I wish there was a laugh button instead of just like.
And a don't like button. Get too many don't likes and your post gets yanked, kind of like the Gong Show. Get too many posts yanked and Dan gives you a "vacation."

I haven't heard Illinois mentioned seriously with Storr in a little while. He'd be a nice consolation prize, though.
I can confirm from conversations with AJ’s mom that he is VERY MUCH in contact with the staff and has been “promised” a spot in the 2022 class. If MSU/Izzo or blue bloods come around things could change. Kid loves Izzo but otherwise he’ll be wearing 🔶🔷

Need to lock him up fast. Kid is an absolute stud and might be the best recruit we are on regardless of class.

Hope he learned for the mistake, but it was a huge one.

Position of need. Kid has a very high ceiling.
How many young people his age haven't done something pretty darn stupid? Learn and grow from it! He obviously has more good actions than bad to get to where he is today! Let those without sin cast the first stone... I'm glad we got another big to help out! He got some game and will definitely help this team! And the family atmosphere and culture here will help him grow!

Impressive use of his left hand. Appears to be right handed as he shot his free throw, but most highlights around the rim were left handed. Good stuff.
He’s 15 and HUGE with terrific instincts/touch around the hoop. Could end up being too good for college hoops, like JJ Taylor

That's Drew Gooden working out with Omar! I'm just glad to see he can make a jump shot and he's not afraid to take it! Definitely can work on that and doesn't look that bad too me....
I was just kidding, but Drew laying bricks too. I assumed an nba guy would be hitting all those shots in the drill. Thanks for sharing the video.

How does he graduate 8n three years? Is that common?
It seems to be fairly common these days for athletes who are also good students. I think the key is that it is 3 years, and 2-3 summers.

Guessing at the math:
Most degrees are 120 hrs. to graduate.
3 years * 2 semesters * 16hrs/semester = 96hrs
2-3 summers * 6hrs = 12-18hrs.
That leaves 6-12 hrs.

Do they have any AP credit coming in?
Do they get Kinesiology credits for playing basketball?
