  1. One of my favorite signees from this past class. he was a lot of fun to watch with the ball in his hands in high school so I'm glad to see our staff is confident with giving him a real shot on offense. i know we need bodies at db and that might be where he ends up. But he seems like too exciting of a player to not give a shot at being a RB/wr, imo.
  2. Chris Morris (4th), Chuck Pearson (4th), Barkley (5th) they also list Toney Douglas as our most recent draft pick, even though he didn't finish his career with us.
  3. Not something I would have guessed tbh
  4. Yup, everyone is going to want this kid if they don't already. I'm glad we were in on him early. That plus his (and our) good relationship(s) with Christian Brown might give us a decent shot at both of them.
  5. It's still early on but Hagans got a big bump in the new rivals rankings. Now a top 10 player according them (top 25 for both ESPN and 247)
  6. Ashton Hagans (PG prospect) also plays on Browns team. Pretty big game for some of our bigger recruits, glad our staff is there. ETA: Brown and Hagans win. And:
  7. EJ had a good day from what I've seen, he's gonna be special.
  8. July 9, 2017 AUBURN, Ala. – Sophomore Austin Wiley totaled 8 points, 8 rebounds and a block in 20 minutes as the United States won the bronze medal with a 96-72 victory over Spain in the FIBA U19 World Cup Cario, Egypt at the Cairo Stadium on Sunday. Wiley shot 3-of-6 from the field and 2-of-4 from the foul line with half of his eight rebounds on the offensive glass. Wiley was the only American to average a double-double and one of seven in the U19 World Cup with 10.3 points and 10.9 rebounds in 19.9 minutes per game for the tournament as the United States went 6-1. He shot 50 percent from the field. The Hoover, Ala., native’s 40-minutes per game averages would be 20.5 points and 21.7 rebounds. The United States dominated Germany from the start, leading 25-8 after the first quarter, 49-30 at the half and 68-45 after three. The United States shot 54 percent from the field, 63 percent (12-of-19) from 3-point range and 65 percent (24-of-37) from the foul line. The Americans had a 51-35 rebound advantage. USA was upset by Canada 99-87 despite Wiley’s 13 points and game-high 17 rebounds in the FIBA U19 World Cup semifinals on Saturday. Wiley won gold last summer as he averaged 8.0 points and a team second-best 6.4 rebounds for Team USA’s gold medal winner at the FIBA Men’s U17 World Championship in Zaragoza, Spain in 2016. For additional information, go to and Tucker in response to Wiley's lowish FG%:
  9. Seems Barrett was nothing short of unstoppable. Tucker mentioned that Wiley still had a good game and even said he thought team USA should feed Wiley the ball to get out of the jam they were in. USA will face Spain for Bronze.
  10. Hopefully those failed attempts show our coaches what he needs to work on. The rebounding will be huge. If we get Chuma back and healthy and he rebounds to his potential, we shouldn't be getting crushed on the boards as much.
  11. I didn't watch the game but was he getting many looks in the post? I feel like the "all-stars" this team has on the wings and with how short timed their practice-duration was, a lot of their points will come from fast breaks and running ISO's with Diallo and co. and not "designed" plays and post touches. Even if Wiley doesn't bring a mastered post game to us this year, if his rebounding in this tournament is any sort of sign for things to come then we're in for a sizable improvement vs what we saw last year. Of course he isn't playing against a bunch of other 4*-5* centers in these games but he seems to have a much better eye for where he needs to be for rebounds. In addition to being a lot more active with tip ins and rebound fights, from the 30-40 minutes total + highlights that I've watched.
  12. 7'5"...... From DX: In case you were worried that you/I might be pumping too much sunshine, we're not alone...
  13. Like the post above me said, Wiley didn't play too much and it seemed a couple of the other bigs were getting in time. I didn't watch the beginning of the game so he could have gotten in early foul trouble for all I know. but I never saw Wiley in until the 4th quarter.
  14. Auburn basketball’s Austin Wiley may not have been celebrating the Fourth of July stateside, but he contributed to some fireworks for the United States on Tuesday. The Tigers center helped Team USA to another blowout win, 98-65 against Italy, helping the Americans remain undefeated (3-0) in FIBA U19 World Cup pool play. Team USA plays Mali on Wednesday in the round of 16 at a time to be determined. Wiley finished with 9 points and a team-high 11 rebounds in 21-plus minutes against Italy. Wiley is the only USA player to average a double-double in the three games — 10 points and 12.7 rebounds in 19.1 minutes per game. In the USA’s blowout win over Angola on Saturday, Wiley came up with 13 points and 12 rebounds in the first half, adding 3 more points and 4 more rebounds after halftime. The rising sophomore had a strong opening half against the Italians, too, grabbing 7 rebounds and scoring 7 points. RELATED: Austin Wiley notches double-double in USA’s blowout win over Angola Not surprisingly, the team’s captain recorded one of the highest plus-minus ratings on the day (+26). Wiley currently leads Team USA with 12 rebounds per game in the 2017 FIBA World Cup, four ahead of his next closest teammate.

The Americans are going for their third consecutive gold medal in Cairo, Egypt.
