Some good info in there. Rumor from URI board that he wanted to go to Georgetown but offer didn't materialize. Georgetown was listed as having interest though so wonder if this is a kid who Anthony Solomon has been in touch with and built a relationship.

Noticed he has an offer from Jacksonville State, which is a great sign. If Ray Harper likes him enough to offer him, he must be good.

He's rated slightly better than McKinley. UD offered him a year ago...he settled for Pitt and we eventually signed McKinley.

The only issue with Thompson is that UD needs PGs who can play this season. Gotta get grad transfers, jucos, or freshmen so they can play next year.

Edit: I was wrong he would be an incoming Freshman. Thanks Oke88

He is class of '17 and can play immediately.

Couple of tweets relevant to Dayton:

@coreyevans_10 Illinois has offered 2017 @MtZionPrep forward Obadiah Toppin

@coreyevans_10 Former Dayton signee Nahziah Carter may no longer want a prep year. City Rocks wing showing major upside & versatility early on

Definitely UD has interest in Frankie Hughes as a transfer.

Some interest in Malcolm Nicholas III as a 4 year guy but to what degree I don't know.

Nahziah Carter thought about AG's advice to prep for a year, for mere days before changing his mind. Now if that doesn't seem like the classic brush-off by AG? Hope AG can do better because he'll never be a Flyer now..

I didn't see where AG told him to prep, that was his discission as from his mother's tweeting on this. One he is 16 won't turn 17 til this summer. Hell he was going to prep until he committed to Archie

Seems to me a mutual accord was made between AG and NC to prep for a year. If AG wanted him he'd be here. I was referring to the end of that tweet where it notes his development. Accounts I read had NC developing nicely until Archie left for IU. I hope AG can replace him with a comparably talented player.

Everyone needs to remember that even with Wright, Carter, Davis, and Pierce, UD's recruiting class was not ranked in the top 100. There seemed to be a ton of potential, but nothing that was sure.

Will be interesting to see how AG's recruiting classes end up ranking. Going to guess it could take a few years though, as he hasn't been recruiting for several years and everyone is new to UD.

Agree it'll be interesting to compare recruiting rankings in a few years. But one of Archie's strengths was player development, so it's not as important where they start as where they finish. But if they come in the door more highly ranked, I'll take that. To clarify, it hasn't been "several years" since AG recruited. It's only been two. I think he'll remember.

Not the overall ranking, but as I recall Scoochie and Kyle were both around 120. Not sure about Kendall. I think the first Top 100 player Archie got (other than transfers) was Kostas (around 89).

Kyle Davis was a three-star by most services, though Scout had him ranked 99 and a four-star: http://www.scout.com/player/155266-kyle-davis

Same was true of Scoochie, though Rivals was the outlier and had him a four-star at 106: https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/26083

Kendall Pollard was a three-star both with Scout and Rivals: https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/49278

And yes, Rivals had Kostas at 89 and a four-star: https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/4796

It's not the number of stars that carried the most weight with Archie. The whole deal was his consistent ability to turn them into a dedicated True Team. It will be interesting to watch what he recruits to Indiana, where the fans whine if the recruit isn't a celebrated Steve Alford in HS.

True, but it helps to have those stars too. Jordan Sibert was a four star recruit ranked #39 in the country. We won five NCAA Tournament games with him, and none after he left. Stars don't mean everything, but I would rather turn a bunch of 4-stars into a True Team than a bunch of 3-stars. I'm hoping that AG will be able to get some higher rated recruits AND coach them up.

As has been said a billion times....Archie will have more obligations at IU. He will have to hob nob with donors,admin and alumni exponentially more then when he was here. As Chris has stated, the current and previous AD did their best to minimize the crap he had to deal with.

He was KING in this town. His shortcomings were overlooked and excused. WE LOVED HIM. He could do no wrong. The Admin wanted to pay him in the Top 10. Not in the state, not in the A-10, not in the Non-Power 5.....THE ENTIRE FREAKING NATION.

Archie now enters a pressure cooker where he will be under the microscope. First NIT year or underperforming season under huge expectations and the sharks will circle.

The grass is rarely greener on the other side.

Can we move on from the "True Team" marketing slogan since we have a new coach? It was an Archie thing and it's time to move on.

And the whole "Are you the 6th" marketing they did was kind of silly too.

Carter update from Rivals

Recruitment: Just reopened after signing to Dayton in the fall; schools that have reached out including Georgetown, Georgia Tech, UMass, Indiana and Boston College.

His day: Despite his inability to find the hoop on his 15-feet and out jump shots, Nahziah Carter was still impressive as he scored at the basket on highlight dunks and defended more than two spots on the floor; he finished with 13 points and three rebounds in the win.

Quote: “I plan to go to college this summer and prep school is an alternative, just in case I don’t get the right fit, but my plan is to go to college this year.”

Prediction: Way too early to tell as Boston College is the only program that has offered since backing off of his original commitment.

Archie = True Team. Like it or not that is the most prominent stamp on his tenure. We'll see if that concept follows him. You can't erase our history.

I'm not saying erase it from history. I'm just hoping that the team and marketing department moves on from using it anymore in the future since UD has a new coach now.
