    His father played for Beilein at LeMoyne and has remained close. Long way away but I would guess Michigan is the early favorite because of that.

    Of course it's a guess but that's why I said if we can be in his top two or three. This kid has a long way to go before he steps on a college campus so lots of things can happen.

    He has some nice range too, what's impressive is that his form barely changes when he takes those deep shots. That speaks highly to his strength and mechanics.

    Apparently plays himself some football as well.

    "Glens Falls junior running back Aaron Sampson missed Friday's game with an injury and sophomore Joseph Girard III started at quarterback with senior Josh Griffen shifting from quarterback to fullback.

    Girard threw for 194 yards and three touchdowns, plus added a four-yard TD run and an interception on defense."

    Yeah, I saw that on twitter feeds last night. Sounds like a winner to me.

    He's much more than a shooter too.

    Glen's Falls is headed to the State championship and will be playing in the Carrier Down next weekend. Girard is the QB.

    Greg Paulus the second. The kid is obviously quite an athlete. Like Paulus, he will probably be recruited more heavily for hoops, but could probably play football in the right situation.

    Let's hope it's not here as a 5th year grad transfer.

    Is there any serious interest from SU up to this point?

    He's not a D1 football player. (at least not yet.) He may or may not be a high major hoops player but I think he has the potential to be one. I can see his trajectory being on par with Gerry Mac and I believe he's better than Jimmer Fredette at the same stage. Will he be better, IDK, but the kid can sure shoot it and score points. I feel like he needs to be a couple of inches taller though but maybe not.

    Verbal Commits

    GW, U Albany and High Point so far for his list of D1 offers.

    I was talking to a guy from the Capital District over the holiday who is involved with high school sports. He said pretty much the same thing you are saying: a taller version of GMAC and a better athlete (and defender) than Jimmer. He's listed at 6'2" but according to this guy he's a shade over 6' tall but still growing.

    he's definitely not > 6-1 . I'd put him at 5-10 / 5-11 but that was last year. I haven't seen him since spring. He's only a sophomore though and still growing.
