    Slight difference now since you can't hand check anyone, but this kid is still likely a reach. He'd need some PG skills.

    I know Caleb Tanner well...I am currently at a DIII school and we are recruiting Caleb. His lack of size and "tweener" skill set would keep him from being a mid-major D1 prospect, much less a high-major. His scoring skills are without question. But even as a "lowly" DIII, he is still 5th on our board at the PG spot, and third tier overall.

    He would be someone worth offering a walk-on spot to for sure. I hope they don't for selfish reasons (ha!) but I wouldn't look to him as the second coming of Steph Curry

    I also know Caleb Tanner well. He is the hardest working and dedicated ball player that I know. Also, he is a good of a person as he is a ball player.

    Yeah, because all 6'1" guys grow over the summer
    Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand

You could say that Adam Smith is undersized and he's certainly fitting in well for us.

    If this kid has Curry-type skills, I hope they don't let him get away like we did the Curry boys. That still irks me to no end.
    Me, too, no matter how many times people would tell whoever complained to let it go. It was characteristic of the personality conflicts that seem to have been the reason Seth was let go. Losing the legacy (yes we know all the other schools did not line up for them out of high school) was devastating. Had they both come to Tech, things would have turned out very differently.
    I say give the kid a shot. JJ and his coaches appear to be able to recognize under-rated kids who can play.

    50 in game 6.
    Now averaging 48.5 ppg
    He will really be challenged defensively by Radford (state champs) tonight though and they already know him well. I think they held him under 20 once last year.
