Yeah. This is going to be off topic a bit but I remember that when Illinois was searching for a new head coach a lot of people wanted Martin due to his recruiting skills (at least that is how I remember it, I could be wrong). So what happened? I don't follow his recruiting but it does not seem as if he has been much of a recruiting savant. And hopefully that won't change.
The green bag ran out of green

Currently on a tour of the USA Olympic training facility in Colorado Springs and they took us in a gym where kids are trying out for U15, U17,& U19 Basketball. Lo & behold sitting in the gym with about 30 other people is Juwan Howard checking out the players! Didn’t recognize any other coaches.

Say high to Adam Miller, he's there.
 
Regardless of how well Robinson's visit went, I'll be very surprised if Curbelo doesn't have first dibs. #notaninsider
Not sure of that, whole bird in a hand thing, Curbelo isn't ranked that much higher, probably not a call you have to make since I think Robinson is heading to Arkansas next week, but if he was ready to pop I don't think it would be smart to push him off a week waiting for Curbelo.

Underwood doesn’t care about rankings. 🤷‍♂️

Robinson is going to take that Arkansas visit. They're leading right now for sure. Kansas, Arkansas, Illinois the main 3 for him right now. He really enjoyed his visit.

Once Curbelo stayed silent after that Miami OV, I started liking our chances a lot more. Oregon is slow-playing him, and Curbelo camp not too happy about it.
 
The Thrill
He has impressed at the USA tryouts in Colorado. I think he is still waiting to see if and what sanctions come down on Kansas. Could carry on beyond November signing.
What sanctions - cheating at recruiting, or from the Snoop Dogg concert?
 
This was my thinking but my man tctornado says they are promoting a big class. They still want kk
Good read Rob. How's the baby doing? Yup, Arkansas with a class of 5 and promoting the "homie" thing.

Baby all good. I'm gonna bring her to the house of Paign this year. I gotta put all this yelling to good use. I'm anxiously awaiting the Curbelo visit. One of these guards needs to see the opportunity that's going to be available. I see Curbelo as at least a two or three year player, if not a four year. I know Miller wants to be one & done, but I see him as a two year.
