On the paywall,CW gives his info when he gets it. So you get early info. It is nice to get early info but I am doing because I want to support the business. If you are able to give up 10/20 $ a month I recommend giving it a shot for at least a month or two.
Is it basketball specific? Kind of tired of the fade from basketball to constant focus on football lately.

So any news on Gach? What are the chances we can get him?
All I've heard is that there are two heavy favorites being us and Minnesota. Obviously I have bias here, but I truly believe we're sitting better with him due to playing time.

I guess I would be more willing to pay if they had better sources in the past. Nothing against them, it just seems they didn't have much info to pass on before we already had it in the free area.

It's been said, but Marcus Carr returning to MInneapolis as expected is something I would prefer to happen soon. Would really help our case imo.

So are we after anyone else besides Gach? I’m or do we have to pay for that information now?
Is there significantly more basketball intel on this paywall? There does appear to be more focus on football on most paywalls I've seen.
One cheeky question here, one sincere, but I believe a single answer will satisfy both.

The premium membership here on CF is not centered around recruiting info. It's an initiative to pivot the company away from a strict reliance on ad-generated revenue. Premium member-only message boards are included, much of which is the usual suspects of topics. The same recruiting target information tends to come available on the public boards, but as a premium member you do get behind-the-scenes looks into the recruiting process itself.

As for the focus per sport, the basketball transfer market is obviously the hot topic right now, though what football news is to be had this time of year certainly is present too.

For me personally, the selling points to become a premium member are straight-forward:
  • No Ads
  • a weekly Insider blog/video from C-dub
  • a dark theme on the forums
  • a 'dumb' reaction option - still waiting for the first chance to use it
  • a koozie!
For the complete rundown of options, read here: https://cyclonefanatic.com/2020/04/announcing-a-new-business-model-initiative-at-cyclone-fanatic/

-----

Now back to recruiting, seems like Gach's twitter follows are about all we have to go on right now, and considering that's recently Prohm, Niang, and Monte, I'd say that's good news. You can't get better Cyclone ambassadors in your ear than those two.

Any updates on Utah transfer Both Gach’s recruiting status? – Dan Chang


A: I’ve been hearing the former Austin High standout is still unsure where he wants to go but could announce his decision as early as next week. Gach’s top five schools in no order are Minnesota, Maryland, Creighton, Iowa State and Auburn. The 6-foot-7 guard was testing the waters for the NBA Draft, but he could boost his stock for next year's draft if he returns to school. Playing immediately is his goal for college. If he transfers close to home, the chances of the NCAA granting him a waiver to be eligible in 2020-21 are heavily in his favor. The Gophers make sense in that regard. It also makes sense that Richard Pitino badly wants Gach to stay old in the backcourt. Gach has two years of experience playing in the Pac-12. He averaged 10 points for the Utes last season, which included a 19-point performance in a win vs. the Gophers. Gach’s versatility, length and athleticism would allow him to play all three perimeter spots and defend them as well. Seems like the perfect fit.

I'd need to see a list of who they have let in first.

this means Joe is coming back to Fayetteville and they kicked this kid to curb
Yep, similar situation to Harris. They landed Justin Smith and were suddenly over the limit and sent him packing
