He's ONLY 100% committed.  Not sure he's our type of recruit in that case!!

Very true. By today’s neo-math standards it sounds like he’s definitely on the fence about it.

Yeah.  When I posted that I didn't even know Tulsa was in Oklahoma 😂🤪

I'm well aware that many people would put Akron on a list of most forgettable FBS schools (meaning D1 football & basketball in this case), but Tulsa may be near the top of that list for me.

Had to take a look.  Looks like Akron and Tulsa are very similar programs.  They've won at least 15 games per season for the last 15 years (except this year)  Many times 20+ wins.  Made the tournament twice, lost both.  Had some success in NIT and CBI tournaments.  

 

But the AAC has the benefit of potential multi-bids.  And Tulsa is right next to the kid's home.  He would've been nice to have in 2022, but let's not pretend he's a can't-miss prospect like a Zeke or a Chris Livingston.

Tulsa is a similar level program to ours, in a bigger conference in his backyard. This would have been a nice pickup but it's not baffling why he didn't want to come the whole way here

I think of Tulsa for football more than hoops but they've had decent teams here and there.  As I recall it is the alma mater of Paul Pressey and Bingo Smith.

I think the last Zips player to give the dual sport, hoops/gridiron teams "the old college try" was Jake Schifino back in the late 90's?

 

He lasted a couples games at the end of Hipsher's bench before hanging up the Chuck Taylors and focusing on football.
