I'm pretty sure that's our role in those whole thing, isn't it?. We're not players and we're not coaches. We watch youtube clips and look up the 3pt percentages of our recruits. Then next year we'll drive through snowstorms to away games. We'll live and die with each foul call and then won't be able to talk the next day from screaming. We're fanatics, that's just what we do.

Anthony Mack committed to Miami on twitter about an hour ago

Good for him. Hopefully plays well. Will be interesting what Brown does with the remaining scholarships. Maybe use 1 on a grad transfer (if we can get one) and then save one for next year?

Folkun committed to Tulsa. 

Updated. VC doesn't have us going after many more people but all of the recent verbals were people we never saw mentioned...so I'm sure Brown is talking to a dozen kids who VC has no idea about.

How do sites like this even gather that data? From players Twitter accounts?

We really need one more 2 guard...6'4 type...

I think we need another banger down low and a swingman who can play the 2 and 3 on the wing.

With so many new faces, I have no idea what we need. Typically, on most college teams, there are between 8-10 players that get into the rotation. At the AE level, I think the goal is normally to have a roster with 5 Bigs,  5 guards, and 3 swing/wing types.

The team has 3 players listed at wing now (Campbell, Fromm, and deSousa). Campbell graduates after this season. I see a wing on the 2019 wishlist more than now.

The team has only 4 "Bigs" currently - Lauderdale, Lulka, French, and Hank. Landing another 6'8" or 6'9" mobile big would be my first target

The team has only 4 guards - none listed as a SG currently - Clark, Brooks, Healy, and Rizzuto are all considered point guards. Find me a sharpshooter!

Healy and Rizzuto are SG no matter what the scouting services say plus Fromm and Brooks are 40% 3pfg shooters coming in.

I've interacted with the guys who run it to provide some info on UA recruits a few years back.  I forget which ones.  They get their info from twitter, newspaper articles, submissions from fans of the team or the site, from recruiters and from the players themselves sometimes.  If you don't see something there from UA there is a link on the site to let them know but they will only update if it's verifiable through twitter or a newspaper article or the like.

CB mentioned the prospect of leaving a scholarship or two open this year if the staff couldn't find someone who fit. They did have a lot of ships to fill this spring.
