Well, this is good news from an impartial nationally known sports reporter. Hope Gafford really turns a lot of the NBA guys heads while he is there and it looks like that's what's happening.

Sounds like Gafford is a force among his peers. This is a big plus for the Hogs.

Beard was one of the LR kids we recruited that actually came here to play instead of going to a rival. Somehow made it all 4 years. Wish him well in whatever he does.

Same here, man.

I believe the kid gave it all he had. Nobody knows how hard that kid worked. For people to just continue to bash him long after he's gone, it just doesn't make any sense.

Good things being heard about Gafford from national media and NBA execs.

http://www.wholehogsports.com/news/2018/aug/20/gafford-goes-against-game-s-best-201808/

Jeff Goodman, a college basketball analyst for the Stadium website who previously worked for ESPN, had a tweet praising Gafford's play in Los Angeles.
"One NBA exec on Arkansas big man Daniel Gafford from the Nike Skills Academy: 'He was awesome. Monster on the glass. Both ends,' " Goodman tweeted. " 'Was finishing & dunking everything. Runs the floor well, switched onto the guards and did a good job of defending. Really affected shots in the paint.' "

In the above linked article, I was surprised to read Coach A as saying that Desi Sills was one of the better scoring guards we have coming in. He listed Desi along with Keyshawn, Isaiah, Mason and Reggie as incoming guys he thinks can score and take some of the pressure off of Daniel inside.

A surprising but pleasant nugget of info indeed about a guy most fans have had at the bottom of their lists of potential contributors to the team this year. Should make for some good competition at the guard spots.

Desi Sills...I just like this kid's name! He has an All-SEC name. Gonna be awesome to see him develop an All-SEC game. Desi Can GO.

MSU and LSU are way overrated here. I expect us to be in the top 8 this year, maybe higher, and contending for an at large bid in the NCAAT.

MSU and LSU are shelling out enough bucks under the table that they can't be overrated.

LSU is blowing it out the water in recruiting. A school that's not known for basketball is suddenly getting multiple top 25 recruits.

Johnny Jones signed Ben Simmons, Jarell Martin, Jordan Mickey, Antonio Blakeney and Brandon Sampson. Simmons, Martin and Blakeney were 5-stars, Mickey was just outside the top 25 and Sampson was just outside the top 50. So, not exactly a complete surprise to see this at LSU because the previous coach got multiple players of this caliber.

LSU has a history of securing top talent.  Getting that to translate on the floor has been the issue.

Sure. But that's baked into my point that LSU has been doing this longer than Will Wade's brief time there. I mean, they signed Ben Simmons. Of course.

Been sayin it for a while, Gabe has been able to play on the wing for a while. I think that versatility will only help us.

I give Gabe a lot of credit.  he is developing more than i thought that he would. I hope that he continues to get better.  When we first offered i thought it might have been a wasted schollie..  but, hopefully he can bring this type of practice to a game.

Those guys have been dirty a very long time.  Especially auburn.  When they took ole whats his face as their coach, you knew they would be on the take.   And, as charles barkley said... " if you aint cheatin' you aint trying'   Well, they are trying a LOT at the 3 schools mentioned.    MSU sure is trying hard as well.  I mean, i dont know anyway they get players to go there if they DIDNT pay them to go there.  haha

Always liked his attitude and hustle in games.  Has a nice edge to him, a little grit.  You could see the potential last year and the downsides such as turnovers or fouls seemed to be more based on inexperience and still being a bit raw.  Nice to see him working on those weaknesses.  Love him as a disruptor, a guy that is going to get in there and just mess up the other teams rhythm and flow.

Gabe needed a taste of live action last year and that will help him as he prepares for a substantial role this year because he is one of only 3 guys, Gafford and Bailey being the other two, who have played a single minute of SEC basketball.

Don't see how Mike could have done that. Too much unreliability at the 4 last season, which is why Gabe was forced into the action playing 10 or more minutes 4 times in SEC play. I do, however, still maintain that Trey Thompson should have been redshirted and, best case, we have a 5th-year big to back up Gafford this season and worst case, Trey just decides not to return for his 5th year (grad transfer or just done with bball).

He can play 2-3 spots on the floor and it would be huge for him to break out this year. I saw some things I liked about him last season and with his size and ballhandling, he could make a big impact this time around.

However, still no Jordan Phillips sightings in any of these videos.  It's gotta be him that the guy seen on crutches.  I could make out everyone else but him in that video.
