(2018) PG Darius Garland to Vandy

Recommended Posts

Watching Garland on ESPNU right now, and noticed that the info banner when he was introduced said "Considering: UK, KU, Duke and Vanderbilt." No mention of IU. Think there's anything to that?

Amazing that they exclude IU when he explicitly announced a top 6 that included us. Like how hard is that to research.

First full game of Garland's that I've seen, so the usual small sample size rules apply. Talent and variety in his game are obvious. Great talent. But he doesn't seem like the toughest kid, and he really wasn't much of an on floor leader at all. Maybe it just seems more glaring right after watching Akinjo. That team belonged to that kid and he just competed his a** off. Just a great leader. Maybe Garland's tangibles outweigh Akinjo's  intangibles, but I'm not sure about that. If I had the choice between 2 years of Garland or 4 years of Akinjo, I'd have to give that a lot of thought.

The more I watch Akinjo the more I like him. Garland is a great offensive talent but didn't seem nearly involved.
