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.


That makes sense w Turbo at 2. Even though we only saw a fraction of him play, he seemed uncomfortable running the point.
I have a feeling Powell, if he can protect the basket, was a good distributor in HS, so maybe the PG is a good spot for him for now...

Same here. The worry with Powell especially at 6'6 is against the small quick guards. I think he'll be fine offensively.

Any idea what his wingspan is like? If he is at 6'9+ he should be able to hang through length with small quick college guards if he has sound fundamentals

This rule may give player handlers even more clout. May help with our team dad/ Isaac Okoro’s agent Omar Cooper.

Jboy and posse locks in their predictions.

JD Davison to Auburn.

Also, Davison tweeted save the date of Halloween. Could be a big day for us.

It would be great to have 2 great guards come next year.

I only worry about the following until signing day:

+ pressure always on the Top Alabama player going to Alabama + transfers to Nike AAU circuit which we don't have any
connection to as an Under Armour school

JD and Jabari Smith are the top 2 on the board.

Top 2 players yes. Jabari has perimeter skills no doubt but he's probably a 5 in our system

We are only taking 2 commits. Maybe and it's a big maybe 3. We have only one scholarship coming available at the end of the year so will have to make room for any more then one.

There are things JD obviously likes about Auburn, especially Pearl and Bowman but I don’t foresee him signing with Auburn. I think he ends up at Bama. His family is all Bama.

I think AU leads for JD. Is even with LSU for Jabari. That’s pretty good considering Jabari’s dad played at LSU

What information has formed your opinion? I wouldn’t think that because of Jboy. He has been wrong a lot.

I think we have a much better shot with Jabari than JD at the moment.

Although I understand why, there isn’t the family connection with LSU that Bama has going for them but you never know, money can change a lot of things.

I have no idea who Jboy is and sounds like how he’s been described on this board that he’s an idiot or something.

In basketball I just listen to the talking heads about what they hear.

In football I can get information from high school coaches sometimes but during the season it’s more difficult.

I think you're correct on Davidson with no knowledge but a gut feel.

Regardless, as long as Pearl is the Head Coach we'll be top 25 in recruiting - which is astonishing at AU - and we'll generally be in the final 32 in the NCAA tourney every year if not better. Of all the coaches over the years at AU, Pearl seems to get as close to a team's potential in actual performance, with some over-performance mixed in for good measure. Even early in his tenure at AU he was squeezing juice out of a dehydrated lemon. Pearl's zone/flex offense from Dr. Tom Davis is perfect at a place like AU, and kids love to play in it.

What are the talking heads saying about JD that makes you think Auburn will be his choice? Might be something I haven’t heard. Or is that just your gut feeling?
