re: 2019-20 Alabama Basketball Off-season and Recruiting Thread - BigBird09
He’s got a pretty impressive offer list for a JUCO. FSU, LSU, Illinois, NC State, Minnesota, Texas Tech, and West Virginia....

[quote]--Another kid they’ve been impressed with is freshman Jaden Shackleford. They've raved about his competitiveness, how hard he plays. [/quote] Excited to hear this. Kid oozes talent that’s going to make him an unstoppable scorer before he leaves here, but the competitive edge and hustle wil...

[quote]I think Oats will recruit better than we've seen in quite a while. But, it will start to happen AFTER he is winning a lot of games. The fun style of play, coupled with wins, will bring in good players. [/quote] This is where I’ve been since we hired him. I mean it’s great that he’s working...

[quote]I think we at least get Burnett and Josh Hall. And then maybe a Juco and probably a Grad Transfer[/quote] I get Burnett, but why the confidence in getting Josh Hall? I’m not very confident with any of the top prospects we’ve been after outside of Burnett, but Hall certainly isn’t the next ...

[quote]Doesn’t having our hat on the table mean we have a shot at any recruit?[/quote] Landing top recruits doesn’t even mean that. I’m glad we landed Collin Sexton, but he didn’t exactly help with any top recruits the next year (or this one). [quote]Let’s say a top 5 recruit wore Kentucky und...

[quote]Even if that’s all it ultimately ends up being, it still doesn’t hurt being in his final 5 from a current/future recruiting aspect[/quote] May not hurt, but it’s not like we haven’t been a hat on the table of a top 20 prospect before. I’d rather not be included at all if we don’t have any ...

[quote]Also Daishen Nix just set his official visit to Alabama! Him and Nimari Burnett will be on campus together, I believe those are the top 2 targets in this class and would be huge pickups!! Daishen a legit 1 and done.[/quote] That’s huge. I didn’t think we had a shot with him. He’s pretty ea...

[quote]Also I’m beginning to wonder if MB is pushing their kids away from Bama. Watford to LSU and now Colby to Xavier. It’s ridiculous[/quote] Meh. Watford left for the money, and Colby left because Xavier is a very good basketball school and he received very passive interest from us and probabl...

[quote]I wonder if we led for Beauchamp because we were the school he was the closest to being able to qualify for. If the rumors are true that he skipped college because he couldn't get in, this seems possible.[/quote] Would make sense if he didn’t live in Arizona where both Arizona State and Ar...

re: 2019-20 Alabama Basketball Off-season and Recruiting Thread - BigBird09
[quote]Josh Hall[/quote] This guy could end up being an absolute monster. He’s 6’9 wing with some handle and for once, I believe a HS player’s listed height (honestly wouldn’t surprise me if he was taller). Very smooth and effortless game. Reminds me of watching Kevin Durant in high school where ...

[quote]Not sure if anybody else has seen the Netflix series "Basketball or Nothing" about the Navajo high school basketball team in Chinle, Arizona. They have a player, Cooper Burbank, that's a special player. Would love to see Oats go after him. He is considered one of the top prep players in Arizo...

My guess is if we go for 2, our ideal (and somewhat realistic) scenarios are (in order)... 1. Nimari Burnett, Jay Scrubb 2. Nimari Burnett, Deivon Smith 3. Nimari Burnett, Colby Jones Beauchamp forgoing college hurt us bad. I’d say we led for him based off of comments he’s made about us sinc...

[quote]Slater is 12/12 on his 2020 CB picks so far.[/quote] I think Slater and Meyer are probably the best of the bunch on CB picks, but I really wish they’d allow only one change per recruit and incorporate a way to not allow CB picks to count if they’re changed within a week of a commitment. A ...

[quote]Saw on twitter that Andrew Slater put in a crystal ball for Nimari Burnett to Bama. He's as plugged in as anybody.[/quote] Yeah, Beauchamp and Burnett were the 2 I felt best about. Felt like Beauchamp really liked us though, based off of his Tweets. Hilarious that it seems like the guys th...

re: 2019-20 Alabama Basketball Off-season and Recruiting Thread - BigBird09
Yeah, this is strange. If you don’t go college, go overseas. You’re not going to get any better with zero game experience with quality players. No one is going to draft a kid who was the 29th ranked kid in his class that has no game film past high school and hasn’t been playing any sort of legit com...

[quote]I imagine the event staff would be under Bama’s control/discretion which would lead it to being a home game for us.[/quote] If that’s the case, I see no logical explanation for that choice. I’d be more okay with playing some other bad basketball team not located 10 minutes away....

[quote]I think BHam is considered a home game for us but I’m not sure.[/quote] Not saying this isn’t right and that’s been true for past games, but how in the hell would Samford score an away game 10 minutes off campus at a neutral arena. Would make much more sense both logically and from a sched...

[quote]Birmingham counts as a home game due to proximity to Tuscaloosa.[/quote] Does it? Samford is actually way closer. I kind of thought that was one of the reasons they chose Samford. Definitely would make more sense if it was considered a neutral game....
