Re: Frease Commits to X!!

I have been watching TV all night. This was the first site I checked when I just logged on. So I just found out A-10 Fans. WOO HOO!!!!

Frease is the biggest recruit that we have ever bagged in the history of the program on paper. That Scout site rated him #4 at his position in the country. He is a 7 foot center. We have never had a recruit like this.

We have also been recruiting a kid from Cincy, Yancy Gates. His interest level was high but as his stock kept rising and the bigs started giving him love his interest level in us has dropped. His highschool coach is Walt McBride, a Xavier player and former X play by play guy on radio. I know Walt and he is a good man. I also like to drop names to make myself sound important. Walt's position probably explains why we got such a good initial crack at him.

If we don't get Frease, I would suspect we would have no shot at Gates. But now that we have locked up one combo guard, a point guard who is regarded by some as one of the best in his class, and now one of the best big men in the nation, we are going to be going back to Yancy Gates. Yancy, this is your shot at being a part of something special.

We are also looking at a Kentucky recruit that pulled after Tubby left, Draymond Green. A good chance was that Frease was headed to Lexington until Tubby got canned. God Bless Tubby Smith.

This is Xavier's shot at assembling the Fab Five.

Oh man am I pumped. I told myself that if we could get Frease, the sting of the OSU loss would go away. I think it has baby! And I don't want to stop now, I want it all, and I want it right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOO HOO! Man, maybe we are a national program. I am starting to believe some of the shyt I have been shovlin!

I wasn't even going to drink tonight. Screw that. Drinks on the house. Your finest meats and cheese for all my men. Spare no expense. Kenny Frease is a Muskie.

Re: Frease Commits to X!!

Wow! Great get for Xavier. I guess I should be threatened as a Flyer fan, but I guess I have hopes that we can keep up with the Jones on the recruiting trail. This is great news for the league too. He looks like big deli with skills. I don't think the league has seen a big man like this in a while. He's a man-bear. He looks like a professional wrestler in a basketball uniform. I guess this could make Xavier into more of a half court team. They should be able to slug it out with big men from major programs with him in the line-up.

Re: Frease Commits to X!!

He may well be the second McDonald's All American to play for Xavier, and both under Sean Freaking Miller.

I hope he has a great offseason and a great Senior Season. When you are ranked that high your stock can barely rise. I watched some YouTube Kenny tonight and I am pumped.

We need Yancy Gates in a bad way. He is the seventh rated power forward in his class, and we have been in the mix since day 1. People that watch these things claim he is an absolute stud. Some say he would like to stay local, he is a Cincy kid.

One of his desires was to play to be a true power forward and not a center, and that worked against a school like Xavier where switching a talented kid to the five is not just a possiblity but regularly happens. With Frease in the fold he won't have to worry about that.

I think we can get Gates, I really do. And if that happens I will blow a load in my pants. This is already the best class on paper that we have ever had. Gates would make this Xavier class one of the best recruiting classes in the nation.

It is a great day to be a Xavier fan.

Re: Frease Commits to X!!

And to your point about a rising tide lifting all boats, I agree. This league has had POY's and all Americans. You can get there from here. I am sure that is part of what attracted Frease. And you can motivate some recruits by the fact that they will get to battle against the likes of Kenny Frease.

I know I am already annointing him to greatness, and I realize that is wrong. But just give me a little while to go crazy for this big commit.

And the idiots on the Xavier board were trashing Sean Miller all year. What a disgrace of a message board we have at Xavier. They had some poster register as Kenny Frease and rip the program, and the mods didn't even delete it. What crap. What absolute crap.

Re: Frease Commits to X!!

Congrats X. Hope you get the Gates kid as well. I know it seems like every year we talk about how the A10 is turning the corner, but this year i actually believe it. The turnarounds at URI, FU, and DU, the ability of X and UD to get big recruits, Umass returning to the postseason, the continued success of GW, and no more Anthony Solomon has me pumped for the future of the A10. Heres hoping for a return to national prominence!

Re: Frease Commits to X!!

Congratulations X fans. He sounds like the kind of player that can help the A-10 get back to prominence.

Now let's just keep it quite, lest Huggins finds out and hires your assistant that recruited him.

Re: Frease Commits to X!!

I am on a roll today. I have been following the Kenny Frease saga for two years now. I have a feeling Kurt Huelsman wet his pants last night.

Xavier will have the top recruiting class in the A-10 for 2008.

For the record RDriessen, these are the recruits that you start a thread with the word HUGE!!!!! in it.

Re: Frease Commits to X!!

Congrats X! You guys should be excited, as I see you are. A lot of talent coming into the A-10 these days with Xaviers recent commits, Chris Wright from UD, SJU has a top 150 guy in Idris Hilliard, and the resurgence of young teams like Duquesne and URI. Miller is doing a real nice steady job, getting better every year. Hopefully this bolds well for the whole conference.

Frease should be a beast in this league, but it will be interesting to see how he matches against Huelsman, Searcy and Benson. We will not lack depth inside. He's got an inch and 20-30 pounds on Kurt, but Kurt plays good defense on bigger guys. The only weakness I see with Frease now is his mobility up and down the court. It hurts to watch him run. We might have a team that can exploit that a little bit by then. Our big guys can definitely run.

Re: Frease Commits to X!!

I am very glad to see this. He could be a great star in the A-10. I'm sure Drayton Green is taking notice and this should help in convincing him to go to XU also. However I will personally temper my enthusiasm until he actually signs a letter of intent in November.

Re: Frease Commits to X!!

I really hope this leads to an influx of talent into the A-10. Dayton seems to be on the right track and I am glad to see St. Joes has a nice pull.

It is so important to get this league going again. Dustin Dow did a great article this past week in the Cincy Enquirer about the payouts from the Tourney. This would be a big help if some of the schools could use this money into improvements to arenas, marketing and general fan interest.

Thanks Kenny, and way to go Miller and Mack.

:lucky: :lucky:
