see: Joe Girard on 2d team, a pure 3 point shooter if there ever was one hitting 40%+/- well behind the arch, a natural parochial lean receiving visits from Villanova, Syracuse, and Michigan, completed unofficial visits to Notre Dame, Michigan, and Syracuse, and receiving interest from BYU, Colorado, and others, with in hand offer from Penn State, George Washington and others - but no interest whatsoever from St.John's.

Just heard that we have been in contact with him and his father frequently this fall, planning on trip to see him. He is a priority still for us.

Got a chance to watch Joe Girard play this afternoon. He is more than just a shooter, can put the ball on the floor and finish at the rim. The competition was not that good but he played hard anyway. He missed a couple of 3's early but when he made them, it was nothing but net. He is a tough kid who would be a positive addition to our program.

On a side note, Jim Boeheim and his wife were at the game because their son is on the same team as Girard. Jeff Allen's younger son plays for Albany City Rocks also.
I spoke with Jim Hart who is the team Director and got the feeling that whatever Girard's decides will be a family decision. This is a positive since it cuts out all the middle men.

Had a chance to speak with Joe Girard and his father when I stopped by campus earlier. They are very down to earth. Seemed very appreciative to have been invited to St. Johns for an unofficial visit. Was very glad that I saw him play Saturday since it broke the ice in talking with them.

He has two years left to play and will only get better. Glad that we are connecting with him early.

I get the feeling this kid is type of winning, heady player who will one day be like one of those mid major kids who periodically light it up in an NCAA Tourney upsets. Hopefully SJU stays on him. You always need shooters.

I am going to watch Joe Girard play at the House of Sports in Ardsley, NY on Saturday at 1:25pm. Heard he is a great shooter and very tough, Hope to run into some other members of Redmen.com.

Joe Girard and his father will make an unofficial visit to St. Johns on Tuesday. Hopefully, he will also return for the Elite Camp on June 21st.

Had a nice conversation with Joseph the other day. While we were talking Louisville was texting him. He doesn't give much up on info. I think we all know why he talked about Washington and BYU, he was asked about them. I still think he stays close by and as redmannorth stated if he wants to play starter minutes he will goto Albany, Siena or High Point. If he is ok with a roll his first year then others.

He did mention how much he liked coach and the practice. Said that St. Jean was very nice and a players coach. At this time he is taking it all in and enjoying the process.

Marley Paul @MarleyPaul22

2019 @TheCityRocks G Joe Girard III has heard from St. John's, Otis, Tulane, Washington, George Washington, Louisville, UMass, & Notre Dame today.


Ha- ha- hah apparently Paultzman is a comedian.

Marley Paul's message did not include the name "Otis".

For the record I have never met JG3 or his Mom, or Dad.

I hope to see JG3 in a St.John's uniform.
