Looks like a more agile and high-flying Finke.

Awesome! Anyone know if Alan's family came for the visit this weekend?

If Bryce Golden was heading to Pitt, am guessing he was wanting to stay closer to home? So Georgetown or even Syracuse may fit that?

Three Crystal balls out there for him right now and all three are for Syracuse, so my money is on boeheim.

Golden looks pretty athletic. Not a ton of tape of him online, but he has a pretty good looking shooting stroke as well (not in this video).





Strong pursuit of another HS big suggests to me that the fifth year market isn't shaping up to be all that fruitful. In the long run, that might not be such a bad thing. Unless we land one of Cunningham or Caroline (which is looking increasingly unlikely), the needle isn't going to move all that much next year. May be better in the long run to give these prospects a chance to develop next year.

Thanks. Thatís a big clarification. I assume if the Hinson visit happens and is an official visit, then the staff prefers Hinson.

Bryce Golden

Looks good on the highlight video's, but then who doesn't! Seriously, though he has a nice looking shot and looks like he gets up and down the court.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. But hard to see us avoiding a Creaning or two if we go into 2019 with one scholly.

I think "avant garde" would be a kind way to describe the roster management that has been practiced thusfar by Josh Whitman's two major hires.

Who can help me out. Feliz commits to South Florida, under the Antigua brothers, out of high school. Both brothers are fired under a cloud of academic fraud. Feliz ends up at Northwest Florida State which seems to be a junior college. Did the new South Florida coach not want him? Did he no longer want South Florida if there were no Antiguas? Were there no other schools that wanted him and he ended up at a junior college? Did he not qualify for South Florida due to academics and went the j.c. route? Was he part of the academic fraud? How did he end up at Northwest Florida State?

Hinson on the other hand is a tweener who thinks heís a SG and may not want to or be able to play forward.
Yeah he was a DE with offers from every major football program in Florida, but he can't play forward?

If he sticks with the number in the picture, who was the last #14 for the Illini? I'm usually pretty good at remembering numbers, but I can't recall this one.

I thought that Finke was a less agile and low-flying Ekey.

Ryan Schmidt 2015, but Fred Miller was probably the best #14.

Which would thus make Ekey a less agile and low-flying Larry Bird.

NCAA never cleared him due to the academic fraud, thus forcing him to go the 2 year JUCO route.

BTW, Tate made 38 3ps in his rookie year in Canada....and 2d in league in total assists. You just never know.

In home planned with Okoro

Looks like the coaches want to see if it worth continuing to pursue Okoro like they apparently did with Ramey or move on to next one. https://twitter.com/jakeweingarten/s...64176393822208
