Wow! How-bout that 2009 Class!

Posted on: October 2, 2008 12:58 am

Greetings Aztec Cronies,

I’m not sure if it's serendipity or Fisher’s recruiting gravitas; whatever it may be the class of 2009 is amalgamating into a formidable force. Eric Lawton (ESPN Scouting Score: 87); Chase Tapley (85) and Alec Williams (80) are leading the way in forming a team that has SDSU fans (that’s fan by the way, and that fan is me) thinking top 25 before the season starts; that’s right a team that enters the basketball season as a top 25 prospect. Oh, how silly of me to overlook another player heading into Aztec-ville: Brian Carlwell the 6-11, 265 lb center who is transferring from Illinois. A true center that SDSU Basketball hasn’t seen, well, ever under the Fisher monarch!  Fisher has recruited speed; perimeter shooting and size in the paint. Hyperbole aside, this team chemistry looks good. Let’s hope that it finally culminates into an NCAA tournament win, or a series of wins that has us looking at a Sweet 16 appearance.

What say you?

I believe you mean Jamal Franklin not Gary Franklin. In any event, he is looking at both USD and SDSU. It's of paramount importance that USD avoids recruiting him; SDSU would serve him better.
