Looks like we might have gotten a "steal" with the Verbal Commit of Ben Pyles....
I have watched a little video (below). 6'8" with ball handling skills. You know who he reminds me of? You guessed it. The Hick from French Lick.

If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

Add 6'11" (and maybe still growing) Liam Robbins from Davenport Assumption to the list. I think he graduated in 2017. Spending this year at Sunrise Christian Academy (prep school) in Kansas. I think this year does count against his 5 year NCAA eligibility time but I might be wrong.

Ben Pyle is leading the McPherson Bullpup charge through the Kansas Class 4A-I state tournament this week. They won their quarterfinal game yesterday and face Arkansas City in the semifinal matchup today at 8:15 pm CT. He is ranked 125 nationally, 2nd in Kansas according to MaxPreps. I could see "Big Ben" (he is 6'7"/185 Guard and will probably need to put some muscle on his frame) and "Bigger Brandon" making a very nice outside/inside tandem next year. The stats that jump out to me are the 4+ assists/game and high shooting percentage:

I think the game tonight will be live-streamed via a link on the page below.

Update: the proverbial "bump"

UPDATE: Same Kansas prep school that Jenkins Jr from SDSU went to after graduating HS.

If this kid is still coming, we could have 3 7 footers on the squad next year. Damn.

Make that "bump2"

Update: The 125 and 2 rankings might be team instead of player. The data is a little confusing.

I hate thinking so pessimistic BUT if we would lose this kid if Billy was no longer coach, then we better keep Billy!
