Don't normally follow Basketball recruiting as much as FB but this guy can ball. Would be a great pickup, especially if he spurns UCONN. KU, UK and Duke.

Wouldn't be the first big time recruit for Martin but no doubt he would be the biggest... He is a game changer...

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.

UGH... I hate it that I called this a number of weeks back. I really wanted Zach to pan out for CFM and the Gamecocks. Real program changer, he would have been.

If the charges are true, he's not going to school anywhere. It'll be prison yard ball for a 7 footer with serious talent instead.

I just hate it for him... truly do. This is a kid who could have taken the world on in basketball and had a nice NBA career in front of him. Unless something drastically changes, we'll now never know.

It really is tragic and shortsighted. If he had played his cards right he would be able to buy anything he wanted in a few years.

Well after what we went through with the players and the pellet gun issue, I can't really see us entertaining bringing in a prospect arrested on armed robbery. Moving on....

It always seems like it is the Centers that get involved in armed robberies.

"So can you describe the robber?" "Yeah, he was about seven feet tall....."

That makes it even dumber.

Well, after all of the previous drama, and then Zach signing a LOI with St. Johns, THIS happens...

http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/co...icle-1.2949698

IDK if Frank would still chase this kid or not. He's a freakin' stud, but man... talk about stupid decisions.

Such a shame... Zach has NBA written all over him, talent-wise.
