Courtesty of Madness:

OK, I went out and found a link of 2013 JUCO rankings. There are still some bigs on this list that are undecided:

Anyone know anything on:

Ocatvious Ellis 6'9 (kicked off Cincy team for nightclub brawl)
Kevin Thomas 6'9 (http://www.gopherhole.com/news_artic...rrer_id=334835) former Texas commit
Nkosi Ali 7'0 (Minnesota looking at him as well as Thomas) 8.5 rebounds per game

Looks like Madness' links don't work. I remember Kevin Thomas as a skinny sg/sf outta Toronto, looks like he grew some. Pangos knows him well.

Thanks Spy!

From Twitter it looks like tons of schools are in on Nkosi Ali...not seeing Gonzaga as being one of them. (Pitt/Kansas St/Minny/Murray St)

I want "The Cincinnati Brawler."

Maybe we could get Michael Buffer to do the K2 intros!!

That's news to me. Looks like he signed today.

I had mentioned Kevin Thomas a few times on this board. Ex-Texas signee that had to go the JUCO route. By attending a dodgy prep-school for a year he screwed his transcripts and eligibility. This happened to quite few Canadian players in the 2008-2010 period.( Braeden Anderson, Sim Bhullar as well).

Pangos has played with him in the past.

Anyways - I always thought he was a very good prospect, way under the radar. Not a huge point scorer at Palm Beach State, but a 6'9 PF, with highly efficient offensive states, aggressive rebounder, and huge hustler (blocks and steals stats).

But by the looks of the schools he was down to - Troy, St. Bonnie, UNT, W. Kentucky - I got the impression he wanted to go somewhere we he could establish himself in the offense and play a major role. Minnesota, Nebraska and a few other higher programs were after him but he chose the other path.
