    How does one become classified as elite or lock down? Is it based on stats or group think?

    Good question. I'd say a bit of both, look at Thybulle from Washington what a man-child on the defensive end, reminds me of the Honey Badger Tyann Mathieu when he was at LSU his anticipation, instincts and athletic ability make so many things happen

    I never said he was elite or a lockdown. I said he was a pretty good defender.

    I don't think they hand out conference awards for defense if you aren't good--even at the MAC level. That seems like it would run counterintuitive.

    And before someone says, "Yeah, that's in the MAC." Ronald Nored was an elite defender in the Horizon, it carried over in any conference and into the NCAA tournament. I also trust Jay Bilas on something like that, he watches a lot of teams and is an intelligent basketball mind.

    I think if LaRavia wants more big time offers, he should do a 5th year at some prep school. Allegedly, he's young for his grade. A prep school would give him a chance to be seen more, develop both on the court, and off the court in the weight room. He could also, theoretically, make more of an impact his freshman in college.

    Any good? St. John's has offered, but rest of schools seem like mid-majors.

    We're in on Williams, Jr from Duquesne. He was mentioned earlier in the day and allegedly we're after him.

    William and Mary transfer Justin Pierce, who would have been a good target, taking an OV to Notre Dame this weekend. Looks like we're not in on that one. Otherwise he'd be seeing us too.

    This looks good! I don't know if we have another wing on the roster who could do that.

    Maybe Hastings?

    So potentially getting this kid would it count as a scholly for this yr? It would be for the yr he would be eligible right?

    He's a sit one, play two, but yeah the schollie would count against us in 2019-2020.

    Henry can get up high, but the slightest breeze or bump would cause him to veer off course...

    I'd prefer to put this in a new, Recruiting Notes 4.0 thread considering this one has over 1300 posts, but whatever... @Jared Grubbs or anyone else planning to attend any of the games at WC for the Adidas Gauntlet event in Indy this weekend?

    Not much recruiting has been going on lately for 2020 class (even though I know it’s a dead period) but regardless who do we think the staff is targeting? Have been pretty quiet on visits all year and making me nervous that we won’t be able to replace KB and MCD with quality guys. Can somebody give me a list 1-5 on who might be our main targets for 2020?
