: : : : : : : : : : Molinar is a post grad kid. Past his 8 semesters. He had no choice but to go that route.
: : : : : : : : : Iverson Molinar had a choice. He has offers from Pepperdine, Fresno, James Madison and Georgia. He's not going to get UCLA or USC level schools. He got bad advice from someone, or people, who don't know hoops and not thinking about what's good for the kid.
: : : : : : : : lets see how this all pans out, if molinar does get a pac 12 offer from this season playing in the grind session then he didn't receive bad advice?
: : : : : : : Try to look up this �school�. Doesn�t even have a website, much less a listing on the NCAA site. Kids better hope that colleges don�t care about their academics.
: : : : : : Aren't they all going to the NBA anyways? :)
: : : : : They're not going to the nba & now they might mess up & lose their best offers.
: : : : Or they might just get better offers than they had, and if they do all you doubters will at least have to back off and give some credit... fair is fair
: : : New prep school without any 4 or 5 star players & you think that they're going to be a draw for better offers than what they're getting now? Ok
: : U answered your own question, if their not elite guys like your implying than theres nothing but room for improvement rt?? In reality the worse that can happen is they just keep present offers... but just watch, their going to beat these 4 n 5 star teams ur speaking of, then what??? Swallow your words
: Hopefully their parents all made sure this school is an accredited one. Or the classes won't count in the eyes of NCAA and then no offers are going to matter.
Oscar was NOT a starter at Bishop. He came off the bench, but he was a high impact player for them.
Do you think he would have received all the offers he did if he was still at Lynwood? Playing for a high level school like BM got him noticed to help receive those offers. Playing at a school who's games were televised and seen by millions.
I was recently told by a MAJOR D1 coach that he is called all the time, especially from 1 specific SoCal director and asked, "please make this kid an offer so we can start the ball rolling. He won't go there but just make him an offer." Which this coach will not or ever done. So makes me wonder how many of those offers Oscar or any of the other kids in his travel ball program have received are even legit, or were they to get the ball rolling?
Parents, trust the process, stop bailing your kids out every time it gets tough. What is that teaching them, when it gets hard leave or run away fro it? I am seeing SOOO many of these kids that are juniors and seniors and on their 3 or 4th school. Chill out, if I was a college coach I would look at a player like Oscar and think, hum, 3 schools in 4 years and prone to injuries, maybe not the best fit for us.
Saw another kid Sunday at Cerritos, a junior and he is now at his 3rd school in 3 years, my question is where's he gonna be next? CIF needs to crack down on this.
