    I think it's just that the 5 star guys are hard to sign / yet we still try.

    He was a rare guy who would occasionally talk back to Coach - not a smart move LOL. However, he was a tough kid with good hands - helped in the Duke game with interior toughness.

    One of the few Prop 48 guys who graduated after 4 years and left with still a year of eligibility.

    I played for Sacred Heart in Waterbury and we practiced at the Boys Club daily... Edmund could dunk in 8th grade... I played against him often around the city (rec leagues, YMCA, parks) He always had hops.

    I recall watching Saunders when he was in elementary school. He dunked into the peach basket and we were all blessed.

    When asked what his favorite breakfast condiment is, he responds emphatically, "JAM"

    Click on the image. He tagged Gilbert, Vance, Vital, Durham, Purv, Coach Killings. Good to know he's building relationships early with the younger players.

    Also, #32's Instagram name is "bootycake".

    Why didn't he tag the white dude on the left who looks like he's just thrilled to be there. LOL!

    Some very nice highlights of Tyler. Looks like a solid deep shooter. Definitely needs some muscle...

    Wow he made all the shots. :rolleyes:

    Really though he looks nice. Put on some beef and he'll be solid.

    Not really "wow he made all the shots," rather "he made a bunch of threes and looked comfortable taking them, handled with both hands in the open floor, and did both in the same game." This isn't a mix of multiple games. I'm liking what I see.

    Exactly. He showed some nice versatility for one game's worth of highlights.

    Really excited for Polley to put on a UConn jersey. With that length and shooting touch, we might have another Larrier on our hands.

    He might be underrated, give me all the 6'8 athletic snipers available. plus he showed out at peach jam while being teammates with a 5 star high usage player like knox. exciting prospect.
