    Is ZagMBB following Nix on Twitter? Sometimes this is a good indicator

    No, they are not. Only the 2020 verbal commits in terms of future recruits

    Then I would say you can probably scratch him off the list

    wouldn't scratch him off quite yet, but certainly not trending in the right direction...thornton would be a decent stopgap consolation prize if suggs is on the way.

    It doesn't mean much. That account isn't following Suggs, Holmgren, Kessler, Maxwell, Bittle, Gregg, or Harvey either. And it didn't follow Gilder until he announced for the Zags

    If it's the official Zags basketball account are they even allowed to follow recruits or would it be a violation until they actually sign. I know coaches can't publicly discuss recruits until they sign.

    There is no rule against college coaching following a recruit on social media, in fact, they are also allowed to "like", "retweet", "share", and "favorite" as long as they do not "comment" on a recruit who has not signed a letter of intent


    Go check out the DukeMBB twitter account. You'll see them following many 2020 and 2021 basketball recruits like Suggs, Cade Cunningham, and Jalen Johnson. The ZagMBB account follows Dom and Julian. Neither have signed a letter of intent yet

    Thanks, wasnt sure on the rules. Maybe ZagsMBB waits until they've at least verbally committed to follow recruits. I definitely wouldnt take that account as who we do or don't have a chance at in recruiting though.

    Thanks for your post -- informed, well-written, and leaving me a bit less ignorant than I was previously. This is why many of us keep coming back here.

For now, Burnett’s recruiting is ‘wide open’ and he doesn’t expect to make a decision until next spring."

    Smile Anyone know...

    ...if we're (still) talking to Nix about reclassifying to 2019? Anybody got anything new on him?




    :]
    Yeah, we're "The Champs," uh-huh!

    he's kept his recruiting plans pretty quiet...tight to the vest, so don't expect much news to be coming out until he actually takes action. based on what i've heard, he won't announce anything regarding reclassifying until he announces where he plans to go. probably won't be an rj hampton scenario.

    Perhaps not a leader for Nix anymore with him staying in 2020

    Reading between the lines in the tea leaves and which way the wind is blowing (this is next-level, gratuitous prognostication with a healthy dose of wishful thinking mixed in) that his lack of mention of GU means that the staff has something different planned. Maybe Nix just isn't interested in GU but... I'm hoping this means a backcourt of Suggs and Harris is coming to fruition.

    afraid so.....he's lined up perfectly to replace either cole anthony at unc or the duke freshman as the team's next point guard......

    Interesting tidbit. The attitude that GU can't compete on the recruiting trail is the one Coach Fitzgerald subscribed to. Couple of guys that worked for him disagreed. Had they not... most of the people on this board... wouldn't be on this board.

    Not saying Zags get Nix... but no reason to assume it is impossible either. You fail 100% of the times you don't try at all.
