He's not even a senior in high school yet. We'll see in two years.
Good point -- 6-4 270 is plenty big for a guy who is just beginning the summer after his junior year of high school. He's a full year away from arriving on campus.

uuuhhhhggg..."If I stick with Syracuse, I'll be in a good place"
So right. I respect the young man's right to change his mind but why verbally commit and say something like that. Let's hope we can hold off poachers.

Not the best portent, but at least his parents were with him and perhaps bolstered the decision. I'm just looking for anything now that will prevent a wandering eye. I mean we "discover" this hidden gem, we should be the ones to polish him.
It's funny, when he announced his committment many of us were underwhelmed (no P5 offers). Now it's all we can do to keep him.
I think he stays. We'll see.

It's the recruitment of teenagers. Sometimes they stay committed sometimes they don't. This is part of the coaches job to stave off the siren song of other programs. A winning season will help.

Many of us were not underwhelmed

Just absolutely devastating news. Red's Father collapsed before his game and passed away.

EDIT: Not at the Dome
