Perfect fit for him.

Of his list of offers and schools, Purdue and us are the best fit of style/use/history.

Boilermakers a "hot" program/team right now. Pun intended. Been Top-10 type team last 2 years too.

Although, Tournament success hasn't followed. They went to S16 last season, yet haven't been past 1st Rd previously in over a decade.

Our Tournament success still vastly UNDERrated. Final 4 last yr, Sweet 16 yr before, Elite 8 yr before that, 8 Sweet 16's since 2000, etc.

Are we sure this is legit? I mean the more I think about it, the more far fetched it seems. What team is going to host a recruit a few days before their march madness tourney game? We wouldn't host a recruit now, 100% focus on the tourney. This seems a bit fishy to me.

It is under 350 miles from Purdue University to Detroit.

Maybe Drew will ride the bus and see how fun it is to be 7'+ and take the bus!

But three days before your first round game? I've gotta think that the staff is 100% focused on the game, not some high school junior wanting to check out the facilities. I checked Purdues most active board and there is zero mention of Timme visiting.

I can see why Coach Painter is recruiting him. For one Purdue is one of the few teams in the nation who utilizes big men. Also, Timme just looks like a prototypical Boilermaker big man in videos.

Wow, that just seems insane for the team to be hosting a recruit three days before your tournament begins. All of your focus should be on the games at hand not trying to convince a high school junior to come play for you. Thank you for posting that by the way

They play a Tournament game in 2 days...and they are hosting recruits?

I assume a player host, coaches dinner, meetings, etc.

All focus, effort, energy, attention should be on their upcoming game, right?

No wonder we have been to double the amount of Sweet 16's, triple the Elite 8's, & a Final 4 compared to them since 2000.

Preparation is paramount.

This seems like an unnecessary distraction the more I think of it, yet also tells me Timme is likely very high on Purdue.

Maybe he just wants to watch em work? Very odd timing

thespywhozaggedme
03-13-2018, 11:29 AM
Just as I suspected, it's an unofficial visit, i.e walking around the campus with his parents. That makes a lot more sense, no team is going to host a recruit a few days before the tourney.

It might be a fantastic time to host a recruit. The excitement, energy and focus with the players is probably at a high level. Students are probably extra supportive and excited. The campus probably has more Purdue basketball stuff in the windows.

I have no idea how much time the staff actually spends with a recruit, but I doubt the head coach is holding his hand and showing him around for 8 hours.

We're listed here as offered. I thought Rivals got subsumed into 247 anyway, didn't know it was still going on?

By no means do I think Gonzaga is the favourite here but they've definitely offered.

Not trying to stir the pot but I would think TCU and UT most probably have the inside track on this youngster...like you said, parents will get to see over 50% of his games in person as opposed to watching him play on TV if he went to GU...

Disagree...he's been on campus for a visit, more than some of the other recruits we've been going after. Problem is, he blew up during his junior year, averaging 20+ PPG and 16 RPG. He's worth pursuing, and that's what the coaches continue to do.

We know about 5% of what is going on behind the scenes. We put bigs in the League. Other than Bamba who is a freak of nature, Texas teams haven't been, at least recently. Which is more important? Getting to see your kids play in person more, or developing them to having a legitimate shot at playing basketball for a career. That being said, Smart is an effective recruiter and I wouldn't bet against him.

Does Timme fit the new drive and cut offense we are playing now? I mean, there is always room for a Jon Brockman style player in any system IMHO, but would he want to go to an offense that doesn't fit his strengths?

Based on the one game I saw, Drew is a perfect fit for the way the Zags play, and he knows it, judging by his comments. He's Tillie with a nonstop motor. He's used to being double & triple teamed, showing an ability to pass out of trouble far superior to that of J3 and Tillie. His 16 rpg shows that he's not afraid of mixing it up inside. Drew is a team player, willingly dishes the ball to an open teammate.

Secondly, how on Earth can you suggest Gonzaga isn't in contention here? Him and his family traveled quite some distance to come all the way to Spokane on an unofficial visit. GU doesn't get a whole lot of those outside of locals.

They probably don't get him - based on odds alone - but that doesn't preclude him from being a very legitimate talking point around here.

i feel a little dirty, but i agree with spy on this one. i think, objectively, that there's plenty of reason to believe that we have a chance at timme (tho he'll probably end up somewhere else, as most recruits do numbers-wise)-- and therefore this is a good, interesting, and appropriate convo to have and i hope to continue to receive updates on his development and recruiting.

if you're really posting on timme's thread because you're sick of all the other threads/posts where players are brought up without a meaningful link to the school, then i'd just say you probably won't get so much push-back if you pick your spots a little better :)

I'm actually with realtydog, on this one. I find little reason to believe that Timme is going to be a player that we have a shot at. Would be nice, but I just haven't seen a compelling argument. Having *taken* a visit, means that a visit was taken. They could vary well have seen other places, and/or not seen what they felt was needed. Or it was far too early in the process to have the impact need, and so on, and so forth. Unless we're somehow in his top schools when the time comes, I think this is one that isn't happening.

There is 99% of conjecture we should overlook on these boards when it comes to recruits/g-transfers/u-transfers/prospects, yet don't count Timme out.

"on paper" he looks to be headed to TCU, A&M, Oklahoma, Texas, et al, yet I know he's high on Gonzaga. It may just be too far away from home, Spangler style, yet at least he's a big fan. Pun intended.

I prefer the pipe-dreaming about recruits over reading that people who are against conference realignment are disingenuous, naive, shameful, and illogical persons. (Read: please spare the insults and emotive rhetoric to try to make a point). I’d much rather weed through extra info than be insulted regularly.

The recruit stuff also gives me players to pay attention to during the off-season and during play. I will be much more interested to watch Texas to see how Kemaka Hepa does, for example. As another example, Spangler gave me reason to root for Oklahoma.

I've had only one 'nonstop' flight to Dallas from Spokane so far ..... and it stopped in Abilene first (nasty T-storms in Dallas). Ended up missing our connecting flight and got a day behind on a trip to Argentina. Think I'll try a different nonstop route next time.
