Hearing that AJ's transcripts are looking better than initially expected and an excellerated course path is being advised and set in place to ensure that we get our California big man on campus! next fall!

Very, very positve feedback about the visit so far!! Let's hope it all works out in the long-run!! πŸ™πŸ†
Thanks for the information. I suppose the bad news here is he is likely to miss summer workouts and we all know how important they are in getting ready for the season.

Three-Point Play: Is Villanova college basketball's Clemson?

Christian Brown has been heavily discussed throughout the years and while he has been hampered by injuries and struggled in the efficiency column because of it, things look to be headed back in the right direction. Brown is having a basketball renaissance of sorts this winter with the famed Oak Hill Academy program as his recruitment has welcomed a few newer programs to it.

Most of the talk this summer was that Brown would end up at Clemson, the program that had recruited him the longest and sits as the in-state program. This still could be the case as assistant coach Steve Smith has done a phenomenal job in recruiting him. But the field vying for his services has become more crowded.

Brown has taken an official visit to Georgia in addition to Clemson. Each remain in the picture, but Illinois and Pitt are two others that have picked things
up. NC State coach Kevin Keatts has made it apparent that he would love to throw Brown into his versatile lineup.

A commitment does not seem near but Illinois, NC State and Pitt are in the best spot to receive one of his final official visits. Georgetown and South Carolina are in the picture, too, but the Illini, Wolfpack and Panthers have the greatest traction of late with the four-star.

With a potential logjam of wings (already have Tevian, Alan, Kipper) to play the 3 and 4 spots next year, and if the staff wants to add two more wings like some have said here, that would make 5 players fighting for playing time at two spots. I don't know why two more players, Archie and someone else similar, would join. I don't know how the staff will sell playing time.
If someone like Patterson or K. Walker joined who might be considered a one and done, that could further deter Archie. Unless he is fine with a "sit-out" type of year.
On the other hand, if Archie jumps to take a spot, might that discourage others such as Patterson, Walker, or even Brown?

I dont think Walker, patterson, or whitney are to worried about trying to get playing time here.

Considering that Archie will probably have to sit a year, I don't think it will any negative effect at all! The staff definitely is looking at mid year transfee with him tho

And thank you to whoever caught my grammatical error! I literally woke up in the middle of the night like oh *#\t that was suppose to be accelerated not excellerated!! Lol I spend too much in Quickbooks and on an excel spread sheet!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

How is Joe's not getting any love here? Or that hole in the wall across from the wing shop on 2nd and green i believe that is... Those are the 2 hottest spots next to canopy of the last decade plus on campus!!
