His dad played here and he would be a great legacy player. Pitino wants him.

The PF position will be wide open his freshman year. Garcia could replace Coffee at the 3. With Oturo and Gabe. We would be amazing. Suggs would have a hard time passing that team up knowing they could be a final four team with him.

It’s all coming together.

I admire your homerism, and hope you're right. But Garcia is not even close to a 3.

Wrong! On the offensive end Garcia has plenty to his game to play the three his has a unique offensive skill set.

Garcia could absolutely play the 3 in the Big-10. A front line of Oruru, Dainja, Carcia would be insane.

It would be, but I think a monster year from Oturu and he is off to the NBA.

We always overrate our own players. How about we see some 1st team All-B1G performances before we predict our players are jumping to the NBA. No reason to go there yet.

Garcia can definitely play 3. He plays more like a wing than a post any way and with the length of Oturu and another big like Dainja the Gophers would have a team that can be solid in a 2-3 zone.

He is a wing player. He grew up playing guard until he grew to 6'10. I've seen him play dozens of times, he could easily guard wing players.

An athletic 6'10 wing player would be insane. I'm going to keep my head in the sand and predict a Suggs, Dawson, Dainja and Walton class for 20-21.

Your ripping on the kid. Taking shots at him now that he is not coming here. Pretty big insult to the whole family and without a ounce of proof.

Lol what are you talking about? I was making a joke about Scott Drew. I didn’t even say anything about Dainja or his family. Relax.

Since you seem to be unfamiliar with Coach Drew, here’s an interesting article for you to read: https://www.cbssports.com/college-b...eived-to-be-the-biggest-cheater-in-the-sport/

Garcia is the real target anyway. Garcia, Suggs, Madsen, Walton.

Weird, worked on my phone. Try this one: https://www.cbssports.com/college-b...eived-to-be-the-biggest-cheater-in-the-sport/

Basically, a bunch of coaches were asked anonymously who they felt were the biggest cheaters. 36% said Calipari, 34% said Scott Drew. Here is a quote from one of the coaches regarding Drew:

"I don't even have to blink when I say the answer. He's despised by a lot of people because he comes off holier than God. Meanwhile, everyone knows he's had to cheat big-time to get the program to where it's at. If it wasn't for the God stuff he wouldn't rub people the wrong way as much."

Stay classy GH.

Pitino loses another in-state priority, and we have to go with the “Baylor is scum” story.

The bigger question is will Pitino land any of the top 2020 priorities...

Lol, it's really not that serious. Lighten up a bit. Good luck to Dainja. I always root for MN kids (as long as they don't go to Wisconsin).

Still plenty of time to fill the 2020 class. Hopefully Garcia and others want to stay home.
