Agau's Salty

I guess I missed Sean Callahan's tweet basically asking the same thing.  Was someone going to be shown the door if Agau did pick us?

 

Benny Parker was asked to move on at one point in time, it's possible that Miles had someone in mind if Akoy was all 'N.'

I'm not a fan of some of the stuff agau has said on twitter, but would definitely respect him if he came here to try and help us win.

My point was that the belief that McVeigh was the last spot and therefore NU didn't have room for Agau seems to contradict that we were still actively recruiting Agau even after McVeigh committed.

 

We have a running diary of those 3-4 days here

 

Him and Jack were at the Indiana game

Agau was scheduled to visit officially but we were stuck in Iowa City.

McVeigh commits during that time.

We technically had a scholarship for that season to sign Agau but were full for next season. It's probable, especially in hindsight, that someone was going to transfer. However we have never oversigned in the Miles era.

 

I'm unsure whether or not the scholarship offer for Agau was formally pulled when McVeigh signed.  But when I ask myself if McVeigh has signed at LSU whether or not Aqau comes here or Georgetown the answers, especially in hindsight, is Georgetown.

well i guess agau might end up playing in PBA one way or another.

Illinois might struggle to finish above 13th in the conference, with their graduation losses and recruiting class falling apart.

What is falling apart for Illinois?  They show three commits from guards for 2017, each of whom is a Rivals four star.  And one of those three is Mark Smith.

I wouldn't say it's falling apart either though they did have 5 star center Jeremiah Tilmon decommit. He was a Groce commit but this might have happened anyway as he 's from East St. Louis and Mizzou is potentially going to draw him in. The Illini are sitting at 9 scholarships right now.

Wasn't his mentor from high school a resident near the SMU campus?

I didn't realize that DeMonte Williams had re-committed after he had gotten a release.  So - my mistake there.  But losing Tillmon hurts for them, they are really thin up front.  They have some decent players back but not much depth.

Agau isn't coming here Part 3 starting to come to a head

 

This time I would believe him if he said he wasn't being recruited.

Please put me in the group who is thankful that this young man will not be coming to Nebraska.  Sorry, I simply do not believe his talent overrides the headaches (that I believe) accompanies him.

He'll start right away given SMU's incredible lack of post players. Good move for Akoy. Just wasn't meant to be back home
