    UK, Arizona and, obviously, Oregon are all Nike schools. Auburn is with Under Armour.

    Just watched, for the 1st and last time, about 30 mins of BIG3 basketball. People pay to watch this? Jesus. This is the worst.

    So, essentially they traded Brogdon for a late 1, a lottery ticket(Nesmith) and cap relief. Given where this team is, if they make good calls with the cap space, it works for me.

    Pelicans signing Zion to a rookie max deal. Obviously a no-brainer, but, man, that’s a hit and hope deal. They’re gonna be paying for a lot of down time.

    Looking forward to watching him, but one of the highlight clips was really impressive for his skill level. Showed him handling and making passes on the break with both hands with ease. Showed jump hooks over either shoulder. Showed him facing up and driving right and left. If you didn’t see him shoot jumpers, it wouldn’t have been obvious which was his strong hand.

    After watching Tayshawn Comer pretty much ignore Booker last year, you can kind of picture this conversation: Booker: So, where do I stand while you shoot the ball? Cupps: I don’t shoot the ball. I pass it to you. Booker: So, when do I pass it back to you? Cupps: You don’t, you shoot the ball. Booker: I don’t think that’s right. Cupps: Yes, it is. Booker: (With the heavenly host singing in his head) Where do I sign?

    https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-recruiting-jalen-haralson-is-the-next-big-in-state-phenom-and-hes-ready-for-it/ Nice article by Mike.
  11. Also interested in his comments that some really good players wouldn’t succeed in Bloomington. Every coach says it. In this case, they appear to be married to it. Didn’t offer Isaiah Collier or Kanaan Carlyle and offered Jakai Newton but not Stephon Castle, though Castle may have already been locked in on UConn. Plus, he went out of his way to praise Gunn as an Indiana kid who understands the fishbowl there.
  12. Nothing earth-shattering. Some interesting thoughts on some of the kids who left, particularly Lander and Durr. . A lot of talk about X’s development and how Woody handled him. Some good stuff on how Montverde prepared JHS and Reneau along with how the freshman are fitting in so far. And, make no mistake, Rosemond REALLY likes Banks. A lot about Woody’s expectations and the culture he’s looking for. 1 interesting nugget: Regarding the NW suspensions, Risemond said he was in no way surprised that Woody went that way. He said the only other coach he’s worked with who would have handled it that decisively was Mark Fox. In other words, to no one’s surprise, Dana Altman , not so much.
  13. https://247sports.com/college/indiana/Article/Hoosier-Hysterics-Podcast-Yasir-Rosemond-189336074/ Pretty long chat, well over an hour, and worth every minute. I am an unabashed fan of Rosemond. Very straightforward dude. Plus, he and I really like the same kinds of players, which must really ease his mind.

    Ryan Humphrey, Notre Dame Asst. Coach and a pretty highly regarded guy, is leaving for another opportunity. Interesting timing.

    (2025) - SG Akai Fleming

    Currently has 4 offers: IU, Alabama, Kennesaw St and Kansas St. Watched a game of Fleming’s from March last night. He’s different from some of the other ‘25 offers like Haralson and Trey McKenney who are already physically mature kids. Fleming’s a freshman who looks like a freshman. He’s clearly a good athlete, but he’s all arms and legs at this point. There was no obvious trait that blew me away in a single viewing. But, what was impressive was his basketball IQ. He consistently made the right play and he didn’t force a thing. It really showed up a couple of times on defense where he made reads from the weak side, came off his man and beat a cutter to the pass for steals. His instincts appear to be very good. Also impressed with his demeanor. The kid just plays. Really looking forward to watching him more.

    Nothing not to love about this kid.
  21. B1G schools making a splash in the ‘22 overseas market the last couple of days. Illinois signs 6’10” French PF Zacharie Perrin over offers from UCLA and Texas and UM signs 6’10” Lebanese SF Youseff Khayat over offers from Xavier, DePaul and Wake Forest. Don’t know anything about Perrin, but Khayat is a pretty highly regarded kid in European youth basketball. Imagine he has a good chance to be a rotation piece this season.

    Maybe it works out for them, but everything about this feels bad to me. Davidson lost an elite HC and a bunch of scoring. Torvik has them 103. So, it’s a possibly, though doubtfully, losable game against a team that may not ultimately be good. And are we 100% sure that they can sell out Gainbridge as the A side? They only put 10-12K in there and that slaps them right in the face with the little brother card.
  23. 6’7” rising junior. Plays for Grovetown HS in Grovetown, GA. Unranked on 247 and Rivals. At least at 1 point was playing AAU for Team Dickerson, the same program William Jobe plays for, but not sure if that’s still so. Has absolutely exploded all over my Georgia high school feeds for about the last month. https://247sports.com/player/derrion-reid-46133023/ https://www.hudl.com/profile/14126916/Derrion-Reid
