(2018) PG Darius Garland to Vandy

Recommended Posts

Haven't got a clue my man. None. Zilch. It has been radio silence the last few days. Daniels article is about it. Others may be hearing things but I have not which means I am just going with the flow on this one till I hear some news if I even do. Sorry I can't help out more. I like our chances with Archie though. I will most of the time too.

So, you've gone from very confident to not a clue. Thats not great to hear lol

I was just curious, so I looked up some information on Vanderbilt. Memorial gym has a seating capacity of 14,326. 2017 average attendance was 9,635, which placed them 45th nationally. Not sure how other years looked, but that is not all that impressive.

It must be the mom factor maybe?

And yes Sunday is a possibility. With a 2 o clock tip he would still have time, plenty actually. I don't know if he does though. This weekend is a big weekend. Garland has no visits planned and I feel like it will be the actual sitting down and discussing things with family time. I wish I had the confidence of some of you that we get him cause I am worried. I'd be worried regardless until it is official though.

A 2 pm tip means getting to AH for a coach at 9 or 10. Walkthrough and lunches plus pregame. Game will get over about 4-4:30. Addressing the team and media obligations at best 6 pm then a shower. 4 hour drive time. At best if everything goes perfect 10-10:30pm. I have a hard time believing he is going there Sunday. Monday? Probably. Off day except for coaches and maybe a film study from 3-5. Easier to work around. This is why you don't see a lot of recruiting anywhere on game days for any teams away from campus. Special circumstances sure, but a middle of the day creates a harder opportunity for that.  

 

Edit: Flight would be an hour including taxying. Plus clearance time at airport that is close to 2 hours. 8 pm on Sunday night? I don't see that as being plenty actually, especially when everything has to go perfect for that to happen.

Dead period starts Monday so Next Friday would be the earliest a coach could visit. If Garland commits next week, smart move by the Garlands doing it during a dead week period where they can discuss and not worry about coaches

I don't think it happens next week. I think it happens close to the end of the first signing period. Vandy's visits feel like the typical catching up with a recruit after final visits. We haven't even had the final by all visits where every school meets up over a day or two. Assuming that's next weekend.

Yeah seems like Sunday would be too hard. I would expect a visit next Saturday, unless of course Garland pops during the week

Agree the end of the signing period has been my feeling from listening to the Garlands interviews over the last couple weeks

I agree with that. I just don't see him pulling in the driveway after 8 pm on a Sunday. I would expect him there today more than tomorrow is all I was saying. Coaches just don't recruit off campus on game days for a reason. Logistics are harder.

I agree. Just don't see an ideal time. If Garland does come out and say it'll be at the end of the signing period than he can. But I believe he has a game the 14th and we have a game on the 10th and the 12th remember. It's gonna be just as hard to fit in there as well. That Monday is literally the only day besides Saturday which is in between 2 games.

Just think it is still too early. Things flip flop back and forth the last week or so in cases with 2 schools being the favorite. I believe Vandy's appeal of Shittu and Romeo is going down and that is a big part of their pitch besides staying home. Also think Archie finds a way to visit again and if he does like I've been told then I would expect him to close the deal. I just have confidence in Archie. You have seen everything I have heard on here from multiple posters/articles and that is all that is out there sides what the Garlands know which isn't out in the open. My biased opinion is it will be IU all day errrrryday.

I think the Monday is an easier fit as most coaches spend about 10-12 hours on game day at arena. The sandwich day they won't practice, but will do film and light walkthrough, plus media. Assistant coaches could always do the film and light walk through to assist on time. Media can be any time. He has a game today. Then on the 11th at home. Not one again til the 16th. They could have a "pep rally" next Friday and announce I suppose, but my money is after that first home game before the end of the period.

Maybe Archie catches his game tonight or next saturday. Those look like neither are home games though, so next Monday looks like the best day for both. Wow, didn't realize how many games both would be playing in that span. 10th & 12th for us, 4th, 11th & 14th for him it looks like.

The 4th and the 11th aren't actual games for Brentwood. Regular season opener is November 14th. Those two are described as "play days" which I think are just scrimmages.

You honestly think Romeo would go to vandy of all places? I see zero basketball appeal in going to that school.
