Jared looks like he's an inch taller than Preston. Maybe they figure he WILL be 6-5 by the time he stops growing.

Oh, yes, absolutely. It's just kind of funny how some people take all these recruiting "facts" as such.

We'd better get the sneeker thing straightened out.
Expressions is a NIKE program and we're addidas.
I never understood the sneeker culture, but apparently there's
lots of money being invested by these companies in
players and programs wearing their brand.

The shoe thing, no matter how stupid it seems, is and has been a big deal. It's no secret. The funny thing is Expressions' two best recent players went to non-Nike schools.

So, it's not a roadblock but an added complication where there is often no margin for error.

Not sure how other people feel, but I have always though Adidas basketball shoes were the most comfortable in my experience. Not the most durable, but my feet feel great when I am wearing them. The last pair of Nikes I owned made my toes bleed.

Yes, but we are all old and think New Balance is the beacon of comfort.

There is not an 18-22 year old player out there who wants to wear Adidas over Nike. It's important to switch. Or Jordan which is considered a separate brand from Nike would really take it to the next level…but I don't know how easy that is. I know a couple players at a school that just went from Jordan to Under Armor…let's just say I don't think Under Armor would help.

Under Armor was the Big Thing for a little while, but that worm has turned and it has gone back to Nike.

Santos has to come to URI because he is a 6'5" lefty . URI is the natural place for Left Handed Guards to matriculate, and forwards too (Sly, Delroy, Hassan........)
Has to be watching EC's progression at URI with Pro Scouts watching him closely. Has to like hearing about Hurley's plan to make URI the Gonzaga of the East and has to like watching the rising success of the URI program. Used to be we would not have a chance at a kid like this from RI but with Hurley and Staff things are changing. Love that we have kids like this looking closely at URI as Freshmen in HS.

Bishop Hendricken swingman Preston Santos is a long six-foot-five lefty who screams of long-term potential. He’s already got a solid foundation of skill to his game, has got a few more years before he finishes filling out physically, and the potential to become a big and skilled guard.

I wear New Balance and my daughter calls them "old man shoes".
I don't need all the doodads to be comfortable.
They were saying how many players are now wearing the low cuts.
I wonder if that's giving them less support for the upper foot and
contributing to injuries?
Anyway, Thorr tells me addidas is a good partner.........
I wonder how Dan feels about this, since he felt so strongly about it
that he had it written in his new contract, to eliminate addidas?

Hendricken has a couple of good young guards......Justin Mazzulla and Preston Santos....they will be recruited by many major Division 1 schools....I believe they are both on providence college's radar and Santos is definitely on ours also....not sure if we are involved with Mazzulla....

.....don't know if DH's sons play basketball....and will they play at Hendricken?

Isn't his oldest a freshman at Hendricken now? Another young player to watch in RI is Chris Herren Jr. He's a freshman at Portsmouth High and easily their best player. He scored 30 last night.

They'll all be prepping shortly. Something to be said for bloodlines.

I saw Santos play this year at Hendricken. He's a lefty with some bounce, a good athlete. Should be a good prospect in a year or so.

Super high potential, but he needs to add strength both mentally and physically if he's going to play in this program. Just saying!

I haven't seen him play since he was at Hendricken. He didn't look like a great prospect then, but that was a couple of years ago.
