    recruiting tidbit from slu board

    Will Clyburn has been in for his official visit since Thursday. His mom flew in from Detroit to be part of it. His head coach (not John McIntyre, who is the assistant) drove him in. Coach said it was easier to drive than fly from Marshaltown, Iowa.
    He is a very nice, quiet kid. Very clean cut. Described as a gym rat.
    In his bare feet he is probably 6'4--6'5". He played open gym with our guys. This is the second time I have seen him play. He rebounds well for a thin kid. Very athletic. He can bring the ball up the floor and lead the break like a guard. He can slash to the hole. He has a good outside shot, not a great outside shot. He has good form, and the shot should get even better. Truthfully, he has a lot of the same skill sets as Tommie Lidddell, only he is stronger already. . Right now he would probably start as our 3-man. He presently is better than any of the freshmen. Remember, he is older, and this was the first day of scrimmage for the freshmen during their freshman year. He and all of the freshmen will get better, but the freshmen in general were playing like freshmen do--a little timid, deferring to the upper classmen. He is being recruited to play the 2-3 position.
    He is a priority recruit and we are in very good shape with him. Our main competition is Iowa State. I would not be shocked to get a verbal commit in the near future.

    Huh? Never heard of the kid. Why would a Detroit kid fly into Marshalltown and why would SLU mention this on their site?

    This whole post is confusing. Who is slu? I'm just not getting what the OP is saying here. Where is he visiting?

    Re: recruiting tidbit from slu board

    My fault,
    St. Louis UNiversity is recruiting him and it sounds like they flew in the kids mom from Detroit and they drove the kid to St. louis from Marshalltown.

    Re: recruiting tidbit from slu board

    Slu= St. Louis University

    Will Clyburn is a recruit that is originally from Detroit that is playing juco ball at MCC. He was at ISU's elite camp along with his teammate DeMarcus Phillips who ISU is much more involved with.

    Thanks for the info bills16.

    I think that Ejim fills that spot. No need for Clyburn now. It sounds like they still want Phillips pretty badly though.
