Well, just founfd this a little interesting

  • Hmmmm, just read this on 247 this was at like 9:15 tonight, Article or a piece I should say on Udoka Azubuike. He told the reporters that he was looking to announce AT LEAST he was quoted by the end of January but could be sooner. Now he listed 4 Schools, KU , Flordia State , North Carolina , & Duke. Interesting part is that 247 said it was being informed to them that it was a very tight race between KU & Flordia State, with Flordia State holding a very slim lead, what was also interesting is that they said Duke had just made contact yesterday hmmmmmm? I thought they had been in on him- - if not I would say pretty late now , which in turn brings up another interesting thought- - -If they felt they had Bolden I their sights and in control , then why at this late minute would they be making contact with Udoka? Could it be that they have come to realize that Marques isn’t going to commit to DUKE like so many on here have been sayin he was a lock for DUKE? so now they are scrambling to get Udoka?, Which also means could very well be that Marques indeed lands here afterall, - - - Thoughts guys? and if you had your choice?- - - - who would it be? Bolden- - Azubuike- - -or even seen that possibly still MAKER, a he is planning visits to 4 schools- - KU , Ariz State , Norte Dame, - -Indiana. So of the 3 who would you want to end up with? ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jayballer54 I would vote Bolden…but at this point, either he Azubuike, or Allen would be great. I say no to Maker…too much potential baggage and clearly expects to be OAD. Of course, If we don’t get anyone else and he is available…I might change my mind.

  • There’s still a possibility that he could end up at Florida State tho

  • @Hawk8086

    Maker has improved dramatically over the summer and since the last all-star game when he did not look ready at all. He could be a very good one-year player but I have hunch that getting him past the NCAA process would be like Dialllo part-deux.

  • @jayballer54

    The BIA code breakers have not yet completely cracked the Enigma Recruiting Code used by players in these cryptic lists.

    However, the latest hypothesis being run through a brutal processing routine in BIA’s new quantum dot computer works on this premise:

    Recruit with Petroshoeco Lean X lists two schools contracted with Petroshoeco X, with sequential order indicating rank preference, followed by two premier schools contracted with Petroshoeco Y that act as dummy preferences. The dummy preferences are included to provide face saving and CYA to all producer oligopoly Petroshoecos, Big Agency organizations, NCAA member institutions, and the NCAA for a system that might be in conflict with certain grey regulatory constraints.

    But, of course, we at BIA would neither confirm, nor deny, any of the above transmission, or its contents.

    (Note: all fiction. No malice.)

  • @JayHawkFanToo

    That’s the million dollar question with Maker. It looks like they plan on submitting his info early so that the process can maybe be settled earlier. Anytime a camp is already preparing their stuff in advance is a red flag for me.

    I get that being prepared because of the Diallo situation makes sense I still shake my head at the likelyhood the NCAA doesn’t have a doosey of a time dragging this out. He’s rumored to have an entourage unlike any seen on the prep/hs level. This has Diallo pt 2 written all over it.

  • @jayballer54

    If I had my choice its Bolden. B2B ability and would be the perfect compliment to Bragg. He can score and play immediately and has a chance to have similar a impact to Tyler Davis of A&M. The problem I have is I just don’t view him as likely to land here. I think he’s enamored by playing with other top freshman. That has been my stance from the beginning and I haven’t seen a single bit of info that makes me want to change that view yet. I really hope he does join KU, as well as a transfer PG/combo guard. Jackson is a longshot…

  • @BeddieKU23 If the entourage is that big, I think I would take a pass. But if we don’t get anybody else…he would be hard to pass up. Talent wins.

  • @Hawk8086 said:

    Talent wins.

    May I amend the above as follows:

    Talent half-coached jumps early.

    Talent well-coached starts slow, contributes to winning and jumps early.

    Talent over hyped and/or injured struggles and turns into a 2AD, or more.

    But even without the amendment, your point is well taken.

  • @Hawk8086

    He’s a great talent there’s no question of that.

    But does he fit with Self’s scheme, not likely. He’s a 7 footer that likes to float on the perimeter where he’s skilled but for his size he should be making his living inside out. Maybe that changes when a coach like Self challenges him to stay inside but it’s an unknown.

    With what we’ve dealt with in the past with Diallo and others I’d rather hope we get someone else and let Maker play his 1 yr somewhere else. Either amateur or academic he’s a red flag.

  • I want someone who can bang in the paint.

    I am 100% pulling for Udoka.

  • @drgnslayr “someone who can bang in the paint” BLUEMAN.jpg

  • @JayHawkFanToo exactly, and do we REALLY WANT THAT? ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • I miss TRob’s physicality, and that brief glimpse we got from Embiid, so I’m voting for a paint monster as well: Udoka.

  • @jayballer54 I dunno man. I’ll take anybody at this point.

  • @BeddieKU23 that sounds fine, but there is evidence as far as DUKE anyways which was surpose to be the heavy hitter being reported and even repeated in here by some, people sayin Oh he wanted to play with and or along Giles, people sayin NO chance he is coming to KU definitely solid on DUKE. then low and behold the aticle last night says very close between KU and Fla State with Fla State a slim lead and that Duke had just hollered at him a couple of days ago, which again tells me, even if he was so rock solid DUKE, then why at the last minute they all of a sudden holler a Adulike? what that tells me is, that sure they have been recruiting Marques, but now feel they have lost out on him or not much chance of getting him, that’s why they holler at Adulike, I feel Marques ends up landing HERE have always felt we had a really got shot, just have to wait and see.
