    It seems to me that if he was going to play football, his first official visit wouldn't be to a school that only has basketball. Just my opinion.

    Me thinks there will be a nighttime scrimmage with all the usual suspects. What a week for Zag-Nation.

    That is an excellent point.

    Maybe I'm inferring something that isn't there but the layout of that picture with the ? mark on the bball jersey and downcast look of the football plauyer intimates to me a sign that he is moving past football and focusing on basketball. Again, maybe I'm crazy but that's how the picture looks to me.

    And if you're a 5 star basketball and 4 star football recruit, it'd be kinda crazy to continue with football. I mean I get it, if that's truly your biggest passion but there is just so much more risk. So much more wear & tear on your body and risk of career ending injury. Less guaranteed money at the highest pro level. So many fewer opportunities to play professionally. If you don't make the NBA, you can still set yourself up for life in the Euroleague. You can't do that in the CFL unless you're Doug Flutie. And the CFL is only other game in town outside of the U.S. You can make real money in China, Japan, Australia all throughout Europe.

    Holy cow you read more into that picture than I did. You looked at it like a Rorschach test. LOL but you do make some really good points in the rest of your post. I hope you're correct.

    Just rewatched this video. Safe to say if Jalen Suggs chooses Zags, he will immediately be the most athletic PG in Zag history...w all do respect to Pargo. He’s 6’5”, quick and loves to dunk and block shots. Video shows a happy passer and great shooter. The newbie bigs will have a year to adapt to D1 hoops before Mr Suggs would arrive on campus. He would be coming in D1 ready. Wowser!

    Reminds me of a combination of Perkins and Norvell.

    Real deal.

    Never thought I’d say this about a junior in high school...Mr Suggs could lead us to a Natty one day.

    I will go out on a limb and say it: if Jalen comes, given the other players arriving this fall and barring injuries, we will be in the FF in the spring of 2021. He is THAT good.

    One thing I noticed is that Suggs is extremely sound fundamentally. Great dribbling, footwork and shooting form. He has been very well coached.

    I must say, I can't speak to his defense as these clips never show the players playing defense. Anyone got any insight into that for Suggs?

    Interesting tidbit about Jalen Suggs is that Terrell Suggs of the Baltimore Ravens is a relative (2nd cousin)

    I wasn't saying that as a negative. If you took Sr Perkins and soph Norvell and combined their best attributes, that would be a top 10 guy
