Judging a class before it plays a game is pretty stupid. We ALL made that mistake 2 years ago. Apparently we haven't learned.


The stats vs character statement is also annoying. Marcus accepted prostitutes, jewelry and money while he was here. Mack smoked weed daily and was arrested for theft. Major character marks during their times here, yet two of the best to ever wear the uniform and held in very high regard (by me included).

I'm hopeful this is the best class ever. But let the careers, be them completed here or elsewhere, play out. That's all.

Well MM first class avg more points and shot it better than the 2016 class... and that was with a guy that didn't play much and another guy nobody ever heard of.
This is a pretty damn strong and good point here...Carl Pierre and KTM!

Found a video of one of Sy's playoff games this year. I was impressed with his court awareness and he showed multiple facets to his game in this clip.
We still have 1 spot open and the signing period runs until May 16.

LSU and Clemson may be running out of spots. Clemson has a PG and a C coming in, and LSU is pushing hard for some wing.

Is McCall waiting on a certain player who is waiting on another school which in turn is waiting on another player ad infinitum? 'Cause we have the available scholly, what's holding things up?

I think you nailed it. It can be a chess game sometimes.

Nothing earth-shattering, but it's nice to hear things like this from an unbiased source. He's a writer for SLAM Magazine.

That guy might be a perfectly fine writer or “scout” but hard to take him seriously given his Night at the Roxbury profile photo.

Edit: When I first posted this I forgot what photo I have for my profile photo in here. Now that I remember, I guess I should be the last person to question someone else’s photo.

But mine’s not changing. Long live Mike Schank!

I kind of like the late bloomers, kids that grow into their body frames, and skills start to shine with a coaching staff that knows how to develop them. Realistically athletes shouldn't even reach their peak until late 20's early 30's, so it doesn't really bother me if a kid doesn't have the best highlight videos coming out of high school. Good fundamentals, right attitude, and physical tools should produce good players under a good staff. So far, I like the kids Coach McCall has brought in and looks at

Chatman is #1 and I am really looking forward to seeing him on the court.
