if we get her or they get her she is good enough to make it to the next level no matter where she goes
No doubt Jordan will make it to the next level. But where she goes will determine how prepared she is to excel at the next level. Should she choose to stay home and play at Ohio State or TN she will be less prepared to excel in the WNBA. Jordan BB gifts are immense Geno, Dawn, or Jeff will ensure that she does not cheat her gifts. Make no mistake that is the exact order (Geno, Dawn, or Jeff) Holly will not recognize or know how to best empoy Jordan's gifts and she will leave the OSU the same as she arrived if she decided to stay home.

If Jordan chooses UConn, she will be a strong DPOY candidate and very, very early draft pick.

I find it fascinating that our friend Raoul mentions verbals from players going to Indiana State, Middle Tennessee State, Bethune Cookman and Prairie View A&M among others but no mention of Aubrey Griffin to UConn....
That's because he's a jerk. He mocked Aubrey, a teenager, because she included UConn as one of her finalists even though she had yet to receive an offer from UConn. He was called out on it and of course his mature response was to ignore both the news that Aubrey was offered by UConn and that she verbally committed to UConn. What a guy.

The only Raoul I know is Hunter S. Thompson's alter ego, Raoul Duke. Who is this guy?

Note sure if this has been mentioned before. ESPN article on Aliyah Boston from a few days ago says she down to Connecticut, Notre Dame, Ohio State and South Carolina.
Elite prospect Aliyah Boston strikes gold with USA Basketball after leaving paradise behind
Anyone else surprised by Ohio State?
Yes.
Reasons?
- Possible playing time from the moment she signs her letter of intent?
- She or her parents like/look good in red, grey and white?
- She wants to get buckeye stickers on her helmet (oh, wrong sports)?
- NHL franchise, she can see Bruins when they hit Columbus (assuming she's a hockey fan...)?
- Maybe she knew both UConn and ND were there for the most recent final four and wanted to cover her bases.....?

Got me, but she's already taken her OV; one of the two she's taken pre-3 vs. 3 tourney. She'll then do S. Carolina and UConn afterwards.
