Top 100 recruit Jordan Bell
The kid is begging for a ride. TOS
I'd love to see us la
I'd love to see us land this kid more than nearly everyone else. Powerforward. Big, strong, tough, and athletic. Good defensively. Sounds like a marriage made in heaven.
He seems a little small for the PF at UConn...maybe he can be another KFree if he can build up some.
I would take another KFree or Jeff Adrien.
odd.......Jordan hasn't had any direct contact with UConn, they have inquired a few times this summer through his AAU and high school coaches.
Recruiting is like dating. He's got a crush. UConn has to string him along a little bit or the butterflies will go away.
We need a big 2013 class if this kid likes us that much hopefully he gets the ball rolling.
His love for UConn should warrant an offer.
Wonder who the "bigger" fish is
6'7" 207 is a stringbean
"For the Magic, Jordan Bell played with tremendous energy and did everything he could to help the cause. The 6-foot-7 power forward is one of the class of 2013's most extreme athletes and a quick leaper who rockets off the floor to block shots and slam down putback dunks in the blink of an eye. He plays with a definite edge to him and is a high volume rebounder who has been working hard to round out his overall game."
Jeff adrian rebounding and hustle + Stanley Robinson athleticism + Thabeet blocking!
hahahaha if thats the case lets get this kid!
jeff adrien was listed at 6'6" 220 when he enrolled at uconn...grab this kid and put a little muscle on him...lets go!
at the same time i get a little concerned when kids say we are the top school now...i feel like some kids say we are their dream school so when we do offer they get more exposure and go off to another high major that wasnt looking at him before until uconn offered.
you cant teach hustle/will...that is the #1 thing i would look for in recruits at this point. Look at what adrien was able to accomplish every game compared to drummond. Thier physical traits were so different but at the end of the day, it comes down to how bad you want it. Always going to love Kemba for that.
Being a dream school is the best compliment we can get. No matter what the intentions are.
With out seeing this kid, i like what i'm reading. I'd rather see this program go after tough blue collar workers (Burrell, Donny Marshall, Freeman, Adrian) in this mold rather than high ceiling bluechips that crumble/disappear under pressure (Donyell Marshall, Deng, Villanueva, Robinson.)
That list of guys is....interesting.
If anything, Stanley's best game was in the Final 4. He came alive in Michigan.
I would really like to see this kid end up here. 100% effort from him all the time like adrien, and its not like he would discourage other bigs in the class since he could very well be a tweener 4/3 in calhouns system (definitely would need some work, but not unheard of since JC loves to put NBA size on the floor)
Unbelievable. Donyell, our first consensus AA and one of our greatest players ever, misses 2 free throws against Florida and you throw him in the same class with Anjou. Boy are you tough.
