    Tennessee is on the rise, Rick Barnes is a great coach.

    Not saying that separates them, but should put them in the conversation.

    I would agree. I think Kentucky has a shot as well.

    This one seems pretty simple. There is a top 2021 pg from Tennessee (I believe) that is considering Tennessee. Paolo and said pg have mentioned playing together. If the pg goes to a tennesse, then they have a chance with Paolo, otherwise their chances are nominal. We do hear about the “package” type deal often and usually they do not come to fruition. Kentucky is the bigger concern here as of now.

    Thanks for the info. The devil is in the details.

    That makes perfect sense about the package deal, thanks. So fingers crossed that pg picks a school Paolo isn't considering!

    Gonzaga's Mark Few was in Seattle this evening to see Paolo Banchero's O'Dea team take on West Seattle in a
    Metro League tournament game. O'Dea defeated West Seattle 77-55. Paolo Banchero did not disappoint
    scoring 33 points in the victory.

    Few and Mich were there and on one of the dunks Paolo had Few's reaction was priceless, as you could see him saw WOW. Paolo went off in front of them as he had a double double and showed why he a top 5 recruit in 2021. The kid could step on the court and play for this team, he is a flat out stud. Last night was impressive.

    The ball handling and passingh is so smooth and impressive for a guy that big.

    I know this will come across as an old man shouting "back in my day..." but were 17yr old kids ever this big and mature 20 or 30 or 40 years ago? I don't mean this tall, I mean this much grown into their built and super strong frame and with coordination levels above those of a floppy footed puppy? Paolo looks like mature adult.

    I think the answer is pretty clearly "no". The amount of focus that we have on nutrition and age-appropriate weight-training and conditioning has made a huge difference in the kind of bodies some of these young men come into college with.

    "As far as his recruitment, he was down to Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, Duke, Georgetown, Baylor, Washington, Gonzaga, and Memphis."

    "Despite being one of the programs aiming at five-star targets, Memphis hasn’t been in contact as much with Banchero. On the other hand, other programs have been sending staff out including Gonzaga who sent head coach Mark Few to watch him last night."

    I don’t know it has been mentioned here, but he states in the article that he will makes his college choice prior to his senior year, and he affirmed that he is not reclassifying.

    Calipari in attendance tonight. 36 for Paolo’s AAU teammate Nolan Hickman. Looks like Paolo scored all his points in the first 3 quarters, including 18 in the 2nd. Not sure how much he played in the 4th.

    Does it seem like the Puget Sound sort of punches above its weight class (population level) when it comes to elite basketball recruits? Maybe it's simply proportional to how many kids live there and go to those schools, but there have been quite a few elite high schoolers lately.
