The other white meat

If that were the case, wouldn't he have done the NE Prep School route.I hope this is not a case where his family and friends are trying to convince him to go to UConn but he is exhibiting a streak of stubbornness by going elsewhere to take the more difficult route and prove he can be successful anywhere.
I mean he’s saying what he should be saying. Giving the media no information so they don’t screw up his experience. I have no inside information but definitely nothing real can be deduced from these quotes.
... and where your family can easily see your games, if that's important to you.I have no idea why anybody would expect anything different. He's still a junior. He's going to want to visit campuses if he can, and that's probably many months away.
People act like this should be a basketball decision, but any of these schools can get you to the NBA. People like Morant have pretty well put the lie to the notion that what school you go to makes a huge difference to the NBA. So go where you're comfortable, where you like the school and coaches.
So there is merit in offering 6th graders? Just to be first?"Obviously I want to get better and get more schools to offer and interest and stuff. But maybe a couple months from now cut down my schools, maybe a year from now make a decision. I'm not really sure. It's just like all up in the air right now. "
"Right now I don't have my way set on one school or one school I like the most," Clingan said. "So I like them all the same. They were my first offer so that's always going to mean something to me because they had faith in me first. They believed in me from the beginning."
In addition to Syracuse, Clingan has offers from Boston College, Connecticut, Georgetown, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Providence, Rutgers, South Carolina and Virginia Tech.
I’m borderline afraid to say this but is it possible Lively (or someone similar) could be a better fit? I want DC as much as the next guy but sometimes those behemoth big men are tough to fit into the style of play you’re trying to implementLively is another great big man for c/o22 if Clingan isn’t gonna work out.
