Didnt JC list possible NBA draft?  That was my impression.
I realize players make nice coin playing overseas.

Didn't realize Hicks was hurt.
Just meant that if we spend 2 years of scholarship to get 1 year of playing time, then the kid decides to bolt as a grad transfer.  If that happened I find they bush league.

JC  listed that as possible but he is well aware how hard it is and the likely scenario is overseas. I donít think it is bush league of Hicks leaves because he got hurt.  Not his choice and he played no roll in his red shirting.

Can agree to disagree but I'll bet if you are the coach and you invest 2 years in a guy and get one years production of a guy (injury or not) and then bolts via the grad transfer rule you would be a bit ticked.

Absolutely. I’m definitely with you on this one.

Jordan Gaitley, son of Fordham Women's Basketball Coach Gaitley, is a Freshman on the Richmond Spiders basketball team.  He was 2017 League MVP of New York's Catholic High Schools Athletic Association (CHSAA) A Division
Averaged 20.5 points per game as a senior ... led team to CHSAA A Divisional Final
Class A first-team All-State selection.
Coach Gaitley had previously coached at Richmond, so there was that connection, but how come there was zero talk about the possibility of Jordan Gaitley playing for the Men's Basketball Rams?  We have an International field for recruiting, which is good; so is looking just 300 yards to the west of the RHG for a potential prospect.

He is a walk on. Awkward to coach your colleagues son.

The other way is who cares?   He got 0 DI scholarship offers. Maybe he wanted to go away to school.  Maybe we had our roster of walk ons filled. There a thousand reasons he could have had and we could have had for him to be at Richmond. Good luck to him in Richmond.

Fordham Prep, interestingly, has not been a significant feeder of talent to the Rams for many decades. George Zambetti was the last Prep grad, I believe, to be really impactful. That's a long time ago. Joe McGowan, son of Dean Jay McGowan, became a starter down the homestretch of his senior year, which was Fordham's last NCAA appearance. Khalid Robinson was a productive walk-on. I think that's it.

My freshman year, long, long ago, we had a 5-man freshman recruiting class and a kid from Fordham Prep, who was not on scholarship, really shone on the Freshman Team. We elected not to invest a schollie in him, so he transferred to Holy Cross and had a very successful career there.

Point being, we really don't have "feeder schools" for the hoops program. We get 'em from all over.

Gaitley was mentioned here at the time. i believe he is a walk on at Richmond.  Would he get a free ride at Fordham due to his mom being a contract employee?  Big nut to pay at Richmond!  BTW, nobody cares.

I donít understand why any Fordham fan cares why Gaitly went to Richmond. This thread is about who we are recruiting not why a kid walked on elsewhere. It is irrelevant.  My suggestion if you care ask Gaitley she seems pretty forthcoming.

Youse guys missed the point completely.  Which was whether there was any discussion on this Board whether he might be a player who could help us, even as a walk-on as his brother was.

You said there was zero talk, but there actually was some talk about him last year. txram brought him up and there was some discussion about him. Your comment about 300 yards away also implied that we never took a look at him. I do not know if we looked at him or not, so I am not going to assume anything one way or the other.

Right.  I missed the discussion on him at the time. But that's different from others assuming that I'm arguing that he should've been a recruit.

That is exactly the way your first post read and quite frankly what you meant. Why bring it up if you donít want to say he should be a recruit?   You say we recruit over seas but not 300 yards away.  You quote his stats as if we missed out on this great scorer. Come on.

I brought it up because it was publicly mentioned by Coach Gaitley and NBA Commissioner Adam Silver mentioned her other son at the Tip-OFF Dinner on Monday.  Next time you see me at a game, I'd appreciate it if you can have a conversation with me.

Right and you wanted to know why he was not recruited here. I am not wasting my time with talking about a kid who walked on at Richmond or why you posted about him. We will talk about the team and have a beer.

I mentioned this early in Jordan's senior year and wondered the same.  He was a late signee at Richmond.

I believe it has been pointed out that he is a walk-on. Not a signee.

I wonder if he will get a scholarship in a few years and also wonder how the Richmond board will react to it.   Evil

How about starting a thread recapping the Tip-Off Dinner?
