Leflore has 11 hoops players sign with colleges

This just shows that Otis Hughley is one heck of a coach.

Leflore Rattlers

I figured I would put post this since it is rather slow at this time, especially when the decent news reflects on Brandon Hollinger's alma mater. I knew Alias would go and "scout" Hollinger when he played at Leflore.

The most significant was 6-5 guard Chris Blake, who signed with Florida State. Blake said traveling with the Rattlers played a role in his decision.

"I chose Florida State because I wanted to get out of Alabama at least for a little while," he said. "I want to come back and visit."

Is going to FSU really getting out of the state? I still believe the FL panhandle should be annexed by Alabama. :)

I don't intend this as a criticism of the young man, but I never thought Alabama was a legitimate option for Chris because I don't think he has been as successful a student as he needed to be. But I am very happy that Chris got this shot at a major college.

There was another young man on that team who suggested he might walk on at Alabama, but I don't know what he has decided to do.
