[quote]I will say, though, that if this just happens to be the one year ever that Sleazipari strikes out on most of his top targets and has to come chasing one of ours, then it's a bit unlucky on our part.[/quote] It's happened twice: Willie Cauley and Trevor Lacey....

[quote]Our bigs Donta and [b]Jimmie[/b] understand now that if they don't rebound, they won't play because we've got someone on the bench who will.[/quote] I feel like this is directed at one more than the other. Hall's per minute rebound numbers were very solid. Loved everything he said, esp...

re: 2017 Basketball recruiting and offseason news thread - BigBird09
With both Reese and Jones set to commit after their visit with us, you have to feel pretty confident that we'll land both. Hopefully he sees through the BS, but I imagine with Petty finally being given the royal treatment by UK, you have to think our chances with him are getting slimmer. Landing two...

It's not the same for basketball. Not sure why anyone would care if we changed the basketball uniform...

Probably won't be the last. The Kansas guys are pretty big homers. Plus it's pretty common to see kids get a few CBs for the team they're about to visit just in case said recruit commits on the visit. Some of those CB guys take it way too seriously....

[quote]Where do you get that from this? I read it as us being the favorite but GT has a shot. [/quote] Look at the source. He's a good poster, but he has had a pretty bad case of the worry warts the past month or 2. Understandable considering our past. BTW what happened to Arizona? I could hav...

[quote]What are these guys thinking, coming in on a weekend when there is an away football game. No way I would do that. I'd want to be around when all the fun is going on.

[quote]Reese has been pretty low-key throughout his recruitment, but offered up this when asked the biggest factor in making his decision. "Where I feel like I can get to the next level," Reese said. "I'm going to try to (sign in November). After that visit (to Alabama), I'll pretty much know whe...

re: 2017 Basketball recruiting and offseason news thread - BigBird09
I wouldn't say I'm very worried, but if you're not a little worried about a top 10 recruit going elsewhere when he's not committed, that's called over-confidence. John Petty was 100% UK not that long ago, and I think we have a 50/50 shot at him right now....

[quote]Good luck to him. Sucks to see instate talent leave, but [b]at least he's not going to AU.[/b][/quote] This. Would have created a terrible recruiting pitch against us. Plus, if he goes off, it'd really suck to play against him knowing we could have had him....

[quote]Getting one of these kids to "commit" doesn't make a hill of beans. Didn't we learn this last year? Until its signing day, doesn't matter how excited they get on their visit. Signing day is all that matters[/quote] So you won'the get excited if they commit this weekend? Commits in basketb...

[quote]Sexton, Petty, Reese, Herb, Hammonds[/quote] This. Maybe sub Hammonds with Garza. Hoping for Brown, but that would be the far and away biggest pull our basketball program has ever accomplished in recruiting. Brown actually scares me. The Ayton commitment to Arizona just gives him more ammo...
