    Your no doubt right about that. I live in the area and had been hearing he was coming for two weeks though I haven't heard about anyone else minus some rumors that have been comfirmed as not true.

Adair lost a ton of talent last year but will have back Corey Melton who averaged 17 a game and a rising junior Anthony Payne. The guardplay will be great the problem is no bigs for Adair.
    I just have a hard time understanding why he would want to leave a good program like Bowling Green. They're usually loaded with athleticism every year in all sports.

    You don't bring him in a guy like Harmon if you're not going to go all in. I would expect more additions

    Like I said in one of the threads yesterday HS does not matter to aau people. Winning in hs does not matter. The exposure, the competition, and the so called coaching comes in the summer.

    The Harmon's know that Zion will get tons of skill work at Adair. Coach Breeze is a skill training guy. Zion is familiar with what he does. It has nothing to do with where Adair is located on a map besides being fairly close to Druthers.

    Ya, that was my first thought. KOB gonna have to start waiting to see who enrolls where before making their lineups official. Maybe BG will back out now.
    I also saw Adair Co. schedule is out and they have a tourney scheduled doe that time and alot of local competition. I hope they change and beef up their schedule bcos Adair Co. is a long way from the Indiana border

    "Deron Breeze talks about the upcoming KySportsTV Prep Showcase and the importance of those type of events for players"

    Deron Breeze and Pat the Roc are close.

    Pat the Roc was running skills at the event. Pat the Roc does Zion Harmon's individual skills training. Writing has been on the wall for awhile.

    Breeze is a great skill guy. Also has a lot of great contacts. He worked with my son several times, and helped with college recruiting also.

    For the truly elite, HS doesn't matter. Just the way it is.

    This message is to all Bluegrass Prep members, high school coaches, athletic directors, high schools and fans. The King of the Bluegrass has NEVER and will NEVER take a team OUT of our tournament because a player leaves a school. We invite TEAMS, COACHES and FAN to our tournament. NO 9TH GRADER is bigger than our tournament. Since AAU basketball has arrived as it is today we face these issues every year. Players come and go, good coaches and good PROGRAM come to the KOB.

    Why is everyone surprised? Tyger Campbell was the #1 eighth grade three years ago and played for Christ Presbyterian from Nashville. They played in the KOB. At the end of the year he ended up at a prep school in Indiana. I wonder what they gave him? Several years ago, if you recall, there was a highly ranked eighth grader at South Warren (they had a contract to play in the KOB) he also left and went...who know where.

    Now, South Warren did not play in the KOB. THEY requested we let them out of the KOB contract and we honored their request. That's the ONLY way we will, upon mutual agreement, take a team out of our tournament.

    Once again somebody is giving this young man bad advice. They are taking him away from a school that showcased him to the fullest...I call this USING the school that has GREAT talent around him to make himself look great. WHERE IS THE LOYALTY?

    My prediction is this. If they don't surround him with very good talent his game will suffer. He had better have a great big man that must be double teamed if his game is to flourish. (Hopefully Wiseman from Nashville Ensworth doesn't follow him to Adair County). Unless a bus load of kids transfer to Adair County he will be double teamed and physically challenged ever night.

    Many of you know that I worked for Hubie Brown for several years. He once told me, "Anytime you promise a kid something, wheather it be high school or college...HE OWNS YOU". The ONLY thing I ever promised a kid was that I was going to be on him about his character and his grades. No PLAYER is going to hold me hostage.

    To all BOWLING GREEN coaches, players and fans, NO PLAYER IS BIGGER than the TEAM and we are excited to have you in the Gardner Law King of the Bluegrass.

    One, if not the biggest tournaments in the country, takes teams out of thier tournament if a big time player leaves...we DON'T do that.


    Just so you know, two years ago 44 of the top 100 kids in the high school rankings were NOT in the same school their senior year as their junior year.
