    A kid named Alex O'Connell from Georgia is visiting in late June. Ranked in the 70s. Super athletic but incredibly skinny.

    Please excuse my laziness, but do you have a link from last season's Gauntlet of Kamar and Alex's stats on the Celtics?

    His change of speed and direction is impressive.

    There is no JP Macura, only Myles Fox Morrissey.

    That video has arguably the worst production value of any highlight video I've seen for a decent recruit. It even has clip art. For that reason alone I don't think I want him.

    i think i want o'connell more than any other recruit in 2017. butler needs a couple guys that will try to embarrass you if you make a mistake. having someone that opponents hate also tends to be the guy who gets home crowds going. hinkle is a crypt most of the time, getting some attitude would do everyone good.

    What about O'Connell makes you think opponents will hate him or that he has an attitude?

    He looks like Macura therefore he acts like him too...? And attitude is what will get BU fans fired up? The fan base that fawns over academic all Americans? Huh?

    Romeo Langford, Zion Williamson and Alex O'Connell. Top three scorers at camp through two games. #NBPATop100

    Alex O'Connell (should he have a thread?) recently started following Holtmann, Butler Basketball, and Gordon Hayward on twitter. Also just received a xavier offer.

    Gordon will be back in Indy this summer working out and awaiting the birth of his second daughter. Would make for a nice surprise visit when Alex is here.

    Holy crap. Kid has some skill, but he needs to EAT. He could use a good 20 lbs before he's ready...

    I agree that he could use some weight, but his skill level is high enough that I'd be willing to take that risk on him.

    Where is the risk? Kid is a baller.

    I don't see it here, but I haven't watched anything other than 2 or 3 highlight videos, so maybe I'm not as informed as many of you. I'm not sure he's tall or athletic enough to make up for his weight issue as of right now. Are his shooting percentages excellent?
