    Is this the anonymous 7-footer who was seen roaming the halls of Covington Catholic a few weeks ago?

    I'm guessing so. I mean how many 7 ft kids are there. As far as anonymous, I heard he is transferring from Ga. If so, there is only one kid listed in Ga that is 7ft and plays basketball.

    I told another member on here during the state tournament that I had heard CCH may be adding a player to next year's team that would make them extremely tough to beat. That info came from a reliable source that covers recruiting regionally and nationally. No names or info on any kids in particular when he told me...just a "heads up."

    Fredrick's nephew is already enrolled at CCH I believe. At least that is what "they" said. The other boy I am told is coming after the season or maybe already there.

    Is the boy at NCC the equalizer to CCH's new gets? And is the boy at NCC a soph or Jr?

    I wasn't referring to Fredrick's nephew and my info didn't come from someone on that staff. I know about Fredrick's nephew and the other young kid.

    The kid I've heard about is going to be a senior next year.

    And after doing a little digging, I'm told THIS kid is big but very raw.

    When Ruthsatz was hired, I remember on here that people were talking that he may take CCH to the level of a "prep academy" Is that where they are headed? Looks and sounds like it to me.

    But wait, this is about NCC trying to keep up.

    Sounds like the Louisville private schools getting kids from all over.

    How is this about NewCath trying to keep up? They were choice #3. Kid fell into their lap. Highlands would have turned him away? I use Highlands b/c that is your school, but you could replace them with anyone. Who would turn away this kid besides CovCath?
