Myreon is another high level recruit by Walter. A 4-Star and ranked #101 according to 247 Sports. He originally committed to Memphis but decommitted and now has been offered by UE.

This is how we are going to move the program forward and not compete against the likes of Campbell and William & Mary for players. According to an article out of Memphis Myreon was the #1 recruit in Alabama.

We are knocking on the right doors we just need a few to open.

Actually in their final rankings, Myreon jumped up to number 81 in 247 sports rankings. This guy could/would immediately change the outlook of our team.

This is what we needed. Beating on doors of high level players. The answer can only be no if you don’t try to get them. Good for coach Mac. I have a feeling that we are going to land a high profile player. Maybe this will be the one.

I'm sure Myreon is a good player.But I'm wondering if UE is offering him as a ploy to possible speed up Dedrics decision.Would be great to sign both them.

Not so sure about this philosophy. Suppose all of these "high level players" say no and still has open scholarships in 3 weeks. Then suddenly McCarty is branded as an unsuccessful recruiter.

Not predicting that will happen, but there are long term risks in play.

No need for a ploy, Aces have lots of scholarships still available. (5 I think?)

There is a reason that coaches extend offers to at least double if not more than the scholarships available. Because they are willing to take that risk. Glad to see Coach is going after these kids, but that doesn’t mean those are all he goes after. A door that you don’t knock on is a door that doesn’t get answered.

Coach McCarty is a high profile coach, Simmons was not. There’s a difference in the level of recruit you can offer and hope to be successful. Most premium recruits are interested in how they can get to the NBA and McCarty has a path.
