I gladly answer that. My mother was one of the first women professors at George Mason back. She taught there and was the head of the Spanish department; she actually helped my high school Spanish teacher get his doctorate. It is point of pride for me. Anyway my mother is still alive and 98. But her memory is going fast, she is having a hard time recognizing any more..it's sucks to say the least. I love my mother. Even though I am married and love my wife, my mother is still the center of my being.

I grew up on that campus when it was still all trees. Being a mason for me now in my older years is more about a feeling a connection for who my mother was rather she is now

I am trying a find a way to a stay connected to her before she does not recognize me anymore.
Been there, missed out on job opportunities trying to move closer so I could take better care of my mom. You have some good priorities. I appreciate everything you were trying to do, though as someone else said it has been a bit of a shot gun approach. You have often brought things to our attention no one else did. Take good care of your mom, and post when you can.

Seeem
Seems like he still likes VCU a lot. Let's hope that doesn't change! 🤞
There is no question that Silas, Jr. likes VCU a great deal. He really blew-up at the NBPA Top 100 camp which makes our task in terms of inking him more difficult. We are fortunate in that our staff got on him early and often which puts us in a good position down the stretch. After the camp he stated that he wants to visit Tennessee. That's a situation similar to Freddie. He also has stated that his dream school is UNC and that he would covet an offer. He stated that an offer would not necessarily end his recruitment but that he followed them closely growing-up and would like to receive an offer.

Aside from this article which happen to come up on my Google feed, I am out of the recruit following business.

I just had to take a peek at the site and see your encouragement.

It worked.

I'll do it. But you guys have to keep me in check, my addiction to this stuff gets outta control, i could spend hours doing this. if you see me posting too much. Tell me to knock it off which will trigger me to take a break...

I just opened up my Twitter account now. Suffice it say, there's been a ton of activity beside demary and dillione. Keep an eye on the 2023 thread in the next 5 minutes.

On a related topic, I understand am all in with hating ODU basketball, as well as UVA and UR. I don't understand the animus that others express toward GMU. The school has some similarities to VCU, they've been with us in the CAA and A10. Their band always competed well with us. They brought a Final four to the CAA. I've thought we had a friendly competition with them and we've certainly had our share of wins against them, including some big wins that put us in the NCAA tourney. Am I missing something?

Friendly? Have you been to the away games? 😂

I still can hear the F*** you VCU chants echoing the arena from the Valentine Day game where we loss on a buzzer beater.

Okay, so this is what I meant dude...this has nothing to do with VCU and there is no mention of Silas. Should you really be posting this here man? In case it wasn't obvious, the answer is no.
Actually. It has everything to do with Silas dude...GG jackson is one of top 2 or 3 players in the class of '23. He was the crown jewel of their recruiting class.

Theew are 2 players UNC is going at hard right now. Silas Demary and Jamie Kaiser. If Silas is a really big fan of UNC as he says then that most definitely may effect our staff's chances are acquiring his services.

This is a an unexpected development worth watching.

From my understanding, UNC hasn't offered Silas tho and he just said he wants to be offered by them. In fact, a recent UNC recruiting blog (July 9th) has quoted Silas saying he hasn't even heard from UNC....but according to you, UNC is recruiting them hard?

You keep bypassing GG jackson. Jackson knows demary and dillione; they all played each other over the last several years and keeps tabs in each other's recruiting.

Now the GG is gone. NC has a spot to fill. NC has been in heavy with Demary and Kaiser because they are amongst high rising prosects in this year's summer circuit.

They have been in contact with him several times. If blue bloods are monitoring and have been on contact with a prospect this far into the aau circuit then they watch them in person at peach jam or other big tournaments before pulling the trigger.

Silas just made the all-star team at NBPA at top 100 camp before all the NBA front office personnel, scouts and big time power 5's. He's on the radar. UNC has been calling him

If he continues to show out in July, don't be surprised if UNC offers to fill that slot. Like i said, it's a development to watch for.
