@BShark I’m pretty high on Xavier Foster, but if we can get this guy (who I’ve never heard of but seems to be a baller) I would be very happy. Is it just me or has there been a KU recruiting shift, concentrating mostly on four stars rather than a boatload of fives? I think there has been, and I’m all in.
Nope. KU is still recruiting the burger boys as hard as ever.
Added our 8 th commit for the weekend: - Juan Jarrett OLB:
6"2 - - -!90 out of Ohio:
Now I think we all know or should know there are going to be flips/de-commits – lot of time - - a lot of time till early signing, thing is we just got to keep damage control - -keep hitting it -if we lose one have another to take their spot. - -a lot of these to could be a scenario where they were 1st to commit -although having said that I think we hit on most of our primary targets.
the one’s I don’t really want losing is obviously Bryant and Keenan Caldwell
@HighEliteMajor I’m worried about him specifically. When you start seeing one incident piling up after another, that’s a real big sign of a substance abuse problem. I always felt like JJ played mad, and it makes me wonder if he doesn’t have some emotional issues that are playing out with the drugs and the alcohol.
I am really looking forward to this season. It is not often where a team has 12 scholarship players and all 12 can play, a good problem to have. It’s going to be interesting to see how it all plays out.
@KUSTEVE I’ll add to your group there. I don’t see Jalen as a 3 yet. I need to see it play out. We have four terrific perimeter players in Dotson, Moss, Agbaji and Garrett. there are 120 minutes per game there. The math is easy. A fifth guy could get some time. My view is that McBride for appx. 10 is most likely if he’s not overwhelmed. But I don’t know.
But if Self is flexible with his offense, and Wilson is a 4, we could be 4/1 like last season when he’s at the 4 and it’s much the same difference. I’m just not convinced the kid will be a significant minutes guy yet.
Did I mention how much I love this roster? And the competition? Maybe my favorite so far – though 2012’s tight rotation, KY sealing the deal, TT playing great, EJ, Releford, Withey, TRob, and a little Teahan as needed (right Purdue), will be hard to beat.
I’m with you man. We had several things fall our way this off-season, (Dok and Dotson staying, Silvio eligible, landing three point shooters) that I didn’t think would happen. Yeah, Michigan State is going to be good and Kentucky and Louisville will be too but who else has our upside and overall talent? I don’t see one. Just like every year, we’ll probably start slow, look a little rough in November and December, folks will be overly critical and say we’re not good, then Self will have 'em rolling come late February early March. Just like he does most years. Definitely potential to only be a three loss team.
