I believe that Saben Lee is the son of former AZ Cardinal running back, Amp Lee.

Amp Lee played for the Cardinals?

I remember him catching Joe Montana's last touchdown pass as a 49er in '92 or '93 and then moving on to various teams, but I recall him playing for the Rams before losing track of him.  He was fun to watch.

Jordan Poole, a 6-3 combo guard from Milwaukie, Wisconsin is retweeting that he's been offered by UP, Marquette, Memphis, Virginia Tech, Illinois, Sam Houston State, Auburn, and Nebraska.

Hey, that's where Coach Jackson is from....

According to multiple tweets, and repeated by his AAU team, the Dallas Mustangs, 6-0 PG Umoja Gibson has been offered by UP.

Gibson attends University HS in Waco, TX, and he too is tweeting that UP's offer is his first!  (He also used the old version of the Pilots wheel logo in his tweet....not a problem, IMO.)

The Mustangs are currently playing in Las Vegas, and the UP coaches just departed Las Vegas after evaluating a number of players at multiple games throughout the city.

Josh Gershon, a usually reliable source, is saying that UP has offered SG Adam Seiko after watching him play summer ball.  I've seen Seiko listed anywhere from 6-0 to 6-3....and there's no telling what his weight is, but I've seen it listed at 175 (I believe he's much bigger than that).

Seiko from the Sierra Canyon School in Chatsworth, CA, apparently already had offers from UCSB and USF from over a year ago.

LA Times photographer Hans Gutknecht, noted for his sports photos, took this picture of the very mature looking rising high school junior.....



This mixer tape from over two years ago shows that Seiko already had the beginnings of a body that Coach Scott could help develop at UP....

From experience, I'm usually a bit skeptical of the reports of offers to high school athletes this time of year because AAU coaches and others tend to call it an "offer," when in fact it may just be an enquiry of a player from a college basketball coach.

We've seen a number of players listed as having offers from UP in recent years by various websites, but further checking often revealed the player was really not known by the UP staff because they had never talked face-to-face with the young man.  July is for evaluating a player's talents, not so much about evaluating his heart, head, commitment, and personality.

After his recent international trip:
Coach Rev wrote: If you are going to ask about "offer", I will ask about "commitment". Can't help myself. Not interested in guys who want to count offers.
I think in many cases a "true offer" is not made until the staff has had the opportunity to establish a relationship with a recruit and has a better idea of how that recruit might fit into the Pilots family.
Coach Rev wrote:  Maybe I'm recruiting romantic but let's get to know each little pre-offer.  Or else, is that offer text even worth the MB it was sent with?

Um, well I just assumed it was a megabyte, normally abbreviated MB.

And, if for example, your texting/calling plan limited you to 250 MB per month, you'd want to use some discretion on how you might use those MBs.

Jeez, I'm the old one here.... Rolling Eyes

The MB was about the one thing I understood there. Not sure what he meant by "let's get to know each little pre-offer" but then again, I'm not sure if I was exposed to the entire recruiting process when I walked onto a crappy Div II baseball team as a benchwarmer.

But really, there's "pre-offers" ?

It's all about the fit....let's get to know each other better, and learn if and why you are interested in playing at UP before you are actually tendered an offer.

Even a D2 benchwarmer knows about foreplay, right? Razz

Kobe King, the son of former Wake Forest and NBA player, Chris King, is a 6-3 wing from LaCrosse, Wisconsin.
With firm offers from Wisconsin, Marquette, Iowa State, Northern Iowa, Valparaiso, Wisconsin-Green Bay, Indiana University-Purdue University, and Creighton, I'm guessing that heading out west to UP is probably not Kobe's first choice at this point.

Another PG is saying he's received an offer from UP:
Myles Franklin wrote:  Blessed to receive another offer from Portland University #GoPilots  
By "another offer" I believe young Myles is referring to his already existing offers from LMU and CS Fullerton.

Franklin is 6-4/155 and goes to high school in Villa Park, California.

I see Kobe committed to the Badgers today. I go to the effort of mentioning this mainly because we haven't had a post on the basketball forum in darn near two weeks!

The Pilots have offered a scholarship to Kolby Lee, a 2017 center from Idaho:

Reveno also saying that the staff is recruiting 2017 prospects now, seemingly confirming what we think we know -- that the 2016 class is already full: 2 graduating seniors (Pressley and Livingston), and 2 incoming freshmen (Monson and Smoyer)

Lots of competition for this Kolby Lee. I see Utah State, Toledo, Kent State, and Boise State all have offered him as well.

As you can imagine by the schools that are after him, he's not exactly an under-the-radar type - a FOUR star recruit according to ESPN.
