Koprivica is gonna be tough to pull from Kentucky. If anyone can do it though, it's Coach L.

For those of us who do not follow BB recruiting, who are these guys? Do we have a legitimate shot with any of them?

Balsa is the number 4 player in the country, if we could somehow get both omg. It'd obviously be the 2 best players we've signed ever, not saying they'll be godly but they'll definitely ball out.

Read somewhere that 8 to 9 out of the top 10 recruits end up making it to the NBA, so this would be huge. 65% of the top 22 make it to the NBA (McDonald's all Americans).

Just to add... Michael Devoe is a 6 ft3/4 PG for Oakridge high up here in Orlando. He will be a 4 year starter. Very smooth scorer and savvy passer. Not a tremendous jumper but he is a very talented player. Miami offered him last year.

Carey is a 6-9, 245 PF. He's a 5-star and rated .9985 by 247. He's the #3 player in the nation, the #2 PF in the nation and the #2 player in Florida overall. His dad, obviously, is this guy

He has offers from Miami, Louisville, UF, UConn, FSU, Baylor, Tennessee, and St. Louis. He's class of '19 though, so he might get taller and will probably get offers from Duke, UK, etc, who are all recruiting (if they have't officially offered him too). His crystal balled to Miami, FWIW, at 100%. He's been on Miami's campus a ton according to a lot of people, and loves Miami. I've also seen a lot in the media say he'll likely be a 1 and done, which is fine if he's that good.

.9985 is underestimating him. I rate him somewhere between .9986779 and .9987241

Carey should be all UM, barring some crazy happening. Some sites have him ranked FIRST in the ENTIRE class of 2019.

2019 kids won't get the same coverage kids like Knox get just given the timing/proximity to actually signing.

We are after both hard but Carey is the #1 target for L and co.
