Need big this year and enough scholarships for Dosunmu, THT and DeSousa next year. Agau seems to be only big discussed and if he doesn't get 2 yrs needs to be used on a big next year. Have mixed feelings about transfer wings as like to see the ones committed getting playing time. Trust BU to know best way to develop. Competition in practice may be more valuable than playing time? Still believe next year's success will be determined by the defense as we still have strong offensive weapons.

Agreed, would love to have him reclassify. De Sousa would be a huge get as well.

Mentions us with Kofi Cockburn and DJ Stewart. Always a surprise when Bossi mentions us with anybody.

On the linked article...not sure on reference to "not immediately eligible"; more to the story obviously. I think we would meet his needs on his fan base desires.

5-star PG Trevon Duval commits to Duke
Evan Daniels‏Verified account @EvanDaniels 2h2 hours ago
Duke now has the No. 2 recruiting class in 2017 with the addition of Trevon Duval. They have two of the top 7 players & 3 of the top 19.

This makes the fourth straight year that Duke & Kentucky have been No. 1 & No. 2 in some order in Scout's recruiting class rankings.

At least the saga is over now. Now if only Iggy would reclassify to '17.

Wow, Mizzou with a pretty blatant shot at us in their Tilmon commitment graphic. State of Illinois and Missouri with a tiger image overlayed. Game on Miznoz.

Jeremiah Tilmon is in good hands. There can't be a better role model than Cuonzo Martin. @KSDKSports @MizzouHoops

I think this is as good a year as any to finally make it to my first Braggin Rights game.

Just spoke to 2019 Mizzou target @EasyE2432 while waiting to get seated for my grad dinner. He said he plans to visit Mizzou next weekend.


EJ Liddell visiting Miznoz next weekend.

He definitely needs a role model, but is Cuonzo really the best possible role model? We'll see.

Good luck to Tilmon.

Hopefully, our coaches land someone that makes us forget all about Tilmon. You can role model all you want; we'll see how things pan out down there.

Not that Underwood needs a little extra fire in his belly, but the way this went down sets-up for maximum belly fire in the bragging rights game. Looking so forward to it!
