    I watched the draftexpress interview with him from this summer. I think he views himself as a faceup 4. He said in that interview that he likes to mix it up in the post some. So I suspect if he has the freedom to shoot of a Horford or a Murphy, he would be fine.

    One reason of course is the school can not announce or even talk about a commitment. The school can only talk about players that have signed.

    Some people do just tweet it out, but I can see why most people would prefer to make a proper ceremony of it.

    Hell my high school used to have a signing ceremony for pretty much every athlete that commited to a D1 school (whether that was for volleyball, softball, baseball, football, whatever).

    Question: how is "Kevon" pronounced? Just like "Kevin?" Or "Kay-von?"

    Neither! Ke-vaughn. A little bit of both of your suggestions lol. At least according to the couple interview vids I just watched.

    I'm not nearly as confident about this one, but I still like the Gators here.

    Well, Scout has him as a power forward and numerous write ups this summer suggested his length and game were suited for the four, but I honestly don't know. He looks similar to Noah and Tyus physically at this stage to me. The great thing about our system is that a versatile kid can play both the three and the four. Given our need for posts right now, I would not be one bit surprised to see him some at the four if he can at least hit the 200 mark. Regardless, I am pleased to have a kid as talented as him wherever he plays.

    I never liked the way Mooney treated Lucy, so I don't care what he decides. :geek:


    I do hope Looney goes for the good guys, however. Fingers crossed!

    I'm not enamored with the big signing spectacles athletes make, but if it was already set up, why ruin it for the kid?

    Eh, I get it. You work your butt off to get to this point, why shouldn't you have a day to celebrate it? Not to mention, it's not like it hurts anyone. If anything, I think people make a big deal about it because it elongates the process in which we (as fans) learn of the decision.

    Interesting that Chad Lykins of Duke blog just changed his prediction to UF. Although a new writer is now going with UT. Maybe a UF vs UT battle.

    I saw that on Lykins. Though the guy that picked Tennessee freely admits he has no clue what will happen.

    Good point. While I'm not a huge fan of them, I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy the drama surrounding the moment.
