    Isn't it those of us who sit at our computers gossiping and waiting and hoping that some kid chooses us that creates the circus? If a million parents and coaches are standing by waiting to hear where an 8th grader is going to go ... well, I guess it is newsworthy. I don't blame the 8th grader (who probably worked pretty hard to have a million people waiting to hear his decision), I blame the parents, coaches, fans that care so much they go to message boards and post about some sport 5,147 times.

    When I was in high school, the school did an awards ceremony for the seniors. At the awards ceremony they announced where each student who was going to college was going and how much scholarship money they had received. I was kind of embarrassed, but it was also cool to be recognized in that way for my hard work.

    I think it's Texas A&M with Gonzaga second in line. Texas A&M is the more local school to him and they just sent three kids to the NBA including two bigs. I would be surprised if any kid chose Arizona at this point if they are getting solid advice.

    It sounds like Arizona is one of the top spenders. Only reason not to go there is if they have stopped paying players while the NCAA and FBI are investigating.

    That is a nice way to think of it.

    Well done.

    Wiltijer calling his own presser to KU was my first experience with it. Pretty well soured me on the ridiculousness of it all

    Technically it is the University of Georgia at Athens, otherwise known as UGA, the same name as their mascot.

    Gotta say, not sure I have ever heard of it. Would appreciate a link or two.

    I'd say in that situation thought, you are looking at a Lavar Ball situation where realistically it isn't the kid but likely the parent

    Just so we’re all on the same page, Batman can also correctly be called The Batman.

    Would it be The Batman or would it be OSU style: THE Batman?

    You’ve got me there. If there were a Batman Miami Ohio I would definitely go with the more emphatic THE.

    weirdly, KU is actually "University of Kansas," not "Kansas University." Just like we call University of Colorado CU, and University of Denver is DU.

I think this recruiting class will end up with Brock, Anton, Martynas, Drew, and Pavel, maybe the best recruiting class in school history.
    I have seen a few places where Pavel is actually a 2020 recruit, so I'll take him in 2020 and Issac Johnson in the 19 class coming in 2021.

    November 14th is the EARLY signing period for basketball. It is also the same date for all other high school athletes signing for ANY sport other than football.

    I have seen many instances where a school sets up a couple of long tables & have all the kids sign their letters of intent at the same time. I suspect Drew is going to share this time with some of his classmates, not draw attention to himself.

    Purely speculation on my part.

Honestly, it is no any more self absorbed as the kid posting it on social media. These kids work their tails off to get a D1 offer, they deserve a little bit of praise.
    Uh....He is not LeBron!
