Obviously a dynamic talent, but from Donahue's perspective, I bet there's a lot of Tony Hicks in that video.

This kid is a long way from Tony Hicks. Not even close in terms of style.

Why wouldn't we want a guy who shoots 100% from the field and blocks every shot on defense? Never sure how much these films are useful.

What size schools constitute Class D in Michigan?

He also never commits a turnover.

Look at it this way: he's a 3 star recruit with interest from some pretty good programs. He's obviously athletic, looks like he can score on the break and off penetration, and probably can hit the 3. Penn clearly still has room in the 2018 class. If the kid signs on, it's only a good thing.

Most important from Donahue's perspective is that it appears he can play D. And athletic D at that.

Think he'd have to get his release point higher and quicken his trigger to develop into a scoring threat at our level. He has the range but appears to need more separation than he'll probably be afforded.

With a quick internet search, he lead his team to a state championship, he won at high jumping earlier in high school career, he averaged 21 points on 55% shooting from the field this year. And he has a family history of success... both his older bros won bball state championships also - one runs track now at Michigan and one plays basketball for Michigan State.

Sounds good to me so hope he picks Penn!

Sorry I don’t get your first point? Just because he can jump who said he is a player at all like Adam Chubb (who I thought Dunphy under utilized by the way)? It just means he is athletic. While that is no guarantee of success there certainly isn’t a downside.

And I’m not up on news but I think I see your point #2 based on new horrible news. I hadn’t seen that. His brother is a frost only and maybe just a walk on. Point there was just that he clearly has athletic family history. Again doesn’t guarantee anything, but if Donahue and team want him, I’m in.

Minnesota transfer G Jamir Harris is visiting Penn this weekend, looks like he's a sit 1 play 3 transfer after playing this year as a true freshman at Minnesota. 3 star recruit from NJ had offers from Penn, Princeton, Seton Hall, Alabama, and Creighton among others. Played in 28 games for Minnesota this season and started 2, scoring 4 PPG and shot 35% from 3 in 14 minutes a game.

The NCAA will consider the no sit out rule this summer. The one year sit out requirement will be waived for students with a GPA that exceeds 3.0

Like all quantitative measures, this one is not without controversy. Is a 3.0 the same across all D1 institutions when you consider academic rigor? Can schools purposely manipulate a GPA downward to discourage a player from transferring? Is it racially discriminatory?

We know from our own AI system that uniform standards and academic hurdles raise thorny issues that are uncomfortable for many of us.

PS If the proposal passes (I heard it's a real possibility) Jamir Harris might be able to play immediately. He's supposed to be a very good student.

Know Jamir quite well, yes excellent student and even better kid. He made the wrong choice initially and this move has less to due with the typical playing time and more to do with maturing and understanding the complete benefits of college

So where do you think we fall on his list? Thanks to the Princeton fan for breaking it.

Don't get my hopes up. Would prefer a pleasant surprise than have my heart slammed.

Can a twitter GPA be used by the NCAA for eligibility? It wouldn't surprise me.

FWIW, Saddiq Bey, a 4 star SG who was teammates with Jelani Williams at Sidwell Friends in D.C., was released from his scholarship at N.C. State on Tuesday night. The Wolfpack recently got a number of transfers and Bey may have felt like the odd man out.

Penn was one of many programs offering him a spot. It probably won't take long for one of those schools to get him for the fall.
