2017 - C - Mo Bamba (Offer)

Wonder why

I’ll take Michigan. Jerry Meyer can have the field.

Why do you keep saying this? Just being positive/ willing it into existence? Honestly duke sounds right but why compete with all those all blue chips, we could provide big minutes on a very good team that he can interplay with Wagner and Wilson/ teske. Honestly I’d like to see teske red shirt if bamba cones. Why not?

Definstly livers. Even without bamba I’m circling next year as our best team since elite eight. I really have faith in the

X Brooks
Maar Watson poole
Mathews Duncan
Wilson livers
Wagner teske

Put donnnal in there maybe? Or better yet a graduate transfer pg makes way more sense. Possibly to even start. No knock on x but it’s hit far fetched for a spike like trAnsfer to come in and win that Job/ play big minutes. I’m convinced that roster bamba or not is going to be elite defensively. Wagner being featured as a jr in a trio with maar and Mathews. Running the floor. A very different belein team . I’m excited.

I would love to know if CoryR had legit info on this one. Really hoping so.

JB may not inundate kids with constant texts and communiques, but when it comes to live evaluations he’s out hitting the bushes just as hard as any other high major head man.

Saw 33 new comments cuz you merged the topics and thought we got a commit for 5 seconds…happiest 5 seconds of my day



Alfred Hollins is a guy who has mentioned us recently was on the other team, also hope we look at the Forrester kid form Bamba’s team as a 4 in the 18 class.

6 points and 5 rebounds in 32 minutes…?

Yeah Bamba isn’t an offensive force at all besides put backs and dump offs, in this game a real focus was stoping Ayton who is the number 1 player in the country. Could see Bamba staying a couple of years wherever he goes due to his skill level, Nerlens Noel would be a good comparison.

He’s raw. Noel is a great comparison.

That article definitely makes Duke sound like the team to beat.


I think that’s the case for any top 25 player who cares about academics

Here’s the ESPN update

And some other recruiting notes

On Texas: “The family loved it. It’s a very big university. I think we were able to, in 48 hours, see how I would look as a potential student-athlete there.”

On Michigan: “That was my first official visit, so that kind of set the tone. Obviously Michigan is probably one of the greatest universities in the world and it’s set to such a high standard, as far as academically and athletically. They do things the right way.”

According to multiple sources is the Wolverines and Longhorns have the edge in his recruitment, and John Beilein and Shaka Smart were both at his game on Sunday at City of Palms.

College coaches involved in his recruitment don’t think the leaders are set in stone, though.

“Speculate anything on Mo and you might be right,” one coach said.

Like Duval, it’s been difficult to get concrete info on Bamba’s recruitment – because he simply doesn’t talk to many people about it.

“He likes to keep to himself,” a source close to Bamba said.

One thing Bamba and Duval have in common is some of the questions surrounding whether they’re indeed college-bound. It hasn’t been a secret for Duval, given his time at API and potential NCAA issues. He insists he’s definitely going to college, though. The whispers around Bamba began only recently, but it does appear there’s a slight chance he doesn’t play in college next season.

I obviously agree with the sources. Michigan leads.


Dude your killing me. Will you please private message me what you know And how? I promise I will not repeat it

Or are you just completely full of if? I believe you kinda cause your so confident and it does make sense. I think duke is really our main competition. I don’t believe in Texas or Kentucky on this one. Coach k or Michigan. I’m praying their bigs stay or are forced to stay cause of injury or a bad year. Bambas game and particularly his d makes us top ten easy. Top five probably. National champs baby . Placing the futures bet in the first five minutes of it happening.

End hopeful rant.
