Love this pickup actually. Sg/SF with Pg passing ability. His best days ahead of him when he gets in Iron Mike shape. Very skilled and the type of kid we need. Our recruiting class got a lot better and I can’t say I’m disappointed here. We needed a big commit here and j think Pinzon another underrated kid for sure.

Love it! Very happy right now. As I wrote before, can play SF so we can theoretically continue pursuit of Cuffe. And if Cuffe goes elsewhere . . . we still have a tall guard in Pinzon we can plug in back there.

I know people have been down on recruiting, but even if we only get kids who go to a school with the word Lutheran in the name, we'll be good for the next couple years on the recruiting front. :lol:

Rafael picked StJohn's over Xavier, Illinois, and Georgia Tech. Impressive.

I was worried with only 1 recruit in Traore’ who I really like. Adding another Li Lutheran and PSA Cardinals kid with skill is a great move. We must keep up the momentum and land these types. We needed more skill, and Pinzon provides that.

When Happy is Happy I’m extra HAPPY

6 NY recruits in 3 classes. I’ll take them from wherever, but with so much said about CMA’s lack of NY ties around the time of his hire, it sure is nice to see.
