  • How Ricky Torres went from high school dropout to Division I hoopster

    Comment


    • I was worried at first when I heard that he had dropped out of HS. Now after reading that .. it all makes sense. It's amazing how much some contextual information can change a viewpoint.

      • Great find RoyalShock I have been looking forward to hearing Ricky's story, Fred had a great back story but Ricky's is every bit, if not more, compelling. Won't be hard to root like hell for this young man.

        • Against those odds, Torres persevered, transforming from a Pinellas Park High School dropout to one of the best junior college players in the country.
          His courtship by several major Division I-A programs ended with his commitment to Wichita State.

          "My life story is crazy," said Torres, an All-American at Missouri State-West Plains. "I felt like I've been working so long, just grinding every day. Now the payoff has finally come.

            LOL

            If only there was a "To Catch a Predator" type show for college basketball where Chris Hansen posed as an Adidas rep luring college coaches in. I could see it now. Self pulling up saying "Hey, you got the brand new Audi and cash for....ahh sh*t, Chris Hansen."

            • I liked the sentence "After announcing his plans to become a Shocker, Torres did not take too much time to celebrate. He was back in the gym for two workouts that day."



              The cleverest of all, in my opinion, is the man who calls himself a fool at least once a month.

              • I'm liking this kid more and more. You just know he's gonna bring the toughness. Top of my nickname list is "Ricky Bobby" If you ain't first, you're last...

                  • I've seen cuts from this on Twitter, but not the whole thing. A bunch of Ricky highlights from this long open gym vid. He gets scored on exactly once.

                    • I'm glad we got Ricky! Like him even better than Lomax. Bigger. Smooth operator. A little older. Probable starter from jump street. Go Shocks!

                        I haven't been this excited for an incoming Shocker since... Erik Stevenson. Good God we are loaded!

                        Ricky looks like what FVV and a slightly maimed Tekele would produce if they had a child.

                        The cupboard is totally full.

                        It's a great ****ing day to be a Shocker!
