    I actually saw him at Run N Slam. He runs with King James. He clearly isn't a primary option with Simpson, Cumberland, and Funderburk on the team, but he was solid. I'm pretty sure I've got highlights saved of him, so I will get those up real quick. Here is a highlight video from his junior year. Reminds me a little bit of VJ Beachum in high school.

    Irish remain perfect with rout of Vikings

    "And that sense exists because of Henry Baddley. The most explosive player on the Irish roster, he’s a threat to take over a game at any moment by simply being on the court.

    That became as evident as ever when Baddley threw down a one-handed dunk right over his defender on the baseline in the third quarter, a la Blake Griffin.

    “Henry’s had a couple of those this year,” Irish coach Dru Joyce said. “When a guy tries to wall up and he’s too far underneath, shame on him. Because Henry’s going over him. Those are exciting plays, they give us some energy. At that point, we’re rolling, and there’s not too much that’s going to keep us from getting the victory.”

    Baddley finished with a game-high 21 points and four blocks, three rebounds, two assists and two steals."

    In addition to his new offer from Buffalo it seems like he has an offer from Toledo and had previous interest from West Virginia. Watching those highlights it definitely seems like there's something worth looking into here.

    Baddley looks like a stud. Same high school as LeBron, right?

    If we lock down Washington today, players like Baddley become more palatable knowing the class doesn't hinge on their success.

    Brunk and Washington create a foundation to build on, at the 2 most difficult to fill positions.

    I agree with all of this, especially given the position that Baddley plays; I think the swing position is a position with which you can gamble on upside. Like you said, this is even more true if you've got your center and pg of the future.

    Baddley deserves his own thread, I think.

    The staff has done a fantastic job in getting Brunk and Washington, our two biggest positional needs. Holt has been phenomenal in the little time he's had here.

    I'd like the last one or two schollies to be used on a pure shooter and the best talent available. Baddley would be a nice idea from what I've seen. Like someone else here said before, I'd really like the staff to follow Brachen Hazen real closely. He's a solid player.

    Interesting news. I always figured we'd be looking for one more guard (Baldwin) and a slasher type, which Baddley fits nicely.

    Wonder how quickly this could move, we're by far his best offer at this point.
