Ah, you beat me to it. Love Hawkins' sound. Nice and fuzzy.


As for the basketball player, I can't believe I'm watching a high school hype video with more than a few defensive highlights.

Liddell
Jacobs (Kansas)
Shannon
Hargrove, Jr (SLU)

Interesting that we never got very involved with Hargrove. On the surface, he's the kind of kid BU likes, 6'6" long and athletic wing. He was an East St. Louis kid, so maybe the fallout over Tillman kept us away. If you recall, Counzo was conveniently visiting Hargrove at ESL shortly after Tillman decommitted from us.

I think its because we feel really good about Shannon and Whitney. If Hargrove was a C or PF type kid, different story.

Just my .02 both those guys are better players

I would think that would be Walker's area of recruiting. Maybe he had an indication that Hargrove wasn't looking at Illinois. Could definitely be Cuonzo related. That can't be good for Cuonzo though to lose a guy out of his hometown to SLU.

From the games where I saw Hargrove play I thought he was pretty weak creating his own shot, but he could hit the 3 pretty well.

My impression, which might be way off base, is a poor mans version of Trevor Ariza. Not much of a creator but a 3 and D wing.

Assuming Ayo returns, try to swing for the fences and sell playing with a sophomore Ayo to a top tier big.

That and junior Frazier, junior Damonte, soph Tevian, soph Griffin, soph Samba, and other key returning talent (insert your favorites for breakout players here), should be an appealing choice to a top tier big should we look competent on the court this year. Sell them on taking down Michigan State and rising to the top of the B1G and the NCAA tourney. Should be a convincing squad of talent for a top tier big to sign on.

Below is the movement for UI's targets in the updated 2019 Rivals rankings. Some one off updates make the before/after not quite exact, but close enough. Whitney a 5 star and top 25; Shannon comes in as top 75.pic.twitter.com/UMeb9BlTkr
