AK Rounds Out Class

Head Ole Miss basketball coach Andy Kennedy got another commitment this week as Will Bogan has committed to the Rebels. It is believed this will be Kennedy's last commitment of the year as he has given out all of his schaolarships. Bogan will bring a deep true deep threat to the Rebels. While there have been some decent shooters after the last few years, based on some of the articles and highlites I have seen, I don't think we have had one like Bogan.

From what I understand Bogan has not been highly recruited as of yet, but was beginning to draw alot of attention from some larger name colleges. Kennedy evidently came across Bogan at a AAU camp this summer, and he really like his style of play. Believe me if Kennedy is going to bring this guy all the way from Idaho there is a good reason for it. (Click above for highlites)

Here is an article from Yahoo Sports on Boggan:

Not many high-major prospects come out of the state of Idaho, but the top 2008 prospect in the state Will Bogan has a couple high-majors on his trail. The 6-foot-1, 165-pound point guard from Caldwell (Idaho) Vallivue High School will visit an SEC school later this month.
Bogan, who was spotted by Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy during the last week of the evaluation period in Las Vegas, will travel to Oxford, Miss., on an official visit on September 22. And Ole Miss isn't the only high-major school aware of Bogan's abilities. With the strong possibility of one or both of the Lopez twins leaving for the NBA, Stanford is recruiting the largely unknown guard.
"The Stanford situation is unique," said Bogan's father Bill Bogan. "Their three scholarships for 2008 are already committed, but Coach Johnson said Will has the next one if it comes open."
A savvy player, Bogan has a blend of quickness and deep shooting ability that makes him awful difficult to defend.
"Will has such deep range," said Bogan's travel team coach Loren Schwarzhoff of Boise Flight. "He's almost unguardable because if you come out after him, he'll just go right by you. He's also extremely unselfish and just doesn't make mistakes with the basketball.
"He's a gym rat and the type of player who will end up being an assistant coach at whatever school he goes to."
