Speaking of hoping, I was hoping we could get Ben Simmons to go to HS in Louisiana. I am worried with him playing with other 5 stars. There's gonna be a college coach at every one of his games there... Will be tough, but I hope we can hold onto him.
Being a top 5 ranked five star there would be coaches at a lot of his games whether he plays in La, Florida, Australia, or the moon. It would have been nice to see him at Riverside or Madison Prep of course, but the reality is we will have recruit against the high majors if we want him.
Look on the bright side, he will face elite competition regularly, allows us to visit more frequently, and if we can land him he may attract other top flight talent.
