    `The way this young man (Bassey) is being fought over is what disturbs me about the game today, in particular with the young players who come over from overseas. If light was drawn upon some of these situations, it would be stories that would make many upset. NIKE and Adidas both have been fighting over Bassey. His Guardian was given a team on the Adidas circuit, YES II Success, to insure he moved to Adidas. The whole thing is mind blowing....

    Your initial post didn't say anything about playing right away, you just asked if he would he get playing time. I still believe that if you are truly high on a program's board, then playing time is what the program plans from you. He will be getting playing time at some point, maybe even early. I don't disagree recruiters often tell a prospect that they are high on the board even if they are not at the top. I am not basing how high he is on...

    Can't speak to Lexington, but both the 6th & 7th regions which comprise Louisville have returning players from 2016/17 1st team All Region honors as voted by the coaches in those respective regions. In the 7th somebody already mentioned the super talented Jay Scrubb and of course his teammate David Johnson is clearly a Top 10 player as he is ranked in the Top 50 in the country. The only other non-senior 1st team 7th region pick was Pierce...

    He is high on the NKU board, and that answers that question.

    What a list to get to choose from and by the end of the summer it will likely be 25 or more. From that list I love the hometown Norseman as it would be great to play in front of family and friends all the time.

    AK is on fire with picking up offers. Add Tenn Tech and UNC Asheville to his growing list.

    They are not perfect because they have in many cases HS kids it seems keeping them, but directionally they show trends pretty good. I know it seems like the folks in NKY either align with one or the other, but I love them both. The fact is they both are very hot and probably the two hottest recruits from NKY in a single year. Plus Big Jake is a nice D1 prospect to make 3 from NKY that are getting lots of offers. I see CJ and Adam as...

    You are looking at this from the wrong direction. The end game here is not Adair County in my opinion. The dots can be connected and my guess this is more related to NIKE and the EYBL. Zion just finished helping lead his Boo Williams team to the Final Four of the 17U EYBL Peach Jam and will still play EYBL for three more seasons. He is a NIKE star and you can bet the program he plays with will be playing in the 17U division which is very...

    The ironic thing is that the answer to both your questions may end up being the same answer.

    I agree that it will not be unheard of that elite kids forego playing high school in lieu of focusing on elite training. Along with that is home schooling and not being in a school building from 8-3 on the horizon. I get that, but what I don't get is why Zion would not just go back home in MD to directly train at the Pat the Roc Skills Academy. Coach Breeze may be great at skills development, but why not go to a pro that is in your backyard...

    Wiseman from Ensworth is a Junior to be, so I am unsure why he would be drawn to Adair County. That makes no sense to me. He played for Team Penny out of Memphis so there is not any AAU connection with Zion other than they both played with NIKE teams. I can't see that rumor coming to life.

    In each of these cases the younger players have never been in high school so by rule they are not considered transfers. Same situation with Sloan and Taylor County, he came there entering his HS career. I just don't think transfer rules apply to these younger kids who have never enrolled at any other HS.

    You have to remember that in each case it was kids pre-high school age so it really is not a transfer rule. Same when Sloan went to taylor County for his freshman year, the rules only seem to apply once you are in high school and then transfer that a "move" must be the reason without sitting down a year.

    Evidently the WACG connection was a strong pull. Earlier in the thread I hinted at this as a possibility if indeed this happens, but it was simply a guess knowing the history with Coach Breeze and Zion from the NIKE circuit.

    Any other freshman and I see your point. But this freshman if he stays in KY is very likely the best HS player in KY for the next four years running if he stayed that long. He changes the landscape more than any other player, he is simply that good. He would become the highest national top ranked recruit this state has seen in a long time, that is why we are talking about him. He came up to KY from TN, but he is not really from the TN area...

    I would agree with you in most cases, but this situation is so unusual. Everything is different in this case, starting with Zion himself. He is a phenom that has not surfaced in this state recently or likely will not again in the near future. He is that good and his impact is being made at a young age. He also is not from KY, he ended up in BG primarily because he was placed there by his travel ball team. This is not a situation where he...

    Good catch, I am not affiliated with the KOB but the 2017 calendar shows Wednesday and Thursday 1st round games as the 20th & 21st. The Friday 2nd round would be on the 22nd, 3rd round on Saturday the 23rd and the championship on Sunday on the 24th. That Sunday is Christmas Eve, so perhaps these are not the days at all. I am sure KOB will clear up the exact days of the event. I just have always enjoyed this event more than any HS holiday...

    It could be stated that it is more difficult to win the KOB than the LIT or even the Boys Sweet 16 and you could have many in agreement. The field that the leadership of the KOB bring from out of state is what makes this event special. They select teams from all over the country as shown this year while mixing in strong locals area teams and a few from elsewhere in the state to bring a good mix of solid teams seldom found in a 16 team field. ...

    The elite age division of the EYBL is 17U and it is the best of the best. Zion played some 17U last year when WACG did have a 17U team in the EYBL. They did not win many games at all and were not renewed as a 17U EYBL program this year. So Zion who wanted to play 17U elected to move to Boo Williams in 17U age division where WACG lacked a team in that age division of the EYBL. Zion deserves credit in that he chose to play in the most elite...

    The HS Coach with a previous connection would make one believe Adair County, but not sure that connection is as strong now that Zion plays with Boo Williams on the NIKE EYBL circuit. Previously, We All Can Go (Connection with Coach Breeze) was his connection to moving to TN and subsequently BGHS, but I have no idea if that tie has been maintained since joining Boo Williams NIKE program which is a flagship to NIKE. NIKE is going to want to keep...

    Very interesting, I can see how that speculation could produce scenarios that he may not be at WKU. Does anyone know why he resigned or what he is leaving to do?

    I am not sure on the exact number, but WKU seemed to oversign and they may have needed to free up more than 1 just to get to their 13. I doubt WKU has any open spots still after the announced departure this week. Nobody has said anything about Mitchell Robinson leaving have they? Where did that come from?

    No, pretty sure straight to Hargrave from PCC. However, not sure if he was at any other school prior to PCC when he was younger. I know he played varsity basketball early.

    Also the head coach at NC State who was an assistant at U of L was also head coach at Hargrave so the ties to Hargrave are deep. Congrats to Braxton. He as caught in a change of coaches at OSU where the coach that recruited him was no longer there. New coach wants to bring in his guy(s) so this works out for all.
