VCU is definitely the best overall program on that top 5 list. We’ll see how it goes.
what is really curious is that he was just offered by Miss State and GA Tech and neither lands in the top 5. Very very strange

Maybe he is more interested in teams that have been on him for a while and can offer serious playing time versus teams in P5 leagues that are just hoping on the band wagon and will try to over recruit him at every chance.

As we all know, all that glitters isn't gold. Fwiw, other than their respective leagues, if I were a baller I'd go VCU over Ga Tech or Miss State every time. Ga Tech does offer stellar education and solid location.

Our offer was essentially the same time as the P5s.

Offer yes, but have we been following him closely or is he new on our radar? If we are in the same boat as Miss State, and Ga Tech with regards to interest, good for us. Not too long ago that never would have happened.

all of these offers are recent. All at the end of June. I don't know how many times we (or they) have seen him since.

It just seems like a curious situation to me.

I feel like this is our next commit. First OV, first in his graphic, and by far the best school.

From our friends on the slu board who are excited for him.

Latest News: Fussell is playing in the first session at the South (Houston) location of the NCAA College Basketball Academy this week. (7/23/19)

Scouting Report: Fussell is a versatile big man who can stretch the floor with his shooting. He has range out past the perimeter, can face up and hit shots over defenders from the mid-range and high post, and can catch and finish on the move. He passes well out of the post. He can guard multiple positions, rebounds, and blocks shots. He can handle the ball in the half court or in transition, where he moves well.
