The Blue Wall (who will ignore um currently being lead by two 3 stars).
Love it.. great attitude!
W T F!!!! How are they the first to break the story in him committing to MSU?
Haters gonna hate!
Notice we get a rising 3 star who is young for his age and missed most of summer circuits, late bloomer who is very quickly rising, vs. the gramps scenario. Another reason to love Izzo.
Schilling played for the Mac Irvin Fire with Simeon's Jabari Parker and Whitney Young's Jahlil Okafor during the club season last year.
"His upside is unbelievable," Mac Irvin Fire coach Mike Irvin said Wednesday. "Really, he's supposed to be a junior in high school. He's younger than everyone in high school. Potentially, he's got a chance to be lottery pick one day. He loves the game. What I like about him is he rebounds. At that size, he rebounds, runs the court and is a physical guy."
Findlay Prep (Nevada) senior center and Chicago native Gavin Schilling committed to Michigan State via Twitter on Wednesday.
I can't believe all the crap i had to sift through just to get to the actual news. LOL
i don't think you'll swap Derrick for Gavin. if everyone comes back, it's going to be Payne with Costello/ Gauna with Gavin either RS or seeing at most 5 minutes a game. the dark horse that everyone seems to forget about though is Kaminski who gives MSU another (supposedly) good big shooter who can stretch the floor. The top 8 guys in the rotation will most likely be;
with Kaminski/ Byrd/ and Gavin getting spot minutes whenever guys get into foul trouble.
East Lansing- A Drinking Town with a Football Problem
I wasn't talking about swapping production, just merely names on the roster for next year.
I'm a friend of Gavins. Excited that he joined MSU, I don't know much about you guys, but I know the prospect of playing for Tom Izzo was very enticing Hope to learn more about your team and for tons of success in the future!
And in case there is any confusion still:
-Freshman year played for Loyola Academy in Chicago
-Sophomore year played in Germany
-Junior year played at DeLasalle in Chicago
-Senior year playing at Findlay Prep in Las Vegas
He's also a member of Germany's U18 team.
thanks BIGMAN, and welcome. what in your opinion is his best attributes and what do you think he needs to work on once he gets on campus. it looks like he loves to rebound which is why i'm sure Izzo fell in love with him, but he looks a little on the lean side for a B1G guy.
TempleSpartan = finalfouru
most people here were just joking because a few people were confused at first. Thanks, though! And we're glad to have Gavin. I hope he enjoys Big Ten championships and Final Fours.
Welcome! MSU has the most entertaining message board. Also, your friend will be in great hands with Izzo.
When people call you Nucky, don't take it personally. It's just weird, internet dork talk.
Best attributes I'd say are shot blocking, rebounding, and overall defense, and attitude. He's got a lot of tools, it just hasn't been put together yet. I'd say part of that is from him moving around all the time and never being able to fully settle in somewhere. He'll be spending his summer working with the coaches and not joining the German NT. Should help him a ton.
Any idea when he plans to move to East Lansing?
WTF? I'm just curious if he'll get a chance to work with the coaches and play in the summer leagues.
Sorry for such a late reply. I'm not sure exactly when, I think Early-Mid June but the dates aren't set yet.
Wait a second...
"B1G"MAN implies Big Ten ties, yet you claim not to know much about the Spartans...
What up, Nucky?
Welcome - and if he is that young a redshirt would not hurt.
