It looks like getting Hannibal has really helped our chances of getting James.

Word in the Lowcountry is that if he stays in-state he'd choose Clemson. However, there's a huge pull for him to go to Michigan State because that's his father's alma mater.

I can see that, but then how many games would his family be able to attend? Are they well off enough to travel that much? SC is much closer and Frank Martin is as good a coach as Izzo. (and younger)

Maybe I should say "potentially" as good a coach. Izzo certainly has a better overall record.

Going to Clemson could never happen. We were told by posters on this board that big time in-state bball recruits don't choose Clemson either.

So why do we care? People gonna go where they want. Most all people here think we don't play round ball at USC since the 60's 70's. I read this forum a lot. With the exception of 2 or 3 folks here the only thing stated is FM can't get it done. So why care? Sarcasm sux.

Time to put the Full court press on this kid with Gary going to Bama. Turn up the heat and throw the kitchen sink at this kid.

Pressure is not the way to handle his recruitment right now. It would smack of desperation. He hasn't even taken an OV.

USCBASEBALL1 has been one of better and better informed posters for a long time. Martin has never been a big time recruiter, and the fact is the pool of players willing to play for him is a lot smaller than most coaches.

And I will be shocked anytime you have positive comments about USC basketball. And Pendleton is how many miles from Clemson?

No one is more critical of Martins recruiting and sideline antics than me... That being said, we all know a lot less than Josiah James about his choices... He says we are being considered. I take his word over any fan on an internet forum... Do I think Coach Martin will seal the deal? Don't know!! But I know we have a chance until James says we don't! Our best hope is that Duke has higher priorities and can't take him!! If that happens who knows? I like our chances better than Clemons!

Default Re: 2019 - PG Josiah James (MBB)

I'd be surprised if James chooses USC. Hope he does, but we usually don't get players who are offered by Duke, Kansas, or Michigan State. I hate to see Frank and his staff spend lots of effort to recruit anyone they are never going to get. I hope there is a way to determine very early in the process whether USC has a legitimate chance to get kids Frank wants. If we conclude our chances are poor, then mark that kid off the list and spend your time on someone you have a better chance to land. And I hope our coaches will stop caring about whether they sign in-state players. I know I have.
