    This is great - nice profile. Only thing is that you forgot the shout-out to AztecBuff, not that he's a rep whore or anything. :)

    I wish we had better highlights of him, but he looks good. The offers are great, and looking around, he was also 1st team All Peach Jam. We may be a little late in the game, but let's hope after losing Anderson.

    I think we have offered earlier. Grier and Rohn have followed Boogie for a long time, at least. I have to imagine he knew we were interested for a long while.

    Let's get Kim on this guy and close!

    This is a nice clip. He is lethal from downtown. I wasn't paying too much attention, but I spotted Dana Altman, Sean Miller, Mike Anderson from ARK, and our own Bill Grier on the sideline watching

    I am an old guy, and will probably be criticized for being out of touch ... but I'll say it anyway ... The notion a teenager to "be announcing my final 8 schools tomorrow" seems way of the top in regard to being egotistical. I understand the process, but I think that it is way out of whack. And I wonder what ever happened to "humility", being valued as a human quality.

    I guess I'm the opposite of you on this stuff. I want them to have fun with it, show a big personality and - gasp :D - even work on building their brand.

    Also, I'm not sure that humility is a character trait I want to see. I like some extroverted confidence in a basketball player as long as it's channeled into a drive toward both team goals as well as personally dominating. I want alpha dogs.

    In general, I'm a big fan of the "act like you've been here before" mentality. But A: These kids have never been in a position to be so desired before and have not been here before, and B: Will most likely never be "here" again. Live it up. Enjoy the hell out of it. Show up and go to work once you get on campus though.

    I find the game these kids play to be ridiculous. It is to stroke their ego.

    I would suggest that "confidence" and "humility" are not mutually exclusive ... nor is humility counter to being an extrovert. In fact, I submit that the need to stoke one ego is a symptom of lack of confidence ... and a detriment to success in the real world. A good example of a humble extrovert, who is also very confident, seems to me to be a young player at CU ... namely Evan Batty

    Spencer and McKinley are not humble men. That's what I'm talking about.

    Up until 2:00 PM - Aug 14, 2018, I thought it was fine when prospects posted their finalists.

    Now I frown upon it. I don't know what happened.
