    Macklin is considered the #14 prospect in the updated rankings by Scout.com released today.

    Macklin will be participating in the NIKE All-American camp this week in Indianapolis, IN.

    Reports are that Macklin has been offered by the staff. Apparently, the pecking order is Thaddeus Young, Vernon Macklin and then Morgan or Tucker.

    In light of this development, I am changing the thread to reflect the offer.

    Macklin is hearing from the staff that Oden/Conley want him as the PF. Interesting since most still think Thaddeus Young is the crown jewel they are holding out for at PF.

    Macklin is considered the #14 overall prospect in this class, he is very talented to say the least. I think Matta is targeting the kids that he thinks he has a legit chance at and at this point, who can argue with his strategy.

    I think they are keeping their options open, Macklin would be a huge addition to the class. Young may take awhile to decide and to my knowledge hasn't even given a school list yet.

    At the NIKE camp, there are two all-star games and in the second of the day....Macklin had 18 points and 15 boards in a 122-90 loss to a team that featured Raymar Morgan.

    Macklin says he wants to decide by the end of the summer. He is interested in Ohio State, Georgetown, Wake Forest and North Carolina.

    Excellent news... b/c as much as i like young he's gonna take forever to land and would not allow us to "fall back" to morgan/tucker. This guy will decide much sooner.

    The WF board talked about grade issues, any update on that rumor?
     
  11. man, the wake forest people cried when they lost conley to us. i cant wait to see what they say/do if in fact we do get Macklin knowing we already took a prize recruit:biggrin:

    they've already started claiming they never wanted him either (once they heard OSU is rising quickly on his list).
     
  13. yeah, who would want the #14 player in the country? what a bunch of hippocrites

    Should it occur what would make this pick up remarkable in its own right is that it comes not from the Midwest - but from ACC country.

    Go get 'em Thad.

    Wake has already said that they are not interested in anyone in the top 20......:roll2:
