    BTOWN reacted to Class of '66 Old Fart in (2021) PF Trey Kaufman   
    Short nugget from today on Coyle and Leary -
    Leal said that he has constantly been recruiting Trey Kaufman, even when Bloomington South played Silver Creek during the season.  "Yeah of course. Whenever we played Silver Creek I would talk to Trey [Kaufman]... He texted me after I won the award and congratulated me and I told him ‘and you’re going to make it number 4’ next year."

    He mentioned that him, Trey Galloway and Jordan Geronimo have a group chat and stay in contact frequently. Said all three can't wait to get moved in and on the floor together.

    Correct me if I’m wrong here. You’re pretty plugged in and good at this type of stuff and I 1) hate recruiting because it’s stupid and 2) have watched one highlight of this kid. He’s obviously talented as all hell and I’m not sure if this comparison will come off as insulting to the kid, but know that I don’t mean for it to be:
     
    Is he Rawle Alkins*? 
     

     
    *I LOVED Rawle Alkins coming out of NYC and he’s one of the many recruits that made me hate recruiting during the later Crean years

    He’s an exceptional athlete across the board. Good size, great body, ok length, quick downhill and laterally, explosive, strong, particularly lower body strength. But his best physical trait, and I mean really good, is his contact balance. Mohammed plays through contact unlike any HS guard I have ever watched, to the point that he seems almost oblivious to it. I watched a kid cheap shot him in a game as he was going for a dunk and as he was crashing he transferred the ball from right hand to left and kissed it off glass for an and 1. Jaw dropping play. And he never looked at the kid and never batted an eye. He just plays through it. Always. 
    He’s got a high skill level, but can improve some stuff. Handle’s a little high. Shot still has a little left drift, though it’s a clean action. But otherwise he’s a really complete player. Finishes with either hand. Can play on the block, in the midrange, and from the wing. Good passer. Really clever around the rim. Can get downhill pretty much at will. 3pt % isn’t great, but some of that is a function of taking 1-2 just terrible heat check-type 3’s per game. When he’s really locked in he does his best stuff in the midrange. He has a pretty sophisticated jab step series and he creates a lot of looks in the 12-18’ range, and makes makes pretty much all of them. Can both create space and force contact. Between Mohammed and Lander, you’d be able to get a good late clock look without fail.
    Fwiw

    I will say that Bruiser had a great game plan on how to play Iowa. Let Garza get his but shut down everyone else. Smith was fantastic on Wisekamp. People sometimes ask what he brings, well last night he earned his money. Knowing Bruiser, I'm sure he celebrated with a nice glass of wine.

    I'm pretty sure everyone will love one of the finalists for the job. He checks a lot of the boxes like previous assistant coaching experience, recruiting experience, knows Bloomington. My one question is will he and his family put in the time to be great in coaching as he did as a player.

    Bloomington has some really good food.
    Nick’s is like a museum of IU-ness that has food.
    Nick’s is most certainly NOT where one goes for really good food.
    Nick’s is a good choice to take a high school recruit who probably appreciates an over cooked burger and salty fries anyway.
