    Fair. On the other hand, she only started playing basketball a little over two years ago and we know that her athleticism is off the charts. She may just be scratching the surface of her talent.

    She rode the hype train from that dunking video to a pretty respectable ranking.. but i don’t think she’s a game changer at this point in time. Stanford would be an interesting pick as far as her style of play..

    I think that's a very valid point. Bring her in and train/coach her up.

    There appears to be "mutual interest" (MM's term, not mine) between Notre Dame and the dunkers from Colorado (Ms. Belibi) and Canada, Laeticia Amihere (although Ms. Amihere's list is still pretty large). ND coach sightings were reported in southern Canada this off season.

    I think she would be a good fit at Stanford.

    I know Zion and his family personally and I must say though I'm upset he didn't pick SC I'm glad he found a great coach in K. Zion skills and Athleticism is next level. He is a different prospect then O'Neal, I think he's comparable to Rasheed Wallace or Andre Drummond.

    Does anyone know the schools that's recruiting Kierstan Bell? Her recruiting has been awfully quiet but man this girl can PLAY! Put up 38 points in front of LeBron James agaisnt Maryland commit Taylor Mikesell.

    She visited louisville this past weekend and was at the recent game against Wake Forest. First I have heard of her, but she was hard to miss, one tall gal!

    I tweeted about Bell one day. Just simple stats and game info with a highlight video attached. One of our coaches liked my tweet.

    Take that for what it's worth.

    I predicted a while ago that tOSU was likely to get one or more of Bell, Horston, Cooke from instate in 2019. Don't know if you been keeping track but Cooke "followers" which includes her father has been very noisy since this summer. To hear them tell it Zia won the U16 FIBA gold Medal by herself. Don't know if that had anything to do with UCONN walking away but they've been pretty noisy on youtube. Zia looking more and more like Kelsey Mitchell (Part II) Another question is will Kevin be around when this goes down.

    Ohio State, the entire Midwest really, is definitely on an upswing in talent. Will be interesting to see if programs like Michigan and Ohio State can take advantage of this. 2019 is a special class for the state of Ohio.

    I couldn't resist this story..this young lady is one of the nicest kids I've ever had the privilege to meet.....she's short in stature only and is an example to everybody in high school basketball about how you can successfully combine academics and athletics without any attitude what so ever......
