    No. It’s way too early for that. He either got some inside info that Butler is a significant favorite or just has a feel that it’s a good fit and thinks it will happen. I don’t know about Snow specifically, but a lot of guys flip their picks around eventually, but it’s still a very good sign that he thinks we are in the lead enough to actually make us his current pick.

    He is a multiple sport freak athlete. Most people have him as a high major type player if/when he fully dedicates to basketball. If he were to come here he would instantly become the best athlete to ever come to Butler. If you've never seen him play you need to go watch. This reminds me of like a Jaxson Hayes who was also a multiple sport athlete unranked to exploding to a first round NBA pick. We all complain we need to get more athletic having him and Hastings in the same court with a Battle and a Brown we won't recognize this Butler team

    I have never seen this kid play... but a better athlete that Kamar seems almost impossible. He’s one of the most athletic kids I have ever seen, and I played with and against some amazing players who are NFL superstars.

    No one will ever top Saquon Barkley in my eyes, but Kamar is absolutely Elite.

    Can this kid really be on that level?

    Yes. The only comp I can come up with is Giannis like athleticism. I'll post some vids tomorrow. He broke his own record in the long jump this year over 23 feet.

    And yes I agree Kamar is an elite athlete.

    In the eighth grade, he went undefeated in the long jump, 200, 400, and 1600 relay.

    Giannis with a pull-up three...obviously not the size and wingspan, but this kid is a first round NBA player.

    I doubt that he plays spring AAU because of track. Probably why he doesn’t have any other offers.

    Didn't Hayward skipping a year of AAU because of tennis help him fly under the radar too?

    Yeah, I’d have no hesitation offering on the 3 videos you posted alone. I haven’t even checked to see how tall he is, what position he plays etc. All I’ve seen are those videos and I have all I need to know if he’s worthy of an offer.

    To put in context:
    American Jeff Henderson won gold in Rio in the long jump. He won his high school state championship with a jump of 23 feet 11 inches.

    Pierce Thomas is nearly hitting that...as a sophomore..

    It really is world class.

    That being said...is there a chance we lose him to an Olympic sport? Serious question, as you all know, a gold medal opportunity is special.

    It would be tough because the indoor track season runs during basketball season, but I don't know for sure.
