[quote]Nah. But it'd be nice to finally beat them. I'm just glad they don't have that huge, goofy white center that dominated us.[/quote] That bastuhd. Saw him playing in Summer League and immediately recognized him. Looks like he's still in peak physical condition. He looks like one of those guy...

[quote]I disagree and the reason I say I disagree because we didn't really know who he was going after. He wouldn't put any info out.[/quote] No coach puts out that info, nor can they. Social media does, and they did put out a lot of info on who Grant was after as well. [quote]I mean all of th...

Yes. Especially for the first 4 years. You'll see a lot of people complaining about Grant not going hard after the super talented players, but that's complete horse shite. In fact, you could say that was his downfall at Alabama. He went so hard after premium recruits only to place 2nd and miss out on ...

Yea, that figures. Many kids taller than 6'8" at that age lack a lot of coordination. He says he's 7'3" now, so hopefully he'll actually stop growing so his coordination can catch up. He's supposedly a great shooter with range to the 3 which is damn impressive at that height and that age. I imagine ...

Sounds like we're sitting pretty with Heron. I'm interested to see where we are with Ferguson. Haven't heard much from him since the 247 article saying that our coach's visit was the best of the string he had in April or May....

re: Alabama Basketball: 2015 Recruiting - BigBird09
If we get a tourney invite, I'll be pleasantly surprised. We lost our 3 leading scorers from a borderline NIT team. It would be a very impressive coaching job and would require a lot of players to step their game up. I think we'll be a tourney team in 2016-17 though....

[quote]He is 6'10 lol. He probably didn't play against nobody ever that size in high school. I think he will be really good eventually but I think he is going to have to get use to banging down low.

[quote]Hall wont be our best big that's for sure. He is more of an athletic big. I know its probably new to him learning how to box out because he wondered around the perimeter a lot in high school. [/quote] For someone who wondered out to the perimeter he had a massive amount of rebounds. Boxin...

[quote]he's the most efficient in the paint[/quote] Agreed, and the numbers back it, but an efficient scorer doesn't mean they're a go-to scorer. Look at NBA bigs like Tyson Chandler and Deandre Jordan. They shoot 65+ FG% and 70+ FG% respectively, but they're FAR from being go-to scorers. [quote]...

re: Alabama Basketball: 2015 Recruiting - BigBird09
[quote]no way. i like Kessens as a passer, but he gets destroyed by good competition. he needs to work on his baseline jumper because he gets in trouble when he tries to bang. Taylor is much better in the paint. If his game develops he could be our go to guy down low. Hale and Taylor both need a lot...
