    What are we waiting for? Offer him a scholarship. As someone else previously suggested, if he doesn't pan out, recruit over him the following year.

    Can't measure heart. I feel like this is the kind of kid that really wants to play at Syracuse and will work his ass off to make sure he does well.

    Offer the kid, no one thinks he is Pearl or Sherm(then again no one thought Sherm would be Sherm) but he could turn out to be a solid 4 year kid.

    There has to be something going on here or else our arrogance is unreal. Since when are we good enough to dismiss a kid who wants to come here with programs who are experiencing success.

    I was in the boat to not take the kid...but like state above, you can't teach heart and seems like he has it. He'll make it work, especially the promise he made to his grandma. Take him, 5th guard transfer and hopefully Howard or Ayala will be here to be the combo.

    I think we want Ayala and Duarte first as they are higher upside...

    We also wanted Green and look what happened. I get it. It's not that simple. Just would hate to lose out on Washington if Ayala or Duarte don't come here.

    Still holding out hope that Isaiah Washington somehow becomes available

    I get that but it hasn't been working and we are certainly not in a position to be choosy. Sadly, beggars can't be choosers. Let's get a kid who wants to be here, has legit offers, is in our recruiting wheelhouse.

    I'm not up on recruiting as the rest of you, I would like to ask, with so many scholarships available does that make it easier for a player not to verbal?

    Nice PS article about this recruit. In light of his recent play [reported on in depth by Francis / Iommi], I hope that this kid lands an offer.

    At minimum, I could see him as a four year program guy who provides supplemental backcourt depth. And if he pans out--disco. If not, we can recruit over him in 2018.

    But we've lacked PG depth since the 2012 seasons [5 straight years], and we've had a new starting PG each of those five years. Time to build some appropriate backcourt depth.

    Also, I don't believe that this kid would scare off either Ayala or Duarte. There's room for all three.

    This this this this this. Though he may not be what we want it's what we need. Then if we snag Ayala or Duarte it's gravy

    In the past PS has ran stories on kids just before an offer comes.
