3 players from the same team...(Bivens, N'diaye, and Petion). Have we ever done that before?

It would be great if they wanted to play college ball together. Maybe offering all three will give us an edge on other schools. Can't believe any other schools have done that yet.

Wichita State offered Ndiaye yesterday, and visited with Petion while there. Picture on twitter of ggg with both of them.

The interesting thing about this "package deal" is that all of these players seem really good and could contribute. Like on the Slack-Richardson level rather than the David-Hein deal.

I don’t remember Slack ever making a step-back three.

Isn't Marvin the one in the picture with Ndiaye?

If so, either Petion is taller than 6'6 or Ndiaye is not 6'10. They look to be only about 2 inches apart.

Mar$hall is apparently 6'2, which would put Marvens around 6'5, and Abdou around 6'8. That's good especially considering his reported 7'2 wingspan.

He will be announcing his decision on Nov. 8.

Offers per VC: Illinois State, U Albany, LA Tech, and McNeese State.

He has a twitter photo with all of the schools that, I assume, have expressed interest. Ole Miss, St. Bonnie, Georgia Tech, Kansas State, Richmond, Dayton, Tulsa, FAU, Wichita State, and FIU among others.

Both Bivens and Petion are listed as 2 guards. Payton (the Bloomington kid) is a 3/4. Payton's recruitment has been pretty quite as of late. He may not commit until the spring signing period, and still hold out for his bigger offer.

Yeah, I see the SG by his name but at 6'3" he very well could be a PG.

I'm not sure height is relevant to be a PG. 5''1, 6'4, 7'0 all could be PG's with the right handles and skill sets. Milik is essentially a 6'6 PG at this level.
