    Giving a Rautins family member a scholarship hasn't been a bad move yet. I'd love to land Sam.

    The kid has textbook form. Hope he reaches 6'6".

    He doesn't get a lot of lift on his release. He has a smooth stroke, but it looks to me just a bit like he's aiming it as he shoots. Just a bit mechanical, but he's still young.

    I can't think of a single reason not to offer the kid & wrap him up early.

    I wonder if this has something to do with the 13-year Canadian scholastic cycle.

    Still listed as 2018 on most recruiting sites. He is all in for 'Cuse (fam and fan), so we'll really have to mess this one up to miss on Sam. Kid can really stroke it.

    Was good friends with Buddy when they lived in Dewitt. Imagine that JD team with the 2 of them if he was still living here.

    Is young Rautins a legit recruiting target? Does he look like a possible P5 player?

    Close him! ;)

    Or is he like that other Canadian dude who is all in for Cuse, but whom we haven't offered?(Remembering names isnt my strong point, like when I ticked off a member by not knowing some announcer's name earlier this season, so I hope no one finds that description overly offensive)

    Plays a lot like Andy. But noticed some differences. Sam doesnt have as quick of a release and requires more space to get shot off. But im sure if you look at both their high school tapes they are identicle

    I meant dude playing in Canada, didn't realize we'd offered him(I havent checked in here much during this season, it was kind of depressing), and it turns out that hours after mentioning him, the Cuse closed him! Weird coincidence. Either way, I'm going to pat myself on the back and take a bow, because...well, I think it would feel nice. We need something to feel nice around now, right?

    Anyhow, for now, I am liking this Canadian pipeline. I hope Sam can do his name proud!

    Hopefully this doesn't end up one of the most quoted posts on this site

    Have you had much chance to watch him play in person? Is he going to be good enough to play at Syracuse?

    I've seen him play a few times. It's hard to say if he's going to be good enough. He certainly not good enough right now, but I'm not ready to lean in either direction regarding his long term future. Andy was a late bloomer and same could happen with Sam. Was looking forward to seeing how he handled the talent in the EYBL. So far he's found very few ways to contribute beyond shooting the ball, which he hasn't done well either.

    Some had asked about young Rautins of late. Sam hasn't done much for CIA in the EYBL this spring/summer. Here are his HS highlights from this past season...

    Read the Buddy Boeheim article on Syracuse.com from today -- Sam Rautins is mentioned.

    He looks like a mid major player at best. I could see him doing well for an Ivy or team like Canisus.
