    So here's my best impression of IU and UConn's recruiting style lately. They certainly play the 'numbers' game. :)

    Instead of hoping for a pair of GA kids to take pity on SU and come up north to play savior. How about we finally show some love to cats like this who are wide open and would be interested.

    I agree I think this kid would be a great option at this point. I would be calling him up if I was the staff and putting on the full court press.

    A shorter list would be the guys they haven't offered.

    "He was looking for a place called Lee Ho Fooks (uh, Fultz)
    Going to get a big dish of beef chow mein"

    Amazing band on that track...Waddy Wachtel on guitar, John McVie on bass and Mick Fleetwood on drums. Zevon is criminally underrated. Arguably one of the top 3 omissions from the Rock Hall of Shame.

    Latest mix of Fultz from the Under Armour event this past weekend. He actually went head to head against Trevon Duval and led his team to an OT win.

    We too late here even if we would show interest?

    Ohio St just offered a few weeks ago and he's already interested in visiting there. I think he would consider us if we started to show some interest but who knows if we ever will show him any love.

    Thanks Francis.

    Fultz, Duval, Murray, Gilbert, Lonnie Wilson - all guards with well developed offensive skill sets (good shooters, handle, and can get to the rim). Give me 1 or 2 of these guys.

    I really think we missed the boat here. I really like this kids game. I will probably be in the minority here but I like his game a lot more than Huerter.

    Our buddy Jerry bumped Fultz up to a five star ranked 20th one spot ahead of Moyer now.

    I think he had him at 34 previously. I expect Rivals and Scouthoops to add him into the five star club as well once they update their rankings next month.

    That is great. But, it doesn't look like we are going to get involved with him, right? He is a pure 2G?

    He's a combo that wants to run PG in college. Staff missing the boat big time by not at least recruiting him. Not sure if he's better than Simmons but definitely better than the other options we're looking at.
