    This one spot will dictate DPs career here. If it's Kier or bust he better be working his ass off to keep him.

    Fair enough. Paulsen relies on finding diamonds in the rough. He isnt locking up four and five-star guys year after year. I think Pauslen and staff have an eye for talent especially Guards. But I think they lack the ability to convince prospects with multiple offers to come to Mason.

    The Recruiting Police might get me for this but Noah Farrakhan 4 star (Youtube the kid he is ridiculous) just committed to ECU. He held offers from Maryland, Seton Hall, Penn St, Wake Forest, Minnesota, Miss St, Pitt, Tech, Florida VCU and UMASS among others.

    Great get for ECU and very glad he is not spending his years in the A10

    My guess is he is not long for that dumpster fire...

    To bring it back to Mason, looking at ECU's verbalcommits page, they also have an offer out to Erik Reynolds, maybe that's one less school we're competing with for him?

    Sleeper you should apply to work for verbal commits since you love reporting about where every kid commits.

    Lol well no one is committing here so might as well see where kids we should be competing for are going.

    It is fun watching kids I follow that I know could help our program that go to shittier schools. (sarcasm). Unlike a lot of the grandpas on here I like watching Ballervisions, Ball is Life etc that covers high school kids. I also like researching recruits (no expert). I have been right a lot (pretty much everyone of Paulsen's horrible recruits, Bonez Hyland, Kellan Grady, Bona big man, Reuter sucking etc) and wrong some too (JDS, Carterare Gordon). I think you are the video guy for ByGeorge so you too should appreciate some of the Ballervisions and competitors products because you do very similar good work. If that is not you then please pass that along to the guy if you know him.

    The dumbest things these boards constantly preach is George Mason University is unable to recruit a higher caliber of player. It is an explicitly tired and idiotic take. We don't recruit a higher tier of players because Paulsen and co can't for whatever reason.

    Farrakhan is just one example of a kid going to a shit basketball school like ECU that is a better recruit than many of ours.

    "Get back to our recruits sleeper, you and your kind are ruining this board"- some old man screaming in Gold Room that runs away at sight of confrontation while muttering under his breath about 24 wins

    Better recruit in your opinion. Which, with all due respect, means jack since the kid has yet to play one second of college basketball.

    Nobody is perfect in recruiting but I’ll take our staff’s evaluations over yours, mine and every other poster’s.

    Jim you have said it yourself that our team is doing it's best and are at a peak of recruiting because of resources, school support, practice facility blah blah blah. We can't get the highest caliber of recruit because of so many constraints... blah blah blah. How can schools with equal or less to us as far as all these reasons you bring up sign kids that staffs way more successful than ours are offering but we continue to compete with Patriot League and lower conferences for our signees. I get you think Paulsen has this secret recruiting spell that he mists on kids he wants which protects them from receiving good offers, but I prefer to think they might just not be that high caliber since no good schools seem to offer our recruits. Obviously that is not 100% true but you get the point.

    I mean the guys on this board that your opinion seems to be exact with are a failed high school coach that can't get his team above .500 and a delirious group of folks that preached 22-24 wins after our shit OOC last year. Sometimes it is the company you keep @gmujim92

    I’m thinking I just need to make an official @sleeperpick vs @gmujim92 thread and let them just bicker in their own thread.

    I am guy who makes all the GK men's videos, thanks for the compliment. I watch a shit ton of HS basketball highlights on YouTube and etc also. I'm in the same boat as you man. I'm watching games from ground level and it's very obvious the skill difference bt some of our guys and the opponents. I hope DP steps it up for us and the incoming kids are up to par with the A10.

    make it a handicap match and put @p8triotfan4life on @gmujim92 's team. actually that would probably make it easier to me since Jim's opinions would definitely be diluted by that loony

    And against players taller than 6 feet. :cool:
    (Disclaimer: This comment is about the competition he faced and not his talent. He does look like he has a good inside-outside game, which will hopefully help us over the next four years.)

    Ray Salnave from Monmouth is grad transferring. Hes a 6'3 combo guard from Queens NY. Averaged 14.5 PPG and scored over 1100 points in 3 years.

    Will be interesting if schools flip to him instead of Kier. I'd love him at Mason but not holding my breath.
