'12 GA PF Tony Parker (UCLA Signee)

    I agree with the sentiment that I'd be happy with either, but I said a couple of months ago that I'd take Parker and I haven't changed my mind. Coleman is a straight post player and I don't see anything changing there (nothing wrong with that, just an observation). Parker is already expanding his game to where he can play some on the perimeter and be a PF or C and I like that flexibility. They are about the same height, but Coleman is more athletic. I like Parker's hands, shooting stroke and toughness.

    Dead on.......

    I think Coleman would have a bigger immediate impact as a freshman but I think that's all he'll do (1&done).

    I've liked Parker over Coleman for a while now, even when Coleman was the #2 ranked overall player, because you can tell that Parker is truly a good kid along with being a heckuva b-ball player.

    Parker's game also fits Matta's system well too. He could play the "bigger" Matta-4 during certain match-ups and spread the floor with his perimeter game while also being plenty physical enough to play C with 3 wings and a PG.

    I also like that Parker played AAU with Shannon Scott. With Matta recruiting a lot of kids from out of state, it's always nice to have a G and F/C with familiarity.

    Pardon my ignorance of the scholarship situation but is there only room for 1? Or is it unlikely they would both come here? It seems we could get them both on the court if the sholarship situation allows it.

    Only room for one unless someone leaves - like early for the NBA. :wink:

    We could actually take both. The B1G allows a 14th "previsionary" scholarship in case someone leaves early or transfers out. When winter qtr rolls around though, you can only have 13 total on schollie so you hardly see teams "oversign" unless they know a player is leaving, like Matta did last year.

    When Amir Williams signed, he made 14. But, Matta knew that Kecman wasn't going to stick around for his final year of eligibility (he had a med-RS season remaining had he chose to take it).
