    That Jazz would sound real nice next to Mathew Moyer.

    Love this kid's game. He has that quirky... kinda herky-jerky game that often gives opponents fits. Hard to defend.

    A bit lanky for aPF but is proficient from beyond the arc and seems to handle the ball well. Watching his video its hard to say if he is strong on the boards which for his position is critical. It would make the fans here more comfortable if Hop can bring him in. My feeling about Hop is that we don't skip a beat on recruiting with Hop Red and GMAC out on the trail of top talent to continue the Orange power ranking nationally. I think his youth along with his assistants will do well.

    Looks like he has no right hand and is still getting used to his body. I really liked his combination of skills and isolation game. Great follow through on the shot and that one running jumper near the end of the highlight was something that cannot be taught and takes a real feel for the game. I can see why we offered and I expect to see the staff keeping tabs on him.

    Loved seeing that. As an awkward lefty, having that post up game is key in that it becomes harder to defens, IMO. Hope we land this kid.

    I have a random question that's kind of off topic but, does anyone have an idea of who will be an assistant after JB retires? I know we have Hop, Autry and GMac so who will be the other assistant or who would be most qualified?

    Allen Griffin has a lot of experience coaching at the college level and I know he is close with Hop.

    That being said, it would be good to bring in someone who had experience coaching bigs, as Hop does that now and would presumably not do it once he becomes the HC.

    Guy makes every three pointer from the corner and misses all the other ones I don't think I have ever seen that before.

    Have we offered him?

    Zagoria said today that we haven't.

    Down to Kansas, Georgetown, Seton Hall, and TCU. What ever happened to our interest here?

    I would like to see some non-orange in the mix.

    There was never much interest to begin with. His overall game hasn't progressed much at this point and he's basically a one dimensional long range gunner. Hardly got any minutes towards the end of last season for Roselle Catholic, which I thought was very strange.

    The bag of money emoji is probably a poor choice.

    Kid has to be receptive, otherwise don't waste your time. Too many prospects out there. That's why our offers are valuable. We tend not to give them out lightly. Check out how many offers some of the other schools have out there. We show commitment to the player, but I'm sure there comes a time to close, and our back-up choices are beginning to choose other schools, so it's "go" time.

    It's too bad Rutgers isn't on this list. I would love to see their fan base (all 50 of them) explode when he announces for another school beside's them.

    They'd say "he didn't have a commitable offer" from SUNJ, they didn't really want him anyway. :rolleyes:
