to me the 12th and 13th roster spots should be for a project big and for a development wing

You cant have 13 4 stars on the roster. Just doesnt work that way. Then youd be mad when 3 transfer every year. risk on the 12/13th man on the roster isnt a bad thing.

I agree, but we already have 3 project bigs. Two are RS freshmen and the other is a sophomore. How many should we have.

Who are the projects other than assanza/kur?

Garang is a wing and iwuakor was a 4* recruit with offers across the country.

Coach, hearing that since Lucas is not a full time assistant at uk he is not allowed to recruit Collins unless he makes it to campus. That could be a huge development in his recruitment. What are you hearing?

I still think OU leads but I havent heard lately. I did hear as dumb as it sounds that Collins was a plan B for them.

Collins family wants him close to home. I think we land him in the end.

Yeah, he is going to be a great player for ou really soon imo. Not close to a big man project.

Music to my ears. As raw as he appeared last year he seemed to have a pretty good midrange. If he develops a comfort within the flow to add to his athleticism, shot blocking, and rebounding look out.

Again I hope your right, as I have high hopes for Victor as well. He is a high energy guy, but he has to learn to control it sometimes.

He showed a pretty good mid-range jumpshot at times last year. Just quit shooting it later in the year.

Promising news on Collins if Lucas cannot be involved in his recruitment. This may end up being a fantastic class.

I've seen that some of the OU football recruits are friends with Collins. Clayton Smith for one...

It can't hurt that we have Kellen Sampson in our corner too. Seems like there's a strong family feel that could lead him to Norman. Fingers crossed!

I know Kellen wants a job at OU. At some point it will happen id guess. I know hes team griffin and all things Oklahoma... but he wants a college job.

I have a problem with that. It hurt us with Trey.

I want Collins pretty bad, just like everyone else. OU seems to set up perfectly for him. Coming in as an athletic stretch 4 working on his outside game. Perfect Manek replacement. I have no inside info, but I just don't have a great feeling about him. Seems like he would have pulled the trigger already once Lucas left Texas, if he really wanted to come. Seems like he and T Alexander are looking for excuses not to come to OU. I hope I am dead wrong!

Collins just got his UK offer. Have to think about that no matter who you love. Id bet a lot of money trey isnt coming. but who knows.

Lucas is at UK why wouldnt he think about them with Lucas there?

You and others have beaten the stay close to home drum and how important that is to he and his family. Also the fact that it should appeal to his ego that he is a plan B or C for them. Other than that, I agree he should be very interested in them. I just think OU wants him really bad, is by far closest to home, and is wanting to showcase his talents in a way Kentucky can't. I don't think OU as a program is too far below UK to not to be able to overcome some of these things. That being said, to each his own.

Sounds like we are kind of agreeing. If I were him i'd have committed to OU by now when you lay everything out on the table. He hasn't, hence my point...
