Maybe another Weeks in our future? Tyriek is Class of '21 and he's already 6'5 so maybe he gets to 6'7 or so. Check out who went to see him play.

We just offered Alex Tchikou, a 6-11 PF. Would we just throw an offer out there or is there some secret connection there? Look at the other offers.

Alex is certainly being recruited by some power schools. There must be some connection as why else would he be even be interested in us?

Yeah, right in our wheelhouse. Class of '21 so we have time to work on him. He just needs to experience the Mullins Center game atmosphere and he'll be hooked.

After a bit of investigation ......... He played at Brewster Academy last year. Garcia plays for Brewster, but this is his first year there. I don't think it's a stretch to figure out who on the coaching staff knows him, or at least knows about him.

Long shot thinking but - He's from Paris, France and I believe we currently have 3 players that speak French on the team. They may be helping out with the recruiting. It's a long shot, but Tre and Alex would be the best 4-5 combo in the league.

Connections can have a surprising effect on recruiting. Look at who Loyola (Md) was able to sign last year, a couple of 4 star big men from Spain because of ties to their assistant coach.
