Who are the double sport recruits that both Gus and Bruce want?

Gene's fault, cause he is an a-hole.

Idk. These recruits always feel like mythical creatures though

We hear this pitch so often being made but who was the last true two sport athlete? Someone who actually contributed in two primary sports (not including track)

Arkansas had a guy named Marcus Monk I believe who contributed in both basketball and football...if memory serves me correct.

Shenker? Played football and baseball last year, but wasn't really a starter for either and was only recruited for football.

The other recent one coming to mind is Jameis Winston. He played football and baseball at FSU, but quit baseball after his freshman year.

I originally was talking AU specifically

but it sounds like a legit discussion for the wider CFB/CBB scene too

re: #tAuburnBasketball Thread
Kyler Murray at OU was probably the last great two sport guy. Drafted high in both sports (football/baseball).

At Auburn, I am drawing a blank as far as recently. Gabe Gross is the first that comes to mind. Starting QB, MLB draft pick. He played like 20 years ago now...

Basketball/Football would be Donovan McNabb at Cuse and Julius Peppers at UNC. Two notables.

That's what is weird to me. Feels like every year we talk about making this pitch to a recruitI. can't even think of a two sport athlete that doesn't do track


Or maybe I'm getting to the "every year blends together" stage of life .......... Pass the Don Julio Lanier

247 has a new article out about each of the newcomers. Brief summary of each player. Should have another article about where the returners are at this point.

Cardwell biggest surprise. Moves well for his size and will fit in nicely alongside Akingbola at the 5.

Sharife it's pretty much all been said. He can ball. Looking to get stronger and better defensively

Moore playing the 3 and 4. Has a lot better outside shot than he had shown. Athletic and strong.

Powell big guard with range well out past the 3pt line. Very high basketball IQ. Working at the 1 and 2. Hopeful that he can provide minutes at both this season.

Thor has an extremely high ceiling. Needs to add weight and strength but everything else is there. Can play effectively inside and out

Got the new 2k21 when it came out a couple days ago, Chuma STILL isn't on the Magic's roster

I just want to play with an Auburn player, goddammit.

I really wish 2k would just donate whatever money it is that Barkley wants so he'll allow his likeness on the game. The color commenting has always been lacking on 2k without him in the mix, but I want him on some all-time teams as well

re: #tAuburnBasketball Thread
The update on the returners isn't really that informative. The only thing newsworthy I could glean from it was Jaylin didn't have access to any proper training equipment and came back out of shape from the layoff and Cambridge must not have been shooting and is trying to re-find his outside shot. Little disconcerting with Devin. He really needed to completely rework his form if he hopes to be anything resembling consistent.

ETA Turbo is working almost exclusively at the 2 so it's seeming like Powell or a walkon backing up Cooper at PG.
