You still think Craig is overrated? He's blowing up (like last summer) the AAU national circuit this summer. From speaking with his father this morning, he said that he thinks the mental part of the game is now catching up with his physical abilities. I'm looking forward to him dominating LA basketball this fall

In. It's good to see that Louisiana is producing talent again. It reminds me of 2005-2008

Reginald Johnson is a great high school basketball player. He has no shot at playing at LSU.

Guy with the last named Roby just makes too much sense for south Louisiana. Good offer list at this stage to only be a 3-star.

Looney's team was playing Texas prospect Emmanuel Mudiay's team, so I wonder which player LSU was actually checking out. Both are studs. I also wonder which coach it was.

ETA: I do know that Robert Kirby was on Looney at Georgetown, and the Hoyas are still players for him.
