I think this is still the case. Word is he could potentially re-classify as a 2018 recruit.

Man, if you aren't a tater you really need to think about moving from upstate. I don't think we can lose this guy today.

This. Now we are trying to play catch up with UT who we spotted a huge lead to. I just cannot wrap my head around FM's recruiting plan. It seems like we just wait and pick up scraps after the fact or a situation like this where we lightly recruit a instate stud then try to scramble at the end to get him. Hopefully it works out because we need this kid.

I would bet the farm that anyone who prefers Wilson over Burns has not seen either play. Burns is a rock in the middle while Wilson is skinny as a rail. Yeah he may be taller than Burns but their talent levels aren't even close. I guess its a great way to save face for a failed recruiting plan.

More accurate would be to say you don't agree with Frank's assessment of the two players. I don't see Burns as a rim protector, I could see Wilson as that. Burns can be a good post defender in the way that Kotsar is, understanding position and utilizing his width. Wilson is more an above the rim defender. They're totally different players, don't know Wilson just because you prefer Burns and Frank doesn't agree.

Malcolm Wilson is a solid prospect but if he is our heir to Silva then we're in trouble. Too skinny, he'll get knocked around in the post. We need a guy with some size and athleticism like Burns. We can't afford to miss on him.

We said Silva was too skinny when he came in. He'll bulk up over time, our S&C coach has shown they've got no problem putting meat on some players' bones including Silva.

Silva was 6'9" 210 coming in with more muscle (and athleticism) than Wilson. May not seem like a big difference but he had much more of the frame to bang with the big boys of the SEC.

Wilson is 6'11 205 heading into the Summer before his senior season. I don't see a big difference coming in, they were both extremely lanky kids who desperately needed muscle. I expect Wilson would get pushed around as a true freshman, just like Silva was, but would put on muscle the longer he stays in the program.

I just don't see them as the same type of player. I get Brandon Wallace flashbacks looking at Malcolm Wilson. Again, not dogging him, but we could really use a guy like Burns.

No, I have not seen either play in person, but I have watched video. I like Burns because I like bulk inside. But only in the halfcourt. Everyone plays uptempo and fast paced these days so you've got to play above the rim on offense and defense.

Ideally, I hope we sign both, along with James and Gary, but if it comes down to a choice I think I'd go with the taller and more athletic player and put some muscle on him.

But I'll take either one.

I'd personally like both, and if I could sign up for another Brandon Wallace I'd take him in a heartbeat. That man could block shots and rebound, he was never a big offensive threat but you give me a center who can block shots and rebound I'm all in. Also look for those who look at ratings, there is a good chance he sees a considerable bump before everything is wrapped up.

I agree 100%... Don't know about the face saving quip.. Coach Frank has a Spurrier approach to recruiting... I get the impression he doesn't give a flip what we think anyways.. But after screwing the pooch on so many talented instate prospects, he better win and get back to the tournament

With great respect, Burns is a better player than Wilson period

He is just more skilled, a better player. Thats what I see but seems you like Wilson. We will see who has the better career.

Got a CB pick today from the Duke insider on 247. Sounds like he's ready to commit really soon too per his twitter.
