This might be the only recruit I've seen that I'd be willing to bring here just for his name.

Looks like a kid that is well rounded overall. He doesn't have elite athleticism (probably why he's not a 5 star), but he does many things well. He's got a nice jumper. He likes to drive and kick to the open man. He plays heady (good BB IQ). This would be a nice get for a 3-4 year player.

Looks like we are offering a lot of guards, when we should have a stable of them(assuming no transfers).  And if Nico Mannion re-classifies to 2019... I dunno.  One thing Im sure of is that we will be in desperate need of multiple power forwards and/or centers in the 2019 class.  This kid looks like a great player, though, for sure.

I am getting the feeling Miller is looking for something in these guards that we may not have yet.
I notice a lot guards that can score and create off the bounce, and most of them are on the taller end (6'2+) with a combination of long bigs that can run and finish above the rim, and some of them even able to put the ball on the ground as well.
If I didn't know any better, I would say that Miller is about to turn Arizona into his own interpretation of Golden State?

Boogie said itís not a commitment, but sure looks as close to a commitment as possible without committing. Did he just do an unofficial to USD or something?

This is getting more and more common. I wouldn't read anything into it. A lot of these kids like to mess with people's minds. They like to get people talking. He still has several visits left.

He just wants to see fans of social media pat him on the back with twitter responses.

The "uncommitted" in parentheses clarifies...but I doubt he does this for any other school (until he commits)!

It is all attention.
You post an edit of you with a school jersey to have that school's fan like/tweet etc, and to have a bunch of other fans try to negative recruit against that school and try to sell you on their school.
All for attention, and we (fans) get sucked in every time smh..

For the record, I believe SDSU would be a good fit for him with the way their program is highly favorable to guards that can do it all with the ball in their hands.
Just saying..

The question is what are our chances with boogie I would imagine not great considering we have nico now but there could be room if b williams  leaves but it seems like usc is leading an he has offers from now Carolina and Duke wondering what anybody else is thinking.

Not sure we need another guard.  I would prefer we use our remaining scholarship on another big man.

Post by: Jdmarti on September 29, 2018, 03:27:48 PM
I was thinking a big or wing like josh green

I would agree a "Big" would make more sense. Someone who can play the "4" (PF) with spot minutes at the "5" (C). Looking at who is visiting, considering order of need and the talent level I think the following would be on the top of the list:

1. Josh Green
2. Jeremiah Robinson-Earl
3. Khalid Thomas (If you can't get Jeremiah Robinson-Earl)
4. Terry Armstrong  (If you can't get Josh Green)
5. Boogie Ellis

This changes if Miller is looking to upgrade from Alex Barcello or Dylan Smith.

Post by: Bkatt on September 29, 2018, 04:24:38 PM
I forgot about Drew Timme. I would say at 2.5 from the list above. Below Jeremiah Robinson-Earl but above Khalid Thomas.

I don't think it is as serious as some of us are making it out to be.
I don't believe that Miller has a "plan" in place for 2019.
It seems like he wants a PG/Wing/Forward/Big, which would fill all the spots for how we believe this new offense will be run.
Mannion and Koloko fill two spots, and now he is trying to get the other two which I am going to guess and say Armstong & Timme are tops on that list.

My question is how many bodies are we trying to bring in 2019?
We have two seniors (Coleman/Luther), gave a walk-on our extra scholarship, and possibly two RS Juniors that would be graduate transfers (Smith/Jeter), I count MAYBE two possible NBA early departures (Akot/Williams).
I know we won't hit that number (7) that is how many I believe could be made available, but I think 4-5 is a realistic number.

I would really like boogie to come to Arizona but I think but we have nico an barcelo an b Williams I could b Williams having big year an being drafted which could open spot for boogie also .I think we could still use another wing or big man I think Josh green is number one but if Armstrong  an one of timmie or.zeke n  or another big man I'm not thinking of.

I think we bring in 4 plus the grad transfer.

Two from Coleman and Luther

Possibly someone leaving early including Randolph who has the ability to be huge.

Possibly a transfer out as well.

Boogie picks Duke. No surprise as his recruitment with Arizona was over once we got Nico Mannion.
