    Why doesn't he just commit already? We're easily his best offer by far.

    I guess he's holding out for better offers, huh? Probably wants a Wisky offer?

    And I can't wait to see everyone give up on him if he does get a Wisconsin offer.

    He is only a sophmore, I had no idea where I would want to go at that age and I didn't play ball.

    You must have missed the memo that he is a 2013 kid, the recruiting process is just getting started for him.

    Re: Basketball Recruiting: Matt Thomas meets The Mayor

    Would be great to add another dead-nuts, eagle-eye, sharpshooter like Scott. Can always use a guy who can shoot like that. Of all the guys this staff has been recruiting, an ace shooter is the missing piece. Not to say guys like Okoro can't develop their shot, but this guy is already a great shooter.

    I remember seeing some tweets from WisBBYearbook this past weekend. Thomas had some good games in a tournament. 30 pts, lots of threes, long-range.

    From the tone of the article (if that can be judged), sounds like the visit went well.

    You're usually a horrible troll, but this is especially bad work.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    Re: Basketball Recruiting: Matt Thomas meets The Mayor

    I've heard about this European camp that was mentioned. Also, in the NBA draft coverage, it was mentioned that the Timberwolves had some of the best European scouting out there. I wonder when Fred is going to capitalize on that. Maybe someo of his Minnesota contacts could steer a few kids this way. Might be a nice addition down the line.

    I talked to Thomas tonight. Said that he felt good out there. I'm hearing that he's had an impressive week.
