    Did TJD commit to UCLA?

    Darius Leonard is an absolute beast, and makes a couple of impact plays a game. If he keeps this up, he will win DROY

    My wife and I point this out to each other all of the time. It’s really sad, and like you, I feel social media has had an incredibly bad effect on how people communicate with each other. It’s one of the reasons I don’t have Facebook, Twitter, IG, etc.

    Not to derail the thread any further, but think about this for a minute. If you’re on you’re phone or Internet for 2 hours a day, every day, that’s 1/12th of the day. Over a an entire year, that’s one whole month (730 hrs) of time spent on the phone or internet. I saw this the other day and was surprised as I never really thought about it like that.

    IF we were able to get TJD and Stewart, would that be the best front court in the country?

    Can anyone speak to how athletic AF is? From his videos, I can tell he’s got a good shot and handles the ball pretty well, but I can’t get a feel for his athleticism.

    It is the same guy who rushed over to GBI to tell them Newman wasn’t visiting about 10 min after bryan200088 came here with the info. And don’t forget, he’s the reason we have these:
  9. I think that’s the beauty of his offense. I grew tired of living and dying by the three ball during Crean’s tenure, and I’m glad I know longer have to watch the three man weave at the top of the key. With CAM’s offense last year, we got good looks from the outside due to ball movement. We just didn’t have anyone who could knock on open shots last year, but the looks were there. His offensive style coupled with his focus on defense is a very sustainable model, and I think he will have us competitive/contending year in and year out. In regards to his recruiting, I think you’re seeing him go after guys that fit his style, and even though one maybe ranked lower than another, he’s content on accepting the commitment from anyone he’s offered. At Dayton, I’m sure he tried this, but probably couldn’t fill his roster out exactly how he would’ve liked (guessing).

    We could both find stats that fit our narratives. My point was, that you can never tell how kids will develop or adjust to a higher competition. Anderson is very highly touted in regards to his outside shooting, even though he shot sub 40% in high school. Romeo, Hunter, RP and Fitzner can all shoot the ball really well. IMO, we do not lack in the shooting department like we did last year.

    I think you’re worrying too much about it. Those are all high school stats. The kids will develop. On top of that who knows how kids will perform from high school to college. Some that didn’t shoot it too well will develop into good shooters, and some of the ones who did shoot it well won’t adjust to college level defense. Let it play out before we complain about not having enough shooters. I think we’ll be pleasantly surprised this year, and I think we have a good mix of shooters and people who can go and get their own shot.

    I could easily see Stewart at C, TJD at PF and KB at SF, with Stewart and TJD being interchangeable. We’d have one of, if not the biggest and most talented front courts in America. If Romeo stayed and Phinisee turns out as good as I think he’s going to be, that’s a Championship starting 5.

    It’s always hard when the economy is booming. All of the good candidates already have jobs.

    Well I’m glad we made his top 19.......

    Up up and away!

    I think there is some confusion amongst us. The “max vertical” is when the player gets a few steps to get into the jump, which allows momentum to help. A “standing vertical” is when the player is stationary prior to jumping. A max vertical is always higher than a standing vertical. Justin’s was a max as you can see in the tape. 48” is still insane though, even with momentum. This is a great accomplishment and can help with recruits as well. I really like the strong presence the program has on social media now.
