    FWIW we are supposed to visit him today and Purdue is visiting him tomorrow. As previously noted, Xavier visited him earlier... at this point, I cannot figure out how the visit went bc i’m too busy watching highlight tapes trying to find one filled w a prospect shooting bricks

    FWIW, Brian Snow just posted the first crystal ball prediction for Gillis. He's predicting Purdue.

    He's not exactly a BU promoter, so I would have anticipated anybody but us.

    Come on, that’s a lame take.

    I had a subscription to Scout's paid site for BU for two years before I cancelled it. It was completely worthless. The publisher doesn't have any real scoop at all and the message board was dead. The only time Snow covered Butler kids was when they were being recruited by Ohio schools and the only time he posted on the Butler board was when one of those recruits signed somewhere else.

    I second this. I subscribed the first year they covered Butler. Coverage was embarrassing and Snow comes across as a huge Ohio/Cincinnati homer. His Butler takes always seemed critical and pessimistic. I dont recall much positive from him towards Butler and I've long stopped paying attention to his twitter takes.

    The only issue is that Gillis is out for a few weeks. Shouldn’t affect him too much but he’ll most likely miss this period altogether. Might help keep blue bloods at bay.

    Hemenway defensive footwork was pretty damn impressive, as was his offense.

    Want. This. Player. From his quotes sounds like his attitude and thought process is first rate. Also find it interesting that the Lafayette paper includes “Butler” in the headline.

    What about Butler recruiting wouldn’t have been pessimistic the past couple years? Not like we reeled many guys in with heavy competition. Also, Snow is a national analyst. He covers big fan bases because they make 247 more money. Why would he waste time on the Butler board when he has OSU, IU, Cinci and X to cover?

    This goes back more than a couple of years.

    (It’s nice to reread this page and see how much everyone dislikes Brian Snow
    )

    I like Gillis a lot, but he is a luxury at this point.

    Mason Gillis would be a fantastic addition to Butler Basketball. He is smart, athletic, versatile, and a bulldog on defense. That's exactly what Butler needs going forward. If he commits to Butler, he could be a Big East star. If he commits elsewhere, he'll be star there, too. I think this young man has Pro potential. I think going to Butler will help him get there.
