    Update on Strawther's recruiting. I would guess it's Donny in on him today.

    Caldwell, like the new forum dedicated to the recruits. Thank you. The title, however, escapes me.
    We didn't want the guy anyway.

    A whelping box, also known as a nesting box or whelping pen, is designed to protect puppies during birth (whelping) and early life by keeping them safely contained, protected from cold, and safe from the danger of crushing or smothering by the mother.

    Yeah that is what he is listed as, though he is more a SG.

    I thought it was a good, Bulldog themed way of defining the forum and its intent.

    6'6" on ESPN and Rivals and 6'7" on 247 now. Must still be growing. Good size for 2 or 3.

    Thanks spy & Caldwell.

    That explanation actually triggered an old synapse, which seem to be coming much less frequently these days.

    Ranked 33, 36, 37 on 247, Rivals, and ESPN. Would be a good get.

    Also listed at 190-220 lbs now depending on the recruiting site. Getting stronger.

    Yeah, this kid is for real. Just imagine when his body matures. Hope Few & Co. show him just how much the Zags need him. Looks like a CG. Better offense than Silas M.

    Hate to say it but in the interview it sounds like he likes the UW staff the best. That's a big thing.

    UW is the team to beat for him, the thing that puts us in the conversation is the talent we will have surrounding him. I can't remember exactly how, but he has a connection to UW (Brandon Roy I believe).

    Caldwellzag posted a link on the UCLA - Grant Sherfield thread from Jake Weingarten twitter, and just below where Jake states that GU has reached out to Sherfield, there is this post from earlier today regarding Strawther:
