That's the way I see it.


so, wait.. are you saying... winning is good?

BC is still recruiting Daryl Reyonlds:

HOLYOKE, Mass. -- Worcester Academy 2013 power forward Darryl Reynolds said he played with a chip on shoulder. In a win against Cheshire Academy on Thursday - as part of the BasketBull Hoops Fest - Reynolds finished 22 points and dominated the offensive glass for Worcester.

In his first year, following a career at Lower Merion High School in Philadelphia, Reynolds has interest from mid majors and much of the Atlantic 10, but has yet to land an offer from one of the major conferences.

Boston College (who was in attendance), Providence, and Arizona State have all shown interest at some point, according to Reynolds. He currently holds offers from St. Bonaventure, Rhode Island, Fairfield, along with several oher A10 and mid majors.

"I'm new to the scene," said the 6-foot-8 forward. "I'm not worried about the whole college thing. I'm not going to make my decision until April."

"There's a lot of schools floating around. None of that matters, I just need to keep playing my game."

I interviewed Darryl Reynolds over the Summer. http://fansided150.com/2012/08/14/baske ... -to-coast/

Currently having interest from schools coast to coast, Darryl is in no rush to make his commitment. Boston College, Villanova, Providence College, Penn State, Temple, Arizona State, Virginia, Boston University, and St. Bonaventure have all expressed interest in the forward.
He only knows that he will visit Boston College and Providence for sure but there is a lot of time to visit other schools as his recruitment plays out.

My strong suspicion is that they're looking at Reynolds as Plan B if Rashard Kelly doesn't commit. Of course, Reynolds could move up on the list if he keeps playing the way he played against Cheshire Academy; offensive rebounding is one of the areas most in need of help.

Travis Jorgenson is on ESPN right now. MAN can he shoot it. He hit some really deep 3's. He's also a good distributor. The announcers were lauding how he controls the tempo of a game.

However, he has a bad pullup jumper.

hey also had a segment with Paul Biancardi and Malcolm Huckaby at halftime, talking about their BC days.

I don't necessarily agree with this. While he most likely won't come in and immediately make a Rahon/Hanlan impact, he will certainly be counted on to be play meaningful minutes next year.

Certainly an ACC player...in fact, Tennessee looks ready to offer

I disagree completely. he'd be yet another talented ball handler, probably earning 25-30 a game
with Rahon and Hanlan. this team will go to the NCAA's next year if he signs and our bigs stay healthy. the only things our squad is missimg right now is another big man and one more guard to give Rahon and Hanlan breathers. so basically, depth. a solid wing player would work too, although Lonnie, Dragicevich and Heck should be a solid combo.

Something Jorgenson said:
“I like the relationship with Creighton,” he said. “I like the way they play, fast tempo. I love BC, because they’ve been getting better every year, and all the coaches at Georgia Tech are really nice. I’m just trying to figure out the best situation.”


Him saying he loves BC sounds a whole hell of a lot better than our coaches being "really nice".. lets hope this works out for us

This may have already been posted -- apologies if I'm late to the party -- but just noticed that Missouri's coach now has a cloud over him, so hopefully a return to the original fold will be out of the question for Jorgenson:

http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketb ... eport-says

Surely it's BC or Creighton. C'mon, Travis -- a rising ACC program! A chance to play Duke and UNC regularly. A chance to make an impact from Day 1!

Quote from Rashard Kelly article.

Still, Kelly is averaging 12 points and 8 rebounds per game and making an impression on college coaches.

Massanutten head coach Chad Myers said Boston College is recruiting Kelly most heavily. He’s also receiving interest from Delaware, DePaul, George Mason, Seton Hall and Utah.

Kelly recently took an official visit to Boston College and pondered giving the Eagles an oral commitment. However, he said he wants to wait until after the season to make a decision.

Boston College has received a commitment from Kelly’s teammate, Garland Owens, but returning to Massanutten for a post-grad year is also an option for Kelly.

“They want us to come in next year and try to change the culture around the system,” Kelly said of B.C. “Right now they have a lot of shooters and they don’t really go at it. They’re kind of soft. If I go there, they want us to mix up the culture and bring in, not that rough lifestyle, but we’re not afraid of anything.”

Myers appreciates the tenacity.

Kelly has started every game and is playing 25 minutes out of 40 per contest. Myers said Kelly works relentlessly to get better. He said Kelly was already an outstanding rebounder when he enrolled in Massanutten, but wanted to make offensive improvements.

Im not sure how the current players are going to feel about Kelly/Owens calling them soft.

They're totally correct, I just find it interesting.

I find it hard to imagine the coaches saying that to recruiting prospects if they haven't already said it to the players in practice.

I'm glad they have 3 irons in the forward fire (Enes, Kelly and Reynolds). I'd be fine with taking any 2 of them. Enes seems most like what I'd guess Don wants in a big man. Reynolds is a physical big man who isn't afraid of contact. And, Kelly is a very athletic forward (who is probably the only one of the 3 who would also see time at 3). My only concern with Kelly is that he may be too similar to Owens.

I'm with you. A class of Owens, Drag, Jorgenson and Kanter / Kelly, would be great. Not that I think Heckmann will leave next year yet but they would probably be able to add another big in his scholarship spot if that's true.

Will be interesting how this pans out.

Why is Jorgenson a need? We have Hanlan, Rahon, Heck, LoJack and Drags. Why do we need a 6th guy who can play the 2??? I think the priority should be Kanter, Reynolds and Kelly... probably in that order. I'd take any two of them before looking at Jorgenson.

Jorgenson is a need because of our lack of depth with ball handlers. We have both Rahon and Hanlon out there for 35 minutes. There is no backup capable of handling the ball. There will come a time when one of Rahon or Hanlon will play poorly, get tired, or get hurt. If you have a capable backup that fits the offense's mold perfectly, it changes everything. He would keep the guards more fresh and tiring at the end ofthe game (missing FTs) should be less of a problem. It is basically asking how JD would have helped this team (Except Jorgenson is bigger and a better shooter than JD). Thus, the staff have identified him as a crucial part of this class.

I definitely agree they need a 4 before another point, but I get the logic behind it. For better or worse, Don is going to play a lot of 3 guard lineups and likes to have two guys with point ability out there. Jackson's handle has gotten better but he's definitely not a point, so we really only have 2 on the team. To run the lineup Don wants, a third point makes sense (cue comments about Jordan Daniels here, not that I necessarily disagree).

that is not at all why. To HJS, I think we can/should probably take all of them if they want to come. Deal with the wreckage later on.

We need another guard if we are going to play like this. But we need a big or two more. Point is you need to be 9-deep and at least 5-deep at the 2/3 guard spots to do what the Don wants to do. Currently he is 3 deep at the guard and 1.5 deep at the bigs (due to Clifford's injury). There simply is no bench at any of the positions if he wants to run a 3-guard offense. Heckmann is okay as a role player but that is it.
