Stanford signee Schuyler Rimmer has us checking records after 28-rebound game vs. Dr. Phillips. http://SentinelVarsity.com
Johnny Dawkins got a good one
Too bad we don't have him in the class any more. Also shows that you can't doubt Billy's eye for talent or who ever on the staff was trying to pick up an only 'three star' player. Takes alot of work and hustle to beast that many boards, I don't care what kind of midgets may be on the floor.
Ohhh let's doooo it
ooorrrannngeeee and bluuueee it
He's still a top 100 player no?
Beatings will continue until morale improves
247 has him at 208 and composite of 181. I'm not knocking that against him, just saying some were questioning why the staff did go after him earlier in the recruiting period.
I don't think there were any midgets on the floor. It was against Dr. Phillips, who is ranked as the #1 team in all of 8A and 7th in the state.
I know, it's a joke.
Dr. Phillips has a small lineup. They are very tough & very well coached. Biggest kids are 6'3'' - 6'4''. Rimmer had a decided ht. advantage. But he has improved a ton & still has a ton of upside & he's gotten much more aggressive & stronger. I can see a lot of Murph in this kid, except he moves a tad better. Billy could have done wonders for this talented player.
Major mistake letting him go, whatever happened. Looks like we put the thought into bigger unknown prospects who won't turn out to be Gators and this kid would have.
Can't ever have enough glass crashers....
He said the reason he decommited was UF still recruiting other PFs in 2013 and 2014.
Didn't they ask him to walk on ?

I believe he had a scholarship offer. Not 100%, but that's what he made it sound like.
Never really said on the record. However, I heard from a very good source the reason was as you say, the ''barn looked a little too full'' at UF with PF's & with the possibility of adding another 1 or 2. And he's from a Gator family!!
yeah, billy had to feel good about embiid to let rimmer go
Very good point gatordd. Most thought he was in the Gator bag, most likely Rimmer camp did as well. Just goes to show you how fast recruiting can take a major turn when dealing with high school teens.
