    He figures to be a real test for Ollie to develop. But anyone who's going to board and play big on D is fine by me.

    Really hope this puts us in a better spot with DJ Harvey, though.

    A quick refresher on the late rising Carlton (Corey Evans of Hoopseen):

    if I'm right people said he was supposed to rise in the rankings substantially right?

    Seems like a good pickup. Is he rated around top150? We do need to see if we can get an impact big but if not at least one that can hold his own inside like Carlton.

    He's 235 on 247. An 82 rated, 4* on ESPN. Seems like a 4 year project. I hope this has implications on DJ Harvey.

    4 star on ESPN is basically top 100.

    Provides good depth hopefully he's not our only center commit this year. An extra big body never hurts

    Wow, tough crowd here. Have any of you seen him play in a live game? I trust KO's assessment more than any of the recruiting services. (referring mostly to comments in the other thread)

    People complain that we can't rebound. Now we get a kid that apparently can rebound and we're complaining. Lol.

    Carlton had a lot of great offers, his list was elite. That's one of the major things I look at for recruits I have no frighin clue about, what staffs have put stock in? I'm weary of saying "this is a project for KO", he's had a ton of projects he hasn't developed, in fact he's had blue chip recruits he didn't really develop.

    If JC is our best big recruit than we are screwed , but if not this isn't bad. class is a failure if they don't secure Richards bamba or Ikey IMO, C is such a glaring need.

    That's an impressive write-up by Evans. Makes him sound like Rod Sellers.

    Exactly. Never seen him play live but he seems perfectly good enough to be a backup Center until he fully develops.

    well we're officially out on Ikey and Richards hasn't looked good for a month. You might be sorely disappointed. Bamba still seems like a major reach.

    Bamba is a reach why? We were in good shape when I heard word in May/June well before the u18 games in chile. From people on the team. Richards I have no clue.

    I hope you're right. But I'm of the mind he'll end up at duke.

    Center is a need, but you're a little over zealous in calling the class a failure if we don't get one ranked higher. If I'm not mistaken, Emeka would have had a relatively similar ranking / grade.
