Default 6-6 Leroy Fludd

6-6 Leroy Fludd of Believe Prep in Rock Hill will be taking an official visit to USC next month and is interested in seeing what the Gamecocks have to offer. He and his teammate, 6-3 Shaddell Millinghaus, are both Gamecock targets. "They need a little more help in certain areas," said Fludd who talks regularly with Gamecock coaches Frank Martin and Brad Underwood. "I can see myself playing at that type of level. I like the way they coach and the coaching staff is really close." Fludd and Millinghaus visited USC unofficially for the Ole Miss game. Millinghaus' brother is a freshman guard at Ole Miss. Fludd said he is undecided about other visits and doesn't have a favorite. He won't make a decision until after his season. He also has offers from Utah, Colorado State and Rutgers where he once was committed

I think I would like to see us sign both of those guys. From what I've read, both are tough.

Not very big/impressive offer lists. I understand, we're not in a position to really be picky though.

Default Re: 6-6 Leroy Fludd

ESPN said of Millinghaus: "Millinghaus is a powerful swingman who can physically bully most players at his age and position. He is at his best when able to push the ball out in front of him in the open floor because he attacks the rim like a dump truck running down hill."

And Fludd's nickname is "Truck". Sounds to me like the type of guys Martin is looking for.

That would both give us some needed size in the backcourt.
And I like the physicality they both are rumored to play wit.

Unless my math is wrong (never was a strong suit with me), someone is going to have to hit the road if we bring anyone else in. Is that correct and if so, who goes ?

Correct. But I don't know who. Likely someone(s) from the upper classes.

This was an article from last year...

The Truck is making a pit-stop.

Citing a desire to grow both physically and academically, Boys & Girls senior basketball player Leroy (Truck) Fludd will attend a prep school in the fall, putting off his college decision for now, his father, Leroy Fludd Jr., told the Daily News on Sunday.

While Fludd has a wealth of interest from high-major Division I schools, such as Rutgers, St. John’s, South Carolina and Providence, among others, the prudent decision for him is to do a post-graduate year before he commits to college, his father said.
The 6-5 forward had a monster year, leading the Kangaroos to both a city title and the program's first state championship while increasing his profile as one of the top players in the city
. But he's still just 17 and has room to mature, his father said.


“He prefers to take this route rather than go to a university right now,” said Fludd, Jr., a Lincoln graduate who played with current Lincoln coach Dwayne (Tiny) Morton at the Coney Island school in the late 80s. “There are a lot of people who go to universities and get lost on the bench for whatever reason. You have to be both mentally and physically ready to be able to play at that level. He knows that. That’s why we’re going to prep school first to make sure he’s ready for what's to come on the next level.”

The 17-year-old Fludd - who is likely to be among the five nominees for Player of the Year when the Daily News publishes its annual list of all-stars on Monday - plans to visit prep schools during the next few weeks, though his dad declined to mention which schools they will visit. Fludd's father also said his decision to attend prep school was based purely on a desire to polish off a few rough edges and has nothing to do with grades. Fludd already took the SATs and is awaiting the results.

“He has the grades now to attend a four-year school,” his dad said. “He’s good. I’m not even worried about that. He just has to take care of business and raise his average while he’s in prep school. He’s sitting on a 74-75 average now. I’m trying to get him to get that average to 84-85 where major universities will look at him and know that he’s taking care of his books.”

Fludd made the decision to attend prep school early in the season but never announced it publicly.

“He told me, 'This is high school. I’m playing against some of the best high school players but I know once I play against top level college kids, I don’t think I’m ready for it,'” his father said. “We both agreed that what’s the sense of going to a college if you’re not going to be able to play the way you want to? Now, we have another year to polish his game and hit the books in the classroom. This is the best thing for him to do.”

Having technical issues with transcripts from his high school......same for Millinghaus (Believe Prep in Rock Hill). If those can be cleared up, expect him to commit to us.....per TBS. Good chance we're getting both.
