I think Martin and Jones (I keep thinking of Damien James ) are the 2 bigger targets right now. Both of their upsides is so much higher than Bridgewater's...

This x1000. Damien Jones is a raw talent right now if you ask me. But in all honesty, I could just take Jarell Martin and call it a day. I wouldn't be complaining

Coach D is going to be in for a complete surprise this year now that it looks like Victor's mentality is catching up with his skill level.

We shall see. I do know this. When Jarell left New Orleans Elite, Victor led his team to an 0-4 showing in Indy. :/

Meanwhile, Jarell and Louisiana Elite in their first tournament together won the GASO.

Victor and Jerell were the only elite talent on N.O Elite. It's kind of hard to win these national tournaments if you don't have to same quality firepower to matchup with these national teams. Just b/c you don't see N.O Elite winning doesn't mean Victor isn't flexing his muscle on the national stage.

Being that I know what type of "firepower" a team that did much better has, would disagree. Didn't say win it, just saying they didn't even win a game!

All good, know it seems like I am hating on Craig but I am not. Kid is uber-talented, no doubt about it. Just haven't seen him dominate like a top 25 talent should. Said same thing about Jarell til I saw it over and over this summer. Craig just isn't there yet and to his defense this will only be his junior year. He still has time. Top 100 maybe but he isn't Top 25 until he starts dominating. He will start to fall if he doesn't put it together like Bridge has and others.

I thought Coach D was hating at first, but he is just bringing an unbiased/professional opinion... I believe Victor is finally coming around after a sluggish soph season, compared to how dominant he was out the gate as a frosh... He is competing against the best, so it's time for him to earn them rankings... Like HTF stated though, he'll be up for the challenge... No other choice but to be now..

Forgive my ignorance & lack of free time to do a search, but is David Taylor (Derrick's boy - PG) a 2013 or 2014 & what is his status w/ LSU?

I agree. He's not the best player on his team.

In the next round of games I was very impressed with 6’9” Power Forward LaDamean Keys from Marcrowe MSM4L. The 2014 prospect is a great athlete with crazy long arms. Keys is a good defender, but still developing on the offensive end. The upside on this guy is threw the roof.

I saw that and almost commented on it. However, if I commented on all the bad grammer and misused words that I see on recruiting sites, that would be my full-time job.
