I've been hoping that someone would give an update on our 2011 recruits for awhile so I decided to become proactive and do some research on my own. What little I have found may be old news however maybe some of you closer to the little apple may have a insiders word or two you can add.
Adrian Diaz- He is 7' 205 lbs. That is skinny. Picture this, Henriquez-Roberts is 7' 245 lbs. 40lbs heavier than Diaz. There isn't much news about him and his current season however supposedly this kid runs the floor well and has good post moves. Several writers are considering him a for sure red shirt to give him time to bulk up.
Thomas Gipson- Thomas is the only recruit I found any actual video evidence of his talent. I'm stoked about this kid. He is known by his team as "the beast" for a reason. This kid is strong and knows how to take the ball to the rim. Check out the link and see why. http://www.basketballelite.com/index.php/basketball-recruiting/7-questions-with-thomas-gipson/
Angel Rodriguez- Once again I didn't find out much except that he is leading his Dr. Krop High School team that is ranked #1 in the state of Florida and #6 in the USA Today National rankings. This is for 6A boys so it's a legit accomplishment.
Remember, with Kelly and Pullen gone after this year we need some immediate impact players. From what I've seen and read, we may have some. Please add to this in the comment section as there are many of you that are more resourceful than I. EMAW
