    Generally impossible to find ratings for recruits at this level, at least from my experience. You'll get smaller articles saying some players are a steal, or a mention here or there about how a kid had higher level offers, but nothing concrete. For the most part if any of the big boys have seen these players play it's because they were on a team with a higher level recruit or they were playing against a team with a higher level recruit. Even if you look a guy like Anthony Lamb who people were high on as a good get for Vermont 247 barely had him in their system and had him ranked as the 412th best player in his class as a three star.

    Anthony Mack committed to Miami on twitter about an hour ago
  3. Recruiting - 2018

    Last I saw on twitter he was visiting Miami I think, anytime someone lists schools for him they're almost all high majors.

    There really shouldn't be any expectations for next season other than we never expect to be terrible regardless of roster change. Little competition for playing time could be refreshing, we had spots locked up the past couple of seasons and it didn't work out as well as everyone hoped. Going to be a ton of speed bumps early, no way to prevent it with so many new pieces in play. Just nice to be able to add talent so quickly when most programs would be in serious trouble in April losing the pieces we did in March.

    So after watching a couple of Western Wyoming games online I'm a big fan of Nathan Fromm, looks like a steal and a half...

    Just doesn't seem likely, if there was an open starting spot they needed him to fill the offer would be on the table already. Anyone who's guessing on it is thinking Zion would play the 5 for Duke since you have Barrett, Reddish in the 2-3 slot with Zion at the 4 if he doesn't play the 5. If they go small and Zion plays the 5 there's a shot, but you also have Alex O'Connell he would have to jump over to start. Could be awesome if Joe could slide into a 6th man role with them and get significant minutes (15-20 a game?), just seems like a long shot. My guess is Duke adds E.j. Montgomery or another big or two and Duke doesn't go completely small.
  7. 98% sure in that same thread on the Siena board they admitted to NCAA violations which makes this the weirdest thing I've seen in a while.

    Thing about Joe's game is he wasn't a selfish enough player where he was going to take enough shots to drop 30 consistently enough to get national attention at a mid major school...on top of us not playing at a fast pace. To me his game translates to any level, has a Greivis Vazquez type game (Joe's smaller) where he's not overly athletic, but he's very crafty and can shoot the $iena out of the ball. Definitely interested to see him at a high level next year, think his game translates really well in the right situation.

    Not to mention there's not much of a difference between Albany and other schools when it comes to exposure. Lax can rarely be found on tv, and it's advertised even less.

    Yeah he's about as endangered as deer are here in central new jersey

    Not sure it's being dragged out. Monday or Tuesday after the Final Four seems pretty standard for this stuff when it's not expected. Issue is that it got out before then.

    One thing is certain, basketball will be played.
  13. Cremo nichols leave...

    It's done haha, sooner you accept it the better off you'll be.
  14. Cremo nichols leave...

    Haha just popped over there actually to see, not much yet...think most posters have gone into hibernation. Gives them one positive thing to talk about, so I can't even be mad at them.
  15. Cremo nichols leave...

    Alright, I'll chime in for real. This stinks, it does. It happens to a lot of programs, Is it good when it's both guys at the same time? Not at all. This is pretty much life as a mid major though. Losing two talented guys, especially when one is home grown hurts...no other way to put it. Obviously would've rather seen both of them win a title at UA, but they have to do what they feel is best for them and I'm happy for them if they get to move up. As far as Albany goes, we've been here before...it'll get figured out and the program will continue on as it has in the past.
