    Spent his first three years at St. Rays but like teammate Sid Wilson, he's also heading to Brewster next season. Red has kept tabs on him for years and now Washington is adding SU on his main list. I was never blown away by him during the last HS season, but he has really stepped it up and is playing very well during the spring/summer circuit.

    Solid backup PG plan and would like him even if we land one of our higher rated recruits at the position. Lots of openings next year and he could be a great four year program type player. Seems to have very solid lead guard skills.

    Absolutely. Meant "backup" in terms of who we're prioritizing in recruiting this year at the PG position. But obviously that all means pretty much nothing once they get on campus.

    I was just trying to say it is important to keep recruiting kids that might be around for a few years.
    I like your posts.

    Jelly Fam and Alvarado would jump on an offer from SU more so than Matt Coleman. So it's important for the staff to decide who is the better fit.

    Do you have a preference (for Cuse)? And is it close either way?

    PG's in this class like Coleman, Alvarado, and Washington are pretty much on the same level to me. So any would be a good get imho.

    Syracuse is his "dream school," according to a two for se7en article recently posted that I cannot link to.

    How many times have we heard that and they go elsewhere.

    Haha was thinking the same. It's almost a kiss of death.

    Last person from Rays to say the same thing about Cuse being his "dream school."

    His jersey is in the rafters at the PNC Center. Yet every time I look at it all I see is a Syracuse National Championship. Weird maybe, but it makes me smile.

    His game reminds me a little bit of Kyle Lowry, just has to get stronger also maybe a little Howard Eisley.
