    haha, i get that. it's interesting what internet things elicit responses from people.

    you wanted to respond to jazz's droopy dog act. i wanted to respond to your assumptions about and oversimplification of thornton's priorities, circumstances, and decision making process and defend a prospective student-athlete from an unsupported assertion that we don't want him.

    all good, man.

    Is there ever a bad time to become a Zag?

    Well nothing new has been posted about Derryck Thornton the last several days so I thought I'd post this to add to the discussion....

    Zach Braziller, sports reporter for the New York Post, Tweeted yesterday that he was told that it's unlikely Derryck Thornton would visit St John`s like was originally the plan. Sounds like a great sign for us...I hope lol

    I can only suspect the waiting has to do with his schooling. Perhaps finalizing his grad transfer status?

    Boston College has landed USC grad transfer Derryck Thornton, source told @Stadium. Nice pickup for the Eagles. Thornton started his career at Duke.

    Zags seem like an obviously better program and fit for a grad transfer PG this season, so maybe this means breaking news on the horizon re: PG this season?!

    Would have liked to have picked this kid up but no worries... Zags will be fine.

    Yeah, I definitely agree. This means we feel good about another PG prospect, ready for 2019. Anyone wanna throw out some names? I'm blanking on the guy who was discussed last week. I know Nico Mannion could be an option, but I think this would be a one year player, so surely a grad transfer PG. Wasn't there a guy speculated about last week, or did I imagine that?

    I wonder if we actually got beat out by Boston College or was this a case of Mark Few not thinking he was a good fit when he visited.....

    It's just really hard to fathom him choosing Boston College over us....Boston College virtually has no chance to go to March Madness while we're a top 10 to 15 team this upcoming season depending on what poll you look at. I'm truly befuddled over this one.
