Haha I know, right? I included it since he's listed as a SG on there. Wasn't sure what to post him as.

I'd be ok with us talking to ISU while there.........help a brother out!

UC has made his top 6 along with Iowa State, Texas, SMU, UCONN, and Florida.

That's a flattering list. Do we really need him though? If he's more like a sg then yes I can see it a litte, but if he's more of a pg then no.

#BearcatNation 08-17-2016 07:53 AM

247 says he's visiting here Sept. 15.

Can't recruit over the top of Jenifer? Broome hasn't played a single game either. Sounds like he's a combo guard anyway. With a list like that, bring him in. Figure out how to use him. Can't believe you're even asking that.

You can never have too many ball handlers. If the kid can play, I want him. It's that simple.

Agreed...we could definitely use him. If his position of top priority? No. We need front-court depth. But this would help round out our backcourt's future. We aren't going to be very deep this season, and it's already making me a little nervous. You don't want to go into every season like that.

GarradJ21 08-17-2016 08:15 AM

I believe I saw he will be visiting Sept 15th on his 247 sports page.

Perfect. We play Houston, one of if not the biggest home game of the year. UC will show out for him. He has some big schools he is considering. We gotta impress him.

Bearcat_NTS 08-17-2016 08:29 AM

Texas, Florida and UConn have not offered but still made his top 6...

TrillCosby 08-17-2016 08:31 AM

He's a combo guard/wing that is athletic and loves attacking the rim. Which is the common theme among Williams, Carr, and Gaines.

Haha sorry I'm just confused. One day, Williams or Gaines + Moore + an unknown is a pretty damn good class. The next day you're questioning whether we even need a guy with interest from UConn, SMU, Florida, Texas, and Iowa State. Not to mention Baylor, LSU, and NC State were cut from the list.

I mean trust me Ill be happy if he's a Bearcat. I just think Cane Broome is the real deal. Cane will be in the system for a year along with college experience. So the fact that Jennifer will maybe give Cane a break for 10 or so min a game is plenty. Darius most likely won't start until his JR. year. If Darius fills more of a SG then that's good. basically if he's combo then he would play Id say 15 min as a freshman so that's solid playing time as a freshman.

I don't see him choosing us and I hate to sound negative. Not too many schools beat out UCONN when it comes to PGs. Also every big school in Texas wants him. We will see. Again, Id be very happy with him being a Bearcat.

I feel like we have been on this guy for awhile, he's def a huge want for Cronin and company. His twitter follows a lot of UCONN stuff from a quick scroll that I did. He does follow Trevor Moore. Maybe they are friends or just know each other from playing basketball in the same state.

If we land someone over those schools that says a lot!

To me our '17 class looks like this:
Broome 4 star (Being that he has played college ball and produced)
T. Moore 3 star
Williams/Gaines 4 star
Hopefully a PF around 6'8" 4 star.

That's pretty good..Obviously a lot of hoping, but realistically it can happen. Def would love Darius too.

I guess I'm just not willing to plan things out that far. I have no idea how many minutes Broome will get. 30 would be great. If McNeill is legit though, there would be more than enough minutes for him...even with Broome, Cumberland, and Evans on the team.

Youre right. Sounds like he's a combo guard so plenty of minutes.

JasonS 08-17-2016 10:21 AM

Visiting Iowa St on 9/3 and UC on 9/15.

jacobkdoyle 08-17-2016 01:14 PM

@AlexHalsted
Texas/UCONN haven't yet offered McNeill but both plan to visit his school in September to further evaluate him before deciding on offers.

UCalum08 08-17-2016 01:46 PM

@JacobKDoyle @Dboogie_1 Come play with me bro , you'll love the campus 💪🏾 #PawsUp🐾

Trevor Moore is getting in on the recruiting action. Love it. Also, shout out to Jacob for doing some recruiting too!

He's going to terrorize the Big 12 for Iowa State...

You're half right. He will terrorize the Big 12...but for UC! 😁

I do think Iowa State is the favorite, unless Texas offers. I think UC is a close second and could be the favorite if a big12 invite comes.

GarradJ21 08-25-2016 12:07 PM

Chad would be able to tell us.

jacobkdoyle 08-30-2016 10:34 AM

As a guy who prefers McNeill over Williams, I'm psyched that he's visiting for a Thursday night game vs Houston. Williams will be visiting for the Miami Ohio game.

If we get into the Big 12, getting 2 kids from Texas in one class would be huge. Another reason I like McNeill over Williams. The NY pipeline is much less beneficial.

I mean by that logic outside of 3-4 guys, everyone has been a bust under Mick.
