    Carrick Felix - originally committed to play at Duke, but, when Singler decided to return to school, Felix saw his opportunities to see significant playing time reduced....Guy wants playing time, we got playing time.....

    yeah this guy would be a solid pick up. We need to add depth at the 3. that being said all i have seen is his rivals page so i really know nothing about the guy but if hes good enough for duke sign him up.


    "Freddie knows the game," Bird said. "I'm sure he picked up a lot of stuff over the years from different people. College is different from the NBA, but I'm sure he'll do a great job."

    Yeah exactly bardman, not only was he good enough for duke to sign, but, he would have been breaking the barrier that Coach K has never signed a juco.....

    Based on what i've heard or seen - we have three schollies left for 2010 right?

    If so, we could easily add Royce White and Carrick Felix adding immediate help and setting the table for success long term with White (if he stays clear of Kenny Pratt and Sam Macks ol buddies...)

    ADDED:

    Here's a recruiting analysis from Rivals:
    "As a college prospect, Felix is a very talented performer with very good length on his ultra-athletic frame. Felix has worked very hard off the court to develop his now strong, athletic build. He still has major upside and a lot of room for physical growth and maturity. Felix is at his best when slashing to the basket in the half-court set, or in the open floor where he thrives, using his athleticism to make plays and finish strong at the basket. He is a very good mid-range player that is capable of knocking down mid-range jump shots consistently. He also possesses some range on his shot and is capable of stepping outside the three-point stripe, where he has good range on his shot. Felix has NBA athleticism, which allows him to make plays defensively that many cannot. His length allows him to reach into passing lanes and he also has good lateral quickness. He is an active rebounder that likes to compete for balls outside of his area. He also is a very good shotblocker that has good timing. His tenacious attitude on the floor also helps him to makes plays on both ends of the court. Big-time prospect that continues to improve."

    Check this out from the Dukie board
    Nate James saw Felix play when he was actually looking at another player (a 7-footer from Senegal, I believe, don't know the name) who plays for the College of Southern Idaho. This is certainly the "wide net" in action, something that many fans have argued for.

    Felix is apparently very athletic; there's a youtube video of him taking off at the foul line and dunking the ball during his college's initial public practice. Very few players can do that.

    The reports are that he is scoring somewhere around 16-17 points per game with good numbers also in rebounds and a surprising number of blocked shots for a player his size, which is 6'6" or thereabouts. Reports also talk about his hard work and dedication, and his Juco coach thinks he can play at a very high collegiate level.

    Also from the Dukie board - i found it interesting while discussing JUCO players in general but who was brought up?
    Exactly, remember Jamal Tinsley? He came from a JUCO school, went to Iowa St and had a great career with the Pacers and maybe a few other teams. He was on my fantasy team a few teams in fact. Anyway, Tinsley never even played high school ball! There are lots of diamonds in the rough type players. Remember Saul Smith? Started 2-3 years at UK and wasn't even a top 500 prospect. Adam Emmenecker from Drake averaged 4pts a game in HS. These are just guys off the top of my head. There have been lots though.

    Good stuff on this kid.....on the surface at least....

    Kind of an odd offer list:

    Arizona State
    Idaho
    Kent State
    South Florida
    Duke

    Which one of those teams doesn't belong?

    Word now is that list has gotten to be a bit different.....here's an article on his release. One bad aspect is he's from Phoenix and is interested in the Pac 10 - but, Coach TJ is a smooth operator!!!!

    That list includes Arizona State, UCLA and Washington State of the Pac-10, along with Arkansas, Baylor, Boise State, Hawaii, Kansas State, San Diego State, UNLV, Villanova and NCAA runner-up Butler, which lost the championship game to Duke on April 5.

    Felix leaves Duke in search of better fit; Former CSI star says academics, playing time not behind his departure

    Looks like the competition has ramped up considerably. I wonder if this Felix kid would really be committed to a school like ISU looking back at the Dendy situation.


    P.J. Farmer rocks!
