    It's not the ACC, where Ryan won't get away with the carry, it's NC State. But, if he works on keeping that hand on the top half of the ball, he is going to break ankles in college. I like watching his highlights and feeling sorry for the guy(s) trying to stay in front of him! Very smooth.
    And, the dimes are sick too. Ryan has great court vision! Lo, T. Smith, Deshawn and Howell (among others) had better start cultivating a third eye, preferably in the back of their heads. They may not see where the rock is coming from, but it's coming! I can't wait. Go State!

    BTW - My word verification for this post, 'unpoo.' I didn't know you could do that. That's going in the dictionary.

    Will Barton in no rush, according to KU site
    Shooting guard Will Barton recently spoke with ESPN's Kansas affiliate website and rattled off a number of high major programs he is interested in.

    Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Texas, Miami, Georgetown, Arizona, Xavier, Marquette, Providence and Pittsburgh were just some of the schools's No. 12 ranked player listed.

    Speaking about the Jayhawks, Barton had his to say:

    "Coach Self is a great coach. His teams get up and down in transition. I like him (Self) a lot. I have talked to him a lot and always have good conversations. Coach Dooley has been out to see me too at an open gym. They are doing a good job recruiting me.

    "Kansas is a great school, a great program, good academics, and great school," Barton added. "I have watched KU a lot and like how they get up and down, good defensive pressure, which I am familiar with since my high school plays a similar style."

    Barton does not expect to narrow his list until the end of the summer. A decision will then come after consulting with his family and coach.

    WPH, It is easy to watch these videos and be excited about the direction of the program. While you all are at these tournaments, did you see other recruits and note that other teams are doing well. In other words, were there recruits you thought were great who consistantly mentioned one team, or had signed with one team (maybe Ohio State?)?

    Unrelated, but Courtney Fells is working out for the Bobcats today. Be sweet to have the chance to continue seeing him frequently.

    The way that Ryan can thread passes around his defender to his teammates is absolutely incredible. It seems like he does it in pretty much every video that you guys have posted of him so far. That bodes very well for our team.

    No, not a Kansas fan - an NC State fan. I copied and pasted that update from ESPN, just thought people would want to see that being that we're recruiting him. There was chatter on these boards the other day that he may have been just gassing us up because WE were interviewing him. I thought this relevant.

    "And, the dimes are sick too. Ryan has great court vision! Lo, T. Smith, Deshawn and Howell (among others) had better start cultivating a third eye, preferably in the back of their heads."

    I definitely agree with that ppack3. I remember last season when Javi made a few really great passes that only ended up making him "look" bad, to most casual observers anyway, because his teammates weren't playing aggressively, and they weren't accustomed to such heady player.

    If we're going get where we want to be, stuff like that has to change, and change quickly.

    Not a pure shooter in the sense where all the mechanics look silky but very useful given his style of game.

    It's a solid shot with a quick release and it matches everything about Ryan's game- which is use your skills and quickness to gain an advantage and strike right there and then quickly.

    Ryan's creates split second openings and opportunities and very rarely backs off- whether its that seam bounce pass to an open teamates or getting his shots off in the lane- it's always done with atleast 1-2 defenders back pedaling.

    Now we are seeing him getting those moves into spaces he is comfortable with taking a jumper. I just love the way Ryan knows what his game is. He will only work harder, grow bigger and improve on his game to heights we're only getting a glimpse of

    This is off the subject but someone on here once mentioned how we dodged a bullet with Calipari. I would like to repeat that statement today. IMO I think most, not all, coaches that are trying to come up in the coacing world probably do cheat a little. I think some coaches get too comfortable cheating and once they find strategies to cheat and people willing to help they are encouraged to do it even more. Whether you like him or not, Calipari has proven he can coach and now he is at a school that has a rich tradition. If he gets outta this one, all he has to do is put things on cruise control. He doesn't have to recruit athletes that are not academic eligible. Can he is the real question? I'd like to take this time to thank Lowe and company for all their hard work. They seem to be doing thins the right way and if our biggest recruiting problem is facebook then I can live with that. I feel change brewing around here. Go Pack!!

    It seems that this camp really wasn't the best place to see how recruits will perform in a structured college environment, but I still like what I saw with Harrow. He can take and make the outside shot, which he's shown in a few of his vidoes, particularly the HS games. And he continues to show his spontaneous athleticsm, his ability to take it to the rim, and the iq to make a great assist. He's a little slight, but seems to be a true distributing and scoring point guard, and exactly what the Wolfpack needs. I'm looking forward to following his senior year at Walton and then suiting up for the Pack!

    Will Barton (and his brother) just committed to Memphis

    ^Barton bros commitment makes absolutely no sense. With whats going on, why how who what when why, would a kid commit to that school without knowing what possible sanctions (strong possible the way the media is talking) they might be given. I looked on espn and the last post they had about Barton was from Kansas' website stating his in no rush to make a commit. I smell remnants of Calipari. Don't get me wrong, good luck to the kid but you have to admit that it just doesn't add up

    ^ It really doesn't. I mean we talked to the kid quite a bit and he kept saying he was in no rush and he wanted to take visits.

    I really wish I could be a fly on the wall on a recruiting visit to Memphis.

    As Memphis potentially goes south, Calamari goes west... on vacation to China during an NCAA court hearing Memphis. Interesting...

    Maybe a fan from Memphis was victorious in a one on one competition with Baton at Pangos.

    "Barton bros commitment makes absolutely no sense."

    I hate to disagree, but this is a new day my friend. These kids are about as fearful of The NCAA as they would be of a toothless chihuahua. And rightfully so.

    Thanks to that "governing body" the word "amateur" has all but lost it's meaning in regards collegiate athletics.

    That's why the NCAA loves universities like NC State, and fans like the "Ark Builder", because they will disown and discredit their own kind, without ever batting an eye.

    I agree completely about Parker. We should offer and get him committed as soon as possible. Makes no sense to try to hold a scholly open for Leslie as some have suggested. I think Parker has just as much potential as Leslie, maybe even more. Also if Leslie had any serious intent on playing for the Wolfpack he would never have opened his recruiting back up. I just don't realistically see him coming to State.
    BTW Harrow is the real deal, bet money he will be 5* at least top 25 before he gets to Raleigh
