Does anybody know this guy? Is he credible?

Phavre changed his handle so draw your own conclusion on him.

Of course Greg could come back

I don't know but he claims to have a big Johnson
Phavre is about as reliable as a three dollar bill

No he's not credible, that's Pharve Phan, he just like to pretend like he has sources, but he's just a huge troll trying to get followers on twitter.  He literally just seen Zach and other people on message boards and twitter talk about Greg, so he'll tweet he's coming back, if he doesn't he will say he changed his mind, and if he does, he will spam zach and other reports to tell them to credit him for saying it first.

If looking for credible information avoid him, BannerMtnMan, and Dylan Kelly all of them spam the #sjubb tag daily on twitter and none of them actually know anything or have sources.

SLYFOXX1968 post=431771 wrote: Why wouldn’t Greg be pursued by such major schools as listed ?  When healthy he is known player with Game that was tested in the BE . He has many skills that any Program including ours would want .  I do think playing Wusu in critical games at crunch time miffed a lot of the guys . And , Wusu did fumble away a game or 2 in the last seconds .  But , as they say , “ Coaches Decision .” 

You do realize just because a school contacts a kid doesn't mean they have an offer right?  I'm in Arkansas fan as well and I can tell you Muss has probably contacted 100+ kids in the portal, he ain't seriously talking to all 100 kids he's contacted.  If a kid is half-way decent and he's completely open and talking with schools it's going to be a ton of schools that contact that kid.

And while I do think Greg is without a doubt a high major player and he can positively effect any team he joins, he's still a role player, if he does end up at any of those bigger name schools on that list it's going to be as a role player, none of those big schools would be bringing him in to be a 1st, 2nd, or even 3rd scoring option, he's mostly likely a guy that they would look to as a spark off the bench or more of a defense/shooting specialist in a starting role, my guess is that's why he's taken so many zoom calls, he hasn't heard what he's wanted to hear yet.

Also as far as Wusu, I really don't get people's narrative that it rubbed people the wrong way that he played in crunch time, like he didn't deserve to play or something.  CMA didn't give Wusu those crunch time minutes he earned them, I lost count of all the big time shots he made going to the rim and hitting baskets within the last few minutes of the game, he was by far the best at getting to the rim in crunch time, it wasn't even close.  If any of the other players were upset and jealous of that, they needed to go because that means they don't want to play for a coach that plays to win, they just want to play for themselves.

I maybe an outlier on this but I think there are some guards out there if SJU could get to replace Greg I would have no problem with if it meant he definitely would leave.  I really don't think the fortunes of SJU next year rise and fall on him returning or not.  I am not against him returning but I don't think he is irreplaceable.

There are some big names after him, but does he get more playing time at those schools than does here? I haven't checked their rosters, but it seems like it would be tougher to crack Houston's starting lineup than it would be to crack ours with a staff that knows him. I doubt he's one of the rumored "jealous" guys, but if he is, he'd be jealous at any Power team because he's not going to be the Man.

He might feel that in his final year, regardless of minutes played, he'd have a better chance to go deep into the Big Dance with the teams he's been talking with rather than with St. John's -- an experience he (like most players) has always dreamed about. That said, I've liked him since Day 1, and am hoping to see him finish his college career with us.
