Weird. One news source. No tweets about it. Just as quiet as the offer. He seems like a Vermont-type kid though.

Re: Vermont HS BBall prospect discussion

good news if true - have to believe it is and bpf will have more detail on it soon.
my guess is walkon and redshirt as people been saying would do a lot of benefit and helps for depth down road.
someone I work with has daugther on Rice girls team said he saw the Mt Anthony game as well. I ask about Parker of course not much to judge on play since he get in the fouls trouble but said kid is skinny has long arms though and can get up there to block but that all he could tell. Hopefully he come back to Patrick and play a game so those of us closeby can see - even if it might be hes tall and that just about all.

It's all over the Rice Twitter feed today, so I'd say it's a definite. Not sure about the specifics, though.

Here's some clarity: He joins "as a walk-on and likely redshirt before he is expected to gain a scholarship spot."

Great add!, I hope he takes advantage of a red shirt year. There are rumors (don't jump down my throat) of Kendrick coming to UVM. i see he's on their interest for 2017 on the verbal commits page as well.

That would be very interesting- he'd be a real match-up problem on offense in the AE.

if Kendrick is using this year and his prep year next year to work on his defense and learning that he will not enter college likely right away and be the top hombre I think it will be fine. I see it his recruitment not taken off at VT academy this year but we shall see what summer ball brings. At AE level he can be good player but he would be 2-3-4 tweener type and at UVM you must defend (now more than ever please!) and at Rice he did not show he could do that so this is where his prep ball is important and hopeful humbling experience

There's some really talented 2016 kids on Vermont Academy- Bruce Brown (Miami) and Tyrique Jones (Xavier) on his team plus Christian David in 2017 that he really kind of has to defer to, but apart from that I think he has the most potential on the rest of that team. Their PG committed to Winthrop is a nice player too, forgot him.

So, his role is a bit limited this year but he's becoming more of a key guy as season has gone on I think. I think in the AE he could be a 3/4- anywhere else in D1 he'd be a 3.

Things I noticed when I saw him play live; he needs to rebound and play hard all the time- get more active and get involved more. I will say he was smart offensively though, didn't force things and took good shots when the shot was there. He has very nice range inside the 3pt line/elbows.

Re: Vermont HS BBall prospect discussion

yeah i'm just saying he gotta work on those things to get more college ready and that is a good thing that he has this year and next year to get ready and if he can do that and want to fit in to what UVM in 2018 is doing well that is great.

I've heard some chatter alluding to this too.

I'm all in on the Shungu/Gray wagon! How exciting would that be to get these two back on the same team?!!

C'mon baby!
