Perhaps I'm misremembering the recruitment. Didn't they spot him while recruiting Naz Reid and offer shortly thereafter? I'm pretty sure the Tribune article about him said that BU didn't know who he was when he saw him play and that was in late January of last year.I di
I disagree. OA had seen GB for some time. This wasn't a desperation move. This was a move we see teams like WI and others make, where we sit back and think, we have to face this guy for 3 more years?......why can't we recruit players like that.............under the radar, high IQ ballplayers.
Wasn't the staff after Valdir Manuel, Giorgi's teammate, first?Perhaps I'm misremembering the recruitment. Didn't they spot him while recruiting Naz Reid and offer shortly thereafter? I'm pretty sure the Tribune article about him said that BU didn't know who he was when he saw him play and that was in late January of last year.
Could well be, most of my info was just coming from the Tribune article that Shannon Ryan wrote about Giorgi. That article says BU and OA were there to watch one of Giorgi's opponents. Maybe Manuel had committed somewhere by then or otherwise fallen off the radar.
I will guess about 20 minutes. Both centers listed played last year, 7 and 8 minutes. Five forwards and five guards, for the world team.Just realized that the Nike Hoops summit is here in Portland (local for me). Would you all expect Kofi to get decent tick in that? Debating whether to go...
Cronin to UCLA will greatly improve their situation in Miller’s recruitment. Cronin is in there pretty good with some of Miller’s people.Even more curious is that UCLA job has been open for several weeks and they finally settled on Cronin from Cincy yesterday. It would be interesting to know who has been leading that recruitment, UCLA or Addidas.
I kinda thought he got worked to be honest. He's a man-child physically but still needs to learn how to harness his size and add some agility. Mostly was bummed that he didn't have the fire to dominate whenever he was in, which was a clear contrast to Stewart. Hopefully Underwood can help with all three -- no doubt he'll be a huge contributor at some point, but this game is making me temper expectations for Year 1. If you don't get it up for a nationally televised semifinal game, I'm not convinced a Big Ten arena will suddenly change things. Hopefully I'm wrong.Kofi is up against the #4 player in the class and he is neutralizing Isaiah Stewart!
Tractor Traylor, RIPWho does Kofi compare to in the current NBA. I haven't watched a ton of his game tape, but just strictly based on build he kind of reminds me of Boogie Cousins. I have a feeling he will play more like Steven Adams. He seems like a bully on the court (which I love). Anyone seen him play more than just on highlights?
