Figured it was time for one.
Do you think the losses of Reed and Royal will help with recruiting and the basketball program in general?
I don't think it will help much with Reed..he would have been a Senior next year and could have had some impact off the bench.
Royal will open up a spot for the future and it really is better for both sides as Royal will be a better fit at George Mason.
What other players is Tech going after and what are the chances Tech would land them?
What class? 2014?
I make no bones in stating I don't care much for CBG, and I haven't witnessed anything from his teams that show me he's anything more than mediocre, however, consecutive successful campaigns and my opinion can change. With that said what is the offensive system that he is attempting to implement? I find the current offense to be slow, grinding, and HORRIFIC to watch. Is that a function of the talent he has on the team or is that just simply his system?
Who do you think would be the best fit here Eric? And who do you think we land?
Any read on Hill? I considered him an eventual lock for Uconn, but they've gotten another wing commit and have Purvis transferring from NCSt. Might we be able to swoop in and land a blue chipper?
I don't know all of these players but some have really cool names!
Do you think poole or Jorgensen will start?
Cofer is a huge target and need in the next class...I think GT has a great shot.
Reed needs some work with grades... if he keeps it up GT could be a factor with him.
Craig likes GT as well.
Its still early on.
He's not totally unrealistic.
Will be a uphill battle though.
I will guess Poole.
I like Jorgenson a ton though.
Per twitter, we're in Gant's final 6:
Coast 2 Coast Hoops @Coast2CoastHoop
2014 Southern Stampede (GA) forward Jakeenan Gant lists Alabama, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Florida State, NC State and UConn.7:17 AM - 17 May 2013
Good news since Cofer seems to be leaning to TN if you believe the interweb rumors.
New to the forum, but I thought I'd make my first post one about basketball.
Top targets IMO:
Jakeenan Gant - Big time recruit, been injured most of summer, I think that we stand a very solid chance at gaining his commitment.
Ahmed Hill - Said to be a package deal with Gant, but I don't see that happening. Ends up elsewhere IMO.
Tadric Jackson - Looks like GT and UGA according to his most recent update. Hoping that BG can seal the deal. Underrated recruit IMO.
Leron Black - BG is still recruiting him (watched him in Orlando yesterday), but lots of high-major programs to compete with. Long shot IMO.
Trayvon Reed - His stock has cooled a bit, and he has to pick up his grades and keep them there.
Jabari Craig - I think that we end up with his commitment. Agile big man with ability to knock down midrange J.
Sean O'Mara - Seems to be a back-up plan, but he is on the radar. Possible visit this summer.
Jaylen Brown - 5 star guard out of Wheeler. He'll be a top 10 player in his class. Lots of positive things to say about GT. Been recruiting him since 8th grade.
Doral Moore - His stock has exploded recently, plays for Winfred Jordan ATL Express. Good connections there, GT has offered and has been following.
Daniel Giddens - 5 star teammate of Brown at Wheeler, long shot IMO.
Noah Dickerson - His stock is taken off after good showing with GA Stars. Space eater with excellent footwork. Gonna be a good one. Hoping we can pick him up.
Thanks for the updates.
Good to see you join connell62. Thanks for the updates. They are much appreciated.
Here's a link to a site that usually has some good info especially on local (Atlanta-area) HS hoops action.
The guy's update discusses Moore ('15), Gant and A. Hill a bit.
Maybe Hill will drop out of contention for the blue blood offers and end up on the Flats?
