They blocked me! I blame refs in Phog a few years ago!

We'll see if Bill talks about Bryce directly. There is Fin aid agreement and another document If I remember correctly.

From Bill Haisten's column today...

Quote:
Wednesday is the first day of an eight-day NCAA signing period. Trey Phipps, Thompson’s Booker T. Washington teammate, signed with OU on Wednesday.

For Bryce Thompson, there is the option of waiting until April to sign his letter of intent. The extra time would give the Thompsons a chance to monitor NCAA-Kansas developments. In September, Kansas received from the NCAA a notice of rules-violations allegations.

Rod Thompson says there be no waiting. He says Bryce “definitely” will sign his Kansas letter of intent this week.
A few OU notes from the column...

Quote:
Pooh Williamson now is an OU assistant. Williamson was Thompson’s predecessor at TU’s point-guard position, and they’ve been friends since they were little guys in Beggs.

...

Rod Thompson paraphrases some of Self’s winning pitch to Bryce: “Elite players go to elite schools. If you’re an elite quarterback, you go to OU. If you’re an elite basketball player, you go to Kansas. You were custom-built for this.”

What about all those elite point guards in the league from Kansas, Bill?

Yeah, I know Self has put some decent bigs in the league (Morris bros.. Jackson, Embiid, Oubre, Wiggins, Gooden) but his track record with guards is not great at all. Graham is having a good year so far this year, but even if you threw in Brandon Rush & Mario Chalmers, not one G has made a big impact or even average double figures in the NBA. Rush & Chalmers are the only ones that made a "career" out of the NBA.

Considering the number of 4 & 5 stars or Mickey Ds he's recruited, that is pretty lame.

I know Wiggins was tall but he is/was essentially more of a guard right?

Was 6'8" now listed at 6'7' with new NBA rules.

Plays on the perimeter, more like a Jimmy Butler, Tatum or Gordon. But, he is listed as a Forward, SF, with the TWolves.

The point of lack of guards in the NBA from KU is still the same.

Every player you named there has been a disappointment outside of Embiid and maybe Gooden

Well, Marcus Morris has had. A pretty good career, but he’s not close to a star.

Yeah and everyone said Markieff would be better, just goes to show skill is trumping raw athleticism in the NBA today.

I prefer the 3 or 4 star for 4 or 5 years than the 5 star for 1 year.

I prefer a talented and deep veteran team and adding a 5 star to put us over the top while we win a national title.

Itís never happened, but a guy can dream

well ... I dont want it to appear that I wouldnt welcome a kid like that. I certainly would. But I'd take Hollis Price's contribution to this program over that of Trae's.

I'd take 1 year of Trae over 4 years of Rashard Odomes, Christian James, and Muni.

On the court - 100% agree, but Trae's value to the program goes well beyond what he did on the court.

His, likely, financial contributions aside, the publicity and track record of showing kids you can be a one-and-done kid at OU are hard to quantify. I often equate on the court success with overall program success, but there is more too it than what happens on the court.

Having Blake (2 years) and Trae in the league is big for OU - just look at the practice facility as an example.
