Four-star stretch PF.
Three commits in two weeks?
It's almost as if Chief was wrong about the staff not being able to close with without Bunky!
Awesome get. He has so much potential. Welcome Tyler!
Polley want a championship! Squawk!!!
Welcome aboard Tyler!!! Let the good times continue. KO is Killings it.
With this commitment, we move up from the 24th ranked class to the 9th ranked class according to 247.
I watched whatever was available online about this kid. He has so much to work on (jump shot takes too long to set up, strength, body control, fluidity) but this is definitely a kid that coaches must love. He seems to play hard, has a knock for coming up with the ball, aggressive and looks to draw fouls, very nice shooting touch, and real length. Good job, KO!
Again, one thing that stands out is he's not afraid to catch it on the high post, square and shoot or dribble it a couple times and throw a floater up. We have been very weak there with the people who have been asked to flash not confident and crisp in decision making, most of the time hardly even facing up.
Sounds like a real humble and intelligent young man.
Seems like a good get. Did we get any more insight on his height? He will be a good bench player as a freshman and will be a guy who we will love as a senior. Would still love HD and MB.
Wow...this happened fast and sort of out of nowhere even though we were thought to be his leader. This does simplify the recruiting equation for us though...go hard after Bamba and Diallo...Beatty as a backup to Diallo. Leave everything else to 2018.
3 commits in a blink of an eye...kudos to KO and staff.
His game me a lot of DeAndre Daniels . . .
Love it! I called a class of MAL, Diallo, Polley and Carlton. Pretty sure it will happen, if we can bring Bamba in as well we will all be doing the happy dance.
Scout has him at 6'7", 210 lbs, but I see no mention as to a 4-star. Still he looks like a good one and a definite late bloomer
Well that escalated quickly! Welcome to Storrs Tyler!
I agree with Diallo & Bamba, they could be key to a 2017 FF/NC run.
I can't edit my post, but apparently it is now up to the #7 ranked class.
Alright KO, let's grab Diallo and Bamba now and let last year's class fight it out with this year's class for that "top five" nickname
Never said that - said they would need to change their formula and I predicted MAL.
I hope he's not a one hit wonder.
??? What do you mean by this? He's definitely not a 1 and done type. I don't imagine he plays much as a freshman, but will develop into a strong contributor his sophomore year and beyond. Very similar skillset to DD and hopefully similar trajectory.
I thinking he was referring to the music thread he posted recently...
The thing I actually like is that he's listed as a PF. DeAndre was always trying to play the 3. If Polley embraces being a big man, he'll be good as a pick and pop big man. He's got a nice jumper and looks solid from the FT line.
He's been listed as both a SF & PF in different recruiting services, just like DeAndre was, and DeAndre having the kind of skillset that he had to play both inside and out was a bonus for the offense. If Polley can reach 80% of that level by the time he leaves here I would be thrilled, I'd imagine KO would love to use him the same way if he can stretch his shooting out to the 3point line as he develops.
Kid has a real nice shooting form. Needs to get bigger w time.
Carlton moved up about 50 spots on 247 so that explains the change in class rank I'd assume
