    T.J. Clark, ‘22 SG from Georgia without, if 24/7 is to be believed, a single high major offer, signs with Overtime Elite. Really curious what a deal for a kid like that looks like.

    I think they’re probably mediocre. We’ll see. But calling out the TE for not catching a swing pass that Howell released while his back was still turned and put over the wrong shoulder and not even mentioning the terrible decision on the game ending int screams,”We’ve got a narrative and we’re goin’ with it.”

    The announcers have now mentioned both Va Tech’s and UNC’s histories of producing great rb’s and the examples they bust out are….Lee Suggs and Natrone Means. What’s it been, 20, 25 years since those guys were in college?

    Posting both of these because they’re pretty instructive for highlight clips if you watch them consecutively. The top 1 is  from Aug of ‘20, so pre-sophomore yr. it has some value in that it has some full sequences and shows warts rather than just highlight plays. The 2nd is from a couple of weeks ago. Bottom line: this kid absolutely exploded in a few months. Physically, athletically, skill-wise, Little looks like a completely different kid. It’s not unusual at that age, but this is an exceptional example. He’s a terrific athlete. He’s a specimen. Long and explosive. Really gets downhill aggressively. Certainly not enough to make a judgement, but the tool kit is apparent.

    Watched him in the 1st 2 games last night, and once you get past atrocious to’s the 1st 2 times he touched the ball in the Puerto Rico game, he’s been very good. Defensively, he’s been a menace. No  idea how many deflections he had between the 2 games,  but easily double digits. Just overwhelmed the Dominican Republic guards. Best defender on the floor in both games.

    Depends what you need from him. Trayce is about to turn 22 and weighs 245. When Clowney hits a campus he’s gonna be 17 and weigh 210. He won’t be physically ready to just walk in and be a dominant interior presence. But he has a much broad skillset and a higher ceiling than Trayce. Offensively, he can play the dunker spot. He can fade or roll out of high ball screen. He can make open 3’s. He has good footwork and fundamentals on the block. He can face up. He might even be able to get some work done from the wing. Plus, he can really run. And defensively, when he gets it figured out, he’s gonna be a complete Swiss Army knife. He’ll be able to play high ball screen any way you want to play it. He is so good laterally he’ll be able to stay frontal against pretty much anyone. He’ll be able to shrink angles with his length and movement. He’ll be a major presence in the lane. He has both really good timing and the patience to stay down as a shot blocker. Eventually, you’ll be able to put him in any lineup and he has ways to help. He’s not a 15/9 guy the day he shows up. But when he fills out and gets Woody’s schemes internalized he is gonna be really useful early and by year 2 he will be an absolute monster. I’d buy all the stock I can get in this one.

    One of the last quotes from Clowney in the Q and A tells me he really liked what he saw and experienced and don't think he was scared off in any way.  In addition, I felt the tweet from his mother after their visit was genuine and not just a formality.
     "But when I was there (at IU) I was having fun.  Usually I would be ready to get back home but there I would have stayed more nights because I was enjoying it."

    Someone mentioned several days ago that Dorman HS is not a small school and that is absolutely true.  Latest data I found for Dorman is a high school enrollment of 2,558.  That would make Dorman the 16th largest high school in Indiana falling between Brownsburg (2,711) and Lawrence North (2,524).   It's arena seats 3,200 and compares to a few others as follows.
    5,500   Center Grove 3,200   McCutcheon 3,000   Bloomington South 1,500  Culver Military Academy
