re: UA Basketball Recruiting
I'd never heard of it before, but that makes sense.

I am feeling more and more pessimistic on our chances with Davison though.

Another part of me also thinks getting Cardet is becoming more and more of a must. A guy like him for two-three years at 6'6" playing PG with his defensive potential could be better long term for us than a single season of Davison.

I still think there is a good chance that Davison goes the G League route if and when he gets the offer.

If he signs with us it won't be for free. Just look at who all is heavily involved. Wade, Penny, and Sweaty Bruce is as shady a collection of coaches as you can find. It's Watford 2.0, but no one wants to admit that for whatever reason.

Exactly, I hope we're in it for the Whitt kid out of NC.

He’s enrolling mid year now. Slater thinks it’ll be Nebraska.

re: UA Basketball Recruiting
If Pettway strikes out on Jd and others do you see Oats looking in another direction after the season?

I've wondered the same. It's an interesting question and i'm really not sure.

If Pettway moves on, I hope we get an international guy.

Pett better pack his bags if he misses on JD after missing on Watford. That’s unacceptable.

Yeah, it's definitely his fault that he couldn't magically pull $200,000 out of his ass.

Who's our backup option if JD goes elsewhere?

I also agree on Pett. JD grew up an Alabama fan, and I'm pretty sure he had Collin Sexton as his header on Twitter for the longest time.

I’ve seen it mentioned that Cardet has the skills to play PG.

Class of 2022 Fray Nguimbi has been drawing the attention of numerous high-major schools.

The 6-foot-8, 200-pound small forward from First Love (PA) Academy, picked up his most recent offer from St. John’s (Sept. 9).

“I know they’re in the Big East Conference,” Nguimbi said by phone Tuesday evening. “Since I just got the offer recently, I don’t really know too much about them, but I’m definitely going to talk more with them.”

Nguimbi also holds offers from TCU, Pitt, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Samford, Rutgers, Dayton, Stetson, Iowa State, Alabama, Louisiana-Monroe, Little Rock, South Florida and Southeastern Louisiana.

He says Pitt, Georgia Tech, South Florida and Cincinnati have made him a priority.
He broke down each school:

Cincinnati: “They just called me to check in today, ask about my day. They’ve also talked to my coach.”

South Florida: “They say I can come over there and they’re going to help me with my basketball career and my education. They really want me to go there. The head coach texts me almost every day, sending me pictures of them working out.”

Pittsburgh: “They text me almost 3-4 days per week. They send me videos and say they really want me to be a part of their family.

Georgia Tech: “They said they like my game, they like the game I play. They want me to come there and be a part of the family. After COVID, I might go there to visit both [Pittsburgh and Georgia Tech]. We’ll go from there.”

Originally from the Congo, Nguimbi grew up around the sport.

“I started playing basketball when I was like six or seven years old,” he said.

In 2018, Nguimbi left the Congo to attend West Oaks (FL) Academy.

“It’s different,” he said. “In America, most of the teams push the ball. At first, I had to learn to run fast during the games. We barely called plays back home, but here, coach calls a lot of plays.”

This August, Nguimbi transferred from West Oaks to First Love (PA) Academy.

“The coaches here at First Love have been pushing me to go hard every day,” Nguimbi said. “Since I moved from Florida, coaches have been calling my phone. They were calling before, but since I moved here, it’s coming more and more.”

Nguimbi says he’s placing a high emphasis on education when making his college decision.

“I’m not looking for a school that wants me only because I play basketball,” he said. “I need a school that likes me as a person, not just because I play basketball. I need a school that will help me with my basketball skills and help me get my education.”

Nguimbi has no timetable for a decision, but says he’s been talking with coaches at Memphis, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Georgia Tech about taking visits.

This summer, Nguimbi placed a high emphasis on improving his shot and his ball handling skills.

I feel like my shot has gotten better. I’ve been shooting every day. My handles are also getting better,” he said. “I’ve just got to keep pushing. I can’t wait for the season to begin. I’m so excited.”

re: UA Basketball Recruiting
Other than being able to land players from Alabama, what else does Pettway bring to the table coaching wise? I ask because if he’s no longer landing the high major talent from the state (for whatever reason), could someone be more valuable to Oats? I like Pettway and as long as he can land talent I hope he stays, but I’m also not so enamored with him that I think he should be grandfathered as a Bama assistant until the end of time

I'm not trying to argue his merits as a member of the coaching staff one way or another. If we were to mutually part ways after this season I wouldn't have a problem with it. It would probably be good for his career anyway. I just have a problem with the narrative that losing Watford is somehow Pett's fault when anyone with a clue knows that he was paid a significant amount of money to go to LSU.

re: UA Basketball Recruiting
I don't think i've ever seen anyone really comment on Pett's true abilities as a coach or teacher of the game. He's been on the staff for almost 10 years now and all I can really remember hearing about him is his ability to recruit and connect with players.

I was definitely happy when it was announced that he was being retained by Oats, because I felt like his familiarity with the program and region would be a big help to a staff coming from the Midwest/Northeast.

I don't know if it should be after this upcoming season or the season after that, but I really think it could be beneficial for the program and for Pett himself if he could land a new job. We could inject some fresh blood into the program and Pett would have a chance to grow as a coach outside of Tuscaloosa. I'd like to see Pett be a mid major HC at some point for a program like Troy. He could even go to Alabama State and be Mo's Associate Head Coach.

I love Pett and he's done a lot of good for the program, but 10 years on a staff with basically no hope of ever being the HC seems unusual.
