    Kid can shoot it, we are keeping tabs on him and his teammate Aaron Wheeler.

    Don't worry, I donate $5 a year to the BC AD fund. They get the violation.

    What is that web page? Is it his own page on VC that he updates or something else? I don't understand the tweets connection (probably cuz I don't use twitter). I did gleam 2 star rating, not much else. Am I missing something?

    Is Aaron Wheeler related to Tyson Wheeler, from New London.

    Looks like he's his son. Tyson played at New London. My high school team knocked out his New London team on our way to the state title in '92. Major upset. Tyson was nasty.

    I'm pretty sure Verbal Commits isn't updated by the players, and I would disregard their out-of-date ratings unless you can confirm them elsewhere. They have Hamidou Diallo as a 2 star.

    Every player who has a twitter has their account linked into their page, because people like to stalk high school kids.

    No relation to Tyson Wheeler, verbal commits is probably best place for recruiting news.

    Just scored thousandth point as a sophomore. That size and stroke only a matter of time before the kid starts blowing up.

    Quick update: UNC is now in the picture as well. The word is that while he was the leading scorer on the team as a soph, he did not play as much as he could have since the coach plays the juniors and seniors heavily as the tuition is very high. Expect to see his numbers pop as a junior.

    Kid's been shooting the lights out over the past month. We've yet to offer, but he's getting a ton of high-level interest.

    Participated in St. Louis Nike elite 100 this past weekend. He's 16, most kids are 17 and I guess he played fairly well. Has offers from BC, Creighton and Depaul. Waiting for the big offers to come in.

    Offer him, he's a shooter no doubt. Great release, decent athlete too. And still a mere child.

    Quick update on Cole. BC has told him that he's their "number 1 target". He has recently attended a Boeheim recruiting/nose-picking seminar and Ratface is scheduled to give him a call this week. No word on UConn.

    Given that we're close to a lock to get Reeves, and that KO is spending a ton of time/energy on highly rated SFs like Khavon Moore, Cam Reddish and Sidney Wilson, I think it's a stretch to imagine we'll offer this kid.

    It's too bad since I love collecting New England talent, and doubly so since this kid's a shooter. I see that Rutgers has offered him so maybe he'll head there and help Pikiell building something respectable -- I could root for that, most definitely.
