Is there a timeline for him at all?
Not that I’ve been told. Could be tomorrow, could be October. I do think we are in a very good position. From what I understand, we are currently his best offer.

He’s had a solid weekend despite not scoring a ton yesterday. He has a wrap on his shooting hand that’s affecting his shot a bit, but he’s doing other things well.

I passively keep up on the board. Do you go to the events or just communicate/work with the staff?

Barron and MeanStreets played 6 games over the last 4 days in Kansas City. At some point Barron had something happen to his right hand/wrist, because he was wearing a wrap on it in games 4-6, which really hurt his shooting ability.

In the first 3 games against Drive Nation, Team Final, and Team Herro, Barron went 15-31 (48%) from the field, including 6-15 from deep (40%). He averaged 12.6 PPG, along with 5 RPG, and 2.3 APG in 20.3 MPG.

Like I said, games 4-6 he was dealing with an injury to his shooting hand/wrist, so his offensive numbers were not great. He did show off his ability to get to and finish at the basket yesterday with a few nice drives.

Some of those short vids of him are eye-opening. He's kinda got that Ja Morant explosiveness.
Given his pedigree, offer list, and highlights, I think this one is a long shot. He thanked Felton for the offer on Twitter. Wonder if Felton had any connection to his dad?

I don't see any offers that are insurmountable. Some P5 offers, but nothing that I would call "basketball-centric" schools

Here are our '22 recruits offers:

Dinkins (Georgetown, Virginia Tech, DePaul, Penn State)

Fernandez (Virginia Tech, Clemson, Boston College, Wake Forest, Providence, Florida, Florida, Tennessee, Seton Hall, Oregon State, Arizona State, Georgetown, Ole Miss, Butler, Georgia, Texas A&M, DePaul, Illinois, Oklahoma State)

Nnaji (Minnesota, Xavier, Marquette, Arizona) -- I know there was some question about whether or not these schools backed off, but they at least offered at one point.

I’m pretty intrigued with the other recent offer - Emmanuel Ugbo. I think we might be his first offer. He’s a 6’8” forward who averaged double figures at the NBA Academy recently. Looks to have a frame ready for the A10 from day 1. From Nigeria, playing in Germany from what I can tell.

It should be noted and understood that not all "offers" are created equal. There are committable offers and non-committable offers. Vast majority of Justyn's offers were committable. Nnaji's were not.

Thanks for that. Obviously, as my other post exposed, I didn't realize who we had beaten out for these guys.

Very true. I've followed football recruiting for years and this is often the case. Hundreds of "offers" get sent out so the school will at least be in play... but unless you're a high-4 or 5-star blue chipper, coaches often have to give a kid the green light to publicly commit.

Yea. This guy definitely looks ready body wise.

We have to have that mentality that we can get anyone. KE is changing things here in ol' Funfax.

Northern Iowa in with an offer to Barron. Pleased to report he is still flying under the radar. Wouldn’t mind if he stayed that way.
