Stiff Alert

Lehigh reports signing a seven-footer for next season.

John Gourlay out of Arkansas . . . a native of Orange County, California, carries a 4.0 grade point average at the very prestigious Subiaco Academy in Subiaco, Arkansas.
The VERY prestigious Subiaco Academy, in that haven of intellectualism that is Arkansas.

Gourlay has grown a remarkable eight inches in the past two years and weighs close to 250 pounds. In addition to considering Lehigh, Gourlay also looked at Illinois and 2004 Final Four participant Oklahoma State.
Does anybody think he really passed serious offers from the Illini and the Cowboys to play sign early with Lehigh without even waiting to see if a strong senior season would bring more offers? When a seven-footer signs early with a Patriot League school, chances are the most impressive part of their resume is their height. But hey, like the coaches say, you can’t teach a kid to be tall.

Where have you gone Neil Fingleton?
