-how's his shot?

Looks good from highlight videos. Described as having developed quickly in some scouting reports, which makes me think he wasn't much of a shooter earlier on and is working on it. But his form, range, etc. look solid to me. And he has put up some massive scoring numbers on occasion, leading me to believe he's kind of a streaky shooter with the ability to go off.

Yeah.  But i think now is the perfect time to take a flyer on him.  I think the offers will start flowing in with his expanded role this coming season.

Anytime somone that size is getting looks, I assume it is because they have intangibles great enought to make up for their height limitations.

Most definitely.  I have been a fan of his since I saw him in the Ramey league in 8th grade.  He has everything Pistol stated in the scouting report and he's dunking as well.

Williams is the perfect guy to build around what works in the A10, 3 guard lineups with skilled undersized guys that can shoot. Mix them together with 2 bigs, one who can step out and the other who can play in the post, while both rim protect and rebound and you have a a10 1st place team.

What is the line on Dherio Mckaskill from Vashon? He stood out today at Ramey.

I came here to ask the same thing. He seems to have created a stir today. I'd heard his name but know almost nothing else. Doesn't seem like he has any offers yet.

New offer:

Cam Ward - F, 6-7, 210 - Upper Marlboro, MD (Largo) - AAU: Team Durant (Nike EYBL) - Twitter: @camabucket
Offers: Saint Louis, VCU, George Mason, George Washington, Georgetown, Providence, Iowa, Maryland, Penn State, Texas, Tennessee, Arkansas, Texas A&M, Syracuse, Florida State, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Kansas State, West Virginia, Old Dominion, Canisius, Bryant.

Interest: Xavier, Illinois, UCLA, USC, Northwestern, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Louisville, SMU, San Diego.

Latest News: Ward received an offer from SLU. (9/9/23)

Scouting Report: Ward is a long, athletic, versatile wing who puts up huge numbers. He's tough to stop going downhill, can handle it, and he draws a lot of fouls. He has an effective mid-range game. He's an outstanding rebounder at both ends. He can guard multiple positions. Rankings: Rivals - 102, 247Sports: 62, 247Sports Composite - 63, ESPN - 39.

-I'm always curious when we offer this level of recruit, especially when we're not early to the game. I've been talking to @TheChosenOne and others about this, but I think if he stays in that 75-150 range, the power conference teams at this point are spending way more on transfers and there may be a lot of value to be had for SLU. That's the direction I'd be going, anyway.

He has offers from Bryant University,  Jacksonville University and SIUE.  

He put on a show today.  He will probably play behind Mouse and Trey down at Vashon but he's a D1 guard for sure.  Him and Jimmy McKinney Jr (2027).  Liked what I saw from Zyree Collins as well.

Another new 2025 offer from Team Durant:

Interest: George Washington, Marquette, Xavier, Charlotte, Delaware, American, James Madison, Old Dominion, Mount St. Mary's, Loyola-Maryland, Howard.

Latest News: Holmes received an offer from SLU. (9/11/23)

Scouting Report: Holmes is a long, active, hardworking big man with high upside. He rebounds and blocks shots, he's tough to stop around the rim, and he's building out his offensive game. He started playing basketball later than most so his recent improvement has been more dramatic.

-now I like this kid's parents as some years ago some coworkers had a debate about the pronunciation of 'Xavier' so it appears this kid has taken the question off the table by putting the 'Ex' at the front

-of course Gus would screw it up regardless of how it is spelled
