Recruiting - 2023


Recommended Posts

Pryor looks legit dude hit 35% of his 3PT on 122 shots while still rebounding 8 per game on average.  He takes about 3.5 3PA/game and it is about 1/3 of all his FGAs. Also getting approx 1.7 steals per game.  I like the #s and the pedigree seems like an immediate contributor.

Which is just strange because the Madrid campus doesn't have a basketball team.  

Googled him.  Here are some recent stats.

This is great news. It will be a lot easier to win 20 games each year if we have two teams.

I'm not going to be happy and I'm going to ask for our coach and the entire athletic department to be fired every year we don't win 30 games.  Anyone who disagrees with me is old, and complacent, and willing to compromise, and not willing to do what it takes to win and a Fordlover, and, and, and..........

It takes skill to make every post about yourself. You’ve gotta be a relative of Ford’s. There’s no other way to explain it.

Anyone know what Jordan Logan and Jayden Nicholson from Vashon are doing this upcoming season?

Jordan Logan is going to Logan Community College.  Jayden Nicholson had some midlevel offers but informed the staff at Vashon he doesn't want to go to college.

Any idea what he wants to do instead?

I remember when he was thought to be a top 25 or top 50 kid entering HS.
