Move this fans have or don’t have the power to fire a coach talk elsewhere please. It has 0 to do with Lester

Have you seen the Anthony Harris thread? ... That's devolved into a Archie vs. Holtmann thread. ... And here's the ironic thing about that: I truly feel had we not hired Archie, OSU would have. ... But I guess that thread's gotta be about something: Harris didn't pick us.

Anyone hearing any updates on the Quinones visit today? I thought i heard that CAM was out and about looking at other recruits. Is that what everyone else is hearing?

Is Bruiser Flint the primary recruiter with Quinones?  I suppose with Flint's connection to IMG's coach he might be showing Lester around, but one of the things Quinones was quoted as saying is that he was really looking forward to sitting down face-to-face with Coach Miller.  I thought his visit started today.

I like what I hear about this kid's work ethic.  Based on the two interviews I heard with him (one was the video Stuhoo posted here which was enlightening) he seems like a smart and humble kid driven to get better by putting in the work....no days off.

Yes, he does.

Absolutely.   What's your point?

Let me guess....you've never seen any of them play (I have); and you're doing nothing other than what you always do, which is to be critical.   Real easy to be critical when nothing will be seen or known for sure for 8 months, and by then people will forget about the idiotic trolling.   What's your point?

Franklin less accomplished?   How, exactly?   Because of his ranking?   Surely you're smart enough to know how meaningless those are outside the top 5 or so?   Or maybe not.   I saw him score an easy 30 against Lawrence North in LN's building in the sectional 8 weeks ago, and LN has at least two D1 players, and maybe 3.   You can have your self important IMG kid.   But....let's see if you have the sack to come back here next season when I'm right.   Why am I doubtful?

**Edit  : Your last post quoting me was a very pompous correcting of spelling of a kid's name, so forgive me if I don't take you very seriously.

Incredible self awareness. Ripping me for being uninformed (you don't know me), and yet you're so easy to dismiss Quinones simply based on where he goes to school (a program that churns out great players in many different sports, by the way). And by the way, that "pompous response" was in response to you ripping a current IU player when you didn't have all the facts of that player's situation. That was you being...critical, which apparently is also a fault of mine.

I am a big TJD and Franklin fan; I think they will both have varying degrees of impact next season. However, it seems ignorant in my mind to dismiss our last remaining 2019 target, whose best skill is a huge area of need for our team next year.

TJD trying to recruit him as well.

Gotta give TJD credit, he’s working hard on the recruiting trail.

Yes indeed, unfortunately though without much success so far.

So Michigan canceled his official visit, that leaves IU, Memphis, Maryland and LSU. 

He's from Long Island, he goes to school in Florida, and those four colleges are in different areas, none of them close to home. That suggests that proximity to home isn't a factor here. 

2 Big 10 schools, an SEC school, and an AAC school. That suggests conference affiliation isn't as important as it was for some of the recruits we've been after. Playing in the Big 10 doesn't sound like it's an issue for him.

He canceled his original visit but rescheduled and made it to campus. Often times a canceled visit never gets rescheduled. That was the first hurdle. Will he come? Good question. But all hope is not lost here, imo.

Lester Quinones is on campus y'all. He's a top 100 guard whose current best skill is outside shooting, which we very much need. 
Pls. discuss.
 
i swung by Assembly Hall after lunch today... figured the cart was for him... ugly day outside but can't deny the beauty inside!!b6623493a2b5bb8e710d691504b34237.jpg

Anyone know how long he’ll be in Bloomington for? Hopefully the weather can clear up and make things a bit nicer. Im not sure who the presumed leader is of his recruitment or why many seem to be counting us out/treating this as a hopeless recruitment. He’d see a good amount of playing time as a freshman and possibly even start his sophomore year depending on his trajectory. We desperately need outside shooting and it looks like he could provide just that. We will see on May 10th!
