It’s Thursday and we’ve got ourselves a LOADED episode of the Aaron Torres Podcast. Aaron discusses all the big news from college hoops – from Chet Holmgren to Mike Woodson’s insane recruiting run and Orlando Antigua’s return to Kentucky – and is then joined by National Player of the Year Luka Garza! Here is a full rundown of today’s show:
Chet Holmgren, Mike Woodson + Orlando Antigua: Aaron rips through the biggest storylines across college hoops this week. He discusses the commitment of the No. 1 high school player in college hoops, Chet Holmgren, who will play next year at Gonzaga (2:00). He explains why it’s both big for Gonzaga and college hoops and why players seem to be finally understanding the value of college hoops. Then, just weeks after crushing the Mike Woodson hire at Indiana, Aaron admits he was wrong after another big week recruiting for IU (17:00). Finally, he reacts to the mega news that Orlando Antigua – arguably the best recruiter in college hoops – is set to leave Illinois and return to Kentucky where he coached until 2014 (28:30). What does it mean for the present and future of UK hoops?
Luka Garza joins the show: Next up, Aaron is joined by Wooden Award winner and National Player of the Year, Luka Garza (44:30). Garza discusses his season as a whole, how he is preparing for the draft and whether his father got too much publicility during his career at Iowa. He also talks about his NFT and what a “movie night” with the National Player of the Year is really like
