    This is kind of a general question, but how long has it been the norm to recruit kids so early in high school? This has to be a contributing factor in the players today having such a sense of entitlement. They are told from an early age how great they are, what a commodity they are, and how badly each program wants them.

    Seriously?? Olson's staff used to send out letters to kids in middle school.

    Gotta love the intensity of this kid....and how much his Dad is involved in his life, how driven he is better his game and be the best, working out and putting on some weight, and hitting the books and making sure his academics are in order. I saw in another video (before the AZ offer came along), he was most interested in Georgetown, NC, and Texas for their playing style.

    Good with both hands.
    If you disagree with me, you are either a racist, a homophobe, or most likely, both.

    Bump

    He seems to have continually improved over the last year/season and is beginning to be seen as a possible force at the collegiate level. According to a recent article, Arizona is in his final 6 schools along with Kansas, Georgia, Ohio State, Indiana, Florida.

    Rated 5 stars by Rivals #18, 4 stars by ESPN #34 for 2015

    Have not seen or heard much here at PGU about him so I am thinking we are just on his list so it looks good. Anyone know if Arizona has serious interest in this big man?

    He's probably not coming to Arizona.
