    Thought so as well when I saw it on Twitter. Seems to jive well with some people saying he may come back. But his dad has been pretty vocal on Twitter about the ride being over.

    Not necessarily. He says he’s hiring an NCAA approved agent to guide him through the process and will retain his eligibility.

    Just looking at 2020, I’m not sure the “rare” part is true. I mean, half the top 50 look like they had a pretty significant impact on their team. Maybe I’m missing you point though. Admittedly, I haven’t followed the back and forth on this very much.

    If Zakharov wants to come here, absolutely take him. Kid can move and shoot. Saw someone say he’s a Russian Giorgi....1) I’ll take that and 2) his ability is more advanced than Giorgi. Look what our staff did with Giorgi. Now apply that to this kid. Clip from 2017 I think....the music sucks...

    Tennessee alum here. HARD PASS. The kid can’t walk and chew gum at the same time. His recruiting ranking in his class dropped from fringe top 30 to finish at 80 for a reason. Very good athlete. Not a good basketball player.

    I remain fairly confident Kofi is coming back. No reputable site has him even getting drafted and we all know his deficiencies, all of which can be remedied with hard work and a good coaching staff.

    Two things: 1) shockingly, Virginia scores. Decently. About half their games were under 70 points. They are also likely running it back with everyone from this years roster (Huff, Woldentasae and Hauser can all play for free next season and they only have 1 commitment besides Franklin. Tony...

    Not to stay off topic in the recruiting thread, BUTTTTT5 times in the last decade Duke has been in the elite eight. I’m not really sure what you consider consistent championship conversation if that’s not it. As far as UNC, Roy has won more titles than Dean albeit making less Final Fours, Elite...

    He was. And he’s grown 2 inches since then (at least, 247 lists him at 6’9 out of hs and this tweet says he’s 6’11)

    I would rather have Adam back than another new player. A kid who knows the system and already has a year building chemistry with the current players? That’s better than a new face.

    You take Miller back with open arms. Cant fault the kid for getting bad advice and then deciding not to listen to that advice and do what HE wants and what HE thinks is best for him. I guess I don’t understand the perceived hate towards the kid.
