What school does the kid go to?



Tioga. Real tiny town north of Alexandria. He's a player that will be a project if they take him on. He's made some major improvements over the last year and he may come into play now that Victor is off the board.

The coldest I've ever been in my entire life was deer hunting in Tullos after Christmas one year. I didn't feel my feet for 3 days. What school does the kid go to?


Haha I can relate to the deer hunting part in that area. If he was from Tullos he would go to Winnfield or Lasalle, chances are the Tullos is a misprint with him actually being from Ball or Tioga. There was a article in the town talk earlier this year, looks like a project still growing into his body. LINK

Sorry if this has been posted already but I didn't see it anywhere. Looks like Dante Exum was just a pipe dream and I was smoking it with everyone else. Our Australian connection just wasn't enough. The kid is too good. Sounds to me like he might not play any college at all.

LINK

Exum, who turns 19 on July 13, told ESPN that he remains 50-50 on whether to bypass college and go to the NBA.

Exum also disclosed his five finalists to ESPN -- Indiana, North Carolina, Kentucky, Michigan and Oregon -- if he chooses to attend college. He said he plans to take visits to the schools after he graduates from high school.

Its never been a question of Aaron growing into his body. He's been big. It was all refining his skills. We played em last year and in both games he played really well, one of the few big men in the state and last I saw he was working on his jumpshot, he hit a couple 3s on us last year and they took us to the brink at home. They should be top 3 in 4A with STM and Peabody come the season. He, Cobb and Ramirez are all really good, tough team with a really great up and coming coach.

Mom says Kentucky is interested in Louisiana point guard Dominic Magee
Aug. 29, 2013
Written by Steve Jones

The University of Kentucky basketball team’s recruiting radar for point guards in the Class of 2014 extended this week to four-star Harvey, La., prospect Dominic Magee, who immediately put UK in his top five college options.

Magee’s mother, Brenda Turner, said her son doesn’t yet have a scholarship offer from UK and the family hasn’t spoken with head coach John Calipari. Assistant Kenny Payne has spoken with Magee’s father and AAU coach to explain the Cats’ interest and how UK operates. Magee, ranked as the No. 66 senior and the No. 15 point guard by 247Sports.com, is also considering Memphis, LSU, Oklahoma State and Kansas State. Rivals.com gives him three stars.

Magee is a 6-foot-3, 175-pound player for Helen Cox High School, which also produced former five-star recruit and current Detroit Pistons player Greg Monroe.

Magee’s mother thinks her son is talented enough to play at UK.

“Believe me, if we felt like Kentucky was too big that our son couldn’t go there and produce or go there and make it, we would have shut the conversation down,” she said. “But we believe our son has that ability and could be that kid who could be one and done. He has that ability, yes.”

Magee sent out a tweet on Wednesday that he had an offer from UK after, his mom explained, the family had assumed, based on their dealings with other programs, that an initial call such as the one they got from Payne qualified as an offer. Turner said Payne clarified that at UK only Calipari issues the offers, and she said they’d wait to hear from him “down the line,” possibly this weekend or next week.

“(Payne) said their process is totally different than other colleges, and they will be contacting us at a later time to discuss exactly what was going on,” Turner said. “Me and my husband’s feel on that is that they are interested, but they have not yet offered.”

Magee has set up official visits to his other four finalists, his mother said, Memphis next week, LSU on Sept. 14, Oklahoma State on Oct. 18 and Kansas State on Oct. 25.

That's pretty much how I thought the situation was. Will be interesting to see how it plays out.

2014 PF Aaron Epps has LSU in his top 5 and is scheduled to visit next month.


Back when I lived in Pineville I lived across the street from Aaron and his brother EJ. Used to school those kids in hoops. I doubt I'd be able to now.

@TheRecruitScoop: Mark Vital is a strong addition early on for the Baylor Bears. They were the first to offer the 2016 athletic scoring wing from Louisiana.

I doubt this one is over. Over 3 years until he can sign.

At least this kid is from Louisiana, so if he decommits from Baylor, Drew can't try to have him deported.
