I just saw Ollie signed a 5 year extension with UCONN...that can't help our recruiting of Abu and Terrell. Hopefully Fred can still win their commitment

Alex Illikainen: Taking it all in stride
Reid Travis picked up an offer from Michigan State today.
Does anyone know if Rhoads has any interest in Reid Travis for football?
Vaughn is at the Minny/MSU game today.

Just saw Rashad Vaughn at the Minnesota Gophers game.
Selfishly hoping the Gophers can start a losing streak here, we don't need them as a top 10 ranked program come commitment time with all the talent has Minnesota has coming over the next few years.
Signee Monte Morris tallied a triple-double tonight with 21 points, 11 assists and 10 steals to lead Flint Beecher to another win.
Rashad Vaughn had 36 points tonight on 13-30 shooting for Robbinsdale Cooper, they lost 85-70.
Also, expect Fred Hoiberg to be up in the Twin Cities tomorrow for the Timberwolves shootout. Minnesota head coach and North Carolina among many others also expected.
Thomas has 23 at halftime and 6 boards. Guy he is facing averages 41 ppg.
We're going to have to have a Mizzou type lineup after Ejim leaves. In 2014 we'll have MT, MM, Maurice Jones, Clayton Custer and SDW (Rashad Vaughn?:wideeyed:) in the backcourt. There is way too much talent to have only two of those goes on the court at the same time. I think we have a three guard lineup with Niang at the four and Gibson at the 5. A NEED for this to work is to get a big down low who can do all the dirty work and also run the court. He doesen't need to very skilled offensively but we need an athletic big who can block shots, get rebounds, and get out in transition. If we can get a guy like this I think this team can do some serious damage in the future.
Posted this on another thread too. I just wanna see what everyone thinks about this
I stumbled into a couple of interview with Rashad Vaughn over on gopherhole from a couple of days ago... I thought it was interesting the Tubby Smith isn't taking the lead in recruiting him to Minnesota but leaving up to his assistant coach to sell the program.
"How often do you talk to Gophers coaches?
I talk to (assistant) Vince (Taylor) a lot.
What about Tubby Smith?
Yeah, every now and then. But mostly Vince."
