Would be fantastic if we could get an athletic 6'6-9" wing with handles, that has some touch, and capable rebounder, that's all I want.

Mady Traore's Twitter announcement came with Tipton Edits.

It's always nice when we get advance notice on missing out on a recruit before we can get excited.

Oscar Tshiebwe left WVU yesterday. Poor kid's confidence has been down and certainly not having a lot of fun with Huggins. I would love for us to shake a stick at this idea once again.

Rumor that he seen working out with another team, possibly in Miami. Also reports that he was skipping workouts and putting in minimal effort in practices and in the weight room. Not sure he would fit into what Underwood is building here.

When recruiting I would have ranked him above Kofi. Of course he might still be if he went to UI.

On the other hand, Underwood is part of the Huggins coaching tree. So, maybe not.

A developing 7’3” Harold Yu from Sierra Canyon hasn’t committed anywhere. Could be an inside presence and lob city for Curbelo.

Isn't sneaker money swirling around every 5 star kid?

Maybe, but I've never heard of it influencing a player to transfer to a lesser program once he's actually played a full season at a school. (a school that's currently top 15 at that).
