well that's just, like, your opinion, man
Title says it all.
“After July, in the beginning of August, I’ll start announcing the teams that made the cut,” he said. “… I was thinking about cutting it to 15 or 10, something like that. I don’t want to cut it too much, but just take it one step at a time.”
Anyone know if he's going into Sports Marketing?
“The basis is (which players are going to be at a particular school) and who is going to be there,” he said. “We talk about the coach’s personality, the players’ personalities. We look at conference play, strength of schedule, that type of stuff. Academics are a huge part, to see if they have the major I want to get into. That’s how we look at it.”
Bluiett said Arizona, Vanderbilt and Memphis are among the schools that have been making more recent contact. He added that the schools making the most contact that have been after him for a while are Indiana, Butler, Purdue, West Virginia, Notre Dame, Illinois, Florida, Michigan and Xavier.
Bluiett said he’s still hoping to take five official visits prior to a decision, but that could be a challenge depending on his schedule. He does plan to sign in November and not wait until the spring.
So is he Blue yet? /obligatory
ESPN has a list of the nations top 10 frontcourts.
Michigan has one of the best rebounders in the country in Mitch McGary. He grabs a rebound every two and a half minutes. he X factor for Michigan is
Glenn Robinson III. Although the plan is to play the 6-foot-7 Robinson at the small forward position, I would not be surprised to see him play some 4. He is an excellent rebounder and has the length and athleticism to match up with most power forwards. The Michigan system is built on attacking matchups, and Robinson at the 4 is a difficult matchup in both ball screens and in isolations on ball reversal.
While I understand that GRIII wants to play his more natural position, SF, I think it's going to be hard to keep Irvin off the floor and it'd be in our best interest to play GRIII at PF.
Didn't see this posted but really interesting story about the increasing practice of holding back basketball prospects in middle school to give them an advantage to become elite prospects. Some examples: Andrew Wiggins, Nerlens Noel, and Shabazz Muhammad. The four top rated prospects in New Jersey in 2014 & 2015 were all held back a year in middle school (including Karl Towns). The other interesting part is after some of these kids become elite, they skip their junior year to reclassify as seniors to get into the NBA earlier (Andrew Wiggins, Nerlens Noel, and Karl Towns).
