    An ACC and Big 12 offer. Nothing to sneeze at. Happy to have him!

    I hear that he is described as a skilled but hard nosed player and defensive stopper... Can't have enough of those.

    Yeah... he is actually Pitino's lowest-ranked recruit since Ghaston. Although I will say that his tape looks good, he has other P5 offers, he is a very intelligent young man and his strengths are as a defensive stopper and I really trust Jeter is his evaluation of defensive talent.

    Time will tell whether this is a reach or hidden gem that the staff feels they can get a lot out of. I choose to take the optimistic approach that the staff is not reaching because they have had other opportunities to take a reach player and decided not to, I think they beleive this kid at the very minimum will be a force on defense, if he develops some offense, he can be a solid 4 year player for us.

    This absolute reeks of Pitino wanting to avoid the embarrassment of being shut out on signing day with 4 open scholarships. The "offer" from Georgia Tech was from his Sophomore year of high school and they haven't been involved for a long time. 247 is the only site to claim a Texas Tech offer and I can't find a date on that one and neither Rivals nor Verbal Commits lists a Texas Tech offer. The Gophers offered this kid on his visit last weekend. What was he doing the weekend prior with signing day less than two weeks away? Visiting Pepperdine. There are 30 basketball commitments to B1G universities right now and Tre Williams ranks 30th out of 30.

    We aren't on Plan C, or even plan L on recruiting this cycle, we are on plan Z. Obviously, you hope for a miracle and this kid turns out to actually be good but the Gophers track record with kids who aren't recruited anywhere else is absolutely horrific. Names like Gaston Diedhiou, Maverick Ahanmisi, Chip Armelin...Even kids like Jamir Harris and Ahmad Gilbert had better recruiting profiles but were absolute non-factors at this level.

    Stating a fact does not make someone a troll. I personally like this recruit as i saw him twice. I am personally biased to great defensive high character kids.

    Reeks, eh? Strong words.

    It's nice to have ridiculous depth and be able to take a player who we don't need to start or contribute in Year 1
