  1. I don't see Coach Gregory playing a style like Heath now or ever. Coach Gregory didn't recruit or is currently recruiting players that fit into HeathBall. The notion that USF can only win that way doesn't make sense. Coach Gregory isn't going to play like Shaka Smart either but they will look to score off rebounds and steals. If the talent level increases then so will the offensive capabilities and output.
  2. I to see that as well and it is confusing. Other articles say he is a 2017 recruit. I really want to know because I really want this guy in a Bulls uniform. To me you make a spot for this kind of player imo. Certainly if he's a 2018 prospect then that means no one on the team has to leave or not make it for him to have an open scholarship. However if he's a 2018 recruit then USF chances of landing him might decrease as other schools will get involved. Time will tell lol
  3. Great Pickup again. Looks like Coach Gregory prefer his PGs be more towards the physical type then then the smaller shifty type. Stephan Jiggets will handle the lead this coming season and give way to LaQuincy Rideau the season after next. We are out least for right now.
  4. I think this guy gains USF at least 6 pts a game based on nothing more then his game changing skills as a defender. That is HUGE and would give USF a great rebounding and defending frontcourt.
  5. ericdhester6 It's official! I'm an Akron Zip... we are about to take it to another level!!
  6. Actually there were quite a few local guys looking to transfer from their previous school. USF didn't get one, not really a serious look so far. We'll see what Laquincy Rideau does soon since we still might want another PG. Two local PGs committed to Penn St and Akron respectfully today. You are right in that maybe years on down the line USF can get a good local prospect or two to play for them. In the meantime the coaching staff have identified the areas in recruiting they are going to attack for the 2018 and 2019 classes as I said earlier.
  7. Mark Harlan said he wanted USF to recruit locally, Coach Bartow vowed to recruit locally if he got the job. Coach Gregory got the job and one of the first things he said was he would recruit locally. In fact Heath and Antigua said they wanted to recruit locally when they were here. I think it's very clear now that either local coaches aren't helping USF get their players and/or local HS, JC, or Prep kids just don't want to play for the USF Bulls. Unlike the previous head coaches, Coach Gregory and his experienced staff of coaches have identified that putting a bunch on eggs into the local basket has the potential to be disastrous. I love the way this staff is out there recruiting and I have noticed that they are really concentrating heavily in other southern states, and up in the Northern areas where you can really use the Florida weather as a recruiting advantage. Also basically leaving the West Coast alone which we should since there is nothing to sell to recruits out there imo.
  8. jamari wheeler‏ @jamariwheeler5 I am blessed to say I have committed to penn state university! Lol nothing new here. Florida HS players or former Florida HS players just don't want to come to USF.
  9. I'm glad you alluded to this guy's defensive ability. He has represented himself very well going against highly rated guys when given the chance. Very good looking prospect in the mold of Alexis Yatna who is a specialist when it comes to rebounding. This guy is that as a defensive presence and has helped propel his teams to championship levels. To not only get 1 of the best rebounders in HS but maybe 1 of the best defensive players in the same class would be something else.
  10. TimCoffaro‏ @TimCoffaro Joey Coffaro ChicagoLockDown‏ @ChicagoLockDown 2017 PG Joey Coffaro Hersey ALL-AREA 18.6 ppg 3.5 rebs 3.5 ast 2.5 steals USF great campus great hoop facility great visit. Thanks Coach Gregory! @Joey_Coffaro Considered the best shooter in the state of Illinois. Has an offer from Eckerd College but is thinking about coming to USF as a preferred walkon
  11. Well we still have 1 scholarship left and this is a new name popping up as a candidate to take it.‏ @HoopDreamsMag 2017 Cambridge Rindge & Latin (MA) PF/C Dimon Carrigan received an offer from South Florida and DePaul today. Secrets out! @carrigandimon
  12. Im wondering if there are grade concerns with him. He went from a high priority for us to no buzz all. Havent even seen him mention his own recruiting for a long time. Talented kid and it will be a shame if grades holds him back
  13. I don't think coach Gregory brought in any academic risk students. I think were a couple of JC guys that might have been in question but we backed off. I expect to are all these recruits on the floor playing next season.
