    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.

    I used to ask this question, so I'll go easy on you. If there was an update on him, it would've been posted.

    Then you hit big leagues with some insider contacts. Just curious, and this might sound a little mocking but i'm genuinely interested, did you like it more when you got your info early or when it was relayed to you by other insiders on here?

    Haha sorry if I wasn't clear, what I meant was did you like it more when you got recruiting info second hand a la 99 or tcf, etc. Or now that you get it personally from your sources and you relay it to the rest of us.
