Been a busy couple days for PC. They have received transfer Sidiki Johnson from Arizona who will be eligible to play next fall. 6'8, 235 lb PF who last year was on everybody's top 100 list, going as high as 71. Got into some trouble with Arizona's coach and was suspended, looks like maturity issues. But, according to scouts, without those issues, he definitely should have been seeing significant minutes, even on a high profile program like Arizona.
Two recruits, Ricardo Ledo and Kris Dunn made the roster for the Jordan Brand Classic game on April 14th. Only UNC, Kentucky and Arizona have 2 recruits playing.http://www.jordanbra...ast-roster.html
Gets back on the winning track with a home win vs. Rutgers last night, but the biggest news is that Nerlens Noel, the #2 ranked 2013 recruit reclassified for 2012. He listed PC as one of his finalists. He immediately became ESPN's #1 2012 recruit.
Furthermore, a source has said that Noel is "leaning towards PC"http://www.golocalpr...ing-towards-pc/
Now, I truly think there is like a 5-10% chance they land him, as they are battling with Cuse, UCONN, Kentucky, Florida and G-Town. BUT he has stated that Coach Cooley is the most inspirational coach he has come across and that he likes that Cooley has a plan for PC. Him and Ledo and Dunn are friends. His two teammates, Wayne Selden and Brandon Bibbs said in an interview that they both see him going to Kentucky (this was a few months ago) and Noel said (from the background) that name schools aren't everything. Sometimes they are just that, a name and you have to do whats right for you and follow your heart...damn now I am talking myself into thinking they have an OK shot...I'll stop now.
