  1. If you remember, he was drafted by the SuperSonics and never went to camp, decided to give up basketball to become an actor.
  2. After thoroughly going over the list, i find it odd that it doesn’t list Michael Warren who played under John Wooden and along side lew Alcindor. Consensus all American 2 time Indiana all state player back in the mid 60’s. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=4&ved=0ahUKEwjJ2rabrPLjAhUMLs0KHTpzDPYQmhMIOTAD&url=https%3A%2F%2Fen.m.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FMichael_Warren_(actor)&usg=AOvVaw1UQx2YR0Cbh7i7PdOxFZZ6
  3. I’ll get you back on topic...
  4. Boilers offered today.
  5. Notre Dame offered yesterday. Also of note, Wesley has a new coach at South Bend Riley. His name is Andre Owens. He was a 1991 indiana all star. Was the starting point guard for Eddie Sutton at OK St. And played along side Big Country during their 1995 final four run.
  6. They also offered Blake Wesley yesterday.
  7. I was able to see him as a freshman while he mostly played his minutes on the JV, he was dressed for varsity also, just too many solid upperclassmen for him to get anything more than mop up duty. You could tell by his play on the JV that he was going to be the next big stud at Riley. He’s in the mold of Jaden Ivey who’s at Marian Hs in Mishawaka. Here is a link to his Dad. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=2&ved=2ahUKEwiuhdeb-93iAhUJI6wKHZkrB40QFjABegQIAhAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fballstatesports.com%2Fhof.aspx%3Fhof%3D200&usg=AOvVaw0bHKDigSmTAAbcLlQmoHEP
  8. Maybe true...but that coach is now at Southport. Not familiar with the new Riley coach at all. Wesley’s dad was a stud BBall player at Riley in the 80’s and starred at Ball state. So a lot of his coaching comes from his dad who is actually an insurance salesman for State Farm.
  9. ..you guys in here are turning on each other. Eat them alive until the divide is irreparable. This team lacks some major character that’s for sure. Not sure if they’re just trudging through this season to see it’s end, but this product is close to being worse than creams first season. IMO
  10. ??? That’s a well known fact. One on one conversations with Joe Schmoe are not considered media communication. It’s no different than him sharing it with his own son as long as there is no video/audio of previously stated.
  11. I can honestly answer that with this...CMB would never discuss a kid he is in on by giving away any direct hints. The best anyone will get out of him are those quotes that Ivey is always in the ND gyms with his guys, so one can only read into that. I will say this though, Demetrius Jackson also hung out in the ND gyms with the players and also was around the program like Ivey is, and CMB stated the exact same thing back then. There would have to be a strong pull for Jaden to want to leave this area and the school his Mom works at and played for. CMB was talking in tones that one can expect to see him as the coach at ND until retirement, so a coaching change won’t be the reason. The one thing that came up and can be hard to explain to outsiders is that ND is different from almost all other schools out there when it comes to networking after your career is done. When you hear people say that ND people take care of ND people, it’s true. So he has first hand knowledge of how ND works after his playing days are done, and that’s the case for everyone, even if you weren’t a star athlete. So in layman’s terms...that is where the value in that piece of paper from ND sets you up for life. Hence the term “it’s a 40 year decision, not a 4 year decision”. This can be a positive to take away for you though Boiler...and that is this, Devin Canady also hung around ND a lot but he wasn’t recruited all that hard, so he chose Princeton. His decision was easier for him to leave because his parents moved to Indy after he graduated, so staying close to home for him was not a factor. The difference though is CMB and his staff are making it known that they are not recruiting anyone Hard at all in the 2019 class and putting their emphasis on the 2020 class. He did say that if there was someone that fell into their lap, then they wouldn’t pass it up, but that they would prefer the right fit in a transfer or two in the 2019 class. So the players in the 2020 class know that they will be coming in and learning from mostly juniors and seniors when they arrive. And for Ivey...he’s definitely a 3-4 year player.
  12. Yes. I went to IU, my oldest(daughter) is an IU grad. Her and my oldest boy are are both finishing up their MBA this semester at ND. I worked for Blieandgoldillustrated for 8 years from 2001-2008. This convo with Brey happened today in a casual setting while we were just shooting at the hip. I’ve actually known Coach Brey for a number of years while taking part in his charities, mainly “men of heart.” On a side note, i wasn’t a writer or a beat writer at BlueandGold, i would be classified as a jack of all trades, but mostly involved with the website in talking about football and basketball recruiting, but mostly football.
