    What couldn't they figure out last year?

    Did Rico's bro have an offer? I thought NAIA was his top offer.

    I am pretty sure he did Clyde. I thought I remember him having 1 maybe 2.

    I see him with a zillion defensive rebounds with the quicker bunnies off and running with the outlet pass. Waiting to set up the offense seems counter productive to their strengths, but I suppose that we'll see constant adjustments based on circumstances that should be enough to keep other teams' defenses off kilter and confused. I suppose if used brilliantly and seamlessly it'll be "if at first you don't succeed", then there's always Jake, but still hard to see him as the first option under their style of play.
    Problem for all kids Jake's size in high school is having to guard a 6'4 high school center. Who does he guard if Cooper plays a bunch of guards and Sean McNeil? He'll never have to guard a kid under 6'8 in college. Hard to expect him to keep up with a kid if they play him away from the basket. Of course, that same kid has to guard him down low so it's a trade off.

    The coaching staff will have to put him in a situation to succeed. Unlike last year in the regional championship game. Ben Weyer was dominating from 15ft and in so they put Jake in. IMO at that time CCH should have went zone. But they stayed man and asked Jake to guard Weyer man to man. Weyer and NCC immediately recognized the mismatch and Weyer hit two or three straight threes. Then they took Jake right back out of the game. Asking Jake to guard Weyer on man to man on the perimeter was not the best decision in my opinion. Had they went zone when Jake went in I believe it could have changed the game. If he is used, and used correctly this year I believe he will have a good year. The CCH staff is one of the best high school staffs around. I'm confident they will be fine.

    Congrats Jake and the Walter family! I can only guess that Jake will see more and more offers as this season, and the summer progress/ Hopefully he will get the one that he is really hoping for.
