NCAA Basketball Class of 2021 Prospect Logan Duncomb

Tags: , , , ,

There has been a flourishing, potential laden big man crushing it in suburban Cincinnati, Ohio for Archbishop Moeller High School all season long. It appears he is on track to become a valuable member of a prominent school’s core when the 2021 NCAA season rolls around. What are the latest developments with Logan Duncomb in regards to his recruiting process, and what kind of talent could he turn out to be?

Who is Logan Duncomb

Standing at 6’9″ and weighing in at 225 lbs., Logan Duncomb is an athletic, bruising center. According to 247sports.com he is currently the 80th ranked player nationally, 14th ranked center, and 3rd ranked player for the 2021 class from the state of Ohio. Duncomb has been making waves at Archbishop Moeller high, dominating in all the areas a traditional big man should.

A 4-star blue-chip recruit, Logan runs the floor well, is a solid passer for a front court player, and plays tenacious defense. He is extraordinarily skilled on the block with his back to the basket on the offensive end of the floor. Think a pint-size version of Rik Smits or Arvydas Sabonis. Duncomb’s mid-range jump shot is still developing, but he does have that in his arsenal to use occasionally.

What does Logan Duncomb have to offer?

For a center, he exhibits an innate amount of hustle and aggressiveness chasing down loose balls and creating deflections. Logan Duncomb is a hard-nosed, rough-neck force on the court when he needs to be. He fears no man out on the floor and has been known to set cringe-worthy picks that send defenders crashing to the floor.

Logan Duncomb Offers

He is currently considering a variety of high-profile DI programs. All of Wisconsin, Cincinnati, Indiana, Ohio State, Iowa, and Xavier are schools that interest him. Duncomb has received scholarship offers from each of those colleges, as well as Miami (OH) and Winthrop.

One of the best players in the state of Ohio for the class of 2021, Logan Duncomb is still relatively early in the recruitment process. He currently has only visited two colleges. Those two consist of Wisconsin and Indiana (both in late September of last year). The visit to Indiana was unofficial, however, while Wisconsin was an official visit.

2018-2019 Sophomore Highlights

Logan Duncomb Crystal Ball

Based on a recent report from Tom Kakart of Hawkeye Report, my crystal ball projects Logan Duncomb to wind up signing on the dotted line to become an Iowa Hawkeye. It could happen quickly, as soon as the early period begins this fall if both parties are on the same page. If his comments following an early-season game last year are any indication, the likelihood of him committing to Iowa is a foregone conclusion.

“I consider myself a big Iowa fan.” he said. “I watching Iowa basketball growing up with my dad. The coaches were in touch with my coach for a while, so that’s how they first started. ” Duncomb said.”He (Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery) called me up and said that he liked what he saw from me and had also been watching film of me and mentioned how I had improved. He said my style fits the play of his program and offered me a scholarship. I was very thankful for the offer.”

It will be interesting to see what the future holds for the dynamic prospect. He is a talented and exciting player that will inevitably start popping up on other school’s radars. One thing’s for sure, Logan Duncomb is a star on the rise.

Ohio State Basketball adds transfer Justice Sueing from Cal

Tags: , , ,

Justice Sueing transferred from California to the Buckeyes. Head Coach Chris Holtmann informed everyone of the addition of Sueing, a 6’7″ forward originally from Honolulu Hawaii. Sueing posted his transfer destination on May the 10th on Twitter.

Sueing played two years for the Golden Bears and will have two years of eligibility with Ohio State after red-shirting this upcoming season to comply with undergraduate NCAA transfer rules.

Cal had few bright spots last season finishing 8-23 overall, but Sueing was one. The Golden Bears completed Pac-12 play 3-15 with their head coach Wyking Jones being let go by the school after the season. Sueing entered the transfer portal shortly thereafter.

He arrives in Columbus following a productive two seasons in Berkley. He led his team in scoring (14.3 points per game), steals (1.7) and rebounds (6/game) last year. As a true freshman, Sueing had 13.8 points/game and 5.4 boards/game.

He also brings the ability to get free-throws, something Ohio State has lacked. In 2018/2019 he averaged 5.3 attempts per match. Only Kaleb Wesson average more last season for the Buckeyes.

Sueing will become eligible at the right time for OSU. Andre Wesson will graduate at the end of this coming year leaving an opening for a forward of his size and ability.

JUSTICE SUEING California Berkeley FRESHMAN Season Highlights!

Holtmann has suggested that he would like to have someone red-shirt after a transfer every year he is coaching Ohio State. Point guard CJ Walker was on the bench last season after moving from Florida State. Sueing will continue this trend in 2019.

My thoughts on this week in sports

Dorsey 1 Jackson 0

Jackson wanted AJ McCarren but was over ruled. Dorsey clearly has the ear of Browns ownership that allowed him to sign Tyrod Taylor over Jackson’s objections. That was a good move because Taylor helped the Bills get to the playoffs. The book on McCarren has mostly blank pages.

The Cavs have fallen and can’t get up.

Having lost 2 games to the Clippers then to the lowly Lakers, their chances of getting to the NBA finals don’t look good. That is hard for me to say because at one time I was a part owner of the Caves when they were a publicly held company.

The Buckeye’s basketball team got disted by the NCAA.

The “New Criteria” for ranking is supposed to devalue the last 10 games. That did not apply to the Bucks. The team stumbled badly late in the season and lost the 1st playoff game in the Big 10 Tourney. The NCAA gave them a 5th seed and a very bad matchup.

The Legion of Boom is now the Friendly Skies of United

CB Richard Sherman is a very dedicated man. He will give fits to the Seahawks for years to come. Watch out for the 49ers. They are on the rise but the Seahawks is watching their championship window close.

NOTE:  On NNR Samantha Bunten of NBC Sports and I discussed the NFL news of the day and a current topic of interest on fryingpansports.com/radio-show.

During the 2 games in Cleveland the Fans were chanting “Defense-Defense.”  The players looked at each other wondering what Defense was.

Defense has been missing all season.  While the regular season is one thing, it will be difficult in the playoffs for the Cavs to win with a D that ranked 20th overall.  Playoff games are half court affairs that depend on Defense, rebounding and free throws as much as anything.  Cavs fans had hoped that the team would “flip a D switch” and become the type of squad they were last year when they ranked 4th in points allowed.  That defensive effort helped them win the title last season.

The problem is the team does not have enough defensive players.  They signed a rim protector (Andrew Bogit) but he lasted just 53 seconds before he was hurt.  James is a solid defender but that is about all the Cavs have.  JR Smith is no longer a factor on D and Shumpert is no factor on either end of the floor.

While the D has been a problem, the offense has also been an issue.  The team has allowed teams to get back in the game all season long.  In the playoffs so far in 2017, the Cavs gave up leads of 10 in game one and 19 in game two against a very average Pacers team.  The O issue has been shot selection and cold spells particularly shooting 3 point shots.

The Cavs won both games but struggled in the 4th quarter to hold on.  The “Big three” have played way too many minutes.  For a first-round game that is not a positive.  Those minutes will wear them down in later rounds.

That is what I think.  Tell us what you think by commenting here or tweeting me @NNRonDSN.

If Black lives matter, why don’t those killed in Chicago matter?

Tags: , , , , , , ,

Black lives matter
Black lives matter

Understand that I believe any death of an innocent person is tragic.  But I think that Colin Kaepernick and others (black lives matter) are wrong about what is preventing them from standing at the National Anthem.  If they were being honest, they would realize that the number of police shootings of innocent Black men is very small compared to the number of Black men, women and children gunned down in our inner cities like Chicago.

The number of killings of Blacks in Chicago so far this year has topped the total of last year in just over 9 months.  By far the majority of killings of Blacks in Chicago and other major cities in the US are done by other Blacks.  If Kaepernick and others were protesting that, I would be supporting them.  Those people are the ones that are suffering the loss of members of their families.  Those are the families I feel sorry for.

There are many reasons why that is happening in our major cities but that is not the point here.  The point is this—Black lives do matter no matter who causes the death.  That is something that I believe every American could get behind.   Let’s not forget the genocide going on in far too many inner cities.  That has to be the primary focus of all of us.

That is what I think.  Tell us what you think by commenting here or tweeting me @NNRonDSN.
