Felton Lands Hoops Prospect

Felton got a commitment for the 2008 signing class from Chris Barnes, a 6'8" forward out of Riverdale.

More later.

Very nice pickup. This coming season though is extremely critical to the program's future success, esdpecially with the 08 recruiting class.

But it's always nice to get someone 6'8, with skills, out of the talent-laden southside of Atlanta. Welcome aboard 'Bam Bam'.

Sounds like a nice pick up. It's been a long time since we had a guy named "Bam Bam," (Rainey, mid-80s) and there have been far too many years when no one on the team possibly could have been named Bam Bam, except ironically. Now, we seem to be putting together a good group of big, athletic (if somewhat raw offensively) bodies.

I continue to think that graded on a curve that takes into account the degree of difficulty brought on by potential death penalty-type sanctions in the first couple of years, Felton deserves an A-, or at worst a B+, for his recruiting. That assumes Price and Barnes get in school and can stay there.

I heard Felton told him he would only offer him a scholarship if he "got his priorities right" and changed his major to Child and Family Development.........
