    A little Stutz info

    Long story short, he's visiting Oct. 20th.

    But let’s start with Stutz (pronounced STUTTS), who has an unbelievable story — some of which you might have read here.
    A year ago, he was a 6-foot-8, 190-pound small forward from tiny Plaza Heights Christian Academy (enrollment: 37), wondering if any NAIA schools might be interested in him. If not, Stutz reasoned, he’d follow the lead of his older brother Logan, who plays for Butler County.
    Now, he’s a 7-foot-plus center, about 220 pounds, with 8-10 Division I scholarship offers — including K-State. Kentucky and Kansas are interested, as is Marquette, but those three universities are adopting a wait-and-see attitude. Basically, they want to see if he dominates at North Kansas City, and then they’ll probably offer Stutz late, which is convenient because he doesn’t plan on signing during the early period.
    For now, though, it’s Iowa State, Nebraska, Missouri State, Wichita State, St. Louis, SMU, Northwestern and the Wildcats.
    “Any offer would have been good,” said Bill Stutz, Garrett’s father.
    That was before his son blew up on the AAU circuit. Participating in the Kingwood Classic in Houston in April, Scott Wedman, Garrett’s AAU coach, contacted Bill Stutz after the first day.
    Wedman had already received six phone calls from interested coaches.
    “Every coach always says (Garrett) is so skilled,” Bill said.
    Now, Dad is biased. He admits as much. But he’s also a coach, having coached Garrett for two seasons at Plaza Heights, and it’s clear the son has gleaned some of his feel, his touch from being around the game.
    Because he wasn’t always a classic big game, there isn’t much he can’t do.
    He can shoot it from 21, 22 feet. He has great shooting form — his father says Garrett shoots 80 percent from the free-throw line. He can grab a defensive rebound, take three dribbles and not trip over his feet.
    Plus, he’s 7-foot and growing, with a 7-foot-2 wingspan and a reach of 9-foot-2.
    He was at Missouri State last week and at Wichita State over the weekend. Here’s his schedule for the coming weeks: nothing this weekend, at Nebraska Sept. 15 for the USC football game, at Northwestern Sept. 29 for the Michigan football game, at K-State Oct. 6 for KU-K-State, at Kentucky Oct. 13 for Midnight Madness, and at Iowa State Oct. 20 for the Oklahoma football game.

    A seven-footer who shoots 80% from the free throw line? Nice!

    I didn't think that was genetically possible for somebody that tall to shoot that well from the line.

    The funny part is I would rather have a Stutz at this point in my life than a slut at this point in my life.

    Never thought I would say something to that effect. I must be getting old. Either that or my wife has me brainwashed. I will let you know after I mow the yard tonight and rub her feet.
