Anyone have any info on if we are pursuing him?

Looks like a quality player and seems to like us.

"Stanford, Illinois, Louisville, Arizona, Arizona State, USC, Vanderbilt, LSU, Texas A&M, DePaul, St. Johns, Ohio State, Indiana, Cal, Nevada, Marquette and Oregon have all extended official offers. The Chicago-area native also reports interest from Michigan, Gonzaga and Auburn."

"He said Ohio State, Gonzaga and Stanford have been the most active in the last month or so. He also said he wanted to visit Indiana, Gonzaga and Illinois after July as well."

We have been in on him, but it has slowed down a little. Suggs and Strawther are the top choices, I would guess if Suggs falls through (I am betting on him committing to GU at some point) we will be back on Burnett and Nix.

i don't see any conflict with suggs and burnett...nimari is more of a combo guard anyways and few loves to go with two guards that can both run his system. suggs is obviously the priority recruit but burnett is darn good and not necessarily a backup plan.

I agree with you on Burnett, but remember we already have Harris in the fold. Suggs/Harris is the dream, Burnett as of now is not a top priority, but that can change quickly, as he is a stud.
