That's funny. Does the Dayton board know he was wearing a URI shirt during a pick up game ??

interesting story. What is your brother in law's take on him?



I just thought it was funny considering that he's going to a school in our conference and is still repping our free t-shirt in public. Good branding for us.

My brother in law thought he was really really good, but one would think that most D1 college athletes look really really good compared to other guys at a rec center.

I still feel that if we had had 2 openings, we would have signed him in April.

Hurley is an educator, and molds boys into men.
.....I was told on two separate occasions [by two asst. coaches] that not all recruits want to buy into the discipline and academic effort to be successful here. You do not always know that when offering, but it can come up later, resulting in us backing off. You try to avoid that scenario, but sometimes it happens.

Delroy James. Taking these types could have huge pay off.

For the record, Toppin wasn't offered here not just due to his academics but because it wasn't believed he'd be good enough to play here this year or next. Likely won't contribute much until his RS Soph year.
