    The way this kid moves reminds me of Poeltl.

    Rylan Jones officially commits to Utah.
    “It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.”

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    He plays the game the right way. Love, love, love how he plays as a point guard.

    His only challenge will be defense. Who does he defend and how does he defend? Not very big.

    A "quiet" commitment, with little fanfare.....

    Cassius Stanley seems amazing. Great hops and overall athleticism. This is a video from when he was in 9th grade.

    Is he looking at Utah? If he's at Harvard-Westlake USC or UCLA will be all over him.

    He has offers from 6 P12 schools. Utah not among them so far.

    This seems notable.

    EDIT: Sorry, I’ve got all sorts of wires crossed on this. Move along!

    Matt Van Komen--Pleasant Grove 7'4" was at the UCLA game last night.

    At halftime I walked up the stairs right behind him. It is hard to appreciate 7'4" until you stand close to him---his head barely cleared the top of the exit at the Hunty at the top of the stairs.
    Collette is listed at 6'10" --this kid is half a foot taller.
    He was sitting right behind Rylan Jones.
    They both were staying after the game after most people had left & were talking to each other---this would be Rylan's best assist--landing Van Komen.

    You can't teach tall---some people say they want an athletic 6'10" over 7'4"--not so sure after seeing VK in person.

    I have read that he is leaning Gonzaga (maybe strongly), but there is still a long way to go.

    Hopefully someone pointed out that while we were playing a meaningful late-season game against UCLA last night, Gonzaga was playing a completely meaningless game against San Fransisco, Pepperdine or Santa Clara.

    Sounds like he was there again yesterday. Signing him would put us at +2 for 2019. Long time before then but I'm not sure which two you boot. But, at the end of the day, you do what you gotta do!

    Two is easy - Jokl and Caldwell.

    Jokl probably goes this year to solve our +1 problem. Still at plus 2 in 2019. Wouldn't surprise me to see an end of the bench wing transfer and get replaced by a grad transfer center.

    Oh, I see. You did say 2019. That's too far off for me to speculate.

    Rylan is lighting it up on an AAU team with Isaac Johnson, Van Komen & Larry K's 2 sons. Rylan is leading scorer & plays the most minutes. Johnson & Van Komen have about equal minutes & Stats.

    Forgive me if this has been asked and answered already, but what is the deal with Larry's sons? Are they D1 prospects? Are they the Jake Connors of the next generation? Would they want to play for their dad or go form their own identity?
