Congrats to Rahsool Diggins on picking up another offer from University of Massachusetts!

There are no offers. Medium interest is not an offer.

Actually there are offers. 14 of them. At least according to Verbal Commits. And his Twitter feed. And a story on Rivals. Not sure why you felt the need to correct someone about something like the # of offers a kid has, but if you do feel the need in the future, can you at least be correct with your correction? The medium interest probably has something to do with his level of interest in the school or vice versa.

Does he really have 14 offers? I have no idea!

Another SG offer. He's a 6'6 SG from Philly. Charley must not have received the notice that Ward decided not to go to VT Academy. FWIW, Class A is the lowest class in PA high school BB. That may be why his offers are less than stellar.

Saw that the Camaron Tongue kid verbally committed to Santa Clara. A bit of a bummer as I was hoping we might have a shot with him. Sounds like his body is developing and he can rebound and shoot. I think he had been on campus a couple of times as well.

Well I guess I am about as bummed as I can be about someone I’ve never actually seen play.

Interesting commitment for sure. Good for him for knowing what he wanted and going for it.

Saw that Jalen Weaver, a shooting guard out of Colorado, just visited campus. I think he’s fairly well thought of and we were the first school to offer him earlier this year.

Whenever you can get a 4* kid to campus it’s impressive.. that’s step one, with winning you start to get those kids to commit!!

^ I don't know if Cormier had any influence on getting Weaver on campus, but it seems he made an impression on Weaver's dad.

I'm so fortunate to have met this wonderful man. What a great basketball mind! With Paul Cormier. Thanks UMass.
