I hope we can land him, and I really hope he can flourish in our system. Because that would be good for us in the immediate future, but would also be a fantastic recruiting pitch as far as player development goes.

re: UA Basketball Recruiting
I don't see it, he left Texas Tech because he wasn't starting. Who would he start over for us next year? I don't see him starting over JD, Primo, or Shackleford. He might be the 5th or 6th guard in our rotation next year if he came here.

re: UA Basketball Recruiting
He's seriously considering Illinois and they have a couple of freshman guards who are playing really well this year. Playing time was probably part of the reason, but playing 15-20 minutes for a team that's top ~10 in tempo is a lot different than playing 15-20 minutes for a team that is nearly outside of the top 300 in tempo. Reese is the closest minutes comparison we have, and he takes nearly two more shots a game than Burnett did at TTU despite being a forward in a guard-centric system.

re: UA Basketball Recruiting
Cubelo and Miller are good freshmen guards but they lose the three guards that get the most minutes, Dosunmu, Frazier, and Williams. Seems like there is a pretty clear path there for him to start and get 30+ minutes a game.

re: UA Basketball Recruiting
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What does the extended dead period mean?

quote:

On Wednesday afternoon, the NCAA announced an extension of the current dead period for Division I schools that will last through the end of May. The dead period started last March when the pandemic took over the country and has been in place since then. So, what does the extended dead period mean for college basketball?

Let’s start with the immediate recruiting impact. The current dead period cut out a whole travel season for college coaches hoping to evaluate prospects all over the country with their travel teams. Instead, they were forced to evaluate prospects via livestreams at events all over the country. In many cases, coaches were never able to see these prospects in person to get an accurate assessment of height or other characteristics that are important in the evaluation process. The dead period getting extended essentially means many schools will be signing a class of prospects they never watched or even met in person.

What that means is many schools are being tighter on offering scholarships to prospects in the 2021 class. The likelihood of a one-time transfer rule going into place, along with the NCAA granting a free year of eligibility for all athletes, means schools are less likely to sign prospects from the high school ranks and more likely to take a transfer this off-season.

At the highest level of the sport, don’t expect to see much change for the rest of this recruiting cycle. With prospects that would typically sign at mid-major or low-major Division I schools, you will likely see more of those prospects either do a post-grad year at a prep school or just go start their college career at a junior college.

That ultimately means the impact of the dead period will bleed into the 2022 class. Aside from the majority of the class having no experience of playing in front of college coaches, they will be competing against a bigger pool of prospects for those scholarships, especially when you factor in that schools can retain their current players for the extra year.

It does appear the NCAA is working toward hopefully ending the dead period at the end of May. What it looks like beyond that is anyone’s guess, but for the sake of the class of 2022 I certainly hope there is some sense of normalcy, with college coaches back in gyms to evaluate.

re: UA Basketball Recruiting
I know we didn’t have room for him but Ive watched a few New Mexico games this year Saquan Singleton is a good player. He had 11 assists in a game the other night then in a different game recently he had 10 rebounds. He reminds me a bit of Herb Jones in that he can do about everything well.

Alabama remains on the hunt for additions to its 2021 recruiting class, one of which could come from the transfer portal in former Top50 combo guard  Nimari Burnett. The one-time Texas Tech player is looking for a new program to call home, and the Tide could be the landing spot. 

“Definitely staying on top of the recruiting, seeing how I’m doing, how workouts have been since I haven’t been in college,” Burnett said on the latest from UA. “You know, just continuing to get updates on their team. I’ve definitely been watching them, and other schools as well, to see how they’re doing and see how I could fit into their system. It’s been going good.”

Both Nate Oats and Bryan Hodgson are involved, staying in contact with Burnett a few times a week. The Tide has always been one of Burnett’s favorites.

“Out of high school I would say they finished second for me,” he said, adding Hodgson is one of the coaches he’s grown closest with. “We definitely have gotten to know each other over the last couple years. We have a good bond and relationship.”

What schools are in the mix now? “At this point it’s a few schools — USC, Illinois, Alabama, Oregon, and I would say Vanderbilt,’ Burnett replied.

The former elite combo guard laid out a timetable as to when he could decide. “Not in a hurry at all, but I definitely plan to make it as soon as possible as well,” Burnett said. “I would say sometime in April, mid-April (maybe).”

Not having the opportunity to take an in-person visit shouldn’t hinder UA’s chances considering Burnett officially visited the program in high school.

“I think highly of their team,” he said of his impressions of the program this season. “I like the players on their team, not only as people but as basketball players. I like the system they run and how free they play. I like how much fun the players have playing in the system.”

Any favorite? “Not at this point,” Burnett said. “But those list of schools are definitely on top of the list of other ones.”

Anytime. A little bonus nugget:
quote:

*** Looks like Alabama has added a new assistant S&C coach...

UJ Johnson has been added to the staff directory. He was last at IMG Academy and trains Ja Morant during the offseason.

Alabama had an opening with Tyler Owens taking the S&C coach job at Arizona after the season.
quote:

He worked with Coach Rhea our speed coach before. This is an elite hire.

Read the comments. Nba players talking about coming to train at bama in the off season. That will help in bball recruiting also; a few other highschool athletes talking about driving to bama in the summer to see him.

Talked with five-star senior Charles Bediako this morning. He told @Stockrisers that his decision is most likely going to come in March. I’d pretty much say very likely.

His finalists: Alabama, Duke, Texas, Ohio State, and Michigan.

Damn that is awesome and another huge recruiting tool.

Everything I've ever wanted the basketball program to be has shortly become that in the last two years.

re: UA Basketball Recruiting
Oats understands how to build a program and plays a style of basketball that most recruits are really eager to be a part of. If he wants to stick around long term I think the sky is the limit and he could be our version of Billy Donovan or Jim Calhoun.

He got hired to be on the football staff though right?
