    Slacker. And where is @Dove when he should be out skulking behind bushes, getting the lowdown on Polley and MAL.

    Can't confirm but I assumed I met recruits Thursday night and put a hypnotic whammy on them.

    For those who read too much into Twitter like myself. He liked Adam Finklestein's tsweet about makai'a commitment. Could mean absolutely nothing...

    signs are good that this could be commit number two from these signs and him being quoted by Paxton as saying he was amazed. This along with the other tea leaves of following Kai and a few other current players and signs are favorable to a good outcome with this kid too.

    i do really like polley a lot, even with his 100+ ranking. The main reason is how he ended his aau season, at both peach jam and fab48 he was stellar and more efficient than kevin knox, his five star running mate. Im not sure if i see lot of daniels; to me what stood out about daniels was his length for defense, for polley i think its his shooting/offense. check this vid from fab48



    he comes off as a khris middleton type wing, one who really likes driving hard and finishing with an array of layups and floaters. But his main skillet is shooting you can tell, his shooting mechanics are fantastic.

    Been looking for the guy to sit at the pocket of the foul line and shoot it against the zone. Notice his few mid range shots look great - likes to pull up. Would be a very good committ #2

    He has the game of a 3 but plays the four. Would be an interesting puzzle piece for sure.

    we need one this year ha. i'm guessing larrier plays alot of minutes at small ball 4, that allows ollie to trot out his three best guards; gilbert adams purvis larrier and brimah. thats a crunch time 5 there.

    All those foul shots made me think of that Nolan recruiting vid in the layup line! Hope we get him nonetheless! Like the aggressiveness to the goal.

    Can anyone summarize this?

    If he does commit, does this affect any of our other targets a la DJ Harvey?

    Thanks!

    I bet we get this kid, Ollie seems to like dynamic players so he seems to fit that bill, not the typical 4. The longer it goes the tougher it gets, but this feels good
