    I doubt Cal would have taken 2 additional guards if we still thought we had a shot at all three.

    I am sure ,fairly sure, that Monty and staff told Bird that a Big would be apart of the class.
    Time to bring in the Big, within the next 10 weeks.
    After 10 weeks, things get fuzzy.


    Moreover, everyone is talking about the looming DeCommit of Zach LeVine.
    (Bruins are even deleting posts about this subject. Scrambling like crazy.)
    Just like Monty promised, fairly sure that Ben also said: he would be around next year.
    If Ben is gone next year (and from Bruins boards, everyone wants him out & are looking for his replacement)....Then, Zach is also gone.

    Where will he land? with washington, oregon, CAL or Zona.

    That was the most coherent Rise post in a long long time even if untrue.

    Did he just use moreover correctly? And looming? And there are complete sentences? I always thought he just mumbled uncoherent pro-Arizona prose as he gave people their change.

    You are saying that despite the fact that we need big men, when we lost out on two of the top rated big men in the class we took two guards instead?

    Besides:

    Matthews commitment to Cal was announced on Sep. 8

    Singer's commitment to Cal was announced on Oct. 1

    Lee committed to Kentucky on Oct. 16

    So we offered Matthews and Singer and received commitments from them well before we lost Lee to Kentucky. Furthermore, at the time, the thought was that if we had Lee there was hope of getting Gordon. Gordon is still uncommited and unsigned. Thus, all the evidence points to our offering scholarships to Matthews, Singer, Bird, Lee and Gordon with the intent of somehow being able to take them all, otherwise I don't think you offer the other guards until you find out about the big men and even then I think we still need big men.

    Either that, or Monty & Co. knew something you (and I) didn't.

    Oh, come on, CB, there are many on this site who know more about Monty's recruiting than Monty does!

    Rooks TurnUP in San Diego.

    A lot of coaches watching him play.
    Scored a great deal.

    Just what Bird ordered. A Big
