Agree especially with some local kids.

Fletcher has not played for a while for that mess of a team Kentucky.

I wonder how happy Bradford is at K-State.   Bradford is starting and playing well but the team around him is not very good.

There are a lot of good high school players with offers out there but I believe older experienced players will have more of an impact.

Bradford isn't good enough for us. Doubt either would even leave imo

I think the transfer market will be more important than the class of 2021.

This is purely hypothetical, but how would people feel about Goodwin and French’s scholarships going to Fletcher (if he decides to transfer) and McKissic (if he wants to play another season)?

I really like the fit with McKissic.  He can play either guard position and is an all-conference defensive player.  He is very adept at creating his own shot, which would take some of the pressure off of Yuri if Perkins leaves after this year.

Fletcher would do very well as a 6'6 four man in the A-10.  He's strong, an explosive leaper, rebounds well and can score inside and out.  Unlike UK, he would be playing with a point guard who can put him in the best position to succeed.  Dontaie Allen's 23 point outburst against Mississippi State may have jeopardized any chance of Fletcher getting back into Cal's rotation.  Allen is the shooter that Kentucky needs to space the floor for their non-shooters to drive.

Great analysis 3 star thank you.

Donte Houston to Austin Peay:

 

To recap, SLU was one of his finalists out of high school in Texas, then on his commitment date he announced he'd be attending Sunrise Christian Academy in Kansas for a prep year.

I believe Cal said Cam wouldn't play anymore this year regardless if he came back(which he did) or not.

It's fascinating watching these big kids -- Donte Houston, Jeremiah Oden, Jason Jitoboh, Mickey Pearson -- go down the same road.  They pass up really good mid-major situations to "improve their stock", only to end up at worse mid-majors/sitting at a high major anyway.

Not necessarily. He might wind up being a very good player there, but he's not a future NBA player or anything. I think @3star_recruit called him (and I'm paraprhasing) an undersized face-up 4 with some limitations to his game. He might have found the right level for himself.

He had a few stronger offers along with SLU - Seton Hall, TCU, Houston - but I'm not sure how committable those were, or how long they were fresh - meaning they may have been conditional or only available for a moment in time and not representative of his options upon his original or later commitment dates. Middle Tennessee looked like a frontrunner for a bit, New Mexico and Murray State were in the mix, and I think Missouri State offered after he was at Sunrise. Then some directional Texas schools in CUSA and the Southland, he probably could've taken those whenever he wanted them.

I like the OVC. He's going to get good competition against Murray State and Belmont regularly. Austin Peay is good for an OVC Tournament run every once in a while, too.

I forgot about Jitoolboh. Now in his second year, looks like he has done absolutely nothing in his career.

-thanks, sorry for another question, but him not Being a Billiken is not something we should fret about?

I think playing alongside Yuri is one of the best selling points we have when making a pitch to an impact transfer. What scorer wouldn't want to play alongside Yuri? These type of pure point guards are pretty rare in today's game.

Not at all. I'm not sure how much of a priority he was when he listed us as a finalist, but when he chose Sunrise, we appeared to part ways for good.

Look at the whole 2021 offer list as it stands now and don't get too hung up on anyone because the staff is focused on the spring. Maybe one of those guys has a big HS year and looks more appealing at that time but I expect the roster to be filled with transfers.

Had a SLU offer at one point (right after a nice performance at the EYBL event at SLU a couple years ago):

Scoonie Penn's son. OSU was the favorite for him for a long time but Scoonie took a job with the Grizzlies and his son took a prep year away from Columbus. His stock was also never high enough at the time for OSU fans to think much of him. He's also enrolled early because he graduated HS in May, and he's eligble to play as early as next week.

He said he would play tonight if they have foul trouble.

Sekou Gassama had 24 points (including 17 of 20 from the FT line) 8 rebounds going head to head with Tarris Reed Jr. last night in close game at Chaminade. (Reed had 15) Gassama had 16 and 10 in a recent game v Webster.  (DeSmet of course is playing its entire season without Keita, Redmond, Markway)
