Yep, it'll be interesting to see if it's a true offer or if it's to add to the hype and try to get other teams interested.

If you had seen me between my sophomore year and my senior year, you would think you were looking at two different people. It amazes me how coaches can be evaluating players on their high school sophomore performance and what they'll be by the end of their senior year. Kids don't blow up. They grow up.

And many aren't through growing until they're in college, and not just in size but in musculature as their hormones catch up with their age.

Young's Javon Freeman picks up Akron offer. Underrated 2018 player, could be the city's breakout star next season. Crazy high ceiling.

Ayo penetrates the zone & finds Kahlil Whitney for a baseline jam. And then Tamell Pearson throws one down right before half.

I just want a guy on the team called T-Melly. That nickname is legit.

If we have to take this kid in order to get Ayo, I am in. He is not a bad player, and could easily develop. Plus the Irvins would be feeling the love, and hopefully send some more guys our way.

I agree- but either way an Illinois offer helps legitimize him so there is a benefit regardless

Not too late at all, at this point it is just a matter of priority. There are plenty of others we would take ahead of him. Players such as DJS, Finke, Ayo, THT, Ignas, just too name a few.

I had heard Martin and SC were showing interest and that he wanted to get a visit there soon.

Hellems in foul trouble, Shareef O'Neal raining 3's in front of his pop, Shaq, but BBE still leads Cal Supreme by 1 with 6 minutes to go in the first half.
Been checking in on Meanstreets - Team CP3 -- Finke didn't start. Did see him get a finger roll layup. Tied 28 all just before the half.

Good game although hard to root for one side or the other. Not area teams and I highly doubt we're seriously in the running for either of these guys, but back and forth and a bit of bad feeling the last few minutes.

Jeebus, Hellems and Liddell were sitting so I turned it to watch MS and miss this. Did see Finke get another layup in the lane.
Derek Piper‏ @DPiperScout 17s18 seconds ago
Hellems closed the half strong. Hit a three, put down some more FTs & finished in the paint. Good at finding space to work in the mid-post.

Finke drives the baseline for a layup. Maybe he's waking from his funk.

and a minute later splashes a 3 from the corner.
