Nolan Hickman just decommitted from KENT, maybe he's just mad that they offered TyTy. Hopefully, it doesn't indicate that KENT is anticipating a commitment.

Hickman claims that he wants to be closer to home. Don’t think it has anything to do with TyTy.

We're being told that it looks more and more like Tyty might be going to UK not Arizona. That Hickman decommitting is part he's homesick and part he thinks UK is recruiting other PG's.

Both UA and ASU are supposed to be frontrunners for Hickman. The guy who recruited him at UK is now an assistant at ASU, and since he's from Washington he may have connections to Jason Terry don't actually know. Also you would assume UW might be involved too.

Tyty should go to UA not UK as was mentioned it almost never works for the West Coast guys going to UK.

I wonder if the overwhelming intl feel of the team will dissuade domestic players like TyTy who may wish to play with kids they know from the circuits.

The video up on Bal makes him look like he has a very nice shot. Very skinny but then he'll be 17 when the season starts so he's young.

Looks to be a nice get.

The rumor is Mark Few is furious with Lloyd for taking kids he was recruiting for Gonzaga and that's why he called off the game with Arizona. If true, Few is being a baby college hoops is big business, you hire a guy like Lloyd in large part because of his overseas recruiting connections. Few couldn't have actually expected him to NOT recruit kids from overseas?

I agree. GONZ got Holmgren so no need to ***** over losing a recruit to one of your protégés especially if Lloyd was his lead recruiter while at GONZ.

Nah, despite the down year UK is in better shape than UA next year with 3 Top 30 recruits coming in and in the running for Jaden Hardy (#2 in 2021 class), they just have more talent overall, domestic or international.

The international kids are considered high level recruits but adjusting to US college game will take time.

Not surprised to see a kid choose Cal and Kentucky over zona and a new coach, but I do think playing with an almost entirely intl team comes into play.

I’ve always thought tapping the intl talent pool was a great idea, but seeing what’s transpiring in a little worried Arizona may become too dependent upon it. NCAA hoops bread and butter is still domestic kids. And we’ve seen before they like playing with guys they know from the circuits (even if they played against them).
