That recruiting visit situation reminds me a lot of Da'Shawn Hand's.
I think he meant leery...
If that were the case, would he not have gone harder after Davonte Neal and Robert Foster among others?
I would think Urban only takes a guy because he wants him, not because others want him.
I would be worried if OSU was playing PSU at home, and he chose to visit Iowa over OSU. I doubt PSU will take him as a visitor, so he would have to pay for tickets, where he can get Iowa tickets for free.
What I think is interesting is that Urban's two biggest flips from this class, Kyle Dodson and Se'Von Pittman, have done/will do nothing for us.
Weird, one of the guys I worked with when I lived in Tempe was a Travis Green. He is not from Arizona though.
Allen and Kirk were never HS teammates. You may be thinking of Mark Andrews who went to HS with Allen. Allen and Andrews went to Desert Mountain in Scottsdale, while Kirk goes to Saguro in Scottsdale (I only know this because my ex went to Desert mountain).
My guess would be Arizona State. It's his hometown school, and they have a system that should benefit him.
I was coming on here to recommend Vince Flynn. Amazing writer that will keep you glued to the book until you finish.
Just a heads up... you will not get this question answered. The 11W staff will not create or add to rumors.
Because maybe, just maybe the coaches see a lot more than we do and they know the players better than we do?
Sounds to me like you just described Troy Smith.
Are they not both illegal drugs? He did not say they were the same.
edit: way to beat me and have more in depth knowledge, William.
Still a follower of Sidney? If so, I'd love you to contact me.
By this logic, you wouldn't have Dalton throw because he threw an INT twice in the game. You wouldn't give it to Bernard because he was stopped for negative yards earlier in OT.
Not trying to be condescending, but in all seriousness... why do you think the coaches play Wilson more?
But why do the players make so much more than the president? It's because people (like me and you) would much rather pay to go see a game than pay taxes.
National Signing Day
There was an OHSAA Basketball Coaches Clinic. Instead of Thad talking, he opens his practice up to the coaches to watch.
I didn't think Kam had a good practice. Although, you could tell Matta had a lot of confidence in Williams. A few times, Kam passed on a few open shots, and Matta got mad at him calling him a shooter and saying he needs to take those shots. Based on Matta's interaction with Williams, I could definitely see him starting.
I, too, was at the practice. Isn't it crazy how three people can be at the same practice and see three different things? The "one's team" (which in my mind wasn't about putting first team against second team) had Scott, S. Thompson, Loving, McDonald and Amir. Amir played the 5, and Trey played the stretch 4 (which is crazy in my mind). I think Thad wanted Scott and Russell to go against each other for competitive reasons. I fully expect Russell to replace Loving and Lee to replace McDonald.
Thad has said in the past that he wants his five best defenders on the court starting. I think the makeup of this year's team forces him to abandon that, which is why I think they'll play majorly a zone.
I also thought Russell looked real good, but no way did I see a definite one and done player. He definitely looks like a leader though. I didn't think Kam looked that great, but you can tell that Thad has a lot of confidence in him. I remember Williams passing up some shots and hearing Thad yell "Kam, you are a shooter! Shoot!"
Anybody else notice Boals and Paulus kind of going at it with the offense vs. defense?
The bigs didn't shoot too many outside shots. Out of the one drill they did shoot long 15-18 footers, they, as a group, missed about 23 in a row...
I got to see The Basketbucks practice on Sunday as part of the OHSAA Coaches Clinic. Anthony Lee looked like the real deal. He and Trevor Thompson are light years ahead of David Bell. When reading earlier that Bell had been doing so well that he might not redshirt. I was excited to see him practice. As of now, I would be very surprised if he did not redshirt. just by that practice, I would expect the starting 5 to be Scott, Russell, Sam, Lee, and Amir. I expect Thad to go 2 bigs more often this year. Russell also looked like a leader out there. Before and after plays, he, a freshman, was the one telling Amir, the senior, where to go/what to do.
This cannot happen. He can only take another redshirt if it is a medical redshirt. Regular and medical redshirts are pretty much the same if it is the first redshirt being taken. Now, since he was already injured, it would be easier for him to get another medical redshirt if he were to get hurt due to already being injured.
