    I know the consensus is that Rodney is a helluva recruiter... and I don't doubt that.... but just wanna say he's still got serious court skills... in the pro-am league he's playing in, he launched 32 pts a couple of weeks ago and then chen followed up w/ 39 pts last week.... pretty fun...

    Why did we never recruit him? I remember watching him at DU and he was pretty good

    I believe we didnt have a place for him at the time. From what I remember, Patton was somewhat upset at the fact he couldnt bring him on, but obviously not upset enough to find him a spot

    I saw him play twice — once at George and once at DU. I think he didn't play at a higher level because he didn't have the outside shot to keep defenses honest. Again, my opinion. Great defender and ballhandler, though.

    i would have to agree seeing him back at DU, but I tell you what, he's got an outside shot now!

    I played against him in high school and he was a great, but not elite player. Frankly, he didn't really even stand out on his AAU team. He averaged 10 points a game at DU his senior year. Maybe a role player at CU, but he wouldn't have been a game changer IMO.

    This. He's a couple years older than I am, he was a very good player but never a force in high school. A good player, but couldn't take over games. DU was the right place and right level for him.
