Default BU recruit- 2013 Ran Tut

Ran Tut is an under-the-radar 6'8" post player from Impact Academy of Sarasota, Florida that Bradley is recruiting. He is originally from the Sudan, but came to the US from Australia.

He is described as: "a good athlete with length, while standing 6-foot-8. He loves to play on the wing on offense and attack slower big guys off the dribble, and he shows the ability to change directions on the bounce. However, Tut's real strength is on the block, where he posts physically despite a lack of strength. On defense, the senior looks like he can be an impact player at the college level."

He is #86 on this list-

note Thomas Hamilton is at #16.

Ran Tut is playing in a tournament in Florida hosted by IMG - here are a couple notes...

" Ran Tut: ...Tut had college coaches buzzing the most with his strong
play. The 2013 post from Sarasota (Fla.) Impact Academy was limited in
his minutes because of foul trouble, but he had a huge presence to his
game when he was on the court. Tut is a good athlete with length, while
standing 6-foot-8. He loves to play on the wing on offense and attack
slower big guys off the dribble, and he shows the ability to change
directions on the bounce. However, Tut's real strength is on the block,
where he posts physically despite a lack of strength. On defense, the
senior looks like he can be an impact player at the college level, which is
why schools such as Bradley, Florida International, Duquesne and
Southern Illinois watched him play."



On IMG's Thomas Hamilton...

"...2013 center Thomas Hamilton ...IMG cruised to a 29-point win in the final game of the day, defeating Charlotte (N.C.) MACK Prep.

.. 6-foot-9 bruiser Hamilton has made great strides in his conditioning
since leaving his native Chicago to spend his final season of high school
ball at the elite training facility in Western Florida. Hamilton has lost a
significant amount of weight this season, making it easier for him to play
the extended minutes that college coaches will call on him to play. What
Hamilton has always been successful in has been his offensive skill set on
the low- and mid-post area, particularly his abilities as a distributor to
cutters near the rim. Hamilton has strength and soft touch, and he can
score around the rim through contact at an efficient rate. What we like
about Hamilton is his mindset to keep it simple on the offensive end, just
making one simple move to score with a hook shot when he has a size
advantage. The three-star center will have to continue to make strides in
his floor-running ability, but Hamilton has made progress since he left the
Windy City.

The three-star center recently has received offers from Auburn, DePaul,
Oklahoma State and South Florida. He also had several other Midwestern
mid- and high-major programs offer him, and some are still suiting him."

Whats the latest on this kid? I was just drooling over his vids again, cant find anything on my own. If you ask me, this is exactly the kind of player we need with the last spot.

Have not heard his name recently. I do not think he is on our radar any more.

Ran Tut ended up spending two years at Monroe College in New York (same place Matt Sally came from)

but after that he went to South Carolina...so he's just now finishing his junior year...

unfortunately they have so much talent and have recruited way over him and he barely ever plays...
South Carolina is about to advance to the Elite Eight and they have a huge number of solid underclassmen so he probably won't play much next year either..
He's probably enjoying the run in the NCAA but he aimed way too high
