    SCOUT PREM 8 FEB 05

    Conley says Wake Forest is his leader. Conley does however, have his list down to five main schools: Wake Forest, Illinois, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Arkansas.

    “We both like Wake Forest and Ohio State. I know I want to play with him and he wants to play with me.” (Daequan Cook)

    Losing Cook to WF would hurt really really bad.

    It appears as though Conley (rated the #6 PG by Rivals) is Wake's prime target at PG, but the #1 PG in the country by Rivals, DJ Augustin, the #2 PG in the country by Rivals, Tywon Lawson, and the #8 PG in the country by Rivals, Javaris Crittenton, also list HIGH interest in Wake. DJ is not listed as having any offers at this point (his coach says it is understood that all his favorites either have verbally offered or will offer), and Javaris does not have a Wake offer at this point. UNC seems very interested in Augustin and Conley, and GT is hard after Tywon, Javaris, and Will Walker, the #20 PG by Rivals.

    Should be interesting to see how this all plays out. At least at OSU, Conley knows that there is no other major PG targets that we are going after. Our coaches have supposedly been to see Walker play, although he favors GT, and Tory Jackson seems to like scUM an awful lot. That really only leaves Conley as the only true-PG we are recruiting. That has to count for something...

    From the Arkansas site...Arkansas is heavily recruiting three point guards. Marcus Larence, Willie Kemp, and Mike Conley, Jr. All three have offers from the Hawgs. The article concedes that Wake is Conley's current leader, but that Arkansas, Illinois, and OSU are still in pursuit.

    Per Illinois site......Conley has narrowed his choices down to Wake Forest, Illinois and tOSU, with Wake in the lead. Says he will visit all three schools again before making a decision.

    By Kyle Lamb of Bucknuts...Conley and Oden did not make it over for yesterday's upset, but Conley watched it on TV. He was glad to see the Bucks win. Matta saw him and Oden play on Friday. He likes the way the guards play in Matta's offense. Wake still leads.
     
  11. Ok here is how I see it. If we can get D. Cook to make a decision sometime early over the summer, and then IU cans Davis. Then Conley and Oden want to play together and would like to play with D. Cook so they all end up at tOSU and we become a top 10 team very fast.

    I can dream can't I.

    Haha, I'll dream with ya! However, it certainly seems that Matta has all the cards of the deck in his hands right now. He gave us more than what we could have hoped for this season, has us in on plenty of top prospects for both the '06 and '07 classes and has a commitment in the '08 class. Now it just depends on how he plays these cards. Certainly winning the B10 tourney this year can only make things 10x better.
