    Amir Harris is the real deal. Legit 6-5 PG. Good athlete, great length, tight handle, terrific defender and an underrated shooter.

    There’s a reason Dan Hurley wanted him. He would be a great get for Mason.

    I remember him decommiting after he was recruited over, figured he already picked a new school. I’d love for him to come to Mason but I hadn’t seen anything on us being interested in him.

    Could you imagine a 6’5 Pg playing for us. Been a while.

    Schmidt is a great coach that is still a hair below .500 in A10 career wins. Mobley was a CCSU transfer and Adams main recruiting competitor was Jacksonville. Time is on DP’s side with a 5 yr deal to build it his way. BE and AC obviously understand the path being taken.

    I had heard we weren’t interested, but if it’s true we sent a coach to one of his games, maybe that has changed.

    I really like the kid but unfortunately I don’t get a say who we recruit. :D

    Here is tape from his game last night. It shows the good and the bad.

    Just think of Goanar Mar as a senior... Even Greg Calixte if he continues his current trajectory as a forward.

    It took Schmidt 5 years to get the Bonnies into the tournament -- and that was a surprise run through the A-10 tournament to get there. He never got Robert Morris to the dance.

    He could be a secondary ballhandler, like Kier is this season, and play mostly off the ball.

    Yeah, I got confused. Thought I was looking at tape of Amir Harris for a second. Which is dumb, because I’ve seen Harris’s tape before and loved it.

    All I know is, we could really use a PG either in this class or the next to eventually take over for Otis after he graduates. Maybe that's Javon Greene, but I'd rather he have competition and earn the job rather than just fall into starting because we have no one else to do the job.

    The way Kier has been attacking off the dribble lately, I think he may end up taking over the point for his senior year. Honestly, I think his skill set is much more suited to be a point guard anyways.

    Still, Amir Harris and Jalen Gaffney are at the top of my wish list for the next two years along with Qudus Wahab and now Jaylen Richard.

    Greene must have read this post and took it personally:

    14 points
    9 rebounds
    6 steals
    3 assists

    In a win over Richmond today.

    All I said was he was supposed to be a Sharp shooter and he isn't lol. That is all still true. I like Greene a lot but he is not half as effective outside as pros like gmujim said he was going to be. Great win glad for Greene and goanar for playing great today

    He is a freshman. Look back at Otis and Jaire’s freshman stats, they both shot a terrible percentage from 3 as well. They stayed in the gym and worked on their games and now are both excellent shooters.

    Javon is a hard worker and there is absolutely nothing wrong fundamentally with his stroke. Wait and see what happens to his shooting percentage as the game slows down for him. He’s gonna be special.

    The kid has all the physical attributes to be a great A10 PG, long and explosive. Paulsen's recruiting is catching up to the league for all you haters.

    I hope you're right man. I think his biggest talent is driving to the hole and finishing but he doesn't do it enough. The GW gsme really made me happy with what his possibilities are in the future. I just wish he would hit a damn open three lol but that goes for everyone not named Otis on this years team

    I think you're confusing me with the trolls lol. Only thing I speak negatively on are inbounding plays (and if you don't think we are brutal then you don't watch) and matchups on man to man. Love watching these kids play (except Davidson game lol)

    Mason offered Jamarius Burton, a 6-4 combo guard from Independence HS in North Carolina.

    Both UMass and Bona have offered among A-10 teams.

    Burton is a really high-level player. He would probably be already committed to an ACC school but he tore up his knee and it has taken time for him to get back up to speed.

    Obviously the staff wants to add at least one more 2018 player. It will be interesting to see if they fill both remaining scholarships or hold one.
