    I agree. Definitely mannerisms/appearance. Also how he effortlessly holds the basketball. His one handed jam looks like he holding a nerf ball. That's where I see the resemblance.

    I think some comparisons can be drawn between that Stinson/Blalock/Clark group for sure.

    Wigginton has that scorers mentality and can use his strength to score in the paint and draw fouls much like Stinson did.

    McNeil reminds me a bit of Blalock. Lightning quick and so long.

    Lewis has some similarities to Clark in build and length. Clark was more athletic Lewis is the much more polished scorer.

    I think its safe to say this trio will take over games the same way Stinson/Blalock/Clark did at times.

    I think both McNeil and Lewis have a great shot to be 40% from 3 in college. Both have pure strokes. Wigginton is going to draw a lot of attention driving to the hole. Just sayin...

    If Lewis can hit 3's next year, I think he'll get to play a lot of minutes because of the need for players who can space the floor.

    I always hate to click in this situation and find that we weren't recruiting them before.

    Not sure, but didn't a follow-up tweet suggest it was due to an assistant that left, who I believe is now at LSU? Wouldn't be surprised if he's another pickup for LSU and Coach Wade.

    Lose Allan, gain Bamba. Wouldn't complain if I was a Texas fan.

    So do we get another year of Shaka not knowing how to coach and utilize 5-star talents?

    How many more before Texas starts to get impatient...

    Home run for Shaka..lakalaka. I love when the top notch guys come to the conference just because I will end up watching more of them.

    Texas may finally end Kansas' winning streak but there is no way I'm betting on it.

    Shaka hasn't been all that successful without Will Wade on the bench beside him.

    Won't challenge them next year. If Jones comes back they should be a tourney team but who knows. Bamba is a really good shot blocker and rebounder but much of an offensive game. Huge get though.

    Still two more top recruits out there
