As there's roster spots available, we'll use this thread for 2018 recruiting or transfer news.

(For 2019+ recruiting, per usual please use the Recruiting Thread.)

Thanks :thumb:

Is this him? If so his ranking is wrong; He looks awesome.

My first reaction was “jereme Richmond but with a 3 Point stroke”
That's a heck of a stretch IMO. Richmond was a projected NBA lottery pick, up until his immaturity derailed him. In the clip, he's much taller than the folks he's playing against. Being physically advanced in hs does not often translate to the high major college game. Offer list also suggests tempering expectations a bit from Richmond.

TF: Yeah. I think we brought a lot of winning guys in here this year. Last year, I don’t think we had a team that really wanted to win. Guys just wanted to be out there and play. This year, I feel that Coach Underwood brought in a bunch of guys who know how to win and just want to win and be a part of this family.

To me, this explains a lot about last year. And assuming it's a fair assessment, it needed to be fixed.

The main issue with last season's team was a dearth of talent. Grumbling is universal and pretty much inversely proportional to how well the team fared.

While I don’t disagree, we lost a half dozen games in the final moments. I can understand why someone like TF would feel like attitudes kept us from closing those out.

Shot just under 40% from range and averaged 11 rpg. Looks very smooth in highlights. Great dribbler for his size. Lacks high-end athleticism but I’d take him, no doubt.
Looks like MJ to me. Not going to start about athleticism but he looks quick, can get off the ground quickly and move laterally. Close enough for me.
