Covington Catholic's CJ Fredrick vs. Cooper's Adam Kunkel

Page 3 of Who is better? Why? The Cooper win over CovCath thread turned into this debate so obviously a lot of people think this is more important than the game ... 43 comments | 4095 Views | Go to page 1 →

I talked to a local coach where CJ had an offer and he said he wanted him to fill JP Maccura role and was heart broken when he chose Iowa. I see Adam as a potential star at Belmont where CJ will be a starting role player at Iowa in time. Tic Tac both are great and each coach recruit for needs.

Walters was the difference at KOB had 20 points and was killing Covington Catholic.
    Does CJ have a family member that use to play in the big 10?

    No, but from earlier threads posted on this site there are family connections to Iowa. I am not stating this to be a fact, but was posted on this site.

    Are you thinking about when the Iowa coach was at ND, where his uncle played basketball?

    They are two special players that have different games. CJ is a tough kid, lots of grit who is very skilled with a good basketball body. I see him as a very good shooting guard in college and I believe he performs his best when he has other really good players around him. AK has a Jason Williams like flair to him, flashy but still fundamentally sound. He will continue to get better and I see him becoming an elite PG in college. He is simply a killer, his demeanor is a great asset to his game.

    They both are special, but to say they clearly are the best two in the state diminishes some other outstanding players. Players like Trevon Faulkner, Andrew Taylor, Jay Scrubb, Mickey Pearson, Steven Fitzgerald, and Anthony Wales all have a shot as well as a few others. I believe this year the race for Mr. Basketball is wide open. The 2018 class has so much depth and will produce some great college players in the upcoming years. All of these young men are great kids too, this class is really special in that regard.

    Very much in agreement with your thought process. I have seen all of the kids you mentioned play, I just don't believe Muskie has yet.

    Thank you....I know they both are special but there's some good talent in this class. To say they are co Mr. Basketball is a bit short sighted....good luck to both of the young men this season

    Honestly idk enough about either team to give a very good stance on those three. These two teams are so far away from me that I only see them at KOB or state tournament. I know AK, CJ, and donít honestly know the big kid from CCH name. From what I watched at the KOB Iíd take CJís surrounding cast if the kid that was hurt is as good as I heard.
