    I dont think Fran would say that unless he is. That doesnt mean that he wont end up at UConn if someone in his camp wants some $$$$$.

    Commitments from US players doesn't often mean squat. I'm not sure why this would be any different.

    Thankfully foreign scouting is a tad better than it was in 2004.
    To be fair, international scouting peaked in 1994 with Jimmy Dolan.

    Except Theo Davis wasn't 7' tall, but don't let facts get in the way of a good story.

    The real question that needs answered is does the NBA need Giorgos Tsalmpouris?

    Not that I think it matters (the lack of info on UConn sites is a big point) but the article came out today. The date on the post is 14/05/2014 and I think Europeans write it as Day/Month/Year.

    Are you sure it's not from the 14th month?

    You and your melodrama again.

    You are making that more exclusive than it is. NBA scouts look at a lot of guys, including 17 year-old 7 footers that are not ready to be major factors in Year 1 .Recall that DeAndre Jordan could have been a 1st round draft pick out of high school, yet only played 20 mediocre minutes a game at A$M. Fred said "maybe" to whether he would need to redshirt, according to the Tailgate Tour thread.

    So what's your point? Look I probably agree with you about 90% of the time, but it's looking more and more that the assumptions that a lot of people made earlier in this thread are false. And it was mainly, IMO, based on the fact that the guy wasn't in the ESPN top 100 or had any stars. If he had dingleberry's highschool rankings Top 50 and 4 stars we would have been all over this guy. That's all I'm saying...drama free zone right here.

    In my eyes, you're now the coolest poster by far on CF (yeah I know that really isn't saying a whole hell of a lot) for reminding me of this gem! Now I just need to get my hands on a copy asap!

    The real question that needs answered is does the NBA need Giorgos Tsalmpouris?

    Did you read in the Omaha article about who Hoiberg said he would take first in the NBA Draft? Joel Imbiid!

    Fred is focused on the big men right now. Clearly he wants GT to be the next one . . . and wants him to be ours.

    Re: New foreign commit - Giorgos Tsalmpouris

    For those of you who say he is too small - he looks like he has a big frame and his legs look thick. The new updated info says he is at 230. He is only 17... from the time I was 17 until I was 20 I increased my weight by about 30% and that was not fat.
