    I'm pretty sure this guy is the same type of player as Neese, though Platek has a lot more beef (30 pounds) than what Cooper has. I would probably say right now that Neese is better talent wise, but Platek could certainly have a huge senior year. I understand the interest from CH.

    Andrew Platek - 2017 Shooting Guard (Offered)

    I don't. If we didn't have Neese, it'd be whatever. But the fact were willing to take Neese and Platek sort of screams desperate to me. I just don't get this one. We just offered a 6 4 guard who does not appear to be much of an athlete and who's supposed strength is shooting. Shooting 37% from 3 in high school does not make you a shooter. Puzzled.

    You guys kill me... 2 years ago we are all whining about not offering enough kids. "why are we doing a sniper approach?!?" Fast forward to today and we're getting picky about a kid ranked 162 (247 ranking) in the nation getting an offer because of a PERCEIVED overlap with other recruits.

    Huh? Is there really a contradiction in wanting more offers to players we think are good enough and not wanting to offer redundant talent with questionable athleticism? There's not. Do you really think everyone was pining for offers to players we think may not be good enough when they complained of the sniper approach? No. There are some nuances you're ignoring here.

    I think a lot of folks questioned Alec Peters when he was coming out of high school. Same for Chrabascz for that matter. Graves was not overly athletic and look how he turned out. Trust the staff.

    I don't have an issue with offering, but go for kids who will truly change the program. Neither of the guys in question are the level of Dunham coming out of high school. Aim higher.

    I think we'll learn a lot from how they play in AAU, both guys are on high level teams.

    The more I watched Platek play this weekend the more I liked and appreciated his game. This kid is a VERY good basketball player who has been coached extremely well. He won't wow you with athleticism or speed or strength, but he is a fearless competitor, a dead eye long ball specialist and one of the more savvy players you will ever see. I really like this Butler offer. I think he would be a fantastic player in the Butler system.

    Platek has a great temperment for the game. He's the kind of guy who is going to wear you down thru the long haul of a game. He doesn't give up on plays. Energy/stamina wise he is very good. He played alot of minutes at guard for Albany City Rocks, but his play doesn't really fall off alot even after long stretches of minutes. Very well conditioned athlete IMO. Both physically and mentally. He knows how to play team basketball on both ends. He has a very quick release on his outside J. He doesn't mess around if he has an opening. Its gone and most likely that thing is finding the bucket. He knows what a good shot is. For his own personal game. Alot of players at this age don't know that yet. I think Platek knows his own game inside and out. He doesn't try to do things he is not capable of. To me that is a sign of a very smart player and someone that is going to be very coachable in college and probably be very efficient.

    Really like to see this guy play for Butler.

    Offer from Princeton. Kid is a student, that's for sure.

    Just noticed he is 20-37 from long range through 7 games of AAU. Leads all of EYBL in 3P%.

    He's going on an unofficial visit to IU May 6th. Also plans to visit Stanford this summer, per Evan Daniels.
