    FWIW I have heard Malik will likely head to prep school next year

    Makes sense, last year was kind of a lost season for him. Malik is playing great and another year at prep school will help get more exposure.

    Local kid. Looks really good. Need point production. Kid can shoot and score. Where's the offer. I know, wait until Prep school and see who else offers? Keep these kids home. Sorry but I am getting discouraged with the recruiting as, apparently, everyone else is.

    A. He won't leave us after two years.
    B. His recruitment probably won't be a circus.
    C. He won't ditch last second for Kentucky/Kansas/Zona

    We have a status quo for offering guards man, gotta follow it.

    The offer hasn't been given yet because, until recently he wasn't a possible P5 type of player, and I think the jury is still out if he is. He's gotten better, but I haven't seen much of him to say he's at the level we need yet.

    Sooooooo you are saying we should just start offering kids that might not have the talent to play in the ACC because we won't lose them to another program that way?

    That's a good way to turn into a A10 program.

    And just an FYI this kid isn't the best PG in in the syracuse area in the 2018 class. He's not high ACC caliber talent right now.

    this kids a clear d1 talent point guard who just needs to add some muscle. We've whiffed on all, all, of the big prospects when competing against the bigger programs. The few times we didn't whiff, those prospects left after a year. We have the scholarships, I don't see why you don't take a local talent who will be a contributor in his 4 years here. Especially with the continuing lack of guard depth.

    No disrespect toward Zachery--have never seen him play, and have no judgement on if he's a high major recruit or not--but your first sentence isn't much of an endorsement. "D1 talent point guard" doesn't mean much--there's a huge range there.

    A player could be an Ivy League caliber "D1 talent point guard" -- that wouldn't make them suitable for the ACC.
