That is some seriously pathetic, agenda-driven journalism. Unfortunately there is nothing you can do about it except let it die quietly in the night.

A blurb from Corey Evans on Auburn’s potential recruiting class:
quote:



Sorry, but that just will not happen. First, B.J. Boston will not decommit. There has only been one prospect that has decommitted from Kentucky under John Calipari and that was last year with D.J. Jeffries, so odds are we will not see the Wildcats hit with a defection in back-to-back classes.

Auburn could have a strong run on the recruiting trail if everything lines up properly this fall. Boston’s travel teammate, Sharife Cooper is the likeliest of the bunch to commit. Walker Kessler has continued to sift through the recruiting process, with his next trip scheduled for Michigan, but at this point in time, the Tigers sit in a great spot.

Lastly, Greg Brown would be a major coup for Bruce Pearl’s bunch, but defeating Memphis, North Carolina and Texas may prove to be too difficult.

A Cooper and Kessler guard-big tandem would give the Tigers another chance at March glory, and I also would not be surprised if Auburn picked up another Rivals150 commitment or two.

A poster on 247 reports reports that Akingabola is back in the United States. Guess his visa issue or whatever is cleared up.



He has reported to campus

AUBURN, Alabama--Auburn’s large class of 2019 basketball signees is now complete with six-foot-eight center Babatunde "Stretch" Akingbola joining the group in time for fall semester classes.

We offered Jamal Mashburn Jr. He’s a 6’0 SG. Probably more like a PG.

Don’t be a backup plan and I’m good with it.

This is what I'm concerned about. I can't see offering a 6'0 wing.

Colby Jones, highest ranked player in Alabama chooses Xavier. Don’t think we wanted to take him yet.

The state of Alabama doesn’t have much talent this year.

Blum and Al.com filed an open records request and received a list of NCAA infractions since Person’s arrest.

Just 3 since January 2017, one since Person’s arrest

quote:

The three sanctions included an unidentified staff member paying to retrieve a athlete’s car after it was illegally parked. The athlete’s aid was reduced by $85 and the staffer was suspended for three days without pay. This occurred in January 2017.

The second penalty occurred in Sept. 2018, when Auburn paid for a meal to an individual accompanying a prospect. The violation wasn’t reported until the prospect committed to Auburn. The conference said the unnamed assistant coach couldn’t recruit for a 15-day period, which started last month.

The third penalty occurred in April 2017, and involved an assistant coach having knowledge of a basketball game with prospects that included a student manager. Auburn suspended the assistant coach’s recruiting privileges for a two-week period in July 2017.

Nothing too major that I see.

Also, is this Blum guy really an AU basketball beat writer?! He seems more like a 'journalist' that Al.com hired with the sole intent to dig up made-up dirt on our program.

He will soon be in Dallas and won’t be dealing with him anymore. I thought Joel Erickson was a good one. Wish he would come back.

I agree. Green's reports are honest, and doesn't seem to always have a negative feel to them like Blum's always did. If there is negative news, Green reports it, but doesn't write it with opinionated negative tone added in.

Glad Blum is gone. Ofc, we could get someone worse. lol.

I would think Marcello would be making more here than at AL.com. Wonder what he doesn't like in his newest job?

The merger with ITAT, his reduced role, & the loss of the title of SR Editor.
