DeMatha Rising Soph 2/3 - DJ Harvey Jr '17 - 19th in ESPN Top 25

+

Memphis offered Harvey Jr in July. He started as a frosh, and is already 6'6", 210 lbs. Harvey Jr. usually defended an opponents' best player, and sometimes covered the opponent's PG to disrupt their flow. I hope we get involved, even if Team Takeover is Harvey's squad.

Excellent 30 for 30 piece on Benji Wilson

+

I watched both the initial airing (and repeat last night) of the Benji Wilson story. Any Terps fans will be blown away by the Len Bias-esque potential that was lost with Wilson. And his meteoric rise to highest ranked HS-er? Legendary stuff.

Not sure if the staff needs to depending on feelings towards any of the other higher rated guards being looked at, but he may be worth a look. 6' PG w/ 6'6" wingspan...plus, he's from my hometown :)
