We're already desparate for a PG and that hasn't led to much on the recruiting trail. We have 1 PG committed, and he averaged 7.2 PPG on 39% shooting and 6.2 APG at prep school. Those aren't particularly encouraging numbers.

Hopefully we land Jalek Felton, it felt like that was a done deal about a month ago but it's been very quiet on that front for a few weeks.

Uhhhh.....we have a PG recruit that is a pass first guy that racks up assists instead of points? And that is not encouraging?

It would be discouraging if he had lots of points but not many assists. That would make him more of a shooting guard - and we have those guys already.

Plus, the recruit plays on what amounts to an all-star team. They had plenty of scorers, and what they needed was an assist guy - which Moss did very well.

Duke has offered him. Too many big name schools after him. The way things look now I think it is highly unlikely that we can get him.

If there's a 1% chance of landing guys with blue blood offers, then you offer 100 times to get the 1. Do that enough times and your odds go up. Keep doing it and eventually you become a blue blood yourself. It's a long process, but it can work.

But I agree that our chances decrease when more prestigious offers are on the table. Just have to keep plugging away and going after top talent.

Being that he is more a 2G I don't think its encouraging at all. I also think we are playing behind all the instate guys not named Gary. Its just reality.

If he averages 6.2 APG, I don't care if he is more of a Center. We need someone to distribute the ball and set up our other players. He can do that.

Do you think Frank could talk any of these guys into reclassifying? We need their help now and honestly most of these guys don't need another year of high school ball and we need all the help we can get.

Not if he is turning the ball over and he has a lot of work to do on that ball handling from what I have seen. I would feel more comfortable with HG than Moss running point.

Gotcha. Now that I know that he is a 2G and is not a good ballhandler, I won't be upset if we miss on him.

I was a little confused about him, my bad. For some reason, the 247 Composite has him as the #18 prospect and #3 PG nationally. But now I know that all of those experts are wrong. Thanks for clueing me in.

He was talking about Moss not James. I say Frank should talk James and some other guys into reclassifying because we need help now! James, Gary, Wilson could all get significant minutes because Gary, Moss and James are better now than Gravett will be in his fifth year of CBB. Hate to throw a guy under the bus.

You have to graduate from high school before you start college. Reclassifying is probably not possible for most of them.

The guys were talking about TJ Moss, I知 pretty sure James is Duke bound honestly who wouldn稚 want to be coached by K. I have a feeling things will even out in 2020 when they let high schoolers turn pro I知 willing to ride with Frank till then.

I wouldn't want to be coached by K. Or Roy Williams. I dislike both of them. And their schools.

James has released his top 9 and SC and Clemson made the list. He will start taking visits in August. Let's see if we get an OV.

None of you guys have a clue where JJ is going!!! You have a n inferiority complex that compels you to think the worst!!! I don't know what young Mr. James will do!!! I know we have have a chance until he says we dont.. As well as Duke recruits each year, they might decide not to take him.. Let's let it play out and see if Coach Frank learns to sell his program better... The 2018 class came together better than I ever thought it would!

If we get him here on an official visit we have a chance. But too many times I hear the in-state kids say, "I've been there a bunch on unofficials so I'm going to use my officials to visit schools out of state."

We can't let that happen with Josiah - especially if Gary picks Alabama.

He has a very good relationship with Hannibal. This does not hurt our chances. He calls Trae a great teammate and an even better person.
