    I saw that Malik Zachery made the top 20 game at the Super Soph camp and is listed as a top performer for the camp. Here is a video from the camp of top performers. I read that he is picking up interests from a bunch of major schools. Liked this kids game for awhile now. Very mature player.

    New Super Soph Camp mix of Zachery. He has a good first step getting into the lane and can finish with either hand. I actually thought he was a lefty at first but he's right handed.

    I love the fact that I can open the basketball recruiting page and the top two threads are for players in 2016 and 2017 respectively. It is comforting to know that when it comes down to the end of the recruiting cycle we already have most if all of our 2015s locked up.

    If this kid continues to develop I really like our chances with him, plus he's trained under former SU player Billy Edelin, another plus.

    This was on Twitter of him playing in the men's King of Kings professional summer basketball league in Utica. I think Demerious Nicholas plays in this league among many others. It is him, Brandon Triche, as well as him with Billy Edelin. He looks like he is getting bigger and stronger too.

    Trying to keep up with him and other local kids and just saw this on the internet. I know it's early but anyone know of any other interests or offers yet?

    Well that sure is a broad spectrum of schools - if that's the right way to put it

    I just watched this video from the top 24 camp where I heard Jordan Tucker was at. It appears Malik played really well. Very smart reads with the big guys in this one. I'm really liking the decision making. Would love to see a full list of names at this camp.

    I known these are mostly half-court 2 on 2 drills but this kid looks like he will be the real deal as a PG. Running the show getting guys involved but also being able to get his own. Pretty impressive for his age. I really hope that he is a priority for us in 2017. Have we officially offered him?

    Some good stuff of Zachery here on his latest highlight video. For whatever reason the staff didn't invite him to Midnight Madness to join the other 2017 kids, which I find extremely disappointing since he's in their backyard. Instead of complaining he told me he'll just continue to work as hard as he can to hopefully one day earn that offer from SU. I'm rooting for him.

    That sounds like the type of attitude I love in a player. After hearing that, I am rooting for him as well.

    I'm glad to have you back too, G! I'm guessing you weren't away as long as it seemed to me, but it's good to have you back regardless. Things got a lil tense on occasion on the the basketball side, and I had a feeling when you returned it would restore some degree of order and balance in the universe. ;)

    Yeah, kinda why I left. The "faith" in this team by some folk. :rolleyes:
    Mantonio showed me the light and I miss this place. I knew my hiatus wouldn't last long.
