    Curious as to what makes you think that? He hasn't been linked to any of them that I've seen, and his consensus rank is somewhere between 75-150. His limitations clearly aren't skill-based, and he's probably not gaining 15 pounds of muscle in the next few months.

    I think he can be a great contributor wherever he goes, and I really hope Butler gets him, but I definitely don't see Kansas or Duke swooping in on us on this one.

    Duke was watching at NBA Top 100 apparently and are expected to watch in July. I think he'll pick up a ton of steam in July.

    If not I like where X stands currently.

    Ok....but cmon, watching and actively recruiting/offering are very different things.

    It'll be interesting. I'm afraid of vandy here.

    Yeah...but that's the luxury of being a blue blood. You don't have to be actively recruiting anyone.

    Simply offering often times will put you at the top of a kid's list. So if they're watching there's a chance that can happen at any moment.

    Are we forgetting about the Orange here? I can see Syracuse being a threat as well...

    I'm pretty sure he's also already visited Duke before.

    Exactly what he said after visits to other colleges as well (vandy, syracuse) looks like he is also going to be visiting the school in cincy today

    Sounds like he is less creative than Davison with his use of superlatives or he only knows great.

    Just tweeted the same thing about X. Apparently he didn't spend much time at either BU or X if he visited both today.

    You realize how small that sample size is? Kellen missed like 30 in a row last year. This kid is legit. Best player we have a legitimately shot at landing in my opinion.

    New update

    X and especially Cuse worry me here. The others not so much. Recent offers from Louisville and NC State this week, and I'm sure more to come. Duke sniffing around. Gonna be a tough get.

    I wouldn't worry too much about X - I think he ends up in ACC somewhere- seemed like he had a really good weekend- we've got other guys we're trying to get committed before him- not sure how big of a deal it is to Oconnell to be the #1 guy.

    Schrage just started following Alex's older brother, Shawn, who was a redshirt freshman forward (6-8 200ish) this past season at Georgia Southern and very efficient in his limited role. Shawn follows him now too. Just thought it was interesting.
