Thanks Paultz.
Funny, didn't know we were recruiting this kid.
I get we may 'fan' on all of them--but gotta love the effort by Staff!
Let's go Johnnies.

It's one well-coordinated effort by the Staff.
Can't recall having such 'high hopes' in a long time.
Thanks again.

Staff has worked hard, but it will a battle to land guys like Iggy, Kofi, Lewis, Precious and Whitney. We could be in final 5 imo for a few guys & get in home visits. However competition is fierce for all these players and frankly we are not exactly a “destination program” yet. I would not be shocked if we land a prime kid, but it is also possible we fan on all those kids.

To their credit staff has not put all eggs in one basket, including lower level guys like Ledlum for example. Rather than getting too excited about our prospects with anyone, let’s see what in home visits we garner & go from there. Just being a realist!


"Just being a realist!" Yes you are. Very even keeled and accurate assessment.


Staff has definitely turned it around a bit in the appearances department with others adding to Matt's ongoing efforts on the road. Appreciate the realist view and the backup options being developed. Would only add that CM's approach to game planning really requires skilled players at all positions, a la the new look NBA or the old look Nelson teams, so to achieve the program ceiling they will need to start hitting on highly ranked prospects sooner or later or continue to rely on highly ranked transfers and dark horse recruits, which can be successful if not as sexy but with higher risk.

So SJU repping all 3 sites. GSJ at Peach, Chris and I'm guessing Matt in Atlanta and Luca in NYC?
