BTW - one other comment on David Sloan...
the PJS writer casts doubt on this offer and says it doesn't make any sense so it didn't really happen.
I guess nobody really knows - everything in this realm is always hearsay but the writer does not offer anything to explain why he doubts except that we don't appear to have a need for PG.
However the confirmation of the offer comes from at least 3 different sources.
One is an east coast recruiting guru who I have followed and he's been right all along - on Koch Bar, Hodgson (even before anyone else in the world knew Hodgson had moved to Florida), on Damir Hadzic, etc.
Other recruiting sites also make mention of the offer.
But what I think are the most solid confirmations that some sort of offer did occur - are the confirmations, re-tweets and mentions of the offer on The Conrad Academy twitter account, also on the Conrad Basketball twitter account, as well as on SHAUN WISEMAN's twitter account (and wouldn't you think he'd know more than most of us?) and even on David Sloan's.
If this offer never occurred, then someone ought to tell all those guys who apparently believe that it did.

Hello, this is Nathan LeClair, CEO of Verbal Commits. Sloan's coach at Conrad informed me of the offer. He did not say when the offer was extended.

EDIT: Was told by a source that Bradley does not have an offer for Sloan on the table at this time. It has been removed from the site. However, the coaching staff does "like him a lot."

I'm assuming Verbal Commits is not up to date or were those offers pulled?
The offers are mentioned on his profile. If you click "Show Other Offers", you'll see the Butler and Louisville offers that were previously offered.

To sum it up. The staff is following a high level recruit but has not offered him a scholarship at this time. Was there an offer made that was not supposed to be public??? With the offers the kid has, would he actually consider Bradley?

I'm guessing that something was discussed..Sloan's coach, who clearly has some prior relationship with & knows our coaching staff having coached at least three kids that we have recruited and offered...
and having coached other kids who BU assistant coach Drew Adams knows...
...surely has some grasp on the situation -
Odd that they as well as others have reference to the offer on their twitter-feed and have made no effort to refute or remove, but time will tell.............

Bradley is interested in Sloan, but have not offered yet. There was a misunderstanding. However, they are recruiting him.

Could it be that Bradley's real intent was not to let our current PG know that we are recruiting over him?

I can't believe any D1 coach would ever let that kind of thing stop him from trying to recruit better players or concern him with it going public. And if anything, it should motivate any player already here.

One thing about another point guard is that they would not all be in the same class. However, as t mentioned players change schools for many reasons and we do have players that are far from home.

Maybe just maybe we are not recruiting over our PG'S maybe we will be replacing one. Hope that's not the case but it could be.

Yet another nice column about BU recruit David Sloan
http://zsmart.blogspot.com/2017/03/2...alent.html?m=1

His season is over now and his current team, 22-ft Academy, just finished in the Elite Eight of the 2017 "Prep School World Championship" that was won by Hillcrest Prep
In their next to final game, David Sloan hit the game-winner...

Other BU recruits that have their season finished include Ryan Stipanovich (signed), Gaven Pinkley, and Vance Johnson
...but Elijah Childs (signed) is still playing, as are Aaron Henry, Messiah Jones, and Michael Moreno


Note- several BU recruits & former recruits will be playing tonight for various schools - Lanphier, Simeon (Kezo Brown, Melo Burrell, Messiah Jones), Whitney Young (Xavier Castaneda), Morgan Park, etc... as IHSA Class 3A & 4A compete tonight in Sectionals
