    There doesn't seem to be much of a consensus on his height. Seeing everything from 5'6" to 6'1". I wonder if he went through a growth spurt recently or something.

    Yes. He had a growth spurt. Someone from PrepHoops said they measured him at 5’11” last winter. He’s not a big PG or anything, but size isn’t going to hold him back.

    Is that 5’11 with or without the hair? Lol

    Transferring to a school in Utah. I hate seeing D1 talent leave the state.

    To a prep school, I presume? Interesting place to build a prep school basketball powerhouse.

    Apropos of nothing, I sat across the aisle from Saunders and his family while flying out west over Labor Day weekend to drop my kid off at college.

    I went back and watched that game because I haven’t seen Saunders play since he transferred out west and I wanted to see him go up against the #1 guard in the class in front of him. Cole Anthony did get hot and hit a bunch of 3s over the top of Saunders, but overall Saunders looked extremely good. He has some of the best lateral quickness I’ve ever seen, and Anthony couldn’t shake him at all without the help of a ball screen.

    I really wish Butler would get aggressive here. I was already higher on Saunders than most, but watching this game made me really want him. The PG slot for the 2020 class is going to be crucial, as they are probably going to be getting backup minutes right away and then will start as a sophomore after Thompson graduates. LaVall has to find a good one.

    A point guard is the quarterback on the floor and difficult to go far without a quality one.
