Love Bradley's program and the city of Peoria, but I find this choice peculiar. I wish Alex the very best, except against Evansville.

We're kinda loaded at the SG position for the next couple of years.

Not sure he could get on the court ahead of the two transfer shooting guards. Not so sure he will be able to defend them either. We will see

Those crystal ball predictions are obviously wrong from time to time, but 24/7 is the industry leader for recruiting news and it makes sense.

I'm not surprised by anything as it relates to recruitment in this day and age. Frankly, I'd rather have Allen-Elkens whose skill set seems to fit our needs a bit better, but more importantly, we need a BIG or two more than we need a 2 guard. So, I'm with Walter going for Dixon and Height.

That said, the Bradley choice, is a little surprising, as was the inclusion of DePaul in his earlier list.

If we can get two guys between these three, EIkens, Dixon, and LaRavia I'll be ecstatic.

I'm not as high on Height - as I don't see him fitting this system. More of a Marty screener / rim protector and is definitely a project. Granted he could probably have some value and I'd take him but the other guys have more of a skillset that, at least I think, fits what he is wanting to do. Could be completely wrong.

This!

Wish him the best, and will follow his career no matter where he goes, usually do with the local talent. Would be nice to play him every year and be able to compare him to our own players.

Crazy difference from one year ago when he would have been a Huge get for us.
We shall see we shall see!!

Why did I think that he already gave a verbal to Bradley?

Castle HS Athletics (@CastleAthletics) tweeted at 1:30 PM on Tue, Oct 30, 2018:
Alex Hemenway will make his college announcement at 2:45 on Friday in the CHS Cafeteria. All members of the media and public are welcome to attend. His final four list is narrowed to Clemson, Creighton, DePaul, and Belmont.

Well done, Coach Simmons. You accomplished what you were hired to do.

So, when Marty is fired or moves into a different assistant coaching role in the future, will Hemenway ask for a release, follow him, and ask his new school’s compliance department to push for a waiver?
