This applies to 2021 and 2022, but raise your hand if you want an offer. :) Ignore the 2* ratings, some of these guys are high major level.

UMass offers Rafael Castro, 6’9 190lb Forward from NJ.

UMass and George Mason are his best offers at the moment.

Apparently 2021 recruit Robert Brown III visited the UMass campus right before all the coronavirus shenanigans went down.

Also, the Castro kid is heating up with offers after receiving one from UMass.

I'm expecting TB to pull down at least 1 solid 4 star in this class. Time for his recruiting connections beyond Woodstock to reveal themselves (I believe he has them).

Marlon Lestin:

Just spoke with a junior from Canada Marlon Lestin. (@Marlon4DH) He is being recruited the hardest from East Carolina and Holy Cross. In addition, he has landed offers from #providence, #UMass, and LIU. His goal is to go overseas or to the NBA after one or two years in college.

(Tony B. follows Lieberman)
"Jack didn’t have any envy in him," Calipari said. "He was the greatest coach to ever coach here."

I don’t expect 4 stars but more like jahvon Garcia who are probably underrated 3 stars by all accounts I can live with that

You're right, at the end of the day stars don't mean too much. But I think TB should be able to bring another impact player, probably not as good as Tre but maybe a similar hype level coming out of HS.

If Jahvon is that kind of player then I'll be very impressed. Hopefully we get to see them on the court this year.

Cool - any word on his motor?

I am not sure I can get on board with any recruit if he doesn't have a high motor?
In Matt McCall I trust!

I suspect at 6'10" that his motor is pretty high.

I'd say more like his "ceiling" is pretty high. :lol:

Is it possible you have that backwards? Where are you seeing he moved from '22 to '21?
