Some of Groce's pursuit of Pickett was due to his relationship with Tilmon, so that's not a good example.Has Groce offered Pickett yet ? If not then that's about all that needs said about Groce and knowing talent on here any longer. And NO that is not meant to be a knock on Pickett at all I would of loved to had him on the team
Brazdeikis, not Stewart. (I don't think you followed the links.)Yeah, he's either playing above the rim on his dunks or throwing in NBA 3 pointers. I don't know anyone who likes that type of game.
Butz. From Indiana. As in Earl and Dave. Wonder if Purdue was on him.
See I was not really a fan of Butz, pretty soft for a big guy but he was skilled just not really an above the rim type of guy.Butz is a good player, but wasn't highly ranked. I think DePaul was his only big offer. I watched him play against Malik Williams (Louisville commit and top 30) and Butz outplayed him. Part of that may have been the fact that Butz was on a much better team .
From what I've watched of him, I think he reminds me of Doug Altenberger, with a little more size. I think if you look at the historical years of us winning, there was someone like him coming off the bench and being a steady player, putting up points and giving his all, yet always not the gifted athlete. The word that best reflects him is consistent, unlike our play over the last 6 years.[FONT="]I know Playaz already posted this but it's worth watching again. He scored 50 points against Prolific Prep, a team that went 29-2 and included Gary Trent Jr, Paul Scruggs and Abu Kagib. As a commentor said below this video on YouTube he's currently 4th in EYBL scoring behind Bagley, Bol Bol, and RJ Barrett. And he's just a Junior. Tough crowd today.[/FONT]
Or Florida, Michigan, UConn or Oklahoma, all of whom offered him this week.Brazdeikis has a very strong, tight dribble. Guys that big at that age usually don't. He doesn't have Zion's explosiveness, but he's a good athlete. He's a kid I'm really high on. He'd be an All-American at Wisconsin.
