Looks like I spoke too soon on Trey Green ... I figured he would give K State a shot but hearing he committed to Xavier on his visit ...

MVP of Peach Jam ... Big get for Sean Miller ... They lead for Reid Ducharme as well ...

If we had more scholarships to fill, Brad would have been in on Ducharme ... Easily one of the best shooters I saw this spring/summer ...

It won't matter much unless Miller has learned to coach an offense.

You have a point but John Groce says hi. Also, Miller's conference record is much better than that of John and he did pretty well during his last tenure at Xavier.

True, although Groce is in a considerably easier conference now than Miller is and performed considerably worse in his stint at a high major than did Miller.

Not a true apples-to-apples comparison at the high major job when Miller had the FBI sniffing around the program

The more clips I see of Moretti, the more impressed I am. Excellent decision making, excellent ball handler and VG shooter. I'd love to land him.

Great news on the McKenney front: was afraid we were slipping away. Gonna be a hard get, but virtually all studs are.

A good P&R player, read the situation very well.

Illinois: “They talk to me the most, most likely. I feel like they let everybody play. It’s like a family over there, it’s a brotherhood. The coaching staff, they want the best for their players.”

That sounds...pretty, pretty good.

RIVALS' REACTION

"Indrusaitis has recently added an offer from Iowa State. His playing style would fit in perfectly with all of the schools he listed, but it’s hard to not imagine that Illinois is sitting in a good spot early on, considering location and connections. Indrusaitis is a player that we will take a long look at in terms of giving him a bump in our next rankings cycle for the 2024 class."

General Recruiting Update for you guys:

Perrin had 20 points and 8 rebounds today to lead France to an 82-66 win over Israel ... Kid is young but has tons of potential ... Excited to see what he is in 2-3 years, especially after Fletch ...

UK getting a commitment from re-class big guy Ugonna Kingsley here in a few minutes

Talked to someone I know with Team Durant. Sounds like Hansberry isn't planning any more visits right now ... Still is a 2 horse race ... Oregon is a new offer for him but they are already out ... They are likely to land a commitment from his teammate KJ Evans and get the very rare re-commitment from Mookie Cook ...

Hearing that Aden Holloway is committing this evening to Auburn ... Devin Royal is committing on Wednesday and I have been told he will be joining Ohio State along with Scotty Middleton who is committing on August 6th ... Marquette is also about to land two commits with Tre Norman and Al Amadou

Mississippi State is also making a name for themselves with their new staff as they are expected to be the spot for Josh Hubbard as well as Isaiah Coleman ...

Lots of top kids starting to narrow things down and commit ... Leaving our options if we don't land Hansberry extremely limited in terms of HS kids ...
