    Remember, the question was High D1 and those staffs are not as always willing to take a chance just because of his size. Will he get bigger offers, he likely will. Will he get a High Major does depend on his summer performance imo.

    I have watched him play some, not frequently or anything. But as a legit 7 footer he has a chance, but in my opinion he needs to have a huge summer during the 3 live periods in July. If the big schools get involved and show heavy interest it has to happen then. As he moves into HS season there is just not enough big men to compete against that can provide insight or evaluation to his improvement. Since Covington Catholic does play in some...

    Statistically speaking you are correct, if he stays there a few decades he should get to state multiple times. For sure he will get to the region almost every year and likely win district championships every other year or so. I suspect he will never win state or be a title contender to do so though. You can argue he is equally a home run hire as it is a home run job.

    One of the best things about AK is that he is equally as effective playing around other good players as he is when he is the best player on the court. He can play lead or he can play a supporting role to a bigger star. Many kids need to be dominant with the ball, to be their best but Adam is so good no matter who he plays with or who is around him. Great things ahead for AK, he is a winner.

    Ulis or not, the young man is special. Not worried about him living up to the hype because the hype for this young man is not coming from what he has done against KY HS basketball competition. His hype has originated from what he has done playing against the best HS players in the nation, including kids several years older. He is already achieving it against elite D1 college prospects, his hype was not born from playing against HS kids that...

    From what I heard yesterday there is a very good indication he will be in KY at BGHS next year too. I am glad to hear that, he is an unbelievable talent and with a March birthday if he had been a freshmen he probably would have been younger than most others in his class and as an 8th grader he is probably older than most in his class. In my opinion, move on....there is no story on his age appropriateness for his class. His abilities are way...

    I agree that is very impressive, he is a special two sport player earning D1 offers in both sports. When Jalen is on which is often, he is one of the best scoring guards in the class. His strength and toughness set him apart. As a shooting guard few match his scoring outburst abilities. He can score in bunches.

    Looking at the stats Adam Kunkel had a really outstanding game. Scored 15 and only missed a single shot he took. He also led the team in assists and only had a single turnover. If the Juniors had been better on the boards as someone mentioned it could have went the other way. The other thing that jumped out was the turnovers killed the 2018 class. They had 20 as a team and several who likely played the lead guard spot had over 10 together. ...

    I know there is a good chance (no pun intended) he could potentially be going there, but a lot could play out between now and school starting. He has several offers to play Division 1 ball if he chooses that route as well. It could happen very well happen, but I would not put the period at the end quite yet. Just my opinion, and it has nothing to do with the school or coach there. I just know situations can be fluid with a young man in his...

    This is very true, for example is PRP a Top 25 program when Mabry leaves? He has been there a long time and the tradition has a chance to slide upon his departure. Open enrollment in Jefferson County has made who is coaching a particular program more important than the location of the school and what area of town a school had students mapped to. But some of those traditional programs (PRP may be like this when the time comes) will draw a...

    They can be a match-up problem if a team does not handle their press. Their defense creates their offense, If they cannot turn you over this year, they will not be as good in the half court offense as they were last season. Wilson and Patterson were their best offensive players.

    From what I have seen and know about how their Spring ball has went I provided a few comments on each of the Top 10.....Overall the best players usually are picked up by the best shoe sponsored teams to play in front of college coaches. Those program's sustainability is dependent on bringing the highest recruitable players into their program in addition to winning, so be chosen to be on those teams removes the politics out rankings. Since the...

    The one criteria you are eliminating as you consider a Top 25 program in the State is cutting down the nets at Rupp. For many coaches that is the ultimate dream and picking a program that will be high on the list. I said before, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and if you bar is set at winning a regional once in a great while, then the Berg makes your Top 25. For many that is "settling".

    So the only 2 players talented enough to become D1 scholarship basketball players in the last 15 years were each there because a family member was the head coach. Freeman only played the 2010-2011 season because his uncle was the Head Coach and Sparks who played almost 17 years ago was there because his Dad was the Head Coach. Unless this new Head Coach has some great young basketball players in the pipeline of his family, he should not expect...

    When was that and where did he go? I don't follow the 3rd region much, but I did not recognize the name. Who was before him? Any other in the last 10 years?

    I ask because I do not know, but who was the last Division 1 scholarship basketball player to come out of The Berg? Or the last 3? If I am a smart coach, I know that talent wins games, not coaching. I want to coach where there is consistent talent pool.

    Shorter way to say it is that a Top 25 job does not translate into having a Top 25 program for some.

    It all depends what your bar is for success. If the measure is winning your district and having the chance to potentially make a run at winning the region with a trip to Rupp, perhaps this is a spot where the competition makes the spot a good coaching job with the potential to be there many years. If the measure of a Top job is having the ability to produce a team capable of winning the State Title and producing Division 1 talent year after...

    They all can be good fits for a player like CJ. I like Iowa as a good fit as the coach there is solid and builds teams with players like CJ....no stars, just all really good basketball players. What I mean there is that some kids have to be the star of a team to flourish and what I like about CJ is that he understands the big picture of being on a team and does not need to play that star role. He just plays solid smart basketball and knocks...

    Nextup does have camps like many of the others, but no question their staff hits gyms during the HS season and Spring/Summer all the time. I have seen them as far away as Dallas this Spring, so they put the work in to evaluate.
