    There are about a dozen guys on Jitoboh's high school team (Hamilton Heights) who will be playing Division 1 college hoops, including several tall players. We have scholarship offers out to at least 2 more Hamilton Heights players. 8 ppg on that deep a team isn't so bad.

    It seems that Calipari is altering his OAD philosophy slightly. In lots of recent seasons it was a senior that came to their rescue in tight games in the NCAAT. And they're a much better team right now when Reid is on the court.

    Someone had previously mentioned Blackshear as a potential grad transfer if Buzz leaves, I'm watching him tonight and he's LEGIT. We'd be final four ready with him on board.

    Agreed but he is playing so well he might be better to stay with or without a coach. I really hope we get him but this guy very important to VT.

    So are we rooting for Duke here? If VT loses maybe they don't match TAMU's offer for Buzz; He leaves for TAMU; Blackshear grad-transfers to UF; Jayhovah is treated for 12 month erection shortly after UF's 3rd national title in April 2020?

    Talking about hijacking a thread! I guess we will have to start a different Grad Transfer one when we actually get a GT.

    Is UCLA still considering offering Buzz? UCLA is a higher profile job. Also, Blackshear, who is from Orlando, might be interested in returning close to home regardless of a coaching change at VT.

    Blackshear plays a lot like Al Horford. It would be great to get him.

    Yes he's in between Horford and Richard. I think Horford was better with the ball but Richard could position the floor better. Blackshear does have a better range.

    If Blackshear wore a Duke jersey he would not have been in foul trouble last night.

    Other than the fact that he is from Orlando, is there ANY reason to think he might be interested in transferring to UF?

    He is a very good player and would be an outstanding fit.
