...during a contact period, which allows college coaches face-to-face contact at home, high school, etc. If MM and Niele want to fill out (heck, even just add to) this class, they might well have to do serious s road trippin' before the early signing period.

As for the true "point guard," I'm not aware of anyone outside of Jordan Nixon, who has campus visits to Virginia this weekend and Georgia the one after.

If ND is not part of Dara's alleged final two and Dara is firm on that, then we're done there. On the other hand -- if there's any wiggle room -- it would certainly be worth a phone call and/or plane ride if there's a possibility.

One other thought: the 5'10" shooting guard, Arieal Scott of Illinois, who at one time was committed to Duke (apparently a mutual choice to decommit).

As for Williams, it's disappointing that we didn't get a chance "to show what we've got." On the other hand, like FA said, probably better to find out now and not waste time/energy and hope on the scheduled Sept. 30th trip.

Last thought: If we can't find someone with mutual interest in us this year, work that deep Class of 2019 array of guards and wings early and often to join Anaya Peoples. Use this contact period for next year, as well as this one. In 2018-19, we will have Marina and Arike back for their senior year, Jackie in her junior year and Katlyn and Abby as frosh.
But we'll need folks badly in Fall 2019.
