Lets Go MARFO!!!

Kevin Marfo is announcing today and it is down to us, George Washington and Providence. I am surprised by the lack of chatter in general on the board about this young man. He is a tough rugged power forward who would desperately provide some toughness in the post which we have been desperately lacking. It also wouldn't hurt to get a BABC player who has played for Leo Papile. We haven't been a factor in his pipeline for a long time. Carlos-Reyes, Diallo and Marfo could be a nice young front-court that we can get excited about!

Yeah, he usually loses these announcement battles. I'm lukewarm on his recruiting so far, but I am not going to get excited in advance until he actually lands one of these local kids that can play.

hoops w31rd0s live on their own planet.

As far as Marfo goes, iwnh. Even if he commits today, he will sign somewhere else on deadline day.

It's pretty hard to tell what he has right now. Give me a game or two and we can begin to make talent evaluations.

Marfo would be a big deal for BC people will love him.

You don't know what you're talking about. Marfo is a good player but he's not some impossible get. His top 5 was BC, PC, GW, URI, and Depaul. Kentucky is not coming to swoop in and take him away. If Marfo should choose BC I would be more worried about Graves leaving than Marfo.

Ty Graves is not going anywhere else. Marfo is a 5, a ferocious rebounder, but not a scorer. In JC's system the 4 needs to be able to shoot and handle. A slightly taller Pat Heckman is his type of 4.

I'll stop worrying about the Rhode Island schools when BC actually beats them out for someone.

We beat Providence for John Carlos Reyes just months ago.

Well you know better than me about the specifics but in my mind anyone who commits that early is a risk to a decommit. The dad seems to have a good relationship with our coaches, which I'm sure is helpful.

Providence never gave him a commitable offer.

BC is a better place to go to school than PC in literally like every discernible measure. We should always out recruit them.

If I remember correctly, I think longdistanceeagle said that BC did outrecruit PC for JCR (im assuming that means he had a PC offer).

You're overlooking the "proximity to strip clubs" measure.

The buffet at the Foxy Lady might be PC's best recruiting tool

The EA crowd is stressed out because a key board member is reporting that Marfo is headed to GW.
Losing out to Lonergan would be a HUGE kick in JC's junk.
There would be no way to spin this one.

Now that same poster is writing that Marfo is headed to BC.
His grammar is crabbed at times.
Marfo announces at 5pm.

Why don't we just have longdistanceeagle (who is probably Jim Christian) just tell us. Dude knows everything.

I am not Jim Christian, but I do know him and tell you what I can. He is waiting for the decision, just as we are .He feels It is between Bs and GW. And to provide more food for thought, he is pretty confident he might have recruiting wrapped up by the early signing period if everything goes as anticipated. That also depends on Marfo'd decision.

Jim Christian will NEVER read a message board. He has no interest in what others say or think. He has his plan, his coaching staff to bounce ideas off of, and several close friends, mostly coaches, who he concerns himself with.

Ooh this is fun. I guess Alpha Diallo is the aspirational recruit and Justin Route is the safety pick. Are we still in on Grant Williams or Richard Freudenberg?

Why be concerned what the 8 fans of the program think? I mean, seriously.

I think longdistanceeagle is the SISTER Christian.

It would be nice to have more than one woman on the board.

I am not a female and I didn't say anything about an aspirational recruit. There are two guys he really likes who are ACC caliber players and fit his system and he feels he can successfully recruit.
