RE: Recruiting 2017-18
Okay I'm done with my break from talking basketball.. Let's get down to it!

1. Tadas Kararinas IS eligible this year. He's pretty much an unknown. I will say this though: Findlay Prep isnt a school with a basketball team, its a basketball team with a school. He will come in with a grasp on the game, that's for sure.

2. Jayden Saddler has been on the Drexel "radar" since the Bruiser days, so I would not put much stock in him joining Drexel at this point. I saw him play a couple of years ago. He's small, like Kurk Lee looks big small. He's also Delaware Grad Devon Saddler's little brother. I spoke with his dad a bit at the tournament that I was at. Nice guy, so he comes from a strong, supportive, humble family which is always a plus.

3. Every addition that Spiker has made this season is 6'8 or taller. I dont think we've ever had a team this big before.

Perhaps that is to make up for all the short guys he brought in last year - Kurk Lee at a generous 5'10, Harper and Isabell at only 6'1.

What was your impression of the big guys in the scrimmage you mention on the blog? Do you think we'll get much contribution from any of them this year?

They looked good.. It was Perry, Doles, Butler, Demir, (I believe) Sam Green and Kararinas..

I think that Demir Perry and Doles will all see time at the "4." Perry apparently can run, Demir can shoot, and Doles i just a wildcard if you ask me. I like the "stretch 4" option that Demir brings to the floor. Judging from his numbers last year, he was a pretty good shooter too.

Kararinas I think will be the odd man out for this group.

Looks like you got your wish.

I wouldnt hold my breath on that one. He's been on the list since the Bruiser days.

There are reasons to be excited about this kid. He's apparently an excellent shooter who has flown way under the radar.

Another article from Josh Verlin at COBL.
http://www.cityofbasketballlove.com/news...id=1566508

I would generally wonder bit about getting a guy not being recruited by other D1 schools, but I also had reservations about a 5-9 guy and some random kid from Iceland too and I think that turned out okay last year.
