  1. Interesting that Arizona was the one school in his final six not to get an official visit. Also interesting that he's spending an extra day on campus at UNC and Louisville...
  2. This all begs the question of whether we'll get a schedule or new assistant announcement first...
  3. The simple way to look at it is how to replace Romeo and Juwan statistically, but I think that oversimplifies things personally. I anticipate the front court to be much improved due to increased size and depth, for instance. Stat-wise, TJD and Brunk should be able to come fairly close to replacing Morgan's production, with potential improvement from Davis, Thompson, and Smith covering the difference. Defensively, though, that group should be much better if for no other reason than we won't need to run Morgan out there for 30+ minutes at the 5 so frequently (that's not a knock on JMo, his effort last year was considerable; he was just undersized and overworked). The bigger question in my mind is the back court. If healthy, Phinisee for a full year at the point should be fine. I'm also an Al Durham fan, and expect to see him take a step forward. Realistically, though, this team will rise or fall based on the productivity they get from Green, Hunter, Anderson, and Franklin. I think that group could easily match or surpass what Langford gave the team last year, but it could also easily come up short. Everyone will focus on 3pt shooting, and an improvement there is important, but the overall production offensively and defensively from the 2 and 3 spots will make or break the season, IMO.
  4. For those unfamiliar with his story, they don't come finer than Kevin Kuwik: https://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/ct-xpm-2014-03-28-ct-kevin-kuwik-dayton-assistant-haugh-spt-0328-20140328-story.html
  5. I've always preferred staggering true PGs on a two year basis, so that you always have two true lead guards on the roster, one as the starter and one as the understudy. The timetable for Phinisee and Lander may not make that possible in this case, though.
  6. I wonder if Archie might hold a scholarship back on the off chance Clarke decides to reclassify in the spring...
  7. Reportedly receiving interest from IU, among others: https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/high-school/2019/05/11/basketball-recruiting-kamari-lands-impresses-eybl-game-awaits-offers-iu-and-louisville/3643234002/
  8. Peegs added a crystal ball pick of Leal to IU yesterday.
  9. Rayjon Tucker is reportedly deciding between Memphis, Kansas, Iowa State, Auburn, and West Virginia sometime next week: https://247sports.com/college/kansas/Article/Report-Rayjon-Tucker-to-choose-between-KU-Memphis-Iowa-State-Auburn-West-Virginia-131800466/
  10. Given the recent spate of bad recruiting news, locking down the state in 2021 is looking like it may be even more critical for CAM's long-term prospects than originally thought...
  11. Morton was Archie's first offer for the class of 2020, no? Hard to read this as anything but a gut punch, should he commit to Purdue. But it's still just one player.
  12. If he's serious about going somewhere he can trust 100%, one would think that would have to rule out Alabama and LSU, no?
  13. The big question seems to be whether Watford is going to visit or not. There hasn't been any real confirmation of that rumor. If he is going to visit, then he clearly has interest at this stage. If he doesn't visit, then he doesn't have much interest. It's as simple as that.
  14. According to the 247 recruiting class caluclator, not factoring in Brunk that class would currently be ranked 7th in the country...
