I don't think this means he committed yet. It's a recruiting thing done by the basketball staff for his visit.

Oh my bad, didn't see he was on visit today. Hopefully a good sign of things to come, but yeah... standard stuff.

He's retreating a lot of stuff so not putting too much into this.

Not a good sign that this isn't a done deal. Spent 3 days on campus and still up in the air. Only one other offer and we couldn't close it on campus it looks like.

Regardless of how he liked what visit. Decision day was always going to be May 10.

Quick story............two weeks ago today I was on a non-stop Bloomington- -to-Orlando flight. In the TSA security line prior to boarding in Bloomington, HCDM was in line right behind me. He said that he was flying down there "to look at a couple of kids." It occurred to me that if I had said precisely the same thing, a law enforcement agency would have been contacted.

Well, to be fair you do run the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria's basement facility

Hey ADunk - what's the skinny, R we still in the mix???

Maybe Kolton wanted to go back home to announce on Mother's Day?

Bird fans need some good news!!!

I'm hearing ISU is the front runner but he's going to take a couple more visits.

Gotta think the asst coach turmoil, if true, would add some doubt in any recruit’s mind.

Just because something hasn’t been announced doesn’t mean there is turmoil. The team and even recruits know more than we do.

Maybe his offer isn’t one he can commit on right away (only want one of him or Greenlee?) or maybe he simply wants to make the right decision for himself and take his time.

I'm sure he does want to take his time and make the correct decision.......it's late
in the process and I'm sure there are those late schools to the party as they've not filled
out their respective rosters - therefore more visits ahead for KM.

Here's the deal - he could start for the Birds. Surely decent minutes. It's not like he's the
last link to our recruiting for goodness sakes......we've got a bunch of schollies to fill.

Angst over Asst. Coaching - please, somebody can get in the kids ear and let him know we're upgrading!
Tues vs. Friday - uh, does anyone else tire of that?
Chastain departure - like the Sarge and I get his humor.
Hein - Sienna, really? Must say I was thinking more like Milliken. Good person and he worked at it so all the best.
Hoping the Gass returns to get a schollie - if he's our 13th man that's a good roster!

UMASS, UMBC, and Rhode Island have all been in contact. I'm hearing he plans on taking more visits after the dead period. The 2019-20 Redbird team is to report to campus by June 16.
