Derrick Jones was, as Todd Simon said, "a basketball athlete."  In other words, he could use his athleticism to positively impact a game.  We'll see if this guy is a basketball athlete.

Seeing USU doesn't excite me as much as seeing WVA & TCU obviously 

But if UNLV is beating out the average MWC program, then I hold my enthusiasm

Here is a nice write up on Anthony Smith.

" On the court, "Anthony has great ability and potential with no ceiling," Rick said. "He's strong and can jump out of the gym, one of the greatest athletes I've ever seen. He has a high motor and plays hard, something which really excites the college coaches who have watched him." That being West Virginia, Texas Christian, UNLV, Utah State and a number of others in pursuit"

DeShawn Mitchell was arguably the best athlete that Lon Kruger recruited, and he was terrible.

We won't really get a feel for Anthony until he gets into conference play next year.  Just like Mooring was a scoring machine in JC and then came into the MWC jacking 3's and being a turnover machine but, he has developed to be one of the guys you now feel good about having on the floor.  We also don't know if this guy can play defense.  But, I feel like I can trust MM more than I could ever trust the riceball to develop players.

he didn't play high school basketball..only a little AAU, but blew up at Feather River. We'll see, but must be decent to have the interest he did. might end up being a steal.

Armon Gilliam was similar - he was a wrestler and didn't play HS ball until his senior year (if I recall) and then got noticed at JC - Not saying this kid is another Gilliam!

While your point about player development is true, I'm still hoping Menzies lands a big fish. This looks like the kind of kid he'd get to NMSU. Seems extremely meh.

Therein lies the difference..........Rice got all the high ranked guys but couldn't do anything with them........Menzies seems to be a "COACH" who can perhaps get the most out of players.

Rice with 4 & 5 star players was getting beat regularly by MWC teams made up of 2 & 3 star recruits..............but if Menzies can land some 4 & 5 star recruits, the upside could be phenomenal if his ability to coach kids up is a reality

Yeah Armon Gilliams don't walk through the door every day, lol. I walked to the parking lot with him one day right after he signed his NBA contract, he hopped into a cute sporty white  Mercedes 5? I think it was a 5..

We won't know what we got until mid next season.  It's the same with Australian kid that signed.  Another unknown.  These guys may never amount to much but, what if we get back on track with winning will you still be ok?  Or, are you going to base our future on the type of recruits we get?  I'm all for the big fish but, they got damn better be some working fish and not guys that show up when they want.
