re: Zach Watson. Bright future ahead - macaoidh
With the bat speed he generates at 165 pounds I can't wait to see what he'll be able to do when he's 190 pounds. He could be a Triple Crown threat if he sticks around for his junior year....

Here's the next kid up for Wade, I'm told... - macaoidh
...early last week after he visited the staff thought they had Alstork. Something happened to make him go to Illinois, but they've been working on alternative plans. Tremont Waters is the alternative plan. [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJ_j77pDxic)]Here's his video.[/link] He's a Top ...

re: Indiana Basketball Scout claims Mark Alstork to LSU... - macaoidh
[quote]I don't see Edwards as your staring PG over Mays. Edwards can play PG if needed, but Mays showed some good court vision and ability as the season went on. There's something to work with there. Edwards is more of a shooter than all around PG. With more structure and coaching Mays could be a go...

re: Indiana Basketball Scout claims Mark Alstork to LSU... - macaoidh
[quote]I would suspect his low 2 point FG % is due to him taking a lot of jump shots from 2 instead of layups/dunks. His 3 point percentage is rather good the last 2 seasons at 38.7% and 37.8%. That 38.7% was at almost 6 shots per game volume as well. [/quote] Furthermore, he gets to the foul lin...

re: Indiana Basketball Scout claims Mark Alstork to LSU... - macaoidh
Edwards is your point guard and you'll have Alstork and Sampson at the wings. Mays backs up the point and Rachal and Alexander back up your wings. That's how this would work. Meanwhile, you have a three-man rotation in the post with Reath, Combs and Kiir, with Epps apparently working himsel...

re: Caden Sterns decommits. Flips to Texas - macaoidh
I'm going to be accused of sour grapes here, but I watched him in the state championship game against Edward Ingram's team and I gotta say it - I didn't see an elite recruit at all. He made like one tackle the whole game and his team got clobbered at the line of scrimmage, meaning DeSoto had runners...

re: Wade's Recruiting Class - macaoidh
[quote]In several trial lineups Edwards has been listed as a point guard. Was that his position in junior college? Anyone have contact with coaching staff ... know how they project his role next season?[/quote] He played point guard as a freshman at Northwest Florida, and then he was the 2-guard ...

re: Wade's Recruiting Class - macaoidh
I'm encouraged, because if you go through his Twitter he's had a lot of contact with some pretty significant programs - Pittsburgh, Louisville, Michigan, Michigan State - and it looks like it's coming down to us and Georgetown. You put this guy on the roster and you run out with a lineup that loo...

Alstork is a must. [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xaeGV8YYN3I)]His highlights[/link] Get him and you've replaced Blakeney, and you can go out with Edwards, Alstork and either Sampson (if he'll play defense) or Rachal at the 3, with Mays, Jenkins and either Sampson or Rachal off the ben...

re: Wade's Recruiting Class - macaoidh
Well, you can take a 215-pound kid and make him 230 if your strength program's any good. Ours for basketball hasn't been, but you'd hope Wade changed that with his guy he hired....

[quote]Besides Farmer and Combs, are there any other forwards Wade is probably looking at? Possibly Ahmed Hamdy?[/quote] I don't even know that they're looking at Farmer. It stands to reason that Wade could get Hamdy if he wanted. [link=(http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/player/_/...

re: Wade's Recruiting Class - macaoidh
[quote]It's an interesting discussion, but we don't know if LSU is even interested in Farmer, or vice versa. [/quote] Nope, we don't. Though I would imagine if LSU came calling it wouldn't be a hard sell for Farmer. On top of the opportunity to play at a Power 5 program, there's the fact he'd ...

re: Wade's Recruiting Class - macaoidh
It's a risk. I think you minimize the actual risk through vetting. Wade knows the coaches at Lee; he recruited Hamdy to VCU from there. And Reath and Jenkins played with Farmer, so they can vet him from a teammate's perspective. You minimize the PR risk a little different way. You do that by c...

re: Coach calipari visit J.SMART - macaoidh
The question is does he get a Kentucky offer. If he does, I don't think we can get him. If he doesn't, I think LSU is the favorite. What I heard tonight is he really likes Wade, and he really likes Heiar. If they close the deal and get Chatman in here he has a really good relationship with ...

re: Wade's Recruiting Class - macaoidh
[quote]uote: No way Wade is shitting on his honeymoon by having that video tied to his early tenure. In general I'd be stunned if Farmer got a chance to play anywhere close to a P5 program. So you are saying Ban the Box does not apply to recruiting athletes only to recruiting employees? [/quo...
