    I have to go to a meeting, so anyone who posts solid scouting report info in the next hour gets rep.

    On my phone or I'd look it up, but I don't know anything about Branchwest Elite for AAU. Always good to know who is on that team with him and how they did if they played Compton Magic, Pump 'n Run or Oakland Soldiers.

    Sounds like he is a UCLA commit waiting to happen...if and when UCLA actually offers.

    Branch West looks to be run by Bob Gottlieb (Doug's dad) and counts Monte Ellis and James Harden among their alumni. Devin Burleson played with them last summer. www.branchwest.com

    Thanks. Sounds like they're right there with the other big time Cali AAU teams.

    Once a heavy UCLA lean, Wright has opened things up with the firing of Ben Howland.

    Buffs are not currently on his visit list, but CU is definitely on his radar.

    Where do the Buffaloes fit into the picture?

    "Colorado and I, we speak a lot. I think they want me a lot," he said. "I like the coaching staff. They're younger so they get along with kids better than some older coaches."

    Yep. I mis-stated that. He's in the Collier/Perkins class that will begin signing in November. I'll edit my post and your quote so people don't get confused.

    We are in his top nine, but obviously some work to do:

    That surprises me a little bit. Bossi talked to him yesterday, I believe, and CU was one of 5 or 6 teams mentioned.

    Oh, and **** Oregon and Washington. We need to beat up on both this year and show these kids who the real contenders are.

    Wright seemed to fall pretty hard this summer. It's interesting that Missouri seems to be jumping on a couple of guys who weren't getting the west coast offers in Wright and Sandifer.

    If Mizzou let him out of the LOI, that wouldn't suck at all.

    Even if they didn't, I wouldn't complain about a situation like UCLA had with Hamilton.

    No clue. But if Spencer leaves, we have a spot.

    I think I'd rather get a veteran player who could provide a immediate shooting boost

    Unless this kid has a predilection for dumpster fires, it's between us & Oregon.

    Would balance out class sizes nicely by being Akyazili's lone man class.

    Come on, Namon!
