Re: 2019 BU recruiting

Looking at Thomas' game he'll need to gain some strength but he does have a nice looking shot. From what I've seen if the kid has a great work ethic he'll be good one. The difference in recruiting in the Valley has more to do with how hard you work on your game. There's a reason we've improved unde...

Re: 2019 BU recruiting

This would be very strange if he still has an offer. Now that we have Thomas. I have no problem with going after a hidden gem. But I would think other positions would be higher priority now

Re: 2019 BU recruiting

I am not sure why Thomas doesn't have more offers. Maybe his shot isn"t great ? He looks good and again phsically developed. Let's close the sale.

Re: 2019 BU recruiting

I like him a lot. Shows great potential. Ike the addition to the young group. I don't think he looks like a shooting guard. But he should help. I would think the PG from Memphis would be the most likely to commit next.

Re: Always a Brave

I think of it as seeing an opportunity others missed. Reminds me of a story of enginuity. I had an aquantance from Peoria who was very bright. He went to Duke for college. A group of students that lived far enough away they had to fly to get to school had an idea. They went to the airport and monito...

Re: 2019 BU recruiting

That changes my feelings. I was thnking if we took a silent commit from him why would he switch to Northern Kentucky ? But back to your point. I have a little meatball fan in me. It upsets me when someone I really think could help us, and the coaches seem interested goes to a lower level school. Lik...

Re: 2019 BU recruiting

I don't know. I can think of a dozen reasons to pick no kentucky over Bradley. But basketball conference and level of play doesn't seem close to me.

So, then I think did we tell him to look elsrwhere ? I can't explain why he would switch to no kentucky otherwise.

Re: 2019 BU recruiting

Odd that he recently came out with a final 4 of Clemson, Creighton, Belmont, and Depaul. Then we get a visit. He reminds me of a better version of Crouch. I really like his game. See what happens. Would like to reunite Boya and Moreno from his AAU team. Not sure if they know Barr also or not. Bette...

Re: 2019 BU recruiting

Thomas does look and sound like he could be a part of an MVC team even though his other current offers aren't MVC level offers. I remember even Tyler Ulis had no offers this time of year. I think Thomas could play for us. But we need a couple guys who can provide offense. He doesn't sound like that....

Re: 2019 BU recruiting

R Dennis t Boise State. I don't understand any more. I realize they may be on a par with s. But we play in the Valley. Maybe we didn't try hard to get him. But why wouldn't he want a offer in the Midwest?

Freshman All American with over 1000 yards receiving. Looked set to be one of the best Illini in a long time.(Low bar I know) Then two years in a row missed the season with torn ACL's in the preseason. Played some last year coming back. Finally came back this year and first game he tears his ACL. He...

Re: 2019 BU recruiting

If Bradley wants to be a big boy program, they have to compete with and win recruiting battles against places like SLU, Iowa, and Depaul. If our chances are 0 in BW year 4 we might as well hang it up now. Bradley most definitely needs to win a recruiting battle against a bigger school if they expec...

Re: 2019 BU recruiting

I thought Dennis sounded like a good fit at Bradley. But he has eliminated us.
I knew Hemenway was a longshot. He has also eliminated us. I was hoping our ties to Indiana elite might get us a player we normally wouldn't.

I guess this is a pretty popular weekend for visits. I know our coaches work in stealth mode. I hope we have some visits lined up. I know it would be a long shot.
