Doesn't look like Camelback to me. Looks like that hill in Tempe next to campus.
Could very well be, but Camelback Mtn is technically listed in those 3 areas...Echo Canyon more specifically.
 
Interesting that he averaged 6.6 assists. Sure sounds ideal for the pinch post and the perfect fit to beat a zone defense. Not sure it is next year but with guys like him and Curbelo, we are going to see a much improved passing team.

It's definitely not next season*, but that's no reason to be discouraged. Initially, I was underwhelmed, but there have been plenty of indications since, that the kid has a pretty rare skill set. Can see why the staff pursued him and there was no evident fence sitting on our end. Give him a year in the program and good things await.

* I've been wrong before, lol

I'd be all for another recruitment of Landers Nolley. He completely ran out of gas after their Boston College game, which makes sense why his shooting percentage cratered. Was shooting 35% from 3 before the Boston College game. That said, I think he's a solid shooter and would be a much-needed playmakers for 2020-21 or 2021-22 depending on if he would have to sit out.

He's talented, no doubt. I do doubt that we'll get involved this go round.

So everyone suspected Tev was struggling, and in that context, his post looks like he's got a foot already out the door. Is there a reason he wouldn't have already put his name in the transfer portal?

Not sure, but don’t players have to be officially released to enter the portal? Could just be the timing, could be he knows where he wants to go. I don’t believe entering the portal is required to transfer. Someone will correct me if that’s wrong.

I agree would take him in a heart beat

I think that was my ultimate guess. Sorry I didn't make that clear in my initial post.
He went to school in the PHX area, so I wouldn't assume anything other than just going back for spring break.

I’m not sure which thread this is most appropriate for, but we know what the B10 and Illinois is doing specifically on recruiting, training, access to facilities etc. It is all shut down except phone calls. Has the NCAA set the same standards universally? My cynical mind assumes the Alabama’s (football) and Kentucky’s of the world are using a different set of rules.
