    We finally offered Amir Harris from Saint James (Md.)

    Will be interesting to see what happens because we are in on some really good looking 6-4ish PG prospects in the 2018 class.

    Somewhat surprised we haven’t offered Jaylen Richard yet. Also, Jamarius Burton is starting to get more P5 looks.

    Just guessing, but I don’t see Richard being able to play the point in the A-10. We have a chance to snag a big PG in the late period and I have to think that is a priority.

    No doubt that a primary ball handler is a priority. Richard looks more like a wing, and Jordan Miller fills that need. I haven't seen much tape on Miller from this year to see what his shot is looking like.

    It will be interesting to see if we will be able to land a PG like Burton or Harris given the considerable depth and experience we have in the back court. I mentioned on another thread that freshman aren't given the time to develop by fans that they once were, however it can also be said that players don't have the patience they once did.

    I agree with your point and kids are generally way more impatient than they used to be. Mirrors a society that wants what it wants and demands it right this second.

    This is actually the perfect time to recruit another point guard, though. Spend one year as apprentice to the best PG in our program’s history, then take the reins for your final three seasons and apply everything you learned.

    While we have some talented guards on the roster who can serve as complementary ballhandlers, there’s a huge opportunity at PG for the first recruit who grabs it.

    I don't really consider Kier or Greene a primary ballhandler/PG...they still seem more suited off the ball to me. A true PG can lock down that spot for three years if they come in next year.
