Maybe not willing to kiss their arse? If a local player development program is intentionally steering kids away from the U then it needs to be replaced with another organization or leadership! I don’t expect them to “push” kids to go to the U, but they need to be fair for the sake of the all the kids that grow up in the state. I can see some kids being enticed by the bright lights of a Duke or such, but what is happening is much more than that.Both? Pitino if you make me pick one or the other, but I have no basis for any of it. .
Did not have a offer from UW.
I believe they already have 3 commits in that class already (check 247) and signed crowl and carlson who are similar players for 2020 can understand why they didnt offerGross on Crowl, but I respect Gard and expect him to prove me wrong . Was hoping you'd share Some names for Treytons class.
Signs like a leader to me and is the type of player that Fleck would want rowing!STrib: For Gophers recruit Treyton Thompson, home state had major appeal
He became the first Minnesotan to commit to the Gophers as a high school junior since former Cretin-Derham Hall standout Daniel Oturu three years ago. Oturu’s class in 2018 was the last with local recruits.
“They didn’t have a really good reputation of getting Minnesota kids,” Thompson said. “I kind of wanted to change that, change the culture of it and help the Gophers and myself. Kind of leading a path for future people to stay home.”
The Gophers finished a disappointing 15-16 last season, but that didn’t change Thompson’s mind. He picked the Gophers after being offered scholarships by Iowa, Texas Tech and Oklahoma.
One major factor was proximity, especially since his family has to make a 10-hour trek to see him play for La Lumiere and can’t watch every game. He plans to return there for his senior season.
“There was no reason I needed to go away for college,” Thompson said. “Minnesota had everything I wanted.”
The next Minnesota basketball standout with plans to stay home and play for the Gophers spent this high school season hundreds of miles away attending prep school.www.startribune.com
How does this apply to Treyton Thompson?Quick, tough point point guard. Understands how to play, how to control a game. Every aspect of his game has taken off. Incredibly well coached.
Not at all. Saw the 2021 Thompson thread and not a 2021 thread. I did not mention UW. When i want to bring up UW to make a point i do so. Not the case here.How does this apply to Treyton Thompson?
“Picking up steam on Tyrese Hunter.” Does this refer to Minnesota’s efforts recruiting this young man? Please tell me you aren’t referencing Wiscy.
As a whole it has gone wild. Not sure with the Gophers as we have a tough sell for 2021 but it is one of our offers with a great deal of effort.Do you mean Hunter's recruitment is generally picking up steam, or do you mean there is something picking up specific to the Gophers and Hunter? Potential commitment soon? Or not that much steam?
Well, that's kind of disappointing. Just telling us that general recruiting is picking up on a highly-rated kid from Wisconsin within a Treyton Thomspon thread is a bit strange. I thought you maybe had something specific to Minnesota.As a whole it has gone wild. Not sure with the Gophers as we have a tough sell for 2021 but it is one of our offers with a great deal of effort.
