See super recruiter Crudzo has a 2 star and a 3 star signed next year. Would have loved to had Tilmon but wouldn't trade Giorgi for him.

Giorgi actually wound up averaging more ppg than Tilmon, and only about 1 less rebound per game. As a sub 300 no name frosh vs. a 4/5 start Soph. We lucked out!

This makes me inordinately happy.
Watch out, we don't know whether his sister (see Tilmon recruiting) has now gone to work either at Oak Hill (Kofi) or Hillcrest Academy (January),or both., as needed. Missery may not been done recruiting our Commits.

Maybe... Just maybe the HC at Mizzou is a recruiter who cannot coach? Maybe Tilmon would have thrived here...

Where are you seeing this ranking? on Rivals and 247, Mizzou's commitments are a 4-star (Trey Jackson) and a 3-star (Mario McKinney).
 
       
Drew was fired from Vandy. Dylan Disu had an offer from ILL. Cb was 80% SMU before commitment though. From tx, PF. Saw a note somewhere that Illini we’re looking at recruits that could be let out if NLI. No idea if it is this guy. Also, Scotty Pippen was a Vandy verbal.

Just watched his film on 247. His game reminds me of Tevian. Long and lean, good in transition, shoots it from deep, not a guy built for the post. Wouldn't consider him as good as Tevian.

Verbal Commits has McKinney as 3-star and 2-star Jackson.
 
       
VC is wrong on that one, Jackson is a pretty solid 4*. They flipped him from Minnesota.
Com'on Crudzo would never do that.

We already have a great shooter in AG... and for some reason, we never drew anything up for him.
We drew up a good amount of plays for him but we never did so in critical moments which I think is completely fair for an adapting freshman

We also had AJ playing in front of him in the critical moments...
 
       
There will be transcript issues for any recruit that will slow down the process but this will be a big hit if we can't put this together

If he is a non graduate doesn't he fall under transfer rules and would have to sit out a year rather be eligible immediately as a 5th year??

Not sure why it has to be an either or. With both this season may have been strikingly different.

We won't pass and there is a very good chance he will be an Illini.

If he has a hard pass that bodes well for ball movement. Amirite?

We had about 15 hard passes in that one possession against NW in 2005. I know someone has the YouTube clip saved
