CFM was asked about this Thursday. He wouldn't commit either way. Said he just has to continue recruiting. Talks about Bob Huggins and his 2 best players informed Coach Huggins in the summer they wouldn't be back.

By the sounds of that, if he has the opportunity with this young man, I believe he would take him and work the numbers out after that. We still have 3 players suspended and CFM won't commit to their outcome.

Zach Brown is a great kid to recruit for the SC program. He's a legit top 60 recruit for the class of 2017, and he's got all of the things the Gamecocks need to have him come in and play lots of minutes as a freshman at center.

BIG concern (no pun intended) though on his discipline. CFM is a pretty good answer for that, but nonetheless... In the article from Adam Zagoria in the initial post, deep in the article it mentions the fact that Zach was involved in a fight at Miami in December, then transferred to the school in Conn. in January. He then was involved in a fight at a school in Rhode Island in mid-February. The parting with UConn was a "mutual" parting of the ways, not just a kid de-committing (according to numerous sources I've read).

If you watch the video provided in the initial post, you can see that Zach hasn't lived an easy life. This could possibly be another case of "you can take the kid off of the streets, but you can't take the streets out of the kid".

I like the fact that CFM is stepping up to the plate with this one. Coach Martin has taken many a kid like Zach under his wing and brought out the best in them. BUT... he's also had a group of kids in the most recent class who didn't fare so well in their away-from-the-court antics (and I'll leave it at that).

I hope that Coach Martin can make this happen. Zach truly would be the first true center we've had since the Fogler era teams, and a desperately needed piece of the puzzle.

We need good players. Brown is too good a prospect not to sign, if we can. But he is also a gamble for any team he signs with.

The tapes makes him out to be a very humble young man with a strong hunger to learn the game and make something out of his life, Coach Martin would put him in the NBA in 3 years...
