I agree with this statement. When I was watching his highlight video I was thinking to myself "Who was the last player we had that could grab a rebound, go straight up and dunk it or take a power dribble and throw down the hammer.
Not at all, but kids are finicky, if he sees himself "aligned" with one person, the same one that hosted him and told him his "secret" of returning...then he may look at that as a valid reason to go...just saying if all that is accurate, what does he feel if Bridges specifically leaves after next year, which he will.
No joke, Loyola is going to be tough. They've got Chastain back from the knee injury, Donte Ingram who started at Simeon during DJ and Murrow's junior year will be back, Henricksen picked Krutwig over Tilmon on his All-State team and says Krutwig is the best passing big man he's seen since he started scouting (plus the kid is a monster, looks like a pro wrestler), Negron had legit high d1 interest and Lucas Williamson just led Young to a state championship and might have had the best state finals weekend along with Horton-Tucker of anybody down there. With Wichita State gone, Loyola might be in the Dance next year, two years at the most if the class stays together.
What must it be like for this kid for Everyone Who Matters and a lot who don't reading everything but his toilet habits (and who knows, maybe even that) to determine where he's going to go to school. Really, it's like Kremlinology, where they studied who had been airbrushed out of the latest photographs. Here we're discussing who Mark has talked to, when and what about, based on what this guy or another said, and where he went when. Sheesh. I'm sure there are some who are more concerned about him than their own kid.
No kidding. That's why I honestly don't think Smith knows where he wants to go. Someone on twitter mentioned that Smith was getting sick of the process, but when blue bloods are reaching out, you certainly have to hear what they have to say. I know I'm sick of this saga, and I'm just a biased observer. Regardless, it seems like this thing is going to go into late April at least.
