His height keeps changing.
Although I mostly agree with your sentiment.... Being literate and having the ability to speak well, doesn't win you championships. Skill does.
Well, considering Ollie seems to excel at Calhoun speak, I expect it to change another dozen or so times.
Can't win championships without good grades. School before sports.
Apparently he can.
Tyler Polley Posterizes Defender @ Pangos All-American Camp!
oh, damn... I like the attitude after
I like this kid. Glad he committed. May be lower ranked. But I could see him being a guy who's a late bloomer. Certainly has the athletic heritage. Got a little Tayshaun Prince in him if you ask me. Always respected Tayshaun. Never thought he was going to be a super star or the even the best player on a given court. But very versatile, long and rangy, and a great motor.
That sums up my feelings better than I could've.
I admittedly haven't been as in tune with these types of recruiting targets so to me, getting HD or HD + (insert 4-5*) is the goal for this class, and no matter how great otherwise, will sting if we don't at least get that.
Didn't pay attention to him this summer. Anyone know why he didn't play much during EYBL and then doubled his output during Peach Jam?
Also summer mixtape:

Yup, tell that to the one & done(s)....
That's Kentucky and puke, they get free passes
Where did the word "reminds" go?
Florida power forward latest commitment secured by the UConn men’s basketball team
Seems like you can say that about every one of these kids.
They are growing
Some guys ask the HS coach, some ask the AAU coach, some talk to the parent, and some might even talk to the kid.
coaches, parent and kids all lean toward exaggeration on this topic, but not necessarily to the same amount.
With shoes, without shoes, two pairs of socks, whatever.
Completely agree with this point, I think it's 100% correct and a big plus.
But on top of that, this kid looks fantastic in the tapes from this summer that have been posted. Plenty athletic, quick first step, soft touch, and as mau has pointed out some nice midrange shots. Unlike much of what you see in mixtapes, those midrange shots are actually available in college ball.
I think we got ourselves a real sleeper. Very excited about Mr. Polley.
I'm not naming names. Just sayin' if you can't string three words together properly, might not want to advertise it, these kids are going to college and all. It looks bad when a kid clearly can't write at a 3rd grade level and he is announcing his commitment to a highly competive university.
I'm not saying I don't want 5 Star players, just saying, I like a kid like this. He takes pride in the job he's done and he cares enough about the honor he is receiving not to mock the process by writing an announcement that baffles most grown adults.
I would wear four pairs of socks. Might get me to 6'-1.5"!
Seems much more polished and confident in this most recent mixtape.
And again I ask, why do we still refer to these videos as tapes? Is this not the 21st cdentury? Has video tape not gone the way of the very short uniform pants and canvas high tops?
Well, we certainly have the depth taken care of in this class. Now we just need some high-end sizzle at the wing (Diallo) and big (Bamba) positions.
i think five star Kevin Knox was playing with USA u17 during peach jam. So he was more of a focal point for his Aau team.
Compare this to failing to hand out enough schollies and essentially wasting them on mid-major talent like Lubin (or walk-ons) at the last minute. No offense to Rock.
I prefer this.
We still hang up on people with our cell phones.
I'll say "tape" instead of DVR forever.
Maybe your just getting old lol
