anyone else follow DD on Twitter? well if you do, I'm sure you know who his Dad is...showtimedad or something like that. Anyway, he's a poor mans Lavar Ball...I feel like he could be trouble if DD doesn't get the playing time the old man feels like he should get. I can see him being a one and done kid...only because of his dad. Hey, I'm all for being proud of your son and all, and I hope I'm wrong, but I just have a bad feeling about this guy. Seems like if things don't go as he plans he could get very negative!
I could certainly be wrong, I can’t say I agree with your assessment of his dad. Nothing from him I’ve seen struck me as indicative of future problems.

Just looked at his tweets, also saw nothing wrong with them. Carry on all,

Ty for the update. Monday to know about him. June to find out if Isaac will be eligible. And a looooong summer and early fall of waiting to see the product on the court.

So maybe a Rhody didn’t let Ousmane in on their plans to get the Maryland brother transfers. He just decommitted.

AND ---A surprise announcement from the URI world:
Eric Bossi
@ebosshoops
· 4m
A week after committing Class of 2020 post, Abou Ousmane has decommitted from Rhode Island sources tell @Rivals
I wonder if we are still in play for him? He probably didn't like the transfer twins signing on with the Rams.

That's new as I didn't see that yesterday. The pick was as follows:


Mike Traini
Fight Massachusetts
Site Manager
3 / 3 2020
(100.00%)
102 / 112 All Time
(91.07%)
UMASS

At one point someone had Odukale 100 percent to UMass, and we saw that turn on a dime. But I think it's a good sign.

But, now with Ousmane decommitting from URI, I wonder if he is back on the table here for UMass? DeGray or Ousmane? Would Ousmane want to come here to get back at URI? We just filled Tre's backup.

All very interesting and I like URIne losing a recruit and goodwill. Now, if the June transfer policy goes south. URI will have two brothers sitting out a year.

Years from now folks will reminisce about Dr J’s prolific posting during the 2020 Quarantine...

I didn’t see anything different than any outspoken proud parent. Do we forget tre mom told a reporter they wouldn’t be getting access to him anymore
