    I've got a guy headed to The Horizon League that is worth a mention. 6'8 PF Cade Meyer from Monroe, WI is headed to UW Green Bay. Nice in-state get for Will Ryan the Phoenix's new coach. Son of Former Badger HOF coach BO Ryan.

    Meyer is well rounded and should fit in instantly to the rotation. UWGB is rebuilding and it's actually been awhile since they've been able to keep any In State talent leftover from the big boys inside of Wisconsin.

    That kid is a load. Probably going to be some disappointed Big Ten teams regretting not taking him. Solid iside/outside bigman.

    Agreed I think he has a bright future as a mid major player.

    Some news. Big time 2021 C Nathan Bittle will announce tomorrow. Since he and Chet Holmgren, the number one player in the class, are vying for the same west coast teams, the thinking is Bittle will stay clear of Holmgren frontrunner Gonzaga and pick a Pac 12 team most likely Oregon where I believe he is from.

    Speaking of Gonzaga they picked up yet another versatile 6'8" PF in Ben Gregg, a highly rated player who can do damage inside and out. Smooth athlete.

    To me the biggest news of the day is Virginia nabbing 6'5" SG Australian Taine Murray. Following in the tradition of now NBA star Joe Harris and Kyle Guy, Murray is a long range threat. And the cherry on top is Murray is an outstanding athlete with terrific hops. Kind of like a taller stronger version of Kyle Guy. Maybe he is a cross between Tyler Herro and Rex Chapman? Great pick up for Virginia.

    Dana Altman believe it or not use to start 5 white players for Creighton ( including Cuck Korver). You wouldnt know that from watching Oregon.

    Enter Bittle, who was rumored to go to Gonzaga. Unfortunately his lesser talented arch nemesis just enrolled there. A terrible move unless they land Holmgren. We can only hope that he comes to his senses and goes to Arizona ( who unexpectedly signed a boatload of quality international guys but no true center).

    He is going to screw this up and become “a human victory cigar” for Oregon while twirling a towel from the bench. Id say there is a small chance Oregon signs a few white guys in the future given their location but the past decade hasnt been kind.
    Bittle might be interesting if he fills out, but Gregg is massively overrated and not super athletic either. He might develop into a great outside shooter is about the best case scenario. Neither one of these kids could hold Holmgrens jockstrap.
    Awesome news for Virginia. I know nothing about the incoming guard but their coach sure can find quality white SG’s.

    What can I say. Five star center Nate Bittle is heading to Oregon. Hopefully not in a towel waving role?

    This is the basketball equivalent of Trey Quinn signing with LSU. 17 year old kids are so stupid.

    Carter Whitt, the flashy 6'2" PG from the class of 2021 has chosen Wake Forest. He isn't athletically in the league of say Jason Williams (White Chocolate) but he shares the same kind of crowd pleasing aspects to his game. He is a tremendous passer.

    The class of 2022 is starting to settle in with top name players with most of the white players either holding steady or falling just a bit. But Nebraska PF 6'9" Isaac Traudt has seen his stock balloon this past summer. A versatile and athletic player who can shoot it inside and out, many of the big boys have him on their list. He went from the bottom of the top 100 to roughly the top 50 in a few short months.

    They have a new coach so you can never be 100% sure but this screams the kind of stupid destination that a kid with the name “ White Chocolate” would make. Should be a few years of him doing funky circle dances, cornrowing his hair and making unintelligible sounds and animal poses.

    My guess is Traudt has the sense to go to Iowa, and avoid his loser coach that blackened up Iowa State and continued the recent tradition of only recruiting inner city kids to come to Nebraska. Hoiberg should run for the Mayor of East St Louis and leave the rest of the midwest towns alone.
