    I like Jalen Windham, but I question whether he and Battle would be competing for the same minutes.

    Yeah from what I've seen he can knock down that shot pretty well. Fans I know at the state final were impressed by him against Carmel. I'd be on the phone...give me all the shooters I can get.

    And Tiles...I think Battle and he could form quite the flanking duo in the coming years. I don't think they'd get into each other's way. I don't know if we'd shake the trees but I'd be down with an offer.

    Bolt recruited both Tremont Waters & Wabissa Bede, who played in the Sweet 16 last night. I think they were 6 foot or right around there (Waters was smaller). Bede looks like a chiseled rock who's spends lots of time in the weight room.

    Purdue and Missouri with interest in LaVaria, IU in Windham, not a peep from us...if he's good enough for them we should be sniffing too. Unless LaVall knows exactly who he is going after and has a warm temp feel for those players.

    It would be great to raise some money for the board again this offseason. Plus, I would love to send Jared out to Peach Jam for another year. I feel like he was able to get some good videos, evaluations, etc. for us.

    Side note: Man, do I miss Tyler Hicks. 75% of Butler recruiting info goes unreported now. It’s hard to get a feel on if a recruit is liking what the staff is selling, and maybe that’s contributing to the overall disappointment around the program. He was great at staying on top of visits, who the coaches went to see, and would regularly get updates from recruits or family members. It’d be great if the 247 “In The Dawg Pound” reporter was worth a damn.

    Did Tyler have some affiliation with Holt's staff? He seemed to eat sleep and breathe Butler but then ended up following that dude to OSU

    I don’t miss him because he’s a snake for going to OSU.

    Given he’s an elite recruiter, according to this board, surely he leads for four or five Top 100 players in the 2020 class given he’s had pretty much two whole years to exclusively recruit it.

    He built a relationship with the old staff as a HS student and ended up getting a scholarship offer to go be a manager there. That was an awesome personal opportunity for him. It was a no brainer.

    Decommit from Va Tech.

    I believe that is the same school Aaron Thompson went to.

    I mean, I agree you have to make the call, but he was a teammate of Aaron Thompson in high school and would he be OK coming off the bench behind AT as a freshman and/or would he expect starter's minutes?

    I can't exactly explain why, but I feel like that calculus is a lot harder when the guy you're trying to push out is someone you've known for a while.
