The Gopher Report
2022 5-star guard Skyy Clark gets an offer from his "hometown school" Minnesota
talks with Clark's father, Kenny, about his son's recruiting process and roots in Minneapolis:
from DJ's side, the risk may have been taking a Gophers job if it was offered. He probably knows as much about how hot Pitino's seat is as anyone on this board. Taking a probable one year job is a risk.
As for recruiting to the private schools-- they recruit all students, not just the athletes...
not quite a "can confirm" but in the 3-4 CDH games I saw, it seemed like Conroy is the main Holloman recruiter. Pitino was at the CDH/De Lasalle game also, but that might have been to show the same firepower as Iowa because McCaffery was there also. Pitino, Gabe and Daniel were all sitting together
My all-timer has got to be Devron Bostick- he came in as JUCO player of the year- killed it that summer in the Pulley Pro-Am at the Sal and then could never get out of Tubby's doghouse.
I liked the mention of it being Tubby- but I read too many articles from the Kentucky people before he got...
held the Gophers assist in a season record until this year. If more of the guys mentioned above had careers like Ariel's we wouldn't need this thread.
he spoke to the Golden Dunkers this year- impressive man
I could be convinced either way on keeping Pitino. If --IF- Daniel stays I feel he definitely deserves another year.
and just an observation (and maybe one of the reasons he struggles recruiting Minnesota)-- at the Cretin vs Eastridge game last night-- Greg Gard was there, Fred Hoiberg was...
start your own team. If you play local metro tournaments they run about $275 apiece, get cheap reversible jerseys ($35 each), do the coaching yourself ($0 )- find a cheap practice gym ($300 for the season) - play 6 tourneys- get 10 kids -- that is pretty reasonable per person.
it is do-able.
"Minnesota: “They have two of the five best players in our league, but they have very little depth. "
that line is from a Seth Davis article in The Athletic-- he gives coaches (head & assistant) anonymity and gets comments on teams/players around the country.
The line gets me conflicted-- on...
new rule this year that the 10 second count does not start over on a deflection out of bounds. So the Gophers had under 3 seconds to get it across. It does start over after a timeout- Pitino said in post-game that Marcus mentioned in the huddle to get in inbounds and call a timeout immediately...
