    2016 Basketball Recruiting Thread

    I searched and couldn't find a 2016 recruiting thread yet.

    Apparently Duke has Just offered SF Jayson Tatum who is #4 in ESPN rankings. I believe he is the second offer for Duke from the 2016 class with the first being Harry Giles who is listed as a 6-9 PF and #3 in the class.

    He's out of Chaminade Prep in St. Louis, which, if memory serves, is where Bradley Beal went to high school.

    I for one will not be surprised if Tyus Battle, a 6'5" wing out of New Jersey, is the next 2016 kid to be offered.

    This is a very StL thing. I mean, this dynamic exists elsewhere, but it's intense here. Really intense. The private schools are very private.

    I'd say more, but I don't want to go PPB.

    At this point in time, wasn't JP Tokoto ranked as the #1 player in the country?

    Guess it takes a few years for players to develop...

    Trying to Understand Something

    I went to Duke in the 60s, long time ago I know. Jack Marin was a very good player and later had a successful NBA career. In 1960, his sophmore year in high school he rode the pine. His team won the State Championship and he did not play.

    So how do we really know how good these guys who are only high school sophs really are?

    Thanks

    There are always going to be guys who develop late, and there are always going to be guys who fizzle after early success. No question there. But there are many, many recruits who look good their sophomore years and remain elite. Proof of imperfection is not proof of worthlessness.

    No interest in De' Ron Davis from suburban Denver? This kid is really good. 6' 10", athletic and smart.

    It look like Arizona, Kansas, Colorado, Wake and others are after him.

    If he's after Zona, Kansas, Colorado, or WF, does that really make him smart?

    As a huge Colorado Buff fan, I could disagree with you. Colorado is relevant again and their coach, Tad Boyle, is a star.

    Other than that, I don't know. I've seen him play and I think he's a very smart player. His school plays Denver East tomorrow night in the semifinals. Denver East has a couple of D1 recruits but not a big man. Notwithstanding the relatively low level of H.S. play in Colorado, I think he's really good and, from a talent perspective, a potential Duke recruit. I don't know about his academics.

    I'm not sure whether he's interested in Arizona, Kansas and Colorado, or whether they are interested in him. Bzdelik, as you know, has Colorado connections which explains the Wake interest.

    I would be very conflicted if he had to choose between Duke and Colorado.

    There are certain ... er ... advantages to going to being in Boulder, Colorado. Just ask Bill Walton. Or Eric Holder.

    I saw Airowe posted that Duke had offered Thon Maker last night but I just went back to his Twitter and it's gone now.

    So i searched and Zags is now reporting both Duke and Kansas have offered him.

    Adam Zagoria ‏@AdamZagoria 26m
    ICYMI: Kansas & Duke have both offered 2016 7-footer Thon Maker. UK, Louisville also in mix http://t.co/M2wXCIz7fI

    Any insight Airowe?

    Junior Smith

    I'm seeing the name Junior Smith (I believe his correct name is Dennis Smith, Jr.) mentioned as a PG target in the class of 2016 for Duke.

    He's from Fayetteville, NC, and apparently is a strong driver/creator and passer.

    To my knowledge, no offer from Duke so far; here's his Scout.com profile
