Yawn, such a tired take....Who cares about Sportscenter or even watches it anymore?  By the way, Cody starts at center averaging 12 and 8.

 

Cody is very under-rated. I tell you he came into the nba 10-15 years earlier he would be a focal point of an offense. Different era nowadays that under utilize bigs.

He just needs to be with a better team and organization. Hornets have been a mess for years.

Quite the honor....as you mentioned when you say only the 5th junior ever in this state it really does mean something and 4.0 GPA in the grades department. Exactly what we want.

Edit-...who are the others besides Oden, Edwards...

Zeller is a really, really solid NBA center. He does almost everything you'd want from a center in 2020. He runs the floor extremely well, he's athletic, he can defend the perimeter well on switches, he's got good hands/finishing on the pick and roll, etc., etc. The only thing really holding him back from being an even better player, and it's been his bugaboo since even at IU, is his inability to develop a reliable mid-range to 3-pt jumper. 

If he could reliable knock down mid-range jumpers and then eventually extend his range, he'd be a legit 15/16ppg and 8rpg center. In this day and age that's almost a borderline allstar at the center position. Even going back to college, and not to rehash this, but how different is that Sweet Sixteen Syracuse game if Zeller was a threat to shoot the foul line jumper? Remember how many times he got the ball wide open at the foul line but instead of shooting he barreled into the defense and either got a charge or got his shot blocked.

Here's what I got. Think these are the answers. Edwards, Bailey, Jason Gardner, Oden....and now Kaufman. Hopefully someone can confirm.

honestly the more scouts see you play more often then not they see less and less potential. Most of the time it’s the potential that get these kids drafted and if they wait then the warts look bigger and the potential starts become reality (bad or good).

I somewhat agree with this statement if you are a fraud player!  By all means go get paid but in reality you are not a good basketball player & got by this far on pure athleticism w/ no real basketball talent!  You would rather spend 1-3 yrs for an Org to try and develop what you been missing from the start, Talent!  By all means, go get that bench $$ that will be there when you turn 22!  Go ahead & ignore the fact that an additional 2-3 yrs of becoming a man can actually enhance your game & get more $$ in the long run but I’m glad you made it!

AAU travel circuit will be reduced if not cancelled. (Un)official visits also put on hold. Do you believe this helps IUs chances with Kaufman, hurts, or no difference?

Im in the camp who believe that recruits are now forced to rely almost exclusively on the relationships built with the coaches to dictate their eventual school choice. I like my chances with Arch and Ostrom

Doesn't hurt at all. He has been on campus about 10 times over the last two seasons. Not much doubt in my mind. Never was. Not close to the situation, but do live in this area about 6 miles from his school and IU is all that I have been hearing.

After Furst committed is when I started seeing Purdue was in the lead. They apparently only didn't want to play together at IU. Now that IU has landed Lander, that's the one Kaufman won't play with.

I think it’s been a pretty common theme that Furst and Kaufman weren’t likely to play together regardless of which school. The whole Lander/Kaufman thing was started by Brian Snow iirc.
