    Again, it's early so there's not a lot of info on him, but he's being recruited by coach pri and has apparently already been on a visit. Not a lot of info, but he's transitioning from off guard to PG, and is 6'4 - so he fits the style of PG boyle prefers.

    he is listed as 6'6" on quite a few sites. So not really sure what his official height is. It sounds like he is Gonzaga's to lose.

    looks interesting but his competition in the highlights is so painfully small, slow and inept that it's hard to say anything. Considering that he also didn't play varsity his freshman & sophomore yrs, he will likely have a steep learning curve at a high major unless he really hits the AAU circuit hard.

    With Brown & Satterwhite committed in this class ('16), I wonder how interested CU is at this point?

    Need Bigs

    Boyle will lose Scott and XJ next year. Miller is a PF, there is no replacement for Scott & XJ. Boyle has a Freshman PG, his focus should be on replacing the bigs with quality bigs. The only way I see him taking another G is if he is aware that Collier is leaving for some reason, otherwise, focus on PF and C first, then a PG.

    :wtf:

    They're seniors for the 2015-16 season. So if we're talking about the 2016 recruiting class needs, we're talking about replacing some significant front court pieces.

    It's a guard oriented sport. Get PGs.

    He must not have taken a recruiting trip there before he signed.
