There is a lot of footage on Tai. This guy is really really good. Not only athletic, but great basketball skills and overall game. I think he can play either guard position and possibly the wing as well. His manner and smoothness on the court remind me a lot of Colt Ryan. I know a lot of us were disappointed the Aces could not land Sasha, but Tai looks like the real deal and could make this current recruiting class the best Marty has had. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I hope the Aces can land a guy like this, that would bring a huge upswing to our recruiting class, and if we can add Jalen then it would be a really solid class.

I agree with the above posts. I liked what I saw in the few highlights I saw of him. He can shoot and handle the ball, which are two huge attributes. Also did a nice job of both getting to the rim and finishing. Also, at least it seemed to me that he has Dru Smith super long arms. Don't know if anyone else noticed that too.

We could have our own Karl Malone/Russell Westbrook combination for four years with Silas and Tai. :)

Westbrook had 58 points tonight.

West Chicago's Bibbs worthy of all the attention

http://basketball.dailyherald.com/article/20170302/sports/170309741/

Looks like he has 16 official offers with 10 more showing interest on verbalcommits.

Definitely a legit D1 talent. Would really like to see him in an UE uniform playing with the likes of Dru Smith, Ryan Taylor, Silas Adheke, Jon Hall, Evan Kuhlman, etc. If we were fortunate to land him and a legit big man I would be ecstatic.

The signing period is right around the corner: April 12th to May 17th.

Tai is not just another "athlete". This guy is a basketball player as well. Would be a big time heist if the Aces can sign him.

This kid is the real deal...A bit of a late bloomer that would be a steal for the Aces!

This is another one of those guys we just have to find a way to sign...in the past we have failed at getting players like this.

If we want to turn the corner, we must start landing guys like this...I agree 100% with the above posts. From what I've seen from him, he would be a really good player for us.

The real huge plus with him is his ability to handle the ball and shoot. Something we really have problems with.
