    Only one of the schools mentioned as being suitors that I would "push" him to is Stanford.

    My kid gets offered a free Stanford education...he damn well better accept.

    Other than that, I'm telling him "its UL or don't ever come home"!

    That said, Kudos to Marlin and his staff for putting up the good fight. Let's continue to build the program, get out of the SBC and maybe then we can start landing these big fish.
    Actually I would push my kid to UL. At those other spots he may just be another guy and may get lost in the shuffle. Coach Marlin has proven he can prepare guys for the next level and he would be a focal point here. Now if academics came into play regarding what type of program he wanted to study, other schools may come into play. I can tell you the reason we are being considered is the relationship our staff has developed with Dion Brown. That aside, the Dad will let the young man make his own decision.

    I just went through this with my son this year. I was pushing him to go to UL. He want to go somewhere else. He will not be attending UL. So much for me being a dictator.
    What schools is your son considering? My daughter wanted to go elsewhere but ended up at UL due to basically getting almost an academic free ride due to all the engineering scholarships she obtained. Ended up being a good decision as she was the top ranking graduate in her Department and realized she would not have received as much individual focus elsewhere. She went away for her professional experience so it all worked out. Each kid makes an individual decision and most parents support those. Back to the original post. The Hayes signing is directly related to the Julien injury and it is possible if not likely he redshirts.

    I sent you a pm.
    This signing makes sense. If he is a tough defender and can fill the Stove role this will go a long way in us having another good season.

    Defense is something you cannot tell from stats. However, I looked at the detailed stats from his final few games in JUCO and was encouraged. He hit a high % of free throws in every game, had one game over 30 points, had five threes in another, and was never out of double figures in any game. He also had good rebound and assists nos. with few turnovers.

    If Brown goes elsewhere, which I think he will although I'm holding on to that glimmer of hope, I wouldn't be surprised if this was it and no other big was signed. There usually is only 4 active bigs on the roster and you already have that in Gant, Miller, McCoy, and Gladney. Also could be a 5th if they choose to play Kristian Lafayette next year. From what I have seen of Lafayette he looks skilled and has the height to be effective, he just looks like he could use a redshirt year to bulk up.
    I don't think redshirting Lafayette will be considered. He played in prep school this past year which means he is already one year out of HS.
