    The first drive on this highlight … If he tries that in the B1G he is going to get stuffed. 🙂
    I do like him, though.

    The kid is smooth..Garland might be a step quicker. I would agree that Phinisee i s probably under-rated at this point. He would be a great get for Miller & Co. if they can pull it off.

    That was my first thought. That shot gets sent to second row. Throughout the clips however he shows good body control in traffic, can use both hands, and has a nice, repeatable jumper.

    As SC brings up, Garland looks quicker in distributing, off the dribble, and releasing his shot.

    It’s not a stretch to say, Garland is the bigger catch.

    But since Point Guard is such a must for this class, it’ll be interesting to see if Duke’s recruitment of Tre Jones impacts Garland to look harder at IU. He’ll have a chance to get serious playing time right away. And if not, if Garland is set on Durham, will Phinisee see past the perpetual low cloud coverage of West Lafayette to brighter skies in Bloomington?

    People, that shooting stroke is triple-ply levels of soft. The crossover at :58 was so merciless it could’ve been a war crime; it also shows he can get to the basket on his off hand. Were we worried about athleticism? I’d like the jury to look at 1:18 where Mr. Phinisee bamboozled those who attempted to stand in his way, then proceeded to slam dunk the ball through the hoop. Let’s get this man some candy pants!

    Recently visited the Purdue campus with my son on a recruiting trip. Ugly, I repeat,,,ugly,,,campus!! Still ugly ,for as long as I can remember from the early 1980’s. Probably not telling anyone something new on this.

    Some things never change. The Purdue campus “ain’t never been no beauty queen.” However, we alums have been spoiled. Not many campuses can hold a candle to IUB.

    Amen to that!!!!

    Their campus architect for a good 30+ year span must have been East German, lots of cement and small windows. There are a couple buildings there that use stone or brick, natural sunlight, and plant life but not enough to overcome.
