    Going to be a tough one. UK, KU, UNC all involved. LaVall and Co. shooting for the stars. I’m on the train.

    He can call us IU for all I care. A Top 30 player? Yes, please. LaVall wouldn’t throw him an offer unless he thinks they have a shot.

    Exactly what I've been thinking. I know there has been some interest for awhile from our end but I don't think you make this offer just for grins. Has to be a decent feeling that we can compete for him. The whole damn sec has offered it seems plus KU and UNC. He's visiting Bama next week according to his 247 page.

    Definitely worth a shot. There has been some interest here for a bit and this is the right summer to take a shot at a five-star. Smith is awesome and would be a game-changing scorer in LaVall's system. I think you have seen and will continue to see Butler prioritize highly-regarded players in this class. There is limited evaluation time and perhaps issuing offers to guys you have confidence in will pay off. I'll try to connect with Smith this week and get an interview up; hopefully that would tell us more about where the Dawgs stand in what is obviously a loaded recruitment. Smith has stated in the past that he is prioritizing culture and family vibe for his future school.

    Want.

    Something tells me LaVall is going to pull in a monster 2022 class. Just a gut feeling. Say what you want about his coaching ability but the man can recruit.

    Perhaps LJ's greatest resource is his ability to develop personal relationships with recruits.

    Come on @willisbrown, it's time to drop a bag here. Man, there's just so much to like with this kid. I'm a bit concerned about no recruits yet in 2022, but I get it...COVID...still with all the guys we are losing after this year, there will be a bunch of minutes up for competition in 2022-23.

    I mean we might as well get on board. Will Wade still has a job.

    Is Nick Rivers still available? I hear it’s a Top Secret recruitment.

    Disagree, LJ is at a crossroads with BU this year in my opinion. This is year 5 for him and his resume on paper doesn't look very good. He has to aim high or we're going to settle into the basement of the BE.

    Just watched his highlights and I’d say with his quickness and nba foot work he could skip the college thing all together and just go g-league for a year and then straight to the pros

    But if he wants to play college basketball I would have to say yes he can play at butler

    Scratch that. Kentucky was just Crystal Balls on 247, not an actual commitment. So, I don't know what he's announced, if anything. Sorry!

    So since it may be kentucky it’s basically g-league

    Makes sense, his one highlight tape blew my mind.
