Thanks, my bad... Soooo why hasn't he signed??

He is probably holding some kind of ceremony at his high school when he signs.

None of us know how good these recruits will be a the next level, but I think it is positive that we are now having recruits select us over LSU, Auburn, and UNLV instead of Eastern Illinois, Morehead State, and the like. The ghost of Soderberg may have finally left the building.

Video of him suggests that he models his style of game after Carmelo Anthony. (I am not suggesting he is anywhere near the caliber of player Carmelo Anthony was in college.)

 

I say that because Carmelo was a hefty forward who wasn't lighting quick or off-the-charts athletic but had great hands, a great shot, and an uncanny ability to use his body and skills to get points. 

Nevermind, I just checked Carmelo's high school highlights on youtube.com, and he was an above-the-rim dunking machine. Interestingly, most of Carmelo's NBA highlights are 15 - 20 foot fadeaway and up-and-under jumpers.

I haven't been keeping official tabs, but my recollection is that all of our recruits (except maybe Gillman) had solid BCS offers. It is perhaps the most telling "unofficial" stat about the rise of the program. Here is what I found:

 

Jolly - Colorado and TCU

Reynolds - LSU

Davell Roby - LSU, Auburn, Ole Miss, MU, Arkansas, Wake Forest

Marcus Bartley - Northwestern

Milik - Auburn, Minnesota, and Iowa

 

Gillman committed very early and was expected to be a longer term project, so it isn't fair to benchmark his offers at the time.
