    Idk. I've been told i've overreacted or i've been fired up when I just point out inconsistencies or see something i don't think makes sense about someone elses posts. We have a sensitive bunch here.

    Is there any official or car wash rumors on when he plans on announcing?

    Do we really want this guy? His video wasn't impressive.

    Why not? He's a raw prospect. Looks like he has a nice stroke and can score from each level of the court. Average athlete but long and he could start with maybe two years of seasoning and understanding his impact. He reminds me a bit of Vance. Vance might just be a better at spotting up from deep.

    well, like many hs players, his game is not yet totally developed and physically he probably has some muscle to add.

    I couldn't find anything about any visits after Tennessee. I think he also listed Dayton and Ok State as interests but no visit. He may have already visited Pitt.

    In my mind DJ Harvey and Diallo can both be big 2G (their pro positions), or play the 3G/Wing/SF in college, and Polley as stated by James is the game of a 3 playing a 4. I don't see a Polley commitment as having any bearing on Diallo/Harvey as far as being overlapping players. On the other hand, it would seem to be a total overlap to Kris Wilkes. Having a solid possibility with a top player like Wilkes in the near future, when a lesser player at the same position, like Polley, is ready to commit to you now, is a part of recruiting that I wish I had more insight into. For Polley we are 5-0 in 'Crystal Ball' picks since Aug. (no picks for other schools since 2015). We have 3 picks in the last week and 1 yesterday after the TN visit (if it happened as scheduled). We also have 1 on the 12th when we and Pitt visited him that could have come from feedback from his camp then. Could we think we have a good enough shot at Wilkes to hold a Polley commitment off until Wilkes' official visit Nov 3? Is there really a tactful way to do that? How do you recruit a kid like Polley hard as your second choice? I can't wrap my head around a kid wanting to be your second choice. On an 'impact' basis Kris Wilkes would project as the better recruit, but, Polley is an excellent player in his own right that I for one would e thrilled with. Bird in the hand or roll the dice?

    Was there a subliminal thought that went with this recruits name and your last statement?;)

    They should want a couple elite players, even 1-n-done to make a 2017 FF/NC run. Polley seems like the same as Vance Jackson.

    Would like Bamba and Diallo obviously like everyone else.

    Ollie has it going again now. If we can top it off with Bamba or Diallo it would be another incredible class.

    Great news. When can we help him with his hashtags (e.g., #huskeynation)?

    I hope this means they can focus on key 2017 players Diallo & Bamba, I think Polley and Carlton will take time.

    He reminds me of Obi Enechionyia of Temple too just looking at the video.

    Final Answer is.... ..Bird in the Hand.

    Welcome Tyler
    I'll go with 6'9 vs 6'7 with Mau's permission
    I'll go with ranked in the top 100 scout & rivals vs 120ish 247 Composite
    4-star vs 3-star
    I'll double down with the DeAndre Daniels comp
    Smile with the made foul shots
    And match Mau's fixation with the foul line jumper vs zones

    Top it all off ratifying universal hope for icing on the cake with 5-star Hami & Mo Bamba
    Extra bonus points for Tyler's gracious well spoken announcement that shows he is a class act to boot
    Thank you Tyler for making my day and positioning the program with 11 quality players awaiting a difference maker
