Definitely a position of need. Barring transfers, I believe we have no more open spots.

First team all state in Georgia as a junior on a team that won their group state title. Other offers I can find are Florida Gulf Coast and James Madison.

Stats say 42% from 3, 80% from the line and 20 points per game.

This addition, when we have no seniors at the point next year, sounds like they know of someone leaving.
The gap between the top of the big leagues and their bottom is now bigger than the gap between their bottom and us - P.R. told me to do this

I. Believe he was offered by the Georgia Bulldogs and Tom Crean.

We would have 4 point guards next year. It would be difficult to imagine that being the case.

We still need major help in the front court. The Days signing appears to be a very good one. I assume they see him as a small forward/power forward and not a center. Sehic has a year of eligibility left. Outside of that we would have Koka, Ajang and Langton. Koka has improved some but it’s hard to see him playing major minutes on a successful team. Ajang hasn’t really progressed much and Langton’s Junior College stats are less than impressive.

Hunter has a good shot. High release, but if there is one aspect of his shot that gives me concern is he at times is jumping forward or landing forward and not jumping up - vertical.

I'm wondering if they are hedging their bets that ROE doesn't come back. Lingering tendinitis bad enough to not play this long seems like something you aren't getting rid of... or a cover for something else. Many guys on the team when I played had tendinitis in our knees (me included), and while it sucked, we didn't miss anything other than an occasional practice. Lots of ice and electric stimulation.

I'm guessing Embo is a gone pecan. He looks like a guy who thinks college has gotten him as far as it can and its time to move on.

GAC (private) is typically a place where the better players go to if they are not in a top public program like a Wheeler or Brookwood or South Gwinnett. On paper, this is an excellent pickup.

One of the replies congratulating him is from Trae Broadnax, another kid I believe we have offered.
