    He looks like someone whose talents would best be utilized playing for an ND or Michigan.

    The key to recruiting needs to change. Our first q should be whether a dude can play. Not does he have a certain physique.

    hmmm...

    pearl, bouie and wallace have to be on there. billy owens and DC the other 2? or Melo over DC? But i believe i remember JB saying it wasn't until Melo got to campus surprisingly 25-30 lbs heavier/stronger than anticipated that he got really excited.

    I completely understand. I played at BL. While I admit private schools have a built-in advantage where kids can choose to transfer there, it also bothers me when BL gets accused to recruiting. I have no idea about CBA, but I know for a fact that isn't the case at BL.

    Still, that's a nice stat line.

    I've seen buddy play a number of times. He is a very good high school player. JD is not that strong overall and there is no comparison to the teams 10 years ago that were winning state titles. I personally don't think he has the athletic ability to play at high majors but I am rooting for the kid because I love his demeanor on the court...just always seems to be smiling and having fun with his teammates.
