    Per Borges: Ricky Moore headed down to see this kid play. Apparently Ricky is good friends with his coach. 4* recruit. Scout has him at #70 in the class of '18 and he's listed at 6'3.

    247 just bumped him to 11th in the class of 2018, obviously making him a 5 star recruit. Let's hope Ricky has an in here.

    He's going to be a five star player and hasn't played on any Canadian natl teams? Any background on why his stock sky rocketed?

    Edit ~ Luguentz Dort in 6 games @ adidas Nations averaged 11.3 ppg on 53% shooting from field. 1/10 from 3PT land. 13/21 from FT line. #CdnBallers


    Here's a good long read on him ~ ZSmart's Sports Blog: Dort Returns Favor In Recruiting Friend To Conrad

    "Conrad has some other prospects, including 7-foot-2 Aristide Boya from Cameroon, who Moore will take a look at, as well."

    Interesting.

    Weird, UConn and Louisville are going after the same guard. I guess there is a first for everything.

    I was trying to think of some comps, which is my go-to thing...

    But I was seeing his game and thought of Joe Johnson, with his physical, but somewhat more deliberate offensive style and physical build.

    But then I thought he's already 2 inches taller and he plays a BIT more of a 4-type style with some outside game, whereas JJ is basically a wing type player.

    So long story short, the best I came up with was JJ's game with like a ... I'm not sure who's body, a strong PF.

    This kid looks like if you took Patric Young from UF and shrunk him down into a 2 guard.
