I was told Moors has a number of offers from mid-majors, and all want him to come for a visit, but he's one of those guys who, when he matures and gets more exposure in the US through tournaments, will have many more offers.
You're good to go, grasshopper....

As a student you are part of the university environment that any athletic or academic recruit is on campus to visit, and besides, it would be pretty dispiriting if a recruit were to visit UP and be given the "silent treatment" by the students.

As Moors already has a number of offers, and as UP is the first campus he's visited, let's hope his experience is a positive one in part because of students and professors he's met and he decides to give the Pilots a verbal commitment before leaving campus this afternoon.

Never saw a Seinfeld episode until the last one when we thought we'd find out why everyone loved the program so much. But I did track down the bit about the Moors and Moops....it even includes StudentPilot's friend, the guy with the "Kramer haircut," Kramer!

With four more official visits to take (and likely a lot of unofficial visits), James Moors did not give a verbal commitment to UP yesterday.

I read a blog that said he currently has at least 8 offers and will likely pull down quite a few more as his team plays the July circuit in the US.

Moors will graduate in December, so he's a likely candidate to sign during the early period in November.

As expected, the first of the Big-10 offers to Chicago native George Conditt has come from Illinois.  Conditt now has at least 17 offers, and it's expected he'll have many, many more before he finally selects a place to go to school next year.

The Pilots, always on the lookout for someone with both an inside and outside game, have offered 6-7, Zack Naylor, a 3/4 combo who just finished his freshman season at Weatherford Community College...about 30 minutes west of Ft. Worth, Texas.

Naylor (#12 in the video) averaged 20 points and 9 rebounds in his freshman season at Weatherford.

Averaged 16.7 points and 8.8 rebounds in JUCO last year... in only 13.1 minutes/game! That comes to 50.8 points per 40 minutes.

Minutes played aren't tracked consistently at the JUCO level, and in games they're not tracked they just list everyone with a stat as having one minute played. He's likely a 30+ MPG guy given those numbers.

Still impressive stats for a freshman in JUCO ball, for sure.

Edit: Here's his game log for last year - http://www.gosdmesa.com/sports/mbkb/2016-17/bios/ojunkwu_armstrong_epmz?view=gamelog&pos=sh

With PFs Austin Stone, Tahirou Diabate, and Hugh Hogland already on the roster, yesterday's offer to 6-8 PF Mehkel Harvey from Huntington Beach means the Pilots now have seven known offers to high school power forwards for 2018.

Pretty obvious the staff would like to sign a couple of PFs or a C when D'Marques and Philipp graduate....

UP just offered 6-11/200 New Zealand C Yuat Alok, a sophomore this coming season at Chipola JUCO in Florida.
