CHATHAM, Va. -- Tis the season. Time to gas up the car and go out and see some players. Preferably good ones. Sept. 9 began the contact and evaluation period for the fall. In layman’s terms, it means college coaches can do in-home visits with prospects and watch open gyms involving prospects at every level.

For as long as I can remember, my contact period has begun at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va., “The Grave” has between eight to 10 Division I candidates this time around and the strength of coach A.W. Hamilton’s roster is his multitude of wing players. His best backcourt is comprised of point guard Terry Rozier and shooting guard Anton Gill; both Louisville commitments and Rick Pitino was in the house.

On Monday, Gill looked good. He also looked wounded and he’s not 100 percent yet. When he’s at his best, Gill is one of the more dynamic scorers in the 2013 class. At Louisville, he’ll be asked to score and that means get to the rim or knock down the pull-up jumper he’s taken from once a weakness to a strength.
