    I read that thread. They got the info from PPU, which has little credibility. Scheer and Gershon have both indicated that no such visit is scheduled and that Brown is all but committed to Nevada at the moment.

    That was pretty much the forgone conclusion after his third visit.

    Yeah I'm just glad he finally got it over he went on and on with his recruitment. I really wanted him at UCLA, much prefer him over Shareef, but he just wasn't ready to commit and they got tired of waiting. Musselman could be very good for his career.

    Shouldn’t have put Arizona on his list if he wasn’t going to visit. Bizarre recruitment all around

    I've been deliberately avoiding Arizona basketball news, I didn't need to add another reason to drink. I tune in today and see all this...

    What the what? A few legit starting caliber transfers and a few high level recruits with maybe another to add? How the hell did this come about?

    I honestly thought next season was toast... a year with a new coach, brought in as fast as they could find an acceptable one, and a dearth of talent for the poor guy to work with.

    I also hope that this causes Miller to tap into the coach he was his second season here. Other than that first season, that was arguably the least talented team he's had and they were literally inches away from the final 4.

    Sean Miller, coach for your life!!!

    A little bit of luck and a lot of hard work. Miller had pretty much been recruiting with one assistant and a scandal hanging over him. Every time Brandon Williams visited another school Miller flew to see him after every visit. When he decomitted Arizona had zero recruits and when he recommitted Arizona had two top-100 recruits and two quality grad transfers. Doutrive and Thielemans probably aren’t coming here without the Book stuff and Luther doesn’t transfer unless Pitt imploded. Right now they’re an athletic but raw team but it should be Miller’s best ball-handling backcourt since McConnell/Johnson. I was so tired of watching PJC/Trier not being able to control the ball in traffic. PJC struggles to pass into the post because he had slow feet. Coleman is short but explosive. Williams is a 5* PG and not the Turner/Simon kind.

    I don't think Williams is any better a prospect than Turner was, the problem with Turner is ARizona never got to see the real kid because of his alcohol and drug problems. I pointed some of that out before he ever played there, his last year of HS was a huge red flag and the kid just went the wrong way at ARizona. I've heard Jerime Anderson did the same thing at UCLA, got to college immediately got so heavily into the party scene he was just not the same. Williams is a very talented kid who doesn't appear to have any of those issues so he'll probably be a MUCH better player. I saw Turner a lot in HS, he had NBA all over him, needed to shoot it better but he had the rest of his game, but he had so many personal issues it killed his chances. The one issue I had with Williams was he has a low release on his shot, it's a push really, not sure that will fly in college but he's so good off the bounce he'll have guys playing off him a bit anyways. Scoring PG and MUCH better than PJC.

    You assume he'll be around at least 3 years so assuming ARizona doesn't get hit hard eventually over the FBI story, he's a great piece to build around.

    USC is loading up in the next few classes, they got Okongwu today, will get the older Mobley. They appear to lead for Stanley, and there's talk that Josh Green really likes them now too, he's visited twice unofficially recently, seems like even though he's not a Compton Magic kid he may have ties to Mobley the dad. I doubt they get both Stanley and Green, but if they get one with Mobley and Okongwu that's a nice class. But you would assume if USC gets Stanley, Miller will get Green.

    Turner was a risk but Miller had to take a chance. Nobody was surprised when he flamed out. Williams is a good kid with an excellent support system. After looking he’s actually a 4* composite but a 5* on Scout. UCLA fans will say it’s because of Gershon.

    no we all wanted him after he decommitted, we all liked Williams quite a bit.

    USC is still loading up, they're goign to get both Mobleys and Johnny Juzang, all 3 apparently committing this week. It's weird Compton Magic is an Adidas team about to steer 4 kids to a Nike school, you can almost see them about to change to Nike the way it's going. Juzang is 2020 so probably doesn't impact their chances with Stanley and Green too

    It's one of those what can you do scenarios, if you ban hiring dads but don't ban hiring AAU coaches to get kids it's not fair. So they try and dissuade people but in the end, coaches do it because it works.

    He's going to get 4 players 4 star or better in the next few classes by doing this, maybe more. Unless they get hit with probation, and they probably won't since they sat Melton, they're going to recruit well. If only Enfield could coach

    He definitely has no shame. Say what you want about Miller but he would never hire a recruits parent to get recruits.
