I think we were favored to land him until B will committed.

I’m hoping that a Akinjo commit would be the commit that breaks the recruiting dam we’ve had lately.

Seems like the transfer market is becoming as important as HS recruiting.

I aint got a dime, but what I got is mine. I aint rich but Lord I'm free.

I think he committed to Georgetown before Williams recommitment but regardless this would huge if we could snag him. His efficiency isn't impressive but he's a tough hard-nosed PG who I think would really strive under Miller plus given our need and lack of PGs out there this is a must.

If b.will is healthy next year we could have 2 point guards if we land akinjo  plus there is baker an terry  I know the situation with b.will is uncertain so we need a point guard plus b.will can play the 1 an 2 akinjo also looks like he defends   it would be a big get.

Hopefully  Arizona did not blow it with akinjo last night  I know he is interested in gonzaga an they were better last night  at the same time there is an opening for him next year  at Arizona  an he could interpret  it as Arizona really needs him in 2020.

Any indication on how the visit went? I've read some mixed things on this kid, but we are a bit slow on the recruiting trail this year.

Boeheim can be an ass at times but it's strange for a coach to openly attack a player like this. smh

The unfortunate thing is that there's a lot of truth to Boeheim's statement.  All of the Georgetown losses live and die by Akinjo's A:TO ratio.  His shooting has been consistently bad since arriving on campus & his game has always reminded me of Kobi's.

Hoping Akinjo tries to emulate Nico's game (if he ends up in Tucson).

So the prospect who left the coast because his family wanted him to get away is now coming BACK to the West?

If I were to spitball some programs I think will be a good fit for him: Oregon/Washington/USC/ASU are some that will have a hole/need for a quality guard and could use his skill set.

It's being reported that Gonzaga and Oregon will be Arizona's biggest competition. Arizona is right there in the recruitment

BTFD!
