basketball: 6'11" Thon Maker class of 2016
I know he's young, but kids already 6"11 and is stil l growing, got lots of potential. Trent needs to get on this kid early. #1 player in australia in his class and is supposed to be moving to new orleans around Christmas time.

ETA: enrolled at Country Day but will sit out this year to get caught up academic wise. he's practicing with the team throughout the entire year though.

Trent won't be the head coach at LSU in 2016 unless he really pulls his shite together. Anything less than 8-8 in the league and he needs to be shown the door this season.

I agree with this, but we have seen a turn in Trent's recruiting as of late with his last three or four signees and commitments. Maybe we'll start seeing the dividends pay off on the court within the next year or two.

Khalia also tried to go to Country Day, but he couldn't get in academic wise.

So instead of Ludwig being a strap-on signee to get Derenbecker, they were both actually to sign this kid.

Trent Johnson, Brilliant!!!

Like I said, he's young, but if he's already reaching 7 feet tall and has got some moves, you gotta look into this kid if you're Trent.

Parents want him to play college ball in the states, not sure why NOLA though.
