Default 2018 - SG - Anfernee Simons

Five-star shooting guard Anfernee Simons certainly deserves his own thread. With Brian bowen now a Gamecock, there's a good chance Simons could sign with the Gamecocks. Frank Martin visited him in mid-December and he will most likely wait until the Spring Signing Period which runs April 11-May 16 to make his decision. Even then, players have until June 11 to withdraw from the NBA Draft.

He is entering the Draft without an agent.

Our coaches seem to really like Cousinard and he will probably sign before Simons. Would we dump a current player *cough Gueye to make room for Simons?

I think Martin is pretty straight up with his players about the future and how they fit into the program going forward. If he feels it's best for a kid, he'll encourage and help them find better opportunities elsewhere.

That said, with all of his talk about family and "my guys" I don't see him not renewing the scholarship of a player that wants to be here and put in the work. If he was solely focused on getting Ws, then maybe he would cut a player. If that was the case though, I think Felder would already be playing.

The only requirement is that you have to be out of High School for a year. Simons graduated last year and is doing a "post-grad" year at IMG now.

Lavar Ball is pushing for a league where players do not have to go to college but can play professionally for a year before going to the NBA. Some HS recruits are already doing that overseas.

What is "post-grad" for a high school graduate?

Lavar's league will never get off the ground.

Guess it's basically like the 13th grade.

Not sure what the advantage was of going there instead of college, unless it was a grades issue.

Cousinard commits soon and I think we have a pretty good chance at landing him. Cousinard has a top 3 of Illinois Louisville and us. If we land Cousinard will we continue to recruit Simons? We won't have anymore scholarships to give if we get JC.

If Simmons wants to come, he is a definite take.. CFM always has scholarships

You can get your HS diploma at a Prep school or attend after you graduate from HS. Going after HS graduation is if you just need to improve your grades or improve your chances of an athletic scholarship - in other words, "prep" you for college.

The beauty of prep schools is that you can go after HS graduation without losing any eligibility, like would happen at a JUCO. You still will have five years to play four. But it does start the three year clock for NFL eligibility and the one year clock for the NBA, which is why Simons can go pro.

Justin Minaya graduated a year early from HS and thought about going to a prep school to get more big-time offers. In the end, he decided that we were big-time enough - Frank did not want him going to prep school and enhancing his chances at going to one of the blue-bloods.

I agree on Lavar's league. I think even he agrees with you, LOL.
