    6-7 AJ Lawson Canada's best in 2019

    First Post Banner
    6-7 185 AJ Lawson, a guard that is considered Canada's best in the Class of 2019 has had New Mexico on his list since last Fall. Sooner or later, the Lobo's coaching staff connections to Canada will strike gold. Weir and Robinson are after Canada's very best.

    Once they get one to come in and commit, I believe it will open up a pipeline to Canada's best ball players. DUKE signee RJ Barret is dominating at EYBL and is proving why some consider him the premier player in the world not in the NBA.

    I hope we land a serious high school talent with Weir, but at the end of the day most go to Duke or Kentucky.

    Weir's work the the Canadian U18 squad will hopefully pay dividends at some point.

    I love your enthusiasm and I hope we do see it one day. However, until we start showing some serious success in the NCAA tourney, with 2nd weekend visits, I just don't think we can compete on that level yet.

    Will VJ, Bragg and Lyle completely change all that??? Perhaps...

    so i don't see Lawson ranked anywhere, but you can tell teams like him. Oregon, Maryland, and Kentucky all seem very interested in him. He will probably soar up the draft boards this upcoming season and if Lobos could land him it would be huge for us. Simi was top 10 recruit and he was also Canadian so i wonder if Canada could be a real pipeline longterm.

    I hope so. I was wondering when we would see some players from Canada on our team. Hopefully really soon.

    pipeline for who? Barrett went to Duke and Simi went to Vandy. Which one came to UNM? Any Canadians yet commit to UNM?

    Until you have at least a few already in the program or at the very least committed, how can even discuss having a "pipeline"??? At this point its more like a pipe dream.

    NMSU did have several, so I don't doubt it can happen, but still don't think we will get the Barrett's or Simi's of the recruiting world.

    Not a pipeline, but definitely should be a fertile area with two Canadian coaches.

    NMSU was getting non qualifiers which would not be eligible to enroll at UNM. The level of talent they were getting wasn't close to the names mentioned above.

    Exactly, so why do we think we can suddenly get players that would otherwise go to Duke or Kentucky just because they are Canadians???

    well Lawson isnt a 5 star recruit and UNLV gets players who consider Duke and kentucky all the time. I think Weir getting players isnt because he is Canada more like he is now helping coach Team Canada. John Calipari worked for the Dominican national team because Karl Anthony Towns was playing for them and he wanted KAT to Kentucky. Same thing can happen with Canadian recruits.
