re: Mitchell Robinson returning to WKU - Gravitiger
Honestly, if he wants to be one-and-done, his best option is to go to Kentucky, "sit out" his "transfer" year, and scrimmage against lottery talent in front of dozens of NBA scouts every day, a la Enis Kanter. Otherwise he's just Hassan Whiteside coming out of Marshall--uber talented and formerly hi...

re: Mitchell Robinson returning to WKU - Gravitiger
My point was there aren't a bunch of Euroleague and CBA teams beating down doors for 18-year-old American kids. It's just not usually an option like you think it is, even for someone like Robinson. The team that Mudiay played for didn't really get anything out of it. Most foreign teams simply don't ...

re: Mitchell Robinson returning to WKU - Gravitiger
The reason you don't see multiple top prospects do it every year is because (a) it's easier to get scouted in America, and (b) despite what many think, most Euroleague and CBA teams simply don't care to spend very limited resources on a raw, often entitled, yet-to-be-famous 18-year-old for one year ...

re: Saban courting Travis Etienne while on his LSU visit - Gravitiger
Yeah, if Saban "sent a car to pick Travis up and bring him" anywhere, that is a violation. Only exception is on an official visit. Also, it is actually a quiet period right now, so any in-person off-campus contact would also be a violation. In other words, BS....

re: Questions for recruits and their families - Gravitiger
[quote]I imagine a college coach prefers kids who think they can go pro. Not sure I'd want too many kids if any at all who when asked answer "I think I'll be ok playing at college maybe, but no way I'll ever play beyond college". I'd want a kid who says "i know I have a lot of work to do to get ther...
