Taliek can’t recruit as in he’s not allowed to? Serious question cause I honestly don’t know
Yeah he's Director of Player Development and not an assistant so he can't be out recruiting

He’s not allowed to. Only Danny, Tom, Kenya and Kimani - can do home visits etc. Taliek can have some contact if they visit UConn. When Kenya was out with a medical issue Taliek could recruit.

Thanks friend....learned something new today. See I find you a lot more informative when you’re not telling me how informative you are. Much appreciated!

Isn’t Johnson strongly affiliated with ‘Gucc’ (?) who was like Bouknights mentor/psa coach. He’s a big fan of Hurley and what we’re building.

Is it me telling you that or is it an assumption you make? I can’t tell you how many posts Chief writes congratulating the Coaching staff or saying they deserve the credit and somehow that gets construed by the usual small disgruntled group of posters as Chief doing victory laps because I predicted and/or Confirmed a recruit was committing (“Confirmed” is the highest standard,100% accurate to date).

Now THIS is good! Love it Chief!

Really hoping Samson is working hard on his game given his upside. Looking forward to seeing him next season at TPS as a primary option. He moves really well for 6'10", fluid gait, good bounce, good athlete. Seems to have a nice touch, good form on the three. He could easily raise his arc to increase his range, softness of shot. I also wonder whether improved ball handling would allow him to play the three. His ease of movement coupled with improved ball handling would allow for him to take five and fours off the dribble. I believe he could really benefit from taking a look at Rudy's game while he was here at UConn and shoot for that sort of versatility only as a four man.

The frame and athleticism remind me of DD. Obviously doesn't have the same skill level DD showed in high school, but put 25 pounds on him and Samson could be a heck of a college player.

That’s one of Chief’s strengths - evaluating raw, developing Bigs. An experienced eye test is more important than the box score at this point.
This is next level stuff. I often wondered how it would be interpreted if I told people my own strengths in the third person. I think it works. Thanks Chief!

really intriguing prospect. He jumps so quick and gets high over the rim due to his length and bounce. I can definitely see him blocking a lot of shots. From the lack of dribbling shown in the video, I imagine his handle is poor but that can be improved. There is real potential for us to be a monster offensive rebounding team with active and quick jumping guys all over the rim like Springs and Johnson.

He seems so smooth and calm while staying active and engaged. Doesn’t seem like a kid who gets rattled under pressure and that quality has the ability to “play up” in big games.
