    That'd be a good look for the top French league considering he's a consensus top 5 pick in every 2018 mock draft

    The brother thought he was going to become a sports agent and MO was going to be his client. You can't fix stupid.

    Looks like the Greer figure has been a mentor and part of Bamba's life since he was a kid/before he was a prospect. I think the NCAA already looked into him and cleared the relationship and his providing Bamba with stuff, because of the pre-existing relationship, might not even be considered an infraction.

    Who knows all the details or what else emerges but I doubt this affects Bamba's eligibility. Seems like a terribly dumb play by a butthurt brother

    I'm a day late and a dollar short on both news and general recruiting knowledge, but bear with me:

    - This kid was a great fit for SU but he's allegedly a real smart guy so he cooled on us
    - People thought Harvard was a real possibility and Duke was an even more likely choice
    - He picked a state school in Texas, one that lost like 20 games this year?

    That's...odd.

    Yeah...which is crazy. A big man that can block shots looks really good in the middle of the 2-3. Really, they should be lining up!

    P.S. We would like to thank Mr. Love for his generous donation to the NCAA 's Go Fund Me page to aid in the construction of new homes for the NCAA's investigating administration.

    If he had signed with Syracuse, the answer would've been different... just saying... :)

    Amazing how quickly the NCAA resolved his case. Certainly has not been the case when SU recruits are in question.

    To derisively call UT a "state school" as compared to SU is ignorant as to the standing of each.
