Dang are you guys really over here saying Auburn has cheated and that is why the basketball program is better these days? Thats just really sad to see from our own fans on our own board. I hate how th

I see a little bit of Orange and Blue tinted comments. Prior to his announcements saying he was re-opening his recruitment there were multiple positive posts about how well he was doing and was better

Offers from Kansas and Kentucky...Oh yeah Bruce is going to develop the hell out of this kid. 7 foot at 15 years old lol is he going to be like 7'3 by the time he graduates HS???

He played some this year in KY and the coach said he had grown to 7'1".  This will be a terrific addition. Welcome to the family Sage!

Has nice touch for a big man. Like that we stole him getting UK, KU. Maybe a Michael Porter JR type. We'll see. 

No disrespect but I disagree with the MPJ comparison for Sage unless there is an angle I'm not considering. MPJ was widely regarded as the consensus #1 pick in the NBA draft for years up until literally minutes before the draft due to his back problem while it feels like almost nobody on the mainland knew who Sage was until like yesterday lol

More just talking about his length, athleticism and ability to shoot.

I just don't see that comparison. But I'm not here to argue, agree to disagree sir! 

Either way I'm excited about this kid. We have never had this type of height on the floor under Bruce and the fact that teams will need to respect his 3 ball...I thought I was excited about this year but the next few years???? There's going to be some serious talent in the program

Coach Pearl and the staff are doing amazing on the recruiting front! I love Sage's game. He moves well, finish well, has a soft touch, he blocks efficiently and from what I saw he has a pretty good shot when given time. I really like this commit!

Seems like the Chet Holmgren, Kai Sotto, Walker Kessler archetype Bruce has wanted for a couple seasons now. I'm not the biggest fan of that type compared to the 6'9-11 small ball 5s, but these light weight, slim jim, super skilled 7 footers are only becoming more desired so....

cant beat em join em!

ATM ... does that make CBP our third string recruiter ... I kid, I kid...

honestly I think if you took our staff and translated it to an older power, ala Marquette, UCLA, Wake Forest, someone who's made a semi recent run, they'd be top 10 perennially in recruiting

McDonald's takeaways: RYZE Tip-Off Classic

Emerson, GA -- The RYZE Hoops Tip Off Classic took over the Atlanta area this weekend at LakePoint Sports Champions Center with much of the top talent in the Southeast taking the floor. Dan McDonald recaps many of the standout performances from the event.

Sage Tolentino committed early to Auburn, but we had yet to get a solid evaluation of him. After seeing him this weekend with TSF Mack, it’s clear he’s going to make a sizable move into the Rivals150 at the next update. The Hawaii native is a legit 7-footer with good mobility and skill. He’s a rim protector and tough on the boards. Adding strength will come in time, but he looks like a really strong early addition for Bruce Pearl’s staff.

Scoot Henderson also took the court and showed the natural ability that makes him one of the top prospects in the 2022 class. He has elite athleticism, great size, and has added strength over the past several months. He’s also a much more consistent shooter now and one of the top playmakers around. Alabama, Auburn, Florida State and Georgia are among the schools firmly in the mix for the five-star prospect.

You beat me to it! Great post brother. I’m getting excited about having a 7 footer added to the team.

I'd forgotten about this commitment. Good to remind ourselves that even while losing talented players we still have good ones lined up to join the team!

If Kessler doesn't go pro after this season, we'll have two 7 foot centers with the ability to shoot the three and drive from the perimeter. That's pretty cool.

If Kessler has the year I expect him to, he'll be going pro.

This guy will replace Kessler and we will still have Cardwell and him a long with Stretch for foul trouble. That is a damn good 5 rotation.
