    Just an opinion, but I think Stanford is going to be hard to beat. He's stated he didn't really grow up an AZ fan. He may end up going there, but there apparently is no long lingering love of the home state school to overcome. And if he wants to play ball in Indiana, why not pick the school that has been the most relevant in the past 20 or 25 years. And that sure ain't the Hoosiers. He may be redundant at VA. Think they are sticking to their plan for due diligence on all of his final five before making a pick. Like I said, just an opinion, I'd put my money on Stanford at this point. (The Stanford and VA campuses are soooo beautiful. Got to give them that.)

    Good luck to Alex, at least we got him here to visit.

    Go Dawgs!

    It was a foregone conclusion. Nice to have been in the mix. Here's to Bede and Young...

    It's gonna really suck (for him...and us, if we don't get Bede) when he's playing 14 minutes per game as a junior and senior behind Dylan Smith and whatever 5 star they get between now and then.

    Bede obviously just became a must get for us.

    AB may never play meaningful minutes with Ayton. High likelihood he's one and done, and solid chance AB doesn't see the floor much for a few years.

    So Alex just got recruited over so as a sophomore his minutes will be limited. I'm sure even if he had committed to Butler he would've decommitted when Holtmann and Schragge left.

    Ugh. I feel bad for the kid. I get committing to your home school but the dude is too good to just ride the pine and that's what he's going to do.

    I don't understand this sentiment. I'm sure Alex knew when he committed to Arizona that there's a chance he will get recruited over. That's how these behemoth state schools work.

    Also, there's nothing wrong with riding the pine when you are 18 and 19. This kid wasn't going to the NBA early anyways. Be patient and if you're good your time will come.

    I mean, sure, riding the bench isn't the end of the world. But when you're a top 100 player I think playing before you're a junior is better than not playing. And as foolish as it may have been, I'm fairly sure he didn't commit with the idea that that may be the case. Heck, he was probably told they needed him.

    Arizona now has TWO top 10 PGs committed in the 2018 class. And they aren't showing any signs of slowing down on the recruiting trail. Somebody (not saying it will be Alex) is going to be unhappy about their minutes down the road.

    They also have Dylan Smith, the transfer from UNC Asheville, who has 3 years of eligibility left. Brandon Williams seems like more than a one year kid and I'm sure they'll target an elite PG in the 19 class if they think Quinerly will be one and done. Tough break for the kid.

    Again I just don't understand why people feel sorry for this kid as if he was blind sided by something. If you chose to go to a blue blood, there's no guarantee that you will get playing time or that they won't jump at the first chance to recruit over you.

    If he didn't know that he would be treated as a commodity going to a school like Arizona, then this will be a rude awakening.

    You don't understand how anyone can feel sympathy for a supremely talented 17 year old who got sold on a relatively unfavorable situation by a 40 year old salesman who doesn't give a sh*t about what's best for him?
