I like his size for his position and his court savvy also, however I am not totally sold on him yet but am intrigued. Like Drissa, he was a role/glue player for them last year which kept him in the background.

I know he was ranked a few spots ahead of Riley on one of the recruiting sites.

And he stands to take a big jump in production this year.

Would be a very good get - quality player, good size and another local high school kid. I can see Florida as an attractive option but how many high school kids from New York end up going to college in New Mexico? Seems like an odd choice. Wonder if there's a connection to a coach or a family member out there.

Pinzon is as complete a prospect as you'll find. I've said this earlier and I'll say it again, His size and IQ make him a 3 position defender but he has a 3 position skill set offensively as well. Terrific passer and driver. While some ?? his shooting he's very clutch when needed

I like it a lot if it happens. He has the skill and size to play multiple positions, including SF in a three-guard offense. It doesn't interfere with a Cuffe recruitment, but it's a good way to hedge our bets if Cuffe goes elsewhere. I'm worried about New Mexico, but hoping comfort with Traore helps out here.

This would be a pretty nice pickup. I also like that we appear to be making inroads with two of the better local high school programs.

I feel like Pinzon is the level of player who has been choosing places like Illinois, Rutgers or mid-tier ACC schools over us the the last few seasons. Hopefully we break through here and pick up a little momentum.

Very good local player. Point-forward type kid almost. Relatively polished skill set and shooting will continue to improve: Did a damn good job against Uk commit bj Boston this past season. Gut feeling, but I bet we land this kid. Mike Anderson seems to love getting multiple kids from quality programs like this. Would be a very good recruit for us.

Do we know what his timeframe is for making a decision?
