticism, great things typically happen.

Re: Transfer Eligibility Changing ?

This will really hurt non-P5 schools. You sign an under-recruited player and work to develop him, and he can then bolt with no penalty? Lame.
You'll have kids forming "super teams" like in the NBA. Chaos is right.

Not 100% sure, but Nichols looks closer to that 'stretch 4' type guy than a wing.
He does not put the ball to the floor much in his videos.

Tate seems much more adept - he can get downhill to the basket already.

This would be too bad. On the little bit of video available, Gebrewhit looks to be more of a true wing.
In a position-less system, you need 3-4 of these types of players.
This kid looks like a more polished version of Aaron Wheeler - the type of 'big wing' we seem to need.
