    Meanwhile, a truck is traveling throughout the South at this time, picking up 7-footers and will be delivering them to Northern Kentucky schools later this week.

    I talked to a parent at CCH tonight. They said after two years of high school in Atlanta he didn't have enough to enroll at CCH. He had fewer than 6 credits and would start there as a 17 yr old frosh. I don't understand why New Cath is thinking about taking him! I guess they will try to do anything to beat Cov Cath! I will give a lot of respect towards the administration at Cov Cath ! They didn't want to take the risk of letting this play! I think this situation brings a lot of red flags!! But good luck to whenever this gentleman plays!

    No. That's NewCath teacher, Nick Enginger.

    This is an example of way too many assumptions and innuendo versus a fact discussion which is okay when you understand the context. Very few if any know exactly what is going on. Examples of conflicting reports is he could not play a lick of basketball to he is very good defensively, just raw on offense. I read he has been in Atlanta for less than a year and then read he has spent two years in school in Atlanta. The list could go on. We do apparently know his name and I believe it is the young man playing AAU ball with the Cincy Lakers.

    It is a long time coming as to whether we will see him suit up for a KY HS team. What is obvious is that a five page thread took on a life because in this state we get worked up in a frenzy when the potential of a 6'10 - 7'0" player emerges, especially a transfer and not home grown. I guess it is because we simply do not have very many big men playing KY HS basketball. They are like a sighting of Bigfoot when they show up to check out a school. It is what it is.

    Unless you are a detective, then you are in the wrong line of work. You absolutely nailed it. NewCath cares so much about beating CovCath that they will skirt all of the permissible rules to beat them. I hope that the KHSAA didn't read that.

    I have never heard of NCC being anything but a fine, upstanding school.

    All kidding aside, if you are Ron Dawn the Covington Catholic challenge is increasing and you have to do whatever you can do within the rules to have a fighting chance.

    If the kid is 7'0'', it's safe to say that's he going to be a presence defensively.

    They didn't have to worry about Covington Catholic last year. They couldn't even beat Holmes!

    Why the great concern about NCC not being able to beat CovCath. I don't recall hardly anyone beating them in the state, so why pick on a team with an enrollment of 350? What about all the big schools in the area (and state) who couldn't come close to CCH, or NCC for that matter. I don't think NCC has to apoligize for their record over the last 5 years to anyone. Let everybody in area (and the state) who has a better one line up, and it will be a damn short line.
