    He will go high level somewhere. If he doesn't get a Cuse offer it's a shame. Whether he says yes to it or not is an entirely different topic.

    I didn't say Jimmer has anything to do with Girard. I said they way defenses react to effective shooters on the court, has to do with Girard. What do you mean the staff doesn't recruit based upon hypotheticals? Recruiting, at it's basic form, IS hypothetical. Coaches like JB look at a HS player like Carmelo and think "hypothetically, could this kid score 20ppg in the Big East? Hypothetically, could we turn Mike Gbinije into a PG? Hypothetically, could Chukwu put on 40 lbs and be an effective ACC center in 2-3 years?

    I responded to a query about the level of competition Girard is exposed to. It's not good. What's confusing? Like I said, i dont have a problem with Syracuse offering, but it's not my call. The premier programs, despite the numbers, have not offered. I only suggested that putting up numbers against better comp may help him there.

    I agree with this... but to pacify the masses AND show Joe that he is wanted... he first must be offered. I'm of the opinion this should be a no-brainer. The kid deserves a shot. If he goes elsewhere that can guarantee more PT than so be it... at least we offered. But to not offer would be insane.

    I believe Lydon got the offer after the elite camp right when he was starting at New Hampton so more or less the end of the summer between PP and Hampton.

    Joe Girard with his third straight 50 point game in a win vs Schuylerville in which he becomes the Section II all time leading scorer. Girard has twelve 3 pointers in the game.

    Joseph Girard III drops in 50 on Schuylerville to pass Kobe Lufkin (Argyle) as the all-time leading scorer in Section II history, helping Glens Falls prevail 81-64.

    Girard sets Section II record

    Frustrating to see this kid light it up game after game and JB won't offer him. We need offense and some shooters.

    I understand the athleticism point, but one thing is interesting: if JG were on our roster today, based on the way we're being defended in the ACC, he could stand at the 3pt line and hit threes in street shoes.

    Joe Girard III goes for 59 on Friday night

    I know this goes in the other forum but not everyone reads that. This kid is doing things no one else has ever done. 59 tonight, including 11 threes. Four straight games of 50 or more. We need to get this kid an offer.

    James Allen‏ @TUSidelines 2m2 minutes ago
    5-0, 5-0, off to work he goes: Joseph Girard III scores 50 points or more for the fourth straight game to lead Glens Falls past Broadalbin-Perth 104-71 in Foothills Council play. The junior guard tallied 59 points, upping his career total to 2,741 points.

    Joseph Girard III tops 50 for fourth straight game

    But, but, but, he’s not good for the zone!! :cool:
    If we don’t offer this kid it’s an epic miss. Kid can shoot. We have none that can. Seems like a fit.

    11 threes, he's like a video game! Offer the man. Consistently hits outside shots. I don't care if he's shooting over ants. That's a truckload of points.

    Right. It's not like he is a 7 footer playing with 6 footers. He's scoring these baskets from 20 foot. With someone guarding him.

    I'm all for offering this kid...

    I keep reminding myself that JB has seen him play a lot over the last couple of years and has access to "scouting reports" from a very close source. It will be interesting to see how all this plays out since the dad is on record saying JB told them they “are trying to figure out who they have coming back and sorting out roster spots for 2019 now.”

    We've had great success with City Rocks kids in the past, so we shall see.

    I know that they've pegged Goodine as a point, but couldn't he be a 2?

    Looking more and more like the issue is that they only want to take 2 guards in the class of 2019. We've already landed one, and it looks like they're prioritizing Battle more than Girard for the second spot.

    Goodine can play either guard spot for sure. Right now, he plays more like a 2 but he's developing his lead guard skills.

    Like others, I'm not confident Khalif comes to SU.
