    Lets snag JB and/or NJ and put a bow on our recruiting efforts of 2022. Skyy, TSJ, Mayer, Drai, Amani commitments in a calendar year is pretty wild

    With the Nojus chatter, I think if getting him leads to JB we do it. Would love a three headed monster of, MJ, NI and JB with ZZ too. Having three players from the same AAU team and HS team would do wonders for cohesion and they could easily run them all together with the 2s during games in...
