Don't want to start the whole "size and stars" thing again because there are absolutely no guarantees until the court is taken but I have heard very good things about McGriff from two different people whose opinions I greatly respect. Both touted his mental toughness, competitiveness, and commitment to keeping the ball in front of him.


Also heard staff fully confident he can be solid player for reasons you cited. They know they can’t throw him to wolves year one, so hopefully they get him some reasonable help.


Completely agree on the help.

FWIW, just saw an April tweet from him that says he's staying in the 2020 Class.

Hey, I guess he can always change his mind about reclassifying. Either way, looks like a very worthwhile kid to stay on top of and recruit hard. Need his level of talent here. In addition, it looks like we have a very solid connection at Huntington prep considering all their players we are pursuing. Hopefully that pays off.

McGriff may be the difference in this case.

Why he was one of my best: I don't know that I saw many frontcourt players who were more aggressive than Brakefield. He hunted jump shots and attacked off the dribble but never ventured into the realm of straight up shot jacking. He was engaged, productive and fun to watch. A little more work on the glass and it would have been a spotless few days for him.

Recruitment: Ole Miss is trying their best to get him to come back home for school. Baylor, Oregon, Pitt, St. John's, Louisville, Mississippi State and many more are involved and his recruitment still seems pretty open.

This kid reminds me of Harkless on the court
