Joining Jordan. Go tigers point 47 joins us now he's been so kind when his time over this a penny mania has situation. He is on the hook with a us now what's up John. My ability to carry out live in I'm living my best to be honest it can't complain. Tell me. A back. It. David is it wings get our wing hit her body's he said properly. Dated when jet and talent. Then he would say it could have been courts are forward Luke Adam blew up the last month equated goals to be crap which can hit it on North Carolina after. I'll don't call I really nah he did as much interest come out at school. Because you're playing Nebraska which cost eight amount out but he also native American which is also very hoping to Coke entered you don't eat. Screaming Niedermayer and bring division one basketball and it was very good high school ever frequently game and then what bowl to be crap or averaged only about when people Cha and upper income three. I'd attempts green. Public found out about it on. Did you just say 75%. From three on five attempts per game. Yeah I can't get it just practicing that's good that's an Afghan situation. I've heard that he's been burned up slightly even quicker team loaded. And hey you circuit and they shut it down I'd gained ecology school on about it like this and thanks so many people and on and I mean really in doubt all military men credit or all. Wichita State and it a little early in the fact that members and I'd memories. They're they're. People very familiar with the program that people were out in the current state and there are no sneakers relationship there they were very familiar and they brought equipment and curb business over the weekend and Mike Miller penny older Matlock although they. That made him so comfortable on I think they got it he could put seven insured but they probable that the U that we look at it. So very similar to DeVon walker. It's embarrassing. Very similar to Devin locker. Nine and ninety's but 67 and can shoot the leather off the ball is. Is solid now obviously it transitional translate to a different level applying prep schooler playing Nebraska high school basketball. Are the expectations that he gets significant minutes are the expectations hey come and get adjusted to the speed of this odd considering where you have been playing and will work with you. You know like every side and here's my point every sign me is not going to be on my guys the greatest thing ever he's gonna had played 32 minutes and score. Eighteen to 22 points and he's just gonna light it up every single night he had that you had that you would never be beaten. But you need guys they can play significant roles it sounds like he can play the role of a spot up shooter. That's what we want you talked about it. Kind of in an eighty year bill though we can go out. They're going to play broke out of the company like Joost a rocket and unemployed up and down. Up down up down up down there and shingle out of storage and something they really wanted to do. But that was the worst teams in the nation can very easily shot 31% of the team. Only had one or two people shoot the ball 30% Jeremiah are on guard not one of the child or two course. And now they've gone out and got gut our air and and Dayton Hardaway who. Make plays Kirk didn't not that they can. You hear the wind yeah. The good guys that banned right away anything you until like I think you need to do you into the tunnel to get stronger. Is Al quite because Andy and not having the ball every single connection up and down for that'll be an adjustment. Foreman is still a teammate but he's absolutely bad can come in quite cold and quicker now that I'm calling all we'll and we saw a guy like okay. When you need it or I get Avery what some of and consistent with how windy it is very he would go one game look at it. But since then they go oh for nick and so I. It is an adjustment but I think it is going to be god could you record not gonna court when he went beginning. He's going to be one of those guys that they can spied in the world that the desperately. Let me ask you this as we tackle Jonas Jordan from my go tigers went 47 David when jet is the last. Penny Hardaway is roster fills. It looks like he's a lefty to aim looks up by has pictures he is a left handed shooter which I don't know how you guys think. Man when you watch a lefty that's got a stroke it just looks even better. Then you know Mike Miller's maybe get the purest right handed stroke I've seen other than like staff Curry's and there are obviously. But Mike Miller's jump shot is exactly what a textbook would tell you to do but lefties can even be a little off. And yet the ball seems to flowed out of there so haven't a lefty never hurts either because it can open up the difference out of the floor. Absolutely and you got that unimportant to you got all he got they all are you are huge quake I think that. The reason he didn't all Circuit Court meanwhile you know bring life. I think we're sort of hear about it all eyeing. He reclassified from seventeen to 28 included in this school year and in. And I'd encourage more concern so people really weren't sure you are going to hear ultra sleek and oh the crack. And then he got god is great right got everything under control and but it probably truly earned a B rated. And he doubted our people together and that thing. So I've talked several college coaches and boy that hit the top 150 top hundred choir they legitimately people want it. A lot of people want them he had ballot and that's it you'd waited to reach that you weren't so ready for the crops as we go Burks. I think he knew more oval school collegiate. So are we get this deal. I don't Sam there's a picture of him you global. David when jet you look at the images all you gotta do is go about three rows down four rows down. And there's David when jet and Tim mile or Tim miles down on the side. They. Of a Nebraska back a football game so Nebraska certainly was. It was certainly looked in looking like they wanted to take Iran at this how much am I don't know if you've had a chance to talk to people and no I'm. But it is rare than native Americans. Moniker is it something he embraces is it something that he doesn't want there had to be looked at that way because let's be honest Memphis is. A city based school. A school that is always kind of had that inner city kind of toughness. You know you're not as. As scary Perry said you generally don't go get five star prospects from two parent homes become play at Memphis it just doesn't happen you get a tougher more street wise kid basically. No matter and I just basic color of skin but you know not no matter what they look like. Native Americans. Tended sometimes want to have that ship that pay. Everybody says we can't do this has he liked so again the question is has he embraced it have you heard him talk about it or is it just some say it is what it is and I'm gonna go out and shoot a basketball. 22 feet from where I stand in the basket that's ten feet high and whether Rahm native American and white blacker purple it's gonna look the same because I'm a good shooter. Added an equally. Fully embraced her and idea he's going to be one of the pork out pretty airport. Native Americans playing a meter or about ought thinkers want to which Chelsea won Texas and that and I wanna make it to. Think you don't have full integration is a big deal and it's a big deal for him in. I mean these I don't wanna do all right let me quote it increases energy corporation the people I mean it. All about that and I don't make it a little bit and grow our money on that report and I know them a little little contributed to innocent. I've currently got it. Chip on the shoulder Curtin got pink ones complaining want to win it and the little illegal under rain at all so wall. I really think that we're gonna grow up and get. Among tell you what. I always liked kids that have a little bit of an edge a little bit of a chip on their shoulder because either people said they can't do or that they point out one thing. And big guys that embrace it rather than might try to shy away from it. I love it because it shows that a lot. And that kind of confidence does matter and I think the fact that you said he took that extra year maybe grow he's grown up a little bit it's a little bit different and just. Getting your standard eighteen year old freshman he's been out at a prep school essentially on his own. Do Harris Ed before. Other kids that would be considered freshman so sounds like you're gonna get Mikey do you think it people have said they think he's top 100 up on fifty and that's the case. There's another one and there were none coming before except for one that was borderline top 100 you know. And I'm Myron and actually you can bring you the kind of fell. Outlook the top 100 you're restore rank one seeking cheap now so that last step when the had anybody to decide how well each candidate. Eight I don't want to pile on but that's the situation. Everybody says that I don't think you are when your being honest as I think it shows in granted. It is a different animal when you're talking about Penny Hardaway and Mike Miller walking into a kid's living room. Then what Tommy had on the staff was Saul Smith and enjoy us busy don't I'm not not consult or Joseph. It's also affected penny immediately was hitting the recruiting trail and has done this in less than two months. Where Tubby Smith had two years and some that somebody issues a roster clearly not his fault. Let's got to put timing you gotta gotta count Amy can't be a real estate agent. And think homes are just gonna fall on your lap to sell you've got to go out and try to get them same thing to me with a basketball coach. Players are not just going to fall into your lap just because you are who you are. In the American athletic conference maybe they want a big twelve maybe they want a Big Ten. Not here you gotta go make the effort first and now I think again that's the one thing I've only been critical on. Is the seemingly not understanding. That you may not wanna play the game but I understand there is a game being played and you better somehow find a way to have your name involved in that game albeit as one who's not playing yet. But somewhere where you can go you don't wanna play the game of catch my drift. And it just I mean they're doing it whit. Al forced out in a lot won't go exports that position it well and at all Morse a coaching spot itself. And the director pat operation brought me now are you doing his job of them heard the encode into irked about operations. Job. But look they're the only exit on the operations outer banks with being at number doubt in the white boy. Or don't adopt. So it is and everybody wore my lower court Penny Hardaway solutions has been incredible I mean kudos all of pinning it add. Any kind of didn't do you wanna experienced opponent in those who were and it would be great army. And right now will like that it is getting better and better for people I know. They need to do work and what they need do to get better and it didn't seem like that could just couldn't. That they're ignorant American basketball program at them better treatment at all. Appreciate the time John and I agreed with the and it is taken in a little bite at the grizzlies to we're hearing as going and think imminent it's the old gray is tickets and gulf of tiger tickets and so. The grizzard trying to allow market in a certain way but I am I'm hopeful it. Penny we'll have it wrong on the grizzlies will get it back Rolen and we will be back to be in hoop city once again very soon. Our extranet.
