    Waiting keeps their name alive on social media & in the world of recruiting journalism. How many people would've known who Taurean Thompson is if he hadn't dragged things out so long?

    Yep, they really don't need a PG in this class but they are only going after MAL. They are all in on 2017 Big Nate Watson, they want him bad. He is now down to Wake, UNC, Maryland, Miami and Providence. He has officials setup with Maryland, PC, and Miami. If MAL wanted to come it's a no brainer but he is the only PG they are looking at in 2017 and the only one they would accept a commitment from., the main focus is on the big.

    I've heard that MAL would want to play with Bede in college, which makes me even more surprised that he didn't wait for some bigger offers and that any of the schools recruiting MAL didn't go for a package deal. Seems as though they see it as if they make each other better when they play together, personally I think Bede needs MAL way more than MAL needs Bede.

    It does definitely seem unusual. Usually we see "Blessed to have received an offer from UCONN"

    Too early to tell. TSam was a great guy and teammate, loved UConn, but he didn't end up being a great fit and henceforth an ambassador. I could see him being a fan favorite at PSU though.

    Vital will live by the 3. He has to make shots. That's what can earn him minutes when competing with stud recruits like Gilbert or Langford. Especially with the lack of premium shooters Ollie has landed at the 1/2.

    75% UConn I've been told. Providence trying hard to change that.

    Gave you a like. But how your source comes up with a number like 75% makes me scratch my head.
    Is the kid's torso and legs committed but not his arms?:cool:

    That's just about how close we think we are to a commitment. Obviously it's not exact.

    Scheduled to make official visits to both UConn (September 10) and Providence (September 17). Louisville was scheduled for September 3, so maybe one of the officials to UConn or Providence gets moved up. Will probably make his decision in the next few weeks.

    Any chance in hell we can get both Waters and MAL? Or is Waters pretty much gone at this point?

    My best guess is one or the other. Been hearing a lot of Indiana and Waters now
