Good looking player, he could play here right away, But right now I have no faith in Marty's ability to sign anyone of any significance, Hate sounding like such a downer, Sorry- Tough off season

He does appear to be talented, but I am concerned about the other offers. That's not a very pretty list of who has offered him so far. Outside of Drake, that is very low D-1. Even Marty should be able to close the deal with that group.

Note that this kid and Messiah Jones both play at Simeon Academy. Could it be a package deal for the two of them?

Simeon is a perennial powerhouse. I'm not sure how much these boys know each other unless they played travel ball together because Pinson just transferred to Simeon this summer.

Yes, and in a powerhouse league. They have cranked out a lot of D1 talent, some P5 talent, and some NBA'ers. Benji Wilson, Nick Anderson, Deon Thomas, Derrick Rose, Jabari Parker, et al.

Another interesting thing to watch will be when they go head-to-head against Maurice Commander's team (Curie) in December. Curie is loaded as well. 2016 4A State Champs.

Finally got around to watching the highlights of the Chicago guys. I was most impressed with Pinson and Commander. Good PG skills as well as a shot. That's something we never have. Either one would be great to see in an Aces uniform.
