      "
      The trio of freshmen will all have a chance to make an immediate impact. Sherfield and Etienne are two of the highest-rated recruits Marshall has signed and scouts view both as guards that can be instant offense for the Shockers, while Fernandes, although undersized, possesses a grit that Marshall loves. It’s not preposterous to imagine two freshman eventually starting, just like it’s not crazy to think one might end up redshirting.

      The more I go back review the tape on this kid it sticks out that he has a fluid gait and long arms, allowing for good defensive posture. Quick. Good J. We're gonna' like this kid.

      He's the spitting image of the one-time Valley great who went on to a successful career in the League: Mo Cheeks.

        Great minds think alike. Cheeks was very underrated. This kid got good reviews on the East coast.

        M8ke (the) American Great Again has a certain ring to it, eh? It'll make a nice hash tag. In solidarity.

        I have that card. Several of them probably.

      I really think both Fernandez and Gordon are both underrated. But as I have said before , I don't think Fernandez cares. He just plays. It's going to be interesting competition this summer. Hope I can steal a couple of days to watch pick up games this summer.

        Never know. Sometimes the guy who gets lost in the shuffle becomes the guy we can't live without.

        Glue guys needed.

      For many weeks I was about the only guy defending AM against so many attackers and hoping he would
      get some meaningful PT and once he finally got it he proved what I always thought - he is a good center.
      NF will get his chances, no doubt, but once again I will mention Tate Busse. If he gets the chance he could
      very well surprise. We need shooters and he may be the best one on the team. Go ahead and laugh just
      as most laughed when I was pushing for AM to play. Who ever it is, Noah, Tate, DG, I think there are going
      to be one or two players surprise on the upside just like AM did.

        I've heard some good things about Tate also; someone said don't sleep on him... he could be a PLAYER! I also have a funny feeling in my ole bones, but it might be arthritis.

        It's tough as hell to catch a summer pickup game anymore. I think they are randomly changing the schedule just to confuse me. I think they fear my (actual) height report. I'm definitely approaching this summer with a Gregg Marshall chip on my shoulder. CB wants to see plenty of tall dark men with long arms. No midgets/D2 bodies please!

        If funny... thinking back on my report from last summer with the year just finished: Mark was not impressive forcing drives with little success; Jamie, Erik, Teddy and Dexter were VERY impressive; Rod looked like a bodybuilder; Ricky looked like a walkon; Udeze appeared slothful; Chance showed nice offensive skills. I never saw Asbjorn, Poor Bear, SHJ, or Burton play.

        A little hit and miss but quite a few hits.

          This kid will have multiple games just going off, as a freshman. It's gonna be fun to watch!

            Nike EYBL Stats: https://www.d1circuit.com/roster_pla...bseason=483962
            12.9 PPG
            4.8 APG to 1.8 TOPG (10th in assists)
            3.5 RPG
            1.6 SPG
            0.4 BPG
            36% FG%
            75% FT%
            35% 3P%
            [/QUOTE]

            This kid is 2,000 point scorer in the preps. That's impressive.

            But the reason I re-posted his EYBL stats is because I read on msn today about the Tar Heels landing a 5* center from the Virgina prep ranks (Armando Bocat) who averaged less points (10.9) than Noah did (12.9), although the big did grab 8 rbs. a game. But, hey, our guy averaged 4.8 dimes.

            Seems like our guy was a littlle under recruited? Shocks are gonna have some good guards in 2 years...

              It may not take two years, SBT. The future looks bright, and it isn't just a light at the end of the tunnel I'm seeing.

            Speculation or predictions (whatever you want to call it) with limited information is fine. After all, all we have to base our opinions on is highlight videos and statistics so far and we will be able to tell much more when we see our players against Division 1 competition. Some of the poor quality suggestions or predictions from last year (before November) include:

            -Jemarious Burton should redshirt this year because he won't play very much. WRONG
            -Also, many thought (me included) that Ricky Torres would be the second coming and solve our point guard problems for the immediate future. WRONG
            -many thought that we'd win 25 games this year in the regular season. WRONG
            -many thought that we'd be in the Top 3 conference teams this year. WRONG.

            I personally hope we are good enough next year to get back into competition for the American Championship and back to competition for a Top 25 Ranking. I would think that JB and ES will begin the year as the heir apparent to the guard positions. They both have some really fine strengths to build upon and experience that should help them as well as some weaknesses that need to be rectified. But our other 3 guards that we just signed also are very talented and have played top high school/prep school competition and have that to build on. There are 40 minutes of guard minutes to divide up between at least 5 guards and while I would think that all 5 would get minutes at the beginning of the year, most likely 4 will get the large majority of the minutes as the year moves along. The team will win from this competition, but one of the talented players probably won't in the long run.

              We will have at least 2 if not 3 guards on the floor at all times. A not so long time ago we had FVV - Rob Barker - Tekele on the floor at the same time - all guards.

              Three positions at 40 minutes each would be 120 minutes between 6 (if I'm counting correctly DD, JB, ES, NF, TE, GS) players.

              I'm not sure what all this "WRONG" BS is about - sometimes it's just fans being fans.....it's ok.

              We definitely have a "only the strong survive" mentality. It's not for everyone - but everyone gets better because of the competition.

              When you expand from the 1/2 (five candidates for PT) to the 1/2/3, Dennis becomes the sixth candidate, but Teddy, Trey, and DeAntoni get added. It the. Goes five players for 80 minutes to nine players for 120 (more accurately 160 since the 4 spot is also in play). There’s still an odd man out...maybe two if there is a large talent gap.

              Who is Rob Barker ?

            I've made no speculations for next year either... Now, on the other hand, the "potential" TWO years out is rather intriguing.
