Default Basketball Recruiting

Starting to get irritating with our two top targets committing to VCU and Yale... We have three schollys available for next year. I know they are going to look at the transfer market but are there any high school prospects they could go after now that they lost out on their top two targets?

VCU had Shaka (MAN I WISH WE COULD HAVE KEPT HIM!!!) at the time and mack wanted to play for the man, so I wouldn't feel too bad about that one. I'm sure shaka was on him early, maybe even when he was at Clemson.

Yale is a fantastic school, obviously. NBA is a reach compared to many other professional leagues. That's why you see their players make more overall per athlete. Chances of making an NBA roster are slim, so having a Yale education paid for is extremely hard to pass up. If your child was in the same boat, where would you want him to go (sober answer, not post FSU football game answer)?

Basically, we have to find diamonds in the rough. Riley may get his hooks into some top tier prospect every once and a while, but our roster will never be full of them in the near future. Now if Brownell can start stringing some tourneys in a row and making some noise while there, then maybe our program can attract some better talent. Clock is ticking on ole browny. If he doesn't make the tourney in the next 2-3 years (more likely 2), he'll be gone.

It looks like we'll have to wait and see what happens in the spring. I believe we'll have a little something tomorrow in the Insider Report.
