    Mohamed Bamba's brother says the Texas 5-star freshman accepted cash and gifts

    In a Facebook video, the brother of the No. 2 recruit in the nation makes some serious accusations

    The older brother of Texas incoming freshman Mohamed Bamba, the nation's No. 2 recruit in the Class of 2017, posted a video on Facebook on Wednesday saying he told the NCAA the five-star prospect accepted cash and gifts from a financial adviser who doubles as a mentor.

    "He's not going to play this year in the NCAA because I already reported him to the NCAA -- and I'm already going to meet with the NCAA," said Ibrahim Johnson, Bamba's brother. "He's not going to play this year. ... I exposed that kid."

    Entire article:

    You don't see a guy turn in his brother to the NCAA very often.

    Looks like Holtmann has started a trend across basketball with Jallow and his recruitment of Ayala. I saw Race Thompson, a top-100 player in the class of 2018 is coming in to Indiana as a 17, and there is now a lot of talk about Marvin Bagley (#1 class of 2018) coming in to Duke as a 2017. All of this right in the middle of the summer. Stuff happening quickly! Gets some guys to the NBA quickly, plus helps out coaches (like Holtmann, Miller, and K who has done it before) who come into situations needing some immediate help.

    Oh my. Jealousy is a stinky cologne.

    Greer Love either...

    -Has a legit pre-existing relationship with the kid.

    -Played the long game to perfection.

    -Covered his tracks beautifully.

    Either way, I don't see much coming from this story other than a family member who bought stock in haterade.

    Just a slight difference.

    That's just good mentoring, right there.

    Georgetown's OOC schedule makes the ones we've complained about recently look powerful.
