Rant Sports- Dave Daniels

Cliff Alexander may be coming to a close on his recruitment process within the next week and he may just stay in state. He will also be gunning for a state title this season with Jabari Parker out of the picture, but you can bet that Jahlil Okafor might just have something to say about that. It will be a stirring battle that could end up coming down to the final couple weeks. They both might even be up for some national player of the year awards as well, but that remains to be seen at this point.

Thanks to the tweet below for the update on the Curie forward.

You can bet that I’m rooting for my alma mater on this one, but my hopes are also not high given the past history. Honestly it would shock me if they landed a top 100 recruit at this point; that is how depressing it has become at this point but that is the way it goes for the Blue Demons. The new downtown arena will help some, but a history of mediocrity will also play against them.

Alexander would make a stunning addition to either program and you can be sure that we will keep you posted here at Rant Sports Prep. Keep an eye out tomorrow for my coverage of the Champion’s Classic; Okafor will be in attendance as well so there may even be recruiting implications on the line, but that is not for certain either. Thanks for reading folks.

Watch HS Hoops Coach Headbutt Referee

There is absolutely no excuse for this to happen ever. During an argument about a call, Neshaminy (Pa.) high school basketball coach Jerry Devine decided it would be a good idea to headbutt the referee to prove his point. Devine was then ejected from the gym and could now face criminal charges for his actions as well as losing his teaching and coaching job.
