He's a guy who I think will end up ranked in the ~200 range when all is said and done, and in a 5-7 man class im ok with that being the worst.

Now....if he's the headliner of the class, I've got a major issue with it yes.
You have to consider the timing of the offer when predicting where he might fit in the class. IMO offering a mid major talent in the summer is way to early to give it the benefit of the doubt

BTO you even suggested CRB shouldn't take mid major talents to fill a huge need at PG last class but now you are having a wait and see approach. Interesting change of heart

It has been a while since UT has had a player from DB........ Buck Van Huss and George Pitts used to have some good coaching matchups against each other and it is good to see CRB and his staff trying to lock down the state in recruiting.

I'm not racist, but I didn't know he was white. I was honestly surprised to see he's a white guy, but thats cool. In the below quote it says he tied the block single-season record at 93 (a little less than 3bpg) and averaged 10ppg and 6.1rpg.

Quote:
Christ School rising senior John Fulkerson, left, tied a single-season school record for blocks (93) last season.
Christ School rising senior John Fulkerson likes a good block as much as anybody.


But he's accepting a lot of phone calls lately from Division I college basketball coaches.
Fulkerson has no less than 15 scholarship offers to choose from as the 6-foot-8, 195-pound forward from Kingsport, Tenn., prepares for one last season with the Greenies.

The University of Tennessee made its pitch Tuesday.

UNC Asheville has also offered, as have Appalachian State, Ball State, Charlotte, Duquesne, East Tennessee State, Evansville, Gardner-Webb, George Mason, Middle Tennessee State, Navy, Northeastern, Samford and South Carolina Upstate.
Fulkerson is currently a member of the Tennessee Bobcats AAU program. Most of his offers have come this summer on the travel circuit.

"I like (the attention) a lot," Fulkerson said.
"This is my third year of playing (for the Bobcats). I know a lot of the players and it's the same coach. They know my strengths and we all play really well together."

Fulkerson tied a single-season school record with 93 blocks last season for the Carolinas Athletic Association champion regular-season and tournament champion Greenies (24-9).

He also led the team in scoring (10.0 points per game) and rebounding (6.1 rpg.).

Fairly sure the Christ School is where the Plumlees played. They produce a decent amount of small school basketball players.

That offer list has a Cuonzo/Tyndall kinda vibe. I just thought with RB's history, he wouldn't be recruiting against ETSU and SC Upstate


It's a little disappointing ......IMO. He should be a walking on.

It's definitely not a good sign when you go to YouTube and a player you are recruiting doesn't have a video.

Fulkerson won't be relied on to compete immediately at the wing position, you don't see the difference?

If he gets a UGA and IU offer in the following weeks will this immediately become a good offer? Honest question.

It's fairly impressive that the kid is 6'8 and is billed as a SF who is under the radar. Typically, you'd see this type of high schooler labeled a C or PF. The elite guys usually can get away with having that type of length and not be labeled a post. It says something about his skillset and athleticism if he can truly handle the ball, shoot and defend at that height.

These were your words just a few weeks ago:

"when trying to build stability why tie up a scholarship for 3-4 years on a guy who has no business being on scholarship at Tennessee?"

"As I've addressed already, I would prefer not to fill the roster for the next 3 seasons with mid major talent"


Sure would make much more sense to take a chance on a mid major talent at a position of need with no other option(that was the discussion) than in this case.

Seems like to me the flip flopping of opinions is simply based on which HC was making the offers.
