Things keep looking better and better when it comes to Gary, not only is that big but he's also a perfect fit for what Frank likes to do. He gets after it on the defensive end.

Give me the trifecta of James, Gary, and Burns and that's a heck of a class.

Brown's more than likely going to UGA unless maybe Fox gets fired which is a really strong possibility. James is close to being considered a 5 star recruit, will probably get that fifth star by the time his recruitment is over with.

For real? Why?

Kid plays his high school ball 20 minutes from CLA and we can't even get consideration?

I think Mark Fox is out at UGA. Even if he keeps his job, it would be difficult for him to play O Line for us and coach them at the same time.

We are pretty solid inside with Kotsar and Haase, plus Famouke-Doumbia, Cudd and Gueye should be far enough along to contribute. Then Gary (hopefully) to go with Minaya and Bowen (again, hopefully) at SF.

Brown is one of those hometown kids that seems to want to get out of town. We just have to keep recruiting him, then let him go if his mind is set.

Has absolutely zero desire to stay instate on the part of him or his folks. Actually they want to him to leave the state. We have basically 0% chance here and Frank has already moved on.

I can live with that.

But why UGA of all places? What's the draw? Basketball at UGA is about the same as here in terms of fan interest. Distant second to football. I could get leaving the state to go somewhere with a really good program. UGA is just alright.

Itís way lower than here in terms of fan interest. We have much higher attendance and a much larger arena.

I don't get the UGA thing but I think him growing up in Columbia is actually a negative in this case. He wants to leave town, some people grow up loving where they grow up and not wanting to leave some are just the opposite and can't get out soon enough.

Leaving town is more prevalent in basketball, since most of the players travel with AAU teams during the summer, so they get to experience being away from home and enjoy the lure of big-time basketball.

One of those "hard to keep them down on the farm when they have been to the big city" things.

Plus, a lot of the interest in staying home has to do with things like childhood experiences, whether they have a strong nuclear family, lots of close friends, girlfriend(s), etc. A recruit with an unhappy home life or one with bad influences will be more likely to leave town. And in some cases, it is better for them to leave.

I don't even think it has to be an unhappy home. I grew up in a loving household that encouraged us to leave town for school. Not because they didn't want us to stay, but more so that you don't get too comfortable in your hometown. So many people just get stuck in their hometown out of comfort and fear that they grow up to regret it later.

Good point. I left town after college for the same reason.It is great to be around friends and family, but sometimes you need to get out of your comfort zone to grow as a person.

Which just reinforces the point that we are not going to get every top prospect that comes out of Columbia, or even the state. We still need to get our share and find out of state (and international) players that fit what Frank wants and are coachable. If we do that, we will have a team (emphasis on the word "team") that can beat the one and done teams of college basketball.

James is now considered the best player in the state. Guy has been bumped to a 5 star in ESPN's rankings and most of 247.

Oddly enough, he did not show up on the list of top scorers in the area, which starts around 12 PPG. Nesmith was there in the upper teens, so he must be the go-to guy for a bucket.

James was, however, one of the leaders in assists with 4.5 per game. And P-G has a really good team, so maybe the ball is being spread around a lot. I can see James deferring to (and setting up) the Senior Nesmith.

An unselfish team player who is a 6'6" PG - nice!
