This is a feature that I have been doing on the Premium side for the last several months. I'm going to expand it over here. The vast majority of the posts pertain to our "main" competitors and NCAA related stuff. I will try if for a few weeks to see if you folks like it.

One of Duke's biggest holes on next year's roster was supposed to be in the middle. After missing on a couple of post recruits in the class of 2020, coach Mike Krzyzewski faced having only one center on next year's roster. That changed Tuesday as Columbia graduate transfer Patrick Tape, a 6-foot-10, 230 pound interior player committed to Duke. (247 Sports)

Could be a good get for them.

Thanks for updating. The owner of site does not like us posting 247 stuff (direct competitor), so I have followed up with ESPN link.

Johnny Juzang is leaving Kentucky, entering the transfer portal. Probably headed back out west.

RW should offer Juzang and Whitney, and I have my reasons for saying that.
Care to share or just blowing smoke like others on here who say "I can't say anymore right now because of whatever reason". If u can't say what it is then say nothing at all. It's like some of you people try to feel special that u MAY know something that no one else knows.

Relax Francis. Believe or disbelieve what is posted, as you will. It’s all pretty harmless.

Why do people feel the need to question other posters’ insider information or lack thereof? After a while, you get a feel for who is a little more attuned to UNC athletics and who is blowing smoke. But you can’t take any of it as gospel.
FTH is a little abrasive, depending on who you are I guess, but it’s apparent he’s pretty plugged in on some behind the scenes stuff. I guess some folks would rather attack than acknowledge somebody had some real info, even if he just hints at it. & spare me the rebuttals, y’all that don’t like him have your opinion, & those of us that appreciate his input have ours. Agree to disagree.

Then why say anything at all. Don't throw teasers our to get sheyot stirred. Just leave it alone and keep it to yourself.

Except he doesn’t have any real info and he’s a world class scumbag.
