    Still in Hoptown or Louisville? What exactly does shopping his skills mean? Sort of odd unless I am missing something.

    2 Kentucky players in back to back seasons is great to see. 2017 JR Mathis from KY Country Day is in his Plebe summer right now and will see action this coming season. I suspect Zach will spend a season at the Navy Prep School which is what a vast majority of Navy recruits do prior to officially entering the Academy in Annapolis. Very happy for the big guy, he deserves it and will fit in well.

    I agree Wireman, but in this case Bexar County Judge Antonia Arteaga granted Auriantal and his wife, Nathalie Romao, conservatorship of Bassey, essentially giving them parental rights, on March 31. My guess is that as long as that court ruling is in effect then Coach Arteaga is pushing things. Adidas gave Arteaga's foundation Yes II Success a sponsored team to move this young man from NIKE so you can see Arteaga has a major say in what happens...

    I don't know much about the details or anything specific to this young players situation, but I do know this.....what the player says is not material. He has very little say in where he goes. As an overseas player who is now essentially adopted by the coach who was fired from this high school you can pretty much conclude that where he goes is being decided by someone other than his real parents over in Africa. The likelihood is that he is...

    Every situation is different and several of those mentioned went prep before their junior season. On the outside looking in exposure can't hurt. Heading into your senior season without serious options requires one to consider trying something different, especially when you have the talent but need to garner some additional interest. You probably are not going to gain any new school interest unless you have a really spectacular senior season...

    I don't think anyone can be upset towards Jalen or his family for doing what they believe is best for his basketball future. He is a senior to be and despite being a very solid D1 basketball prospect perhaps he wants to insure he gains more exposure than what he would have at Hoptown. It seems he had already decided he wanted to forego football in college and focus on basketball. If his options or offers to this point in basketball were not...

    I saw a play in Spartanburg in early July that convinced me Jake really has changed his game in a positive way. He slipped a high back pick coming back to the right side of the basket and jumped up to catch a lob from the top of the key throwing it down without hesitation. He just caught it one handed while in the air and slammed it. That was impressive and showed me he is continuing to do things on the court that he previously was not...

    Thanks OG. Big Jake had a huge night scoring against Ramey and consistently getting 6-8 PPG all week. I have seen Ramey quite a bit and they lack size for being an Adidas Gold team, so it is good to see Jake was assertive when he recognized having a size advantage. He could be a load at CovCath this season if he continues to be assertive with so many teams not having any size to match up with him. Watch out if that assertiveness with the...

    AK may not be scoring or shooting as well as he typically does, but that can be a good thing. Recruiters know he can score, it is what he does very well. Now they get to see how well he plays when his scoring his down or not shooting as he typically does. Coaches want to see how that impacts the other facets and AK is rebounding very well for a guard and his assist to turnover is still very good at + 2.3/1 as well. Everybody has a swing of...

    `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.
