Bob Gibbons TOC- Day Two Rundown, Part Two
commits to gmu
He grew 2 inches in the midst of giving his commitment to GMU.
So Hewitt goes head to head with Lonergan and GMU comes out ahead. Not surprising. I predicted this pattern will be maintained for some time.
HEard through the grapevine that our old friend Roland H was behind this signing. I thought he couldn't recruit?
Sounds like a nice player but not a blue chipper. Don't make too big of a deal of us losing him to GMU. It means nothing. And, given GWs recruiting history the past half dozen years or so, it certainly does not mean that RH was in fact a good recruiter.
Don't get carried away Cutis. For all we know, Lonergan wasn't excited about him and the supposed "interest" from GW was from the old regime. It's so hard to know anything about anything right now, without inside information.
I should add that Lonergan could land Omar Williams Part II tomorrow and Cutis would complain (I mean that literally, I've never seen a fan ride a good player as hard as Cuits and Omar, so I'm going to take your judgment with a grain of salt -- especially talent you haven't seen yet).
Cutis, i love it a pattern of one. that really is a big trend!
Is Holloway Houston's fourth cousin twice removed, otherwise I don't see how he could have been involved?
DEA- maybe we should wait and see if the kid is any good before we judge how Houston recruited at GMU.
Let me clarify. I'm not sure he will be any good, he's certainly not some can't miss recruit. It's also asinine to act like we were competing for this kid because there's not much evidence that the new staff had interest in him. I have heard though that Houston was heavily involved in bringing him in, both at GW and now. I am just saying that there's some myth going around this board that the only people he can get are his relatives and that's simply not true.
If he keeps adding inches 2-3 at a time, he'll be GMU's fall-back center by the time he's ready to play.
I'm definitely not going to get into the whole Roland thing again, BUT -
DEA if Roland is such a good recruiter, which players did he recruit to GW? I'm only aware of Daymon Warren and Noel Wilmore.
9/23 WaPo: signs with George Mason. Houston was able to prove a link between Holloway via Java man and Hewitt justly rewarded him with a life-time's supply of Slim Jims.
when is signing period?
