    From a Scout article out today:

    Recruiting wise there are numerous schools who are really making Fisher a priority recruit.

    “The top people would be Connecticut, Arkansas, and Memphis,” noted Hurd. “They have probably been the ones on him the hardest. Then it is Florida, Baylor, Tennessee, and then Louisville and Kansas as well, but those two haven’t offered yet.”

    That's two highly rated point guards in as many days that have UConn among their top three in some fashion.

    Good.

    Sign one of them.

    They've actually been recruiting Fisher for a very, very long time.

    Don't know much about the Georgia kid, but Fisher would be a great fit. More point than combo.

    I'm not sure about this one. Weird mixtape...strange shot. His dribbling is unorthodox, but he can sure pass. Most of our guys are not adept at catching passes cleanly and executing. Because it does seem that he has any semblance of an outside shot, I wonder if it would put our three scorers in a disadvantaged situation. Don't know if he offers enough to keep the opponents honest. I suspect that he would have a harder time getting into the box against D1 teams. Quality teams are interested, so there must be more there than evidenced by the tape.

    Nonsense.

    He's a 2016 recruit - you don't even know who he'll be playing with so projecting the way you are is a waste of time.

    Kid's a true point guard.

    Not to be rude, but with few exceptions the recruiting sites generally know what they're talking about.

    Also, perfect high school players without flaws are very hard to come by. There's nothing wrong with bringing about a highly skilled and talented player who needs to work on a couple of areas of his game.

    I love his game. His change of pace and sleight of hand isn't something you see everyday.

    Twitter handle is Fish Sticks? Considering our numero uno poster is Fishy, and the fact that we have a sub-forum dedicated to our aquatic friends, I think we have an advantage over those inferior schools.

    Consider my observations stupid. The mixtape didn't suggest those attributes. I'm interested in anyone to help this team. If he is all that and we land him, good for us.

    Wasn't "Fish Sticks" Aussiecuz's nickname for Fishy?

    Not stupid, just not enough info...

    Thing to keep in mind - when you watch these mix tapes, you're at the mercy of whatever high school A/V kid edited it.

    You can find games on YouTube with out much trouble - those are better.

    I'll be happy with any of our PG targets from 2016 - Gilbert, Gibbs, etc. But from what I've seen & read, Fisher is my favorite. Hope we land him.

    If he ends up signing somewhere else, I'll post a photo of Beaker from The Muppets. Can't do it while we are in the running for him though. Bad recruiting mojo.

    Totally different players. Beaker is left-handed, Jaylen is a righty.

    Fisher only leaves Memphis if Memphis decides the New Orleans PG is the better choice. Currently crystal balled 100% Memphis. We have two of Fisher's AAU teammates already commited in Nick Marshall and Jeremiah Martin.

    Respect your thoughts but kids and recruiting are funny things when decision time comes. We'll stay on hold here.

    Memphis kids are hard to pull away from Memphis. I personally think Memphis gets the New Orleans PG or Jeremiah Martin develops to where it's ok to pass on Fisher. I actually think he be a good player at UConn.

    Who else do we have now or coming in that won't be here in '16 besides possibly Danny?

    I don't agree with what the other guy said, but this reasoning isn't really spot on either.

    I think Grant clarified that and I don't think Fisher goes to Memphis. Never know though Fisher is really close with Martin and Marahall. As Memphis fan I am still paranoid with team Thad turning Memphis kids away from Memphis.
