Default MBB Recruiting - 2017 & 2018 Classes

With the 2016 recruiting cycle completed with the signing of JUCO Ran Tut, the staff now turns to the 2017 cycle and beyond. By most online "expert" reports, the 2017 & 2018 in-state talent is as strong as ever with quality prospects.

Here are Top 60 listings for SC prep MBB talent as compiled by Phenom Hoop Report, for the next two classes:

2017:

http://www.phenomhoopreport.com/2017...rolinarankings

2018:

http://www.phenomhoopreport.com/2018...rolinarankings

Here's a compilation highlight video from The Hoops Column I posted in a thread for the 2016 cycle - it contained prospects for that cycle, but also a lot of highlights of prospects for the 2017 & '18 classes as well, so it's relevant here:

Seems most everybody having this issue with embedded YouTube not showing up is using Chrome.

Yeah, embedded YT videos on the site haven't been working on Chrome for about a week. Yancey said they were working for him on Firefox though yesterday. I haven't tried any other browsers..

I was hoping we would finally get a pure shooter or two on this team in the near future. After watching Kaela Davis and Allisha Gray making buckets for WBB I tried to see who we have on the men's side that could do that and I come up empty. Duane and Sin are pretty good but they will be gone after this year. I hope our defense gets a lot better because we'll need it.

We'll be returning Dozier who is looking much improved in his perimeter shooting. I have no idea how well either Felder or Blanton can develop as shooters, but they are currently 4 of 5 from behind the arc, combined....

Transfer Kory Holden attempted 178 3-pt shots his final season at Delaware and made 39% of his shots - his freshman season he shot fewer but made 38% of them. That's as good a FG% as Notice has ever had, and his 178 attempts are more in a season than Duane has ever taken from behind the arc as a Gamecock (his best season was last season with 171 attempts).

So perhaps he'll be a shooter for us: I think Coach Martin doesn't really care about having teams that bombard 3s and perimeter shots as much as some other teams do. But he'll always make sure we have a few on the roster that can make a decent % of them....

Carrera, Chat, and Kacinas were among the top scorers for us last season, but they weren't always depended on like that, and they never averaged in dbl digits until their final season (Carrera came close as a true freshman with a 9.9 ppg average). Lets let these youngsters develop and see what we end up with.....

The 10'-15' jump shot is a lost art these days. Everyone wants to dunk or shoot 3s all the time. If my son was into basketball I'd teach him how to master the mid range shot.

Interesting quote from a prospect we're showing interest to. He's a sophomore but is showing a lot of maturity and has a really good game...

"Coach Frank (Martin) has come to a couple of games," 6-7 Christian Brown (c/o 2019) of AC Flora said. He's not recruiting hard but he has shown interest. I have been told USC really doesn't recruit hard until the junior year."

Could this be costing us good, in-state recruits? Are we offering them too late and they've developed great relationships with other schools by then?

Curious how you would do that and FWIW he would get a scholarship hitting 3's much quicker than hitting 10-15' jump shots unless he is over 6'9". Martin does a good job of teaching his bigs the mid range game, look at Kacinas and Silva this year as great examples. He also has Dozier and Thornwell learning to curl to the free throw line and pulling the jumper one of the staples of our offensive sets, this sets up drives to the lane and over the top passes to the bigs as well as open 3's in the corner.

Notice is a career 38% 3 point shooter and Dozier's Fr year was an anomaly as getting used to people running at you while airborne to shoot after knee surgery takes awhile, he is a gifted shooter. Hassanni is a sharpshooter and Felder is a good shooter though a bit streaky so no worries on shooters with this team and based on film Beatty will be a very good shooter for us when he gets here IMO though it appears he will have to develop a catch and shoot but is lights out when he pulls up off the dribble.

He got us Thornwell and Dozier, enough said at the moment. I think not being considered a blue blood of basketball would be much more of a reason than offering them late and once again you are going off the word of a 16 year old kid. Having said that Brown is a stud who will likely grow a few more inches and is a gifted basketball player in our backyard. Duece Dean comes from a good blood line and is a student of the game, his father was a heck of a football player at Dreher and is now a very good AAU coach, would be a great in to some of the elite talent coming out of Columbia.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but Frank could essentially set up camp outside of Brown's house from now until he signs and he will be signing out of state. Whittle on 247 seems to believe that we have a better chance at Williamson than we do Brown and believes we have close to 0% chance at Williamson.

We had no shot at Thornwell when he arrived according to most experts as well, If I remember correctly going into his SR year most had him going to NC State with Louisville or Syracuse as his back ups. Having said that Brown is an up hill battle as is Williamson but never say never.
I know Williamson grew up a Coach K fan but what makes you say that about Brown other than he has offers from everyone in the country?
