    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.

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

    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.

    As it stands right now, a great player, yet not as good as some of the 5* guys out there.

    However, I feel his ceiling is higher than most, if not all, the other SF's in this class.

    Special weapon/scorer. Fluid outside shot, mid-range game, can drive, score at the rim, and has an unstoppable floater.

    Actually reminds me of Ammo in a way.

    There is a reason he averages 28 ppg with 8 rebs, and number of assists.

    Might be a slow starter at GU, still developing strength (looks stronger than he is, very lean body, decent arms though), yet once he grows into his body, he will be an all-american type scorer for us.

    And we are brilliant at creating opportunities for wings within our offense. A specialty of ours before a number of combo guards and most recently a spot up shooter the last decade or so.

    By Year 2, Julian will be a star.
