    I am not saying they were at the same level as Anthony Harris or Jeremy Roach but we were able to get some good local talent. Folarin Campbell, Will Thomas, Cam Long, Jonathan Arledge, Lamar Butler, Isaiah Tate, etc all were recruited by power 5 conference teams but chose Mason over them. I can't speak for all of them but I can tell you with 100% certainty that Folarin and Will chose Mason because it was close to home and they were going to get immediate playing time. All I am saying is we should not shy away from going after these kids just because they are "NBA caliber players"

    The great Aristotle once said, "If internet explorer is brave enough to ask to be your default browser, then you are brave enough to ask that girl out."

    The same proverb should be applied to recruiting. Just because we're not at the P5 level doesn't mean we can't get a P5 caliber player. We gotta put ourselves out there and try. It's like online dating... swipe right for every hot bitch ya can in hopes that one might swipe right back at ya. The more you go after, the better the odds.

    With that said, I've seen our staff go for P5 level players... I just want to see more of it.

    If you guys act like it is impossible to land an Ant Harris we'll never land an Ant Harris.

    Of course there isn't a great chance because duh. But, you never know with a local guy with various X-factors at play. Shit maybe he's banging a girl at Mason. Maybe he's got a local doctor he likes, coming off his injury. Maybe he likes our staff and likes Josh a ton. Maybe his first basketball memory was Mason ruling ass when he was 5-6. Maybe he can't live without the French dip at Fat Tuesday's.

    Quit being shitbags. Mason is a world class destination near three major airports and also there is a new Taco Bambo in University Mall.

    When you make comments like this, it shows how jaded you are. How is anyone supposed to take your criticisms seriously (even when well founded) if you have to constantly throw in jabs and personal barbs to make yourself feel better?

    But his positioning is better. And he looks stronger than Reuter.

    Josh! Ohhhhh...DUROohhhhhh!!

    Double-double. A 2 x 2 = jersey #13 = 13 points! + 11 rebounds! vs. GW

    Coming off a solid defensive effort to help shut down Santos-Silva and put VCU in a tailspin, Josh is building himself. Also at tonight's GW game, Josh had two, count 'em – two – blocked shots. And strokin' the three-ball with a couple of oooo-so-close misses – 1 for 3 – could have easily been 3 for 3.

    Had Mason won the GW game then maybe we'd be a bit more excited. Screw you all (well, some of you)... I am stoked! Yes, watching Josh has me stoked that we have a fairly serviceable big on man on the roster. Get this guy into the gym over the off-season to trim off that baby fat and Dave & Co. may have something here.

    Way to go Josh! ............. Ohhhhh...DUROohhhhhh!!

    Really excited to see what Josh can develop towards. Hes a big body in the post, smooth around the basket and has a nice jump shot. I'm hopeful to see some pick and pop from him as well.

    Once he loses the babyfat and is a little meaner around the basket, I can see a really nice ceiling for him. Adding athleticism around him will only help too.

    He's probably never going to be an above-average athlete, but he can improve, and with his touch and size, that could be enough.

    He also looks like a guy who could shoot 75% from the FT stripe, which is nice to have in a big.

    Agreed. We don't need him to be super athletic. Theres plenty of guys on the team (Henry, AJ, Frazier, Miller) who can help out. I'd just love for him to continue to add to his range. And yes, shooting well from the FT stripe would absolutely be a nice thing. I think he can do that too.
