    The "mutual" thing is interesting. I don't see why it would be mutual unless cuse coaches had a REALLY good idea they had their pg. It's not like saving face would be necessary... nobody gets every recruit. So in that sense it seems to point to good news about Green. But... it definitely removes the safety net if Green doesn't go our way.

    Very intriguing...I'd like to think it means we are pretty solid with Q.

    And maybe, just maybe, " IF" we don't get Green. I think JB would go open the door with IW. Isaiah Washington.

    Hasn't signed a LOI. But this is strictly an "if" scenario that, barring disaster, will never become reality.

    I think this is a strong indication that Green has given us the green light on being Orange. Coleman will be a fine player but I did notice an over reliance on his left hand and although he is left handed he will need to do some work on his right hand and becoming better at going to his left when he makes his break around defenders. I think he would do himself well to go to UT. Best of luck to him.

    All have to agree that a silent commitment makes little sense though. The sooner it becomes public, the sooner Syracuse can make serious headway in assembling a top notch team around Quade. That effort is in the best interests of both parties.

    Because it's not public (assuming he is going to SU) doesn't mean he hasn't told those he wants to team with that he his going to SU.

    I agree that this could be the case. I sure hope it is as I was expecting him to commit already. Coleman cancelling his visit to SU certainly could be a good sign. Right now I'm still feeling very good about the 2017 class. If things go past Orange Madness and we don't have two or three commits I may start to worry.

    This is true, but as I said it makes little sense at best. I'm just not sure what the positives are of not making it public.

    Except that he very likely wants to enjoy the rest of his visits. It's hard to convince Cal to let you go to Big Blue Madness when you've already committed to Syracuse.

    Exactly. Which doesn't sound like fully committed in my book. I guess the most comforting analogy is that he is engaged to us but going to go on an epic stripper fueled bachelor party? Probably ok but fiancé still not too thrilled about it.

    The kid wanted to take his trips. He will have stories to tell his children. I think that's why the Oak Hill kid suddenly emerged, because Quade probably gave us the silent verbal. That would explain Randolph's recent visit with his family members, and Bamba coming up here, too. Trying to play the chip of his commitment on the down low so QG can have some fun.

    I have to admit, I do like this theory. And I have been wondering where this Preston kid came from. But do we even know if Billy and Quade know each other? I know Dean was saying that we were strictly just a name drop with Billy Preston, but I still wonder if there might be a little bit more to the story.

    IMO our interest in Preston is more about us not being sure we will land Richards or Bamba. Preston's sudden interest in SU? I have no idea where that came from and I do not recall any connections between him and Green.

    I think Preston took a look at SU while we were recruiting his teammate, the PG.
