    Recruit Scoop:

    In a nice write-up on LoVett from Recruit Scoop, LoVett says that he has offers from "UC-Irvine, Arizona, USC, Stanford, and Washington". Unfortunately, UC-Irvine is the only one I can confirm on the "major" sites, so I'm just going to leave the others off. That said, with this kid's talent level, if UA, USC, Furd and UW haven't offered soon, they will. He's undersized, but can light it up, scoring 44 of his team's 74 points in a third place tournament game last December.

    ESPN compares him to Brandon Jennings -- which is both a good & bad thing. Means the kid can score, but doesn't always get teammates involved. Probably more of a scoring guard than a point at the next level, so it'll be interesting to see how much he grows over the next few years. He's a high level talent though and could be one of the top players in the nation in 2015.

    And we have our first ranking. Scout has him as the #1 PG in the class of 2015 and the #5 player overall.

    Always seems weird talking about potential college players that just finished their freshmen year of high school.

    I've seen scouting reports of 8th graders. It's a scary world.

    In basketball, some of those 8th and 9th graders are good enough to lead an NCAA tourney team right now.

    I saw Chauncey play when he was in eighth grade. He was better than the HS seniors that year who were getting D2 and smaller D1 consideration in the state.

    He also already had that court presence, made the other kids around him better. He was also very classy about how he handled himself. Even when he was ridiculously better than othe kids he treated opponents with respect.

    LoVett is clearly very talented for his age. How is his maturity? I don't think Tad is the kind of coach who is interested in bothering with a kid who is going to be a problem but at this age who knows.
