      Dammit, I thought we had a slim chance...

      • Seems like Taylor jumped the gun with his early article. I think I prefer Nefti anyways but I admittedly know nothing about either of these guys outside of watching their highlights.

          I said jumped the gun because it seems like in the past the Eagle generally wouldn’t write a story about a recruit unless we were pretty close to signing them. Based on what I’ve read in this thread it doesn’t seem like there was much interest on his end or that we were ever close to signing him or even getting a visit. But again, this is based on nothing but second hand info from the Eagle or Shockernet. That’s where I was coming from. Definitely didn’t want to give the impression I’m negative towards Taylor. He’s doing a great job.

          In a reply to a tweet I sent to Taylor, he admitted our chances of landing Akinjo were very slim. But I think the Marshall home visit was newsworthy and one has to think that a highly rated recruit pays attention to what the local press is saying, or not saying, about them. I have to admit I'm still a bit butt hurt that A-Lo departed the pattern but that's my problem.

          Loved the article by Taylor and knowing we put ourselves in a position to get an in home with this player. Played from behind Georgetown since they were recruiting him much longer than us (we had two points iwth Shamet and Alo). Got in the picture and gave ourselves a shot!
