    Same school as AT PaulVI Catholic in Fairfax VA. Believe that is where Thompson played at

    They are working on getting Joey Hart to campus for an unofficial visit. Fits the same mold.

    I live close to Linton and have seen a few games. I think Joey Hart is a good player but I am not sure he is Big East. I think he would be a good fit for ISU or UE. Again I don’t want to sound like I am downgrading the young man. He is a solid ball player

    I am on board based on his size alone. More of the size of guards and wings I want to see at butler

    That may be true but he was the leading scorer in the Under Armour circuit during the first live evaluation period. If he does that again in July it could cause more teams to take notice as a 6’4-6’5 shooter. Teams will take that to fill a role.

    No going to lie, I had to do a double take when I read "one-legged leaper" in the evaluation report before I realized what they were referring to.

    I don’t know if I’ve ever read a scouting report that thorough on a recruit before. Wow

    No kidding!

    Reading through that makes me think of a Rose Jones/Khyle Marshall mashup who has a chance of also developing a jump shot

    That's definitely a thing of beauty, but all of the offers are taller combo guards. I think it's interesting they have prioritized this position as heavily as they have.

    As of now the only player we know that’s leaving next year is Eric Hunter.

    What worries me is his shooting. Not to make comparisons to AT, but other than the fact he is bigger, and stronger than AT was, DeShawn primarily scores by driving and using strength around the rim to fill the stat sheet. My fear is we lose a 40% 3P shooter in Hunter and get a 25% 3P% defender/driver who opponents will sag off of. I’m sure he will be great on teams with adequate 3P threats but we haven’t demonstrated we have that yet.
