Some of you guys should just stop watching sports if you're going to be so miserable all the time.

Why would Tyndall have a better shot than Barnes? Because he'd agree to get someone to do his homework for him?

A Snippet:

The 6-foot-1, 170-pound point guard and Scout five-star prospect from the 2018 class ranks as the No. 12 talent in the nation. Joining him on his Rocky Top trip was his father Winston Garland, who played seven seasons in the NBA before wrapping up his career in Italy.

"We enjoyed the whole experience of what Tennessee has to offer and the basketball program," the former pro told InsideTennessee. "Coach Barnes is a real treat to talk to about his experience and what he plans to do with the team. We just enjoyed talking basketball with him.

"The goal was to get Darius on campus and show him the first-class facilities they have and to get a feel for Ol' Rocky Top. We toured the campus, and it's a beautiful campus.

"Darius is also good friends with Jordan Bone and Jordan had some real insightful things to say about how he's enjoying his time up at UT. It was a good visit all-around for him."

"There's no front-runner now," father Garland said. "It's great he's able to take some unofficials but he's not leaning one way or another.

Lol, I heard about his tweet where he bashed the Indians for not letting him throw out the first pitch of a game.

He's a pathetic, diseased tool. Good for the Indians for not embracing that scum bag.

Just watched some film on this good. He's good.

First things first, he's a point guard. The basketball is natural in his hands. He does a great job being efficient with his moves. He doesn't overdo anything. He also is a very gifted passer. I always look in high school where A) A player anticipates a pass and B) Where he locates the pass. He's elite at both. He has excellent timing in the PNR and he's very good at getting in the rim, drawing the defense in, and being quick with his passes. He's got a very good first step and also knows how to use screens to beat his man off the dribble.

He's a good scorer. I saw highlight tapes (not actual game film) so I saw all the good but I love that he can finish with either hand and due to his size has learned a floater in the lane that he can use. It's also quick to get over taller defenders. Also not afraid to use the glass. Good body control. Made some nice moves to create space in the air and finish. Also can do that with his passing ability.

Nice form on this shot. Shoots it a little under and and a little out in front for my liking but he has good follow through. He also can get it off really quick and looks balanced when he rises up to shoot. Can definitely be a shooter.

One thing I noticed (or didn't find) in his game on watching was a pull up jump shot. Now he does a great job using floaters within 12 feet but I didn't find anything in the 15-18 feet range. A part of this can definitely be at his age and level he hasn't needed one yet but for a point guard that pull up jumper can be very beneficial.

No defensive tape but he's definitely 5'11/6'0 and I didn't notice very long arms or big hands or anything about his body that suggests great defender but that doesn't mean he can't be a good one. Really hard to guess anything with highlights.

If I had to make an NBA comparison, think right handed Mike Conley. Good shooter, very good using either hand to finish, excellent floater, and knows how to play the position. I think he's a better passer but probably won't be the defender that Mike is. But again, he is 16/17. Either way, I definitely can see why he's rated so high.
