    GoPowercat.com has an article on him that reveals that we have offered.

    So why haven't those schools offered?

    I find that KSU-slant hard to believe. If CU and LEHIGH have offered, I'm fairly certain he can get in to KSU. Other than that article, not a whole lot about him online yet.

    Adam with the update. K-State and Drake have offered since the last post in this thread.

    Finally has rankings! 3* on Scout and 2* on ESPN right now. From the ESPN scouting report he sounds like a long, lanky player who is a good defender who can play multiple positions (I'm thinking about copying & pasting that on every profile I do. Tad has a type...). Also it sounds like he really tore it up at the Reebok Challenge in Philadelphia, with Rivals saying this about him:

    Definitely a guy to keep an eye on this cycle. Having a big summer and all the premium site publishers are talking about him for CU.

    He and his AAU team are on ESPNU at 5pm MT.

    Props to Adam/Rivals for the heads up.

    And rep to you for sharing with us.

    EDIT -- and it's followed by the 30 on 30 on the Fab Five. I know how I'm spending tonight now.

    Other than the Baylor piss yellow jerseys, I liked what I saw last night. He was on the floor with four Top 100 players, and fit in well. He isn't a star, but loved his versatility on defense. He was guarding guys in the post and out on the perimeter. The announcers kept raving about how smart he was, and saying that coming in to the summer, he was a high mid major prospect, but has probably worked his way into a BCS conference over the last few weeks.

    Anyone else watch?

    One of the many things I love about Tad is that he coaches a system that isn't reliant on a "star" to be successful. He seems to have an ability to find and develop guys who can play within the system and step up when it's their turn. The leading stat guy can be different each night but the team plays the same.

    This has to make it very hard for opponents to prepare for Tad's teams and it makes it much easier for him to make adjustments in game.

    This kid sounds like one of those guys who could fit right in with Tad, score 18 one night, 8 the next game and have played an effective game in both.

    I worry that he doesn't have natural hands and offensive skills.

    That will limit his upside.

    But I see a very interesting glue guy who will play great defense and have some exciting moments on the fast break.
