He doesn't sound too much like a world beater or a program changer, but I guess you never know:

 

"He really can do it all. I think he projects as a very good low D1 prospect.”

 

With summer basketball now over for Black, he has been able to focus more on recruiting. North Florida has extended him his only division I scholarship offer, but he has heard from Eastern Kentucky, South Dakota State, IUPUI, and St. Francis (PA). Division II programs Lewis, Quincy, UIS and St. Joes have all offered. Fresh off of his visit to North Florida, Black narrowed his list of schools down to two lucky finalists: North Florida and Lewis.

 

So in the end I guess we got the best of North Florida (2008-2009: 8-22, 335 RPI, Divison I for 5? years) and a Division II school in Lewis.

 

Maybe I should take some time to digest this, but at face value it looks like a step down in replacement value.

Let's welcome Mike....on the surface this doesn't appear to be the most 'sexy' available player we could have gotten but there isn't much info out on him that I can find. Gotta believe the coaching staff knows what they are doing....let's extend a warm welcome to this young man. He is now a Great Dane!

 

I'd love to see his game and see what he can bring at the PG spot. I'm hoping he simply flew under the radar, kind of like Ronald More!
