I went to HS with Dedrick Finn who went to Xavier with David West and was a top 100 player and is the only one near my age that I can remember being a top 100 player.

I was talking recently.  Matt Kiefer went to PU.  He was top 100 I think.

Jaquan Lyle from Evansville bosse was a 5 star in like every recruiting service.. had a lot of off court issues.. ended up playing one year at Ohio state and then got arrested. He was a senior In HS I think in 2013.

Thanks.  Interesting list.   Two out of the top three from Wisconsin.  That’s something.  I’m sure Coach K, Self, and Aw Shucks are going to  circle those two.

Better than Blackmon?

You talking about Jalen correct? Don’t know him very well but if Jalen is a 2 guard they should be able to play together because from my knowledge Lander is a PG. his game right now kinda reminds me of D.J. Carton. Left handed like him to. Still pretty young and  his development has a long ways to go but he could turn into something special.

Love those pics in front of the court. Genius social media work

I really like those as well. Franklin used that photo as commit shot too. I think seeing them in uniform. Getting a photo...and seeing the immediate reaction on social media is huge. I mean Franklin's commit photo has over 7k likes.

Fran won’t quit. 

 

I think he just goes around following Archie to find out who is good and then just hopes to get a few of the left over scraps lol.

I’ll get to quite a few of his games this season. I’ll let you guys know how it it’s going.

I hope we can land him.  There's a guy on the rivals site who says that he's grown up a huge UM fan and that they are the clear frontrunner.  I have no idea if that's true or not.

I think when some of these kids see what Romeo does at IU...they will have a new program to look up to.

Handles and quickness are clearly great. 

Two concerns in translating to the college game:

1.) Height on shot. I’m assuming this kid is ~6’0”. He doesn’t elevate to shoot and his body angles a bit forward. He’ll just need to get a little more vertical in general. 

2.) Quickness of release. On nearly all the set shots he took, he showed a lengthy ball fake before shooting, that doesn’t give any indication as to the quickness of his release. It’s a point of concern.

But, that’s why you come to play at the next level. Hone the skills and improve.
