Yeah, just annoyed at our basketball coverage I guess. Seems like there are literally 100x the amount of football recruiting articles.


Kind of felt this way regarding Arkansas for awhile. Seemed like anyone reporting basketball recruiting news was mainly a football guy that just did that on the side but wasn't nearly as dedicated to it.

Thankfully we got a new guy a few years ago and it has really picked up. I honestly don't know how he can make as many tournaments as he does when the Summer basketball cycle is in full swing. He will be in three different states in a weekend just to catch catch at least a game or two at every single one.

re: UA Basketball Recruiting
I think the guy you’re looking for might be named Harper. There are some out there that are trying but without connections into the program, it’s tough to do much.

re: UA Basketball Recruiting
4 of the 9 teams that aren't us are some of the dirtiest programs in the country, and then you have Auburn and FSU who are probably pretty dirty, just not Kansas and LSU level dirty. That's not exactly a list that makes me feel good.

Yep, it's Trendon Watford all over again. I bet we're looking 3rd and 4th options at this point. Can't blame a kid for trying to get money in this economy, though.

Kira committed to us over Kansas, LSU, Okie State, Louisville who were all dirty.

Sexton committed to us over Kansas, Arizona, Oklahoma State, Florida State.

Not every highly ranked in state kid is Trendon Watford.


I feel good about us getting Davison.

I’m sure Hodgson and Pettway aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty so the main thing I worry about is the G League.

Kind of looks like the Bama jersey is by itself while the others are all hanging together.

Yeah, but that was when Avery was HC. May as well cite Mo Williams while we're at it.

Disagree. Avery was our last HC and Mo was 20 years ago. I don't think we will have to worry about guards/wings while Oats is here, the key will be finding a big on a regular basis that can fit the offense like Nate wants.

I want Alex Tchikou about as much as any recruit in the upcoming class.

re: UA Basketball Recruiting
Dude, same. Kid looks incredible and very underrated imo. Won't be an easy get though. He could end up leading his class in legitimate offers.

Him and Jabari Smith Jr. are my two favorites.

Seems like we are still hot and heavy with Tchikou, but have fallen off or out of favor with Jabari.

Yep. I like him more than Bediako. He's the prototypical modern big.

Yeah but are they authorized to make damn strong offers? That's the question. Because you know Wade, Self, and Penny already have.

re: UA Basketball Recruiting
FSU continues to move up the list of programs I'd put in the "when not if" category of getting caught. Their recruiting was typically mediocre with the occasional good class until a couple of years ago. Now they're suddenly in the thick of it for half the elite prospects in the country despite no significant changes within the program.
