Yes, especially if we lose him to UCF. He may have family there.
JAYLEN FISHER – 6’1 – POINT GUARD – BOLTON – TEAM THAD – 2016
Fisher commands his gears well on the blow-by and is a fine facilitator and distributor below the arc in the half-court. While his shot isn’t polished, he is confident in hitting off the pull-up and can score in traffic off of either hand that is best fit. The Bolton product isn’t lackluster in defending the basketball as he reads the passing lanes and can heat up the rock on the perimeter. With a good body on him, Fisher looks destined for the high-major realm and a cusp top-100 guy in this year’s rising senior crop.
No surprise here, but Fisher has cut his list down to six and no UConn.
He would've been playing behind two studs in Adams and Gilbert. I think it makes perfect sense to cut UConn from his list.
Fingers crossed for Memphis here, but wouldn't be surprised if UNLV got him.
Memphis media guys saying they would be surprised if he picks Memphis
I'm saying LSU or UNLV.
For what it's worth, his last four CB picks are UNLV, all since yesterday.
Hoping he picks Memphis. This conference needs all the help it can get.
Yeah, there was one thread over on the Memphis 247 board about a week ago that had a tweet from somebody saying that Fisher wasn't going to pick Memphis because Pastner was the coach. Either way, if his top two were Memphis and UNLV, he'd be walking into a situation where there is no guarantee that the head coach who recruited him would be there to coach his freshman year.
Would be cool if he and Monk ended up at Arkansas but that appears unlikely.
Sucks for Memphis. Was their #1 target.
Wow Dave Rice gets another very good player he will do nothing with. Congrats to UNLV
Odds are Rice won't be around to see him play. I know he has big support from the Findlay family but his repeatedly mediocre seasons are wearing thin.
If Memphis gets Charlie Moore they'll be ok, but they got tough comp for him as well.
Not quite sure what they are waiting for but my best guess would be that he had his hands in on some good recruits and the relationship was too solid to take a chance by firing him. Oh well good for the rest of college basketball as none will get much better and some will transfer after 15-16.
I know these guys are teenagers, but it'll never cease to amaze me how clowns like Rice can continue to dupe so many top recruits.
Yup. I still think there's like a 50% chance Fisher finishes his career with Memphis.
You're kidding (I think), but there's some truth to this. Selling a teenager on Las Vegas shouldn't can't be that hard.
Except you have to be 21 to do any of the fun stuff there. And college basketball players usually can't fly under the radar
I will eat my hat if being underage ever stopped Larry Johnson and Stacey Augmon from doing whatever they wanted in Vegas.
In the past I'm sure that was the case, nowadays with the internet and smart phone cameras, things in Vegas don't necessarily stay in Vegas
Bad choice of words I think!
Pimp Daddy Bruce!

BREAKING: 2016 PG Jaylen Fisher is expected to decommit from UNLV and plans to visit TCU this weekend, sources told @CBSSports.
Another PG never hurts.
If he wasn't teammates with Vital I think he'd be worth a look. Not really a good look to start looking at a kid who is a commit from the same class as a kid you are actively pursuing hard.
It would be awesome if Dixon can swing Fisher and Bolden to TCU.
So UNLV is down to 6 or 7 scholarship players now? Wonder if their other commits decide to open back up. Also, is Derrick Jones eligible again? Rough start for their new coach.
