I was fairly concerned about Stanford offering him. He is an exceptional student and very intelligent. The question is whether or not they offered too late with everything that’s going on.

UVA was another but they never pulled the trigger with an offer.

Should I know who that is?
It’s alright. I also follow this thread and have no clue who he is. Like Doug, though, it’s only a passing interest these days.

Emarion Ellis from Davenport Assumption picked up a Texas offer today. Seems like an odd one.


Big time scoop. Not sure why today's posts didn't show initially...

There are not open gyms or tournaments either right now, what the hell did Texas see to all of the sudden offer him?

Smart by him. Shaka must have been blown away by video of him recently. Not even a Drake or UNI offer.

Sure but little different when you're Texas taking this kid from Iowa with no real profile compared to Fran taking a couple local legacy kids at Iowa.
I think that is going to happen over and over this year and maybe even some of next year. Lots of kids didn't get seen by scouts or coaches all spring and summer, and if they did it was limited or luck. Evaluations being made over a shitty internet stream on a 15 inch screen or smaller or packaged highlights. Going to be what looks like reaches on kids.

Think how many kids every year seem to come out of nowhere in July/August and then sign with a high major a few months later, and vice versa how many kids that looked awesome as Sophomores stop growing and don't develop.

Thankfully for Iowa they only have maybe 2 kids to sign and they pretty much know exactly who they want, and if they do have to get someone and rely on evaluation, Fran is good at jumping on kids early that others ignore.
