Memphis Leads for Wall....but barely

Reports from various media outlets and blog sites have John Wall declaring a leader. He recently came back from Baylor and reportedly had a good visit, but the arena was dead, and with only 6,000 fans in attendance it's safe to say he wasn't wowed by the Baylor fan support. That being said, he decided to release to the press that Memphis is his early leader, but barely. You can be assured that Cousins has at least attempted to get in contact with John as he promised to do after his commitment to the Tigers. Rumors are flying that Wall will make his announcement sometime in April, whether it be at one of the all star games he's attending, or back home in Raleigh.

Be assured though that NC State is still right there with John Wall. Sidney Lowe is personally handling this recruitment, and will fight to the very end no matter who John declares as his leader. He most likely will not take his official visits to State, but rather just visit us unofficially, as he has throughout the course of the year. Don't worry Pack fans, this is far from over.

2 questions I'm asking myself.

-Do you really believe that 3 freshman from the same team will be able to go to the Pro in one year? It could happen... but has it ever before?(Wall, Cousins, Henry)

-Why does everyone assume Tyreke Evans is going pro? He'll test the waters obviously, but a tweener with no true position is never a lock for the first round, no matter what kind of hype is around him. This has to be on the mind of John Wall. Most think Evans will go pro, and he very well might, but there is NO guarantee that Evans is a first rounder, and if the NBA people advise him to return, where does that leave Wall?

    The NBA does not draft on numbers. They Draft on potential. Unless wall completely bombs out, no matter where he goes he will prob end up being on of the top 3 picks.

    I believe Wall will be a pro and a first round NBA pick no matter where he goes...I'm just saying, he's gonna really have to cut down on the scoring if he's got that many guys looking to put up seasons that will get NBA attention. It could all work out, or the "not enough rock to go around" situation could show up.

    Is there anybody Sidney is looking at like a plan B if all
    this fell thru like maybe it might. Let me say a thing to you all about this 1 and done thing with Wall. It is not about him,these kids today wheather you want to believe this or not do not connect with any of our history. They know its there and it is very nice but they will relate to someone great of their own age to have come to State. like me hearing about how great it was here in the 50's with coach Case. Open that door El Sid Im betting you know this very well. Why would he go after a 1& done after what took place with JJ Hickson. Does Everybody think that he feels the heat and he better do something in order to save his job,or is Sidney looking at the whole picture.He knows it is not always a sure bet that these kids go to the NBA after a year with Wall being the exception. Hell they could have a ordinary year which would still be a very awesome situation for a team like State.all of a sudden it turns into 2 years because the NBA says a low 1st round or possible a high 2. Now you have a kid with major purpose. See I have always been looking at this unique situation with (John Wall) as the Key that happens to unlock the door for us for many years after he is gone.Say what you may that's why we blog Im sure someone out there can either perfect on what I have been saying or someone sees it just the complete opposite.You see Im in my middle fiftys now and I don't always want to live in the past but i will always cherish it.Its something that can never be taken away from me.So Pack fans enjoy the moment. If that moment is one year only well then I'll have another fifty years of saying remember when...
