Gosh. I sometimes forget how young these basketball recruits are. Small forward Justise Winslow recently tweeted this below.
Everybody knows where I should go to school but me… #hadtoTweetIt

This blog among many others comment almost daily on what young recruits like Winslow might do, and when you see tweets like the one above it puts their age back into perspective. At that same age? I would never have been able to handle the kind of pressure that most of these kids face on a daily basis, and it is important to be reminded of that from time to time.
Winslow had an excellent summer winning a gold medal with talented center Jahlil Okafor and the rest of the US U-19 squad. The head coach of that team was Billy Donovan, so you know the boys in Gainesville have a shot at Winslow and they have already hosted the young man.
You can bet though that even if we sometimes forget how young the players are here at Rant Sports Prep, we will try to keep a wider perspective in the future. Stay tuned in later today for a piece on Tyus Jones’ recent recruiting decision.
