I suppose it implies he’s seriously considering several other options still. Could also result in another scenario where the local recruit feels it unnecessary to take an official visit here because he lives close, and so he uses them on other schools that maybe get a better opportunity to make a big impression.What does this have to do with having a gopher lean or not
If it were me and I’m leaning toward the Gophers I’m not going to narrow my list down to 7. It would be 2 or 3. Seven says to me I have no idea where I’m going but...”this is silly, I gotta make a decision so I’ll cut my list to 7, maybe that’ll help me figure this all out”What does this have to do with having a gopher lean or not
What about Curry?I'm still not convinced we need a 1 year rental of Suggs and think our dream recruiting group would not include him.
Any three of this group of four including Garcia might be our best option. Could Garcia be a one and done? Maybe. But he looks more like a two year player to me. Carr has three years of eligibility and does not strike me as an early entry candidate. So we could roll out the following next year for the two deep lineup:
PG: Carr, Mashburn, Greenlee (Pretty sure Mash can beat Greenlee out)
SG: Kalesheur, Williams, Walton
SF: Ihnen, Willis
PF: Garcia, Omersa
C: Oturu, Freeman
Sub out Walton or Mashburn for Muscadin and you still look very solid across the board. Plus 3 players all 4* or higher is freaking amazing if we pull it off.
I'm thinking you wrote 300 words to say you agree with my 10,000 mile appraisal of the situation?Maybe I'm crazy, but is it possible that Garcia is still considering seven schools (hence the forthcoming announcement)? It also seems possible that there could be a hierarchy within his top seven. He's eliminated dozens and dozens of schools, and will ultimately choose one, but there are six more that need to be eliminated. Why do we read so much into these decisions? We assume the high school kid is in his room twisting his mustache figuring how best to screw over the schools recruiting him. Maybe he simply hasn't decided yet. By the way, if he ultimately chooses to go elsewhere, it doesn't mean he was never considering the Gophers. (That may be my least favorite take of all.)
That being said, I really hope he picks our favorite team. He feels like the kind of guy that could be an immediate difference maker on both ends. Add Garcia and maybe Suggs thinks twice. Garcia, Suggs and and Walton and we're rolling. Garcia, Walton and Mashburn or Berry or even Muscadin would be amazing, too. Even without Garcia, we seem to have a good shot with some really solid players. We'll all breath easier when the first domino drops.
Yeah, I caught myself typing in circles for a minute there...I'm thinking you wrote 300 words to say you agree with my 10,000 mile appraisal of the situation?
Doesn't look good with him wearing a Butler Basketball shirt! Looks like Butler was also in on that day and he just returned from a second trip to ND.
