I'm not doubting he told the team he was related to McClain, but it wouldn't be the first time a kid blew smoke about being related to someone famous.
I just looked into and he is from Decatur, I thought he just went to high school there because I know he stayed with a few different families. He had a tough road for sure.

Maybe they are cousins and close like brothers? Who knows

I'm about 90% sure they aren't related, but I could be wrong.

It's not out of the realm of possibility that they are close, just don't think they are blood relatives.

Edit: He is originally from Decatur
It's not a possibility that they are close. They are and Jabari and Galen confirmed that. Now I can't confirm (without DNA) that a are blood relatives but Detrick says they are. My ONLY point here is he had the attitude of a brat being spoiled by someone close to him in the NFL.

Interestingly enough, I actually ran into St John's athletic trainer and they love Tariq. They say he hasn't put on much weight but they love what he brings to program. He was showing me pictures he took when St John's upset Syracuse and Tariq had a huge game. I think Tariq will continue to succeed there IMO.

What's up with WKU and McGhee? He was getting a lot of minutes and they had a nice 5 game winning streak going. His minutes have declined and they're on a 4 game losing streak. He only played 9 minutes at Marshall.

Jabari McGhee 2016-17 GGame Log | College Basketball at Sports-Reference.com

Looks like his foul frequency has been cut by a third. But his turnovers are way up.

AJ is getting a lot of minutes. Solid rebounder, inconsistent scorer. Tariq was a rebound away from a double double versus DePaul. Thompson has been steady... not spectacular.

Game by game stats are way down at the bottom of each player's linked page. Click the last link ("More Player Pages") and then the year.

I was really disappointed when we didn't get Phil Cofer. Doesn't look like he's doing much at FSU.

He started off well but hasn't been able to return the same.

Out of the guys we've missed. I wish we had Rob Gray/Braxton Key/Chris Clarke (wow all Donnie targets too). They'll all killing it for their team.

I can't say what's happening with WKU but for Jabari ...he's dealing with the devastation of not one but 2 tornadoes in his hometown which affected his immediate family and many friends.
