I like El Amin or Loewe, although neither strikes me as a PG in their videos. I don't see a need for both with the current roster projection. I like the description of Shelton but I have not watched video. I like Akenten, he is a must have based on what I have watched so far. I like Dillon, he reminds of Hurdle but maybe not as explosive at this time. As a fall back I like Chevalier.
I don't know much about Bell. He is listed anywhere from 6'5" to 6'8". So what is he and what does he do on the court.
So El Amin, Shelton, Akenten and Dillon with two transfers seems like a solid class to me.
From watching the recruiting sites they have been very active and going after some recruits that are heavily recruited. Would be nice to land some of them but I do like them going after higher recruits.
Of the six open spots, I think commits from El-Amin, Akenten, Coleman, Knight, Chevalier and Bell would be the best attainable recruiting class. Thoughts?
You are 3 of 6 so far with 3 more to go.
I like the athletic ability of El-Amin, although all of his tape makes him look like a scorer more than a play maker but it is tough to tell on highlight videos. Any word on GB's chances?
Akenten has an SMU offer now, I would love to see a cut down list from him to know where GB stands. This guy looks like a game changer for GB if they get him.
Is GB still looking at Manny Patterson? He is an inside only player at this point but I think GB needs another big guy out of these 6 scholarships and he is the best name associated with GB.
Beachler and Berhow are very interesting prospects to me. They have good looking shots and good size and athletic ability for their position. I would take either of these guys.
Teyvion Kirk has GB in his top 7 and is teammates with Bell. I didn't see many highlights of him shooting but I saw a lot of play making and attacking the hoop. It would seem like him or El Amin but not both based on position and the roster moving forward.
Just a random thought but I am curious why nothing from Florida is on the radar. Is the lack of recruiting budget hurting the chances of that happening? I like the focus on the upper Midwest but with Linc having worked down there for so many years I would have guessed an occasional name might have surfaced.
