    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.

    @Jared Grubbs Just cause you've seen him play or anyone else who has seen Nijel Pack in person play this year, what's your take on him. I personally love everything he does, can he run a Big East team though in your opinion? And is he someone who can step into a role as a freshman? I've gone back and forth on him, I really want him to he can't be the only PG we get if we take him.

    I haven’t seen him since last AAU season. He’s absolutely worth monitoring. I kind of pegged him as a multi year mid major starter. He’s very crafty, but lacks the speed I’d like to see from a PG of his size. I wouldn’t be surprised if he makes the jump to being a solid HM recruit, but expecting him to have a significant role as a freshman in the Big East seems aggressive at this point.

    Gotcha, yea, Iowa has been all over him from the start. He seems highly intelligent, a winner, a leader with a chip on his shoulder, just don't know how he'd do with a 6'5 athletic guard on him, like a Symir Torrence

    Thanks!

    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.

    He's a 6'3 combo guard. Imagine a taller version of Baldwin who only has to wait a year to compete for the opportunity to start. Sounds like he can play both the 1 & 2.

    Is anyone else peeved by all these departure/commitment notices that ALL include the phrasing “with that being said....”

    Am I wrong to think it not only sounds awkward, but is also used awkwardly, and for some reason every kid says that?

    This is probably one of my “things” but I think it’s bizarre.

    Kyle corrected himself...Bryce Moore (grad transfer) has the OVs.

    Really is hilarious that they won't even give the kid a sniff. In their own backyard.

    Let's pray this means they have a bigger fish already on the hook. This kid can get it. Got turned on to him a few months ago, steadily watched from far...man he's got something. I just hope we have something better in mind, otherwise, unacceptable.
