    That would be great if we get a commitment from Briscoe this summer. He's going to be a special player and it will help get the ball rolling for other elite guys who know we have strong players coming on board. Also, if he commits this summer it sounds like a commitment from Ennis wouldn't be too far behind him.

    For the record, if he comes to SU there's a 100% chance I refer to him solely as Detective Briscoe. There's also a 95% chance I refer to him as Detective Briscoe if he goes anywhere else, too.

    I've heard both are pretty much 100% ours. Hope that's the case.

    Would be funny to have a 2015 commit before a 2013 or 2014 commit

    Lenny was the best. I'm sure this kid would have no idea who you were talking about. It all sounds good, but hopefully we start hearing some things more concrete.

    “It’s not my dream school,” he told SNY.tv at the Mary Kline Classic. “I just lean towards it because of my sister.”

    I'm going to call him "El" Briscoe, just because.

    I know. I'm just reporting what he told me. He said he did not say he was leaning towards Syracuse. Take from it what you will. My guess is he probably said "I just lean towards it because of my sister" but didn't actually mean he's leaning towards Syracuse to go to school there. Probably just a miscommunication.

    Didn't mean to dispute you're article. Was just a confusing statement.

    Oh I didn't take it as you disputing it. I was confused as well. I clarified with him about 5 times just to make sure. I'm still confused by the whole thing.

    Bottom line, from the outside, Syracuse appears to be the favorite, and are recruiting him the hardest. Considering he's here a lot to see his sister, spends time with the players, and the coaches are recruiting him hard, it look goods for Syracuse.

    If you show too much interest in a particular school, especially this early, the offers may stop coming. He's just trying to maximize the interest in his services.

    And probably being thorough. Obviously, we'd love to land a prospect of Briscoe's caliber [and we have solid in-roads there], but I don't have a problem with a freshman wanting to take his time and deliberate on his eventual college choice. Plus, there are lots of examples of kids committing very early as frosh / sophs, only to change their mind later on.

    [Matt, I know none of that ties to your post--just building upon what you said].

    They've only got so much room under the salary cap.

    That is another thought ,too good to be true or a real possibility in happening. Lets get one here and then worry about the other. This kind of news should spur MCW to get himseslf ready to take over the position in a big way this coming season.

    I know it's when Dion committed, but Sometimes I think it's had to extrapolate a rising Sophmore, because of kids developing late and such.

    Disclaimer: I have not seen Briscoe County Jr play, and I know our staff knows how to eval talent.

    I kind of disagree, I really like it when the staff gets an early commit.

    They seem to have a good eye and are good evaluators of potential. It can impress the kid. And then after the commit they can help him develop. MCW comes to mind. I think they had it right with Tyler and wanted him but just couldn't quite close the deal early. Also when it goes late, it seems like the odds drop for SU.
