I was watching some of Bryce's highlights, and realized that he looks like a lefty on his many dunks, but shoots righty. I don't know if I've ever seen that before.



So you're saying he's amphibious.

That could give new meaning to the term 'dunk'.

Here's an article from a local paper on Washington with comments from the player and his high school coach.

http://www.candgnews.com/sports/southfield-chr isti...

- 4 year varsity member
- Southfield Christian's all-time leading scorer
- Averaged 21 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists a game this past season
- Helped program to Class D state title
- Michigan state high jump champion
- According to his coach, Washington is fast and explosive in transition
- According to Washington, he is able to shoot, rebound and defend well. He needs to work on ball handling and strength

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I'm still pinching myself about this late get. It turns a sad class into a seemingly solid one.

mrjames and others, does this move the recruiting class up the tables a bit? I realize we don't have the quantity of recruits, which is a predictor of class quality...

Of course it does. We got three 3 star recruits and a solid 2+ star. That's more than twice as good as this class was.

Can you remind me... Wang, Imegwu, Martz and who else?

Which is the 2+ star player?

Thanks!

Martz is 2019. This year 3 players. Wang, Bryce and Imegwu.

I meant two 3 star and a 2 star. I wasn’t a math major

Anyone hear anything from mrjames recently? He hasn't tweeted in over a month either. Hope he's ok.

He takes a sabbatical every year after season. Hell be back.

As I pointed out earlier, the incoming talent includes the three players from last year that were injured. That adds either two more 3's or two high 2's plus a seven footer. Pretty good class looked at from this perspective.

You've got to stop saying this. The seven footer is not a prospect. 7 footers aren't prospects any more - big guys don't matter in college anymore and he's approximately 78th on the depth chart.

but if they were, they definitely aren't prospects if they haven't played basketball in 3 years and aren't even playing this summer. let's all stop mentioning this guy until he plays a minute in anger*.

Also it just feels like we double count when we do this. If Eddie and Jelani, coming off major and major-ish injuries that do not guarantee they will be their old, previously unproven selves, are now "freshmen" then our sophomore class is awful (and I like Jarrod I'm just being semantical.)

Oh and also also, if they are now freshmen, then if they are any good, it seems there's now a 50% chance that they'll grad transfer. So let's not bend over backwards here.


*which he never will play angry because he has such a sunny disposition.

I agree with J2J, Eddie and Jelani should be considered sophomores for all reasons stated.

Do you think Simmons should be rookie of the year?

If he averages a double double and starts every game, then I absolutely think Jarrod Simmons should be rookie of the year!

Joking aside, Ben Simmons is a pro, with unlimited eligibility. The definitions are quite different for college players. Apples and Oranges.
