    Yeah, it's been a while since one of our insiders chimed in about this particular player.

    He did mention that he wanted to visit St. Johns after us.

    True. But many didn’t expect him to make it there.

    At any rate, no details about the visit itself.

    Saint johns is a dumpster fire. Hard to envision him going there.

    Interesting that he is still at GU on his birthday (which is today, May 30th). I though he was scheduled to visit Tuesday and Wednesday.

    Good sign?

    The way kids announce their intentions these days they may find out faster following him on social media.

    He posted on Instagram this week of him in the Kennel. Was on his story. Keep your eyes on social media this weekend.

    Just FYI I never use this computer, but it was signed in so I thought I would say hi and keep an eye out for a VC this weekend into early next week at the latest.

    We’ve heard next to nothing about how the visit went and now the weekend has come and gone. Just repeating the obvious, but it seems unusually quiet given that it’s a high value target.

    If, during his visit, the staff and the team members felt that he wasn't a good fit so he wasn't offered, why would that be bad news?

    when you start from a flawed premise (if we had offered, they'd have accepted/announced by now), it sure leads to some silly conclusions.

    To some people, all news is bad news.

    Disagree completely and whole heartedly.

    The only recent “news” is Post #108 which IMHO is VERY, VERY good news.

    My premise was "If he wasn't offered".

    How is not bad news a silly conclusion?

    the premise i was referring to:

    maybe you've backed off the above, but since you've posted similar in multiple threads about multiple players, i figured you really meant it.

    anyway, yes you couched it with an "If"... but the conclusion i was referring to was the jump from not having heard anything to we didn't want him and didn't offer, which isn't supported by any other info i've seen or heard-- but which you presented as though it was the likely/default explanation.

    but you're right, taken at face value and in a vacuum, that post holds together fine. i just think you took the wrong fork in the road a step earlier, leading to that post.

    You are right about the first post. Sorry. I still feel like IF he had been offered he would have accepted. I might have been wrong, but given a choice of a Top 10 team and going to the dance and a dumpster fire at St Johns, it just seems that there is only one choice.

    The question about that is, was he offered or not, and we won't know until someone speaks one way or the other.

    I was really just responding to the 'no news is bad news' post from Jazz, and trying not to be insulting about it.

    I highly doubt that ZAGMBB started following him on Twitter and Instagram shortly after discovering we not only didn’t offer but didn’t want him. They don't follow a lot of former recruiting targets except Kasun.
