gonna be a lot of fun having this kid's skill set for a few years
obviously things change quickly now but outside of caleb and day’ron we should have this class for at least 3 years. and even day’ron is likely 2 years
if you can't tell I'm a little bored right now
Puff doesn't seem to have any decent videos from this year so I'm watching his Jr year highlights and something just occurred to me noticing his gait while on the move, he's basically the lovechild of Paige and Henson. Obviously the stroke and floater pop out, but the way he covers so much ground with each stride and just his lower body movements attacking the basket in general remind me of Henson, even looks to have that baby hook at this point.
tough to gleam much from this year for him. that school he went to had like 3 different coaches. was bad for his growth so i would honestly expect kerwin to get more minutes as a freshman than him while he makes up for a lost year
Was inspired by shig to look through our b-ball recruiting class because I haven’t really paid a ton of attention to them. Definitely getting pretty excited and really like the Day’Ron stuff I’ve seen.
As part of this, I was looking through the overall 2020 class and was shocked to see that Cade Cunningham ended up at Oklahoma State. I obviously don’t have all the background/story there but I know we were in on him pretty hard at one point and he’s apparently the #1 kid in the country. OSU seems like an odd move.
Cunningham's brother is an assistant at OSU
Gotcha - kind of surprised we recruited him if that was the case. Usually we steer clear of the kids who have family/advisors who are obviously looking for handouts.
Genuinely believe this too; if you look at the kind of guys Kentucky/Kansas have recruited over the past 15 years, we are almost never in on them.
it was clear why they hired him but it’s not that egregious. his brother was an assistant at tulane before this i believe. clearly he got hired because of his brother but it’s not like he was really unqualified
had no idea kessler was so big holy shit
Wow - kind of feels like UF 40 times from the Urban Meyer era but I’ll take it.
put a little muscle on that kid and oh my
jahvaree ritzie the next one to pop? Top 175 DL from NC.
don't know about next but we're apparently in the driver's seat
his time frame seems to have moved up but still nobody knows when he's announcing, at least from what I've seen
So this is pretty cool. Largest donation in Carolina athletics history. Funds are earmarked for: Enabling Mack Brown's assistant coaches to receive competitive salaries, Kenan Football Center facility improvements and the football operating endowment.
They're naming the field after him.
When Mack was hired, I was pretty optimistic that he'd at least reenergize the fan base and recruiting would pick up, leaving the program in a better state for whoever came next. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine just how drastically he'd improve both of those aspects in such a short period of time.
I definitely underestimated how energetic and engaged he would be in this role. I think I also underestimated just how bad the Texas job is right now (for reasons I fully don’t understand).
yeah i know mack at texas ended poorly but he was a colt mccoy injury away from winning two titles with them which is not remotely feasible there anytime soon as things stand currently. he made that program great
Let’s not overstate that Colt injury. They weren’t overwhelming favorites in that game or anything (in fact 4 pt underdogs I think).
But generally I agree with the sentiment. Even playing for those two titles and beating “the greatest CFB team ever” is a hell of a run given what came on either side of his tenure.
buddy i will slander the sec any time i can
I will own that hiring Mack elicited. WTF from me. I was wrong and am so glad to be wrong.
did have a moment of I've we've made a huge mistake .gif for that hour or so that Greg Robinson was announced as our DC, very proud of the fan backlash nixing that one
carolina insider has been posting the radio calls of big games recently. just listened to the gio return and now the 05 duke game.
jones seems like a good dude and he’s not bad
but man the difference between jones and woody is just stark. i suppose if says more about how great woody was. he trounces jones (and i would bet jones would tell you the same)
Jones' voice just annoys the fuck out of me. he needs to start smoking a couple packs a day and then maybe I'll give him another listen.
I hate his voice and he's got no personality, you need at least one or the other
Woody is a legend but the last couple years of him calling football was rough.
he’s actually much more enjoyable on the podcast albeit very cheesy. but yeah he’s just really stiff and awkward on the call
final 247 rankings moved caleb up to #6 overall and our class to the #2 class
ouch, rough day for the "anti-UNC bias" bunch on IC
people are VERY mad that mark williams is ahead of sharpe don’t you worry
KBJ underwent surgery after injuring himself working out, the presumption being it's related to his achilles
I can't remember the Heels ever losing a triad parent's late spring wedding anniversary commitment.
Have to feel good about this one.
man I refuse to get my hopes up for Grimes
with that said I'm starting to get my hopes up for Grimes
some guy started a catch all thread for Grimes news btw, this is all the latest stuff
5/11/2020 - Announced he will cut his list to a top 3 on May 31st.
5/12/2020 - BrianDohn on Penn State board: "When I set out to write this piece, I thought the top three would be UNC, Georgia and either Penn State, Texas A&M or Ohio State. ...When I finished the reporting aspect of it, the only thing I knew for sure was UNC would be on the list."
5/12/2020 - Brian Donn on Georgia board in response to a question regarding if Grimes will last until December without committing: "No"
5/12/2020 - Brian Dohn on Inside Carolina: "I am not buying the travel time thing when it comes to Georgia but I think UNC has the most momentum right now."
Don Callahan in Weekly Scoop:
"The five-star cornerback's recruitment has been and will continue to be susceptible to twists and turns, but every source we spoke to fully expects UNC to make the cut."
"Furthermore, those sources are beginning to envision the Heels as the eventual victor in this recruitment."
"As for the other two spots, two very reliable sources predict Georgia, believed to be UNC's biggest threat, will miss the cut"
Heels_fan530: "I’m glad Don is hearing the same thing I am about Grimes. Our coaches feel like we land this kid."
pretty sure he would be our highest rated composite recruit in the last 2 decades
ACCN's showing our NIT semifinal against Rhode Island, it's wild seeing Larry Drew basically carry us down the stretch here
i would like to see the miss st nit game again. that shot ld2 hit over varnardo to win it was absurd. still remember exactly where i was for that for some reason
So Don is saying we won't be in Grimes final 3?
it appears to be that's what his sources are saying
Is he pretty reliable? That is going to be a major surprise if true.
He seems pretty plugged in when it comes to UNC's chances with a recruit, I'd take info about where other programs stand like that with a grain of salt though
Yea, I figured that much. Rusty put out today that he expects UGA to be in it. Our guys are worthless 90% of the time. They will only work when a poster sees bad shit in another teams site and asks them about it.
FWIW, Deana King, from the Heels Rivals site, who also runs the NC Prep site and is pretty plugged in to the NC (not as much Va) prep scene projects UNC, UGa and tOSU for Grimes.
it's cool getting highlight videos made of players on our team again, aren't even a bunch of filler plays in here, just 4 minutes of bombs
I went through this phase of quarantine about a month ago. Brown's highlights are gangbusters.
Also check out Javante Williams high school tape; man among boys stuff. This guy is kind of annoying but it's 16 minutes of bomb plays:
Wonder what happened to Mike Mason after he got kicked out. Him and Bowman damn. Fred Sparkman I remember haha
Went to some small school in Tennessee and was never heard from again
Man what a bust of a class that was
Isiah "Puff" Thomas
Who could have ever guessed that these kids wouldn't make it?
But they were key in the biggest win in program history.
I remember being so pumped for Terry Hunter after looking like an absolute monster during his limited snaps against Miami, which I think may have actually been his first game, and then dude just fell off the face of the earth, don't think he ever played football again after that year
JJ Jones announces for us a day early
first time watching his film, probably doesn't have the same top gear, but reminds me a lot of Dwight Jones
