I see that Oso is more like a skinny power forward right now, so in saying that right now, is MU recruiting a physical big anywhere that can back
up Theo next year or they just going to wait to spring and find a grad transfer?  I know MU is recruiting a lot of players but have not seen a center
type they are involved with?  Is Dawson a power forward type or can he play center?

Zed Key and Javonte Brown-Ferguson; the latter is 2021 but is considering reclassifying.

I wonder if another wave of offers will be coming after the foreign trip.  5 open spots, shrinking number of prospects; I could see a few more being extended.

I never said he's former high schooler Ben Simmons.  I said his game currently reminds me of Ben Simmons's current game.  What Ben Simmons is in the NBA reminds me of what Osa is in high school.

"Reminds me of" is fair I guess. To me he's a poor man's version (a very poor man's version) of high school Ben.

I don't know why you continue to bring up high school Ben Simmons.  I'm saying Osa's game at the high school level reminds me of Ben Simmons's game at the NBA level.  Both guys are bigger and more athletic than most of their competition, neither guy seems to have an outside shot at all, everything comes from 5 feet and in, and both have great court vision for guys who are the size of guys that typically play the forward or center spot.  One guy does it at the pro level and the other guy is doing it at the high school level.  I'm not saying Osa is just as good as Ben Simmons is or was as a high schooler.  I'm saying how Osa plays in high school reminds me of how Ben Simmons plays in the NBA.

So when is Ben Simmons committing?
Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.

Read an article on Osa from a year ago - he was asked what his motivation was to get a scholarship. Response: "I want to get a free education." Gotta love this kid.

I guess it’s safe to say that no recruiting prospect has ever picked #mubb because of Milwaukee’s weather....    ;)
