Still not following me? Maybe I follow your every word rather more carefully than do you. Anyhow, I'm not trying to be obscure. Review on Wears transfer thread your posts #711 [bold enough, I thought at the time, 5/19] and then esp your post #719 [from 5/20]. Post #719 seemed clear enough, and way bold, unless it was too clever for my brain; but I was surprised that almost no one responded to it, even when a few days later [House money thread] I tried to remind folks of how way out there you were.
As one who's liable to say almost anything anytime, I do not begrudge you the same privilege. Unless you correct me, I will now assume you were playing the provocateur back in May. I enjoyed it.

Andre Drummond talks recruiting
This kid is going to be a monster, he'll be a future #1 pick, hopefully we can land him.In an interview with Rivals.com's Jerry Meyer following that game, Drummond revealed an early top five of North Carolina, Duke, Georgetown, Louisville, and UConn that are recruiting him the hardest.
While in town for the TOC, Drummond was able to get a better feel for the Duke and North Carolina campuses and he had good things to say about both.
"I toured around Duke and North Carolina. I like the campuses and I'd love to come down for an unofficial visit to see how the academic portion looks like," he said. "The campuses are beautiful. Everything is clean and stuff like that, and the gyms are nice."
Still, i contend that UNC will finish in the middle (anything below the top 2 is middle) of the ACC during all of those inevitable Duke championship years. Bold predictions? Youbetcha!!! YEHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAA!!!!!
Anyone with access needs to read the material currently list on Dukes page on rivals. Good stuff! Won't say anything about it except I enjoyed taking the time to catch up on some recruiting.
This article talks about Dai-Jon Parker (2-sport athlete 2011) and Evan Nolte from 2012.
I put it here because Nolte recently came through Durham...
Here's an older profile on Nolte. We share a common favorite college team...
"He stated that he likes to wait until the last possible time so that his staff and he can do a good evaluation of the player before making an offer. He pointed out that UNC was the last school to offer last yearís No. 1 prospect, Harrison Barnes".
Really Roy!? Cause Im pretty sure you have a history of offering kids pretty early, i.e. Wear Twins, P.J. Hairston, James McAdoo, etc... He's such a schmoozer, makes me vomit a lil in the back of my throat, ick!
J.P Tokoto offered by UNC: http://northcarolina.scout.com/a.z?s...%2f977422.html
There are also rumblings out there they may offer L.J Rose, Shabuzz Muhammad and Andre Drummond by the end of the day.
According to Rivals.com, we have offered the top ranked player in the 2012 Andre Drummond
Rivals.com and Scout.com are the most prevalent premium sites. For example, the Rivals site for Penn State football (which I have occasionally joined and dropped off) has 3 guys who appear to have some inside access to Penn State football recruits and assistant coaches. This information is then available to subscribers.
As for other posters with supposed inside information...yeah, that happens sometimes, but mostly the perceived value of a premium site is in the news provided by the site owner or a scout/talent evaluator who works for the local site or part of the national network (of rivals.com, for example).
I've always wondered why someone who is an "insider" would pay $100 dollars to share information that he has with other people. I understand why someone would pay the money to gain excess to someone with insider info but why would the insider pay to share it?
Edit- Mainly talking about members to premium forums not the writers for scout/rivals/etc
