27 days till signing week....

fall, still spring though, not too concerned until Ayo, THT and others say no

If we only get Ayo, and the Finnish kid, and get a 19 kid and spring big man I'd be happy. We cant miss on ayo is really the bottom line Hawk. he's an NBA player, we need guys like that

if we have to wait till spring and cross our fingers for players then, might as well put the whole fan base on suicide watch lol

only guy that will wait until spring looks like Nolley, probably Finke.

Ayo and the Viking will be done by end of next week
Ha!! The Viking... I love it!

Nolley's HS coach sheds some light on what transpired...

Quote
Rory Welsh is the head coach at Langston Hughes High School in suburban Atlanta, where the 6-foot-4 Nolley helped lead the team to a state title last spring. In an interview Tuesday morning, Welsh said Nolley made an "emotional decision" coming off his visit to Athens last weekend and rushed an announcement based on a preset timetable.

Quote
The looming FBI investigation into corruption in college basketball is also a factor, Welsh added. That could push a decision until the spring to give it time to shake out.

Interesting article of top 100 impact transfers.  Mark Alstork comes in as number 3  and of course the article doesn't mention him. LOL

I think Evan is hedging after being wrong on Conditt..couple other guys were as well and one went as far as to say his camp misled the staff. Regarding "the viking" (still love that name, philly) he said the staff feels better after the visit than before so I read his comments as he either thinks he isn't coming & doesn't want to say so as our fan base is down & don't need that negativity the eve of Ayo's OV...... or he actually thinks he is comnig but doesn't want to tip anything.  We should know in a couple days either way.

If a kid from Finland chooses Champaign over Tempe, we probably didn't want him in the first place. ;)
