Baruti wasn't offered and Cain hasn't signed yet. I hope you are right that he is altering his recruiting philosophy, but we need to see results before I will get too excited.

|3 days 10 hours ago||What does morality have to do with anything?||
This should be a meritocracy, just like the football program. Lonergan and Dakcih may be nice hard working kids, but they have not shown they are worth scholarships at the Big Ten level.
|3 days 10 hours ago||Ummm that is the coach's job||
Every program deals with attrition. But to be clear let me spell out a few ways JB could do it better:
1) Start recruiting better players so that you lose three guys in one class who can't play at this level,
(2) Sign grad transfers. Good programs do this often, including IU and MSU. Has JB ever signed a grad transfer?
(3) Don't tell your 5th year grads to take a hike, unless you have better options. Spike could help this team next year, just like Max could have helped last year.

Well I can tell you that they are likely wasting another one or two scholarship spots again this year. Roster management leaves a lot to be desired
|4 days 12 hours ago||And yet||
our class currently has twice as many 3 stars as 4 and 5 stars. If you are expecting classes of mostly 4 and 5 stars you are going to be disappointed. On the plus side, the 3 star guys we are getting under Harbaugh are a lot better players than the 3 stars we got under RR and Hoke.
|5 days 7 hours ago||Yup- their basketball program has also been shady as hell||
for years and years.
|5 days 10 hours ago||I hope you are right because we really need him||
to make a huge impact. To me, he is still a bit of an X Factor, but no doubt he has shown flashes of talent that the other bigs can only dream about. DJ Wilson is the same sort of X factor at the 4 spot.

|1 week 12 hours ago||Yea I was wondering why||
he wasn't playing hoops but did not see an answer in the article. That seems like it would be an easier path to a scholarship assuming he can lose some weight. Maybe he just doesn't like baskeball?

|2 weeks 5 days ago||I hope more and more of this comes out||
it is sickening how the PSU cultists have defended this crap to the point of actually filing lawsuits against the NCAA etc. These nutjobs actually think they are the victims and not the abused children.

It is an insanely bad ET ripoff
|2 weeks 6 days ago||They seem like solid hires||
hopefully they can recruit and coach D.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||You conveniently forgot guys like||
Blake McLimans, Colton Christian, etc.
But I guess I should have expected that from a guy who think's JB's record matches up well with Izzo's over the last 10 years.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Not lately||
We missed out on every early offer we gave in the 2014, 2015 and 2016 classes except Teske. That is the definiton of missing out on your top targets.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||"High on the list" means absolutely nothing||
or maybe you have just missed the last 3 years of recruiting.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Ok, I've compared it to Izzo and its not even close||
In the 9 years that JB had been at Michigan:
Izzo has 3 Final Fours, 3 Regular season Conf Champs, 3 conf tourney champs, 7 Sweet 16's and a conference record of 113-49.
JB has 1 final four, 2 regular season Conf Champs, 0 conf tourney champs, 2 sweet 16's and a conference record of 88-74.
The numbers are almost as bad compared to Matta and Bo Ryan.
Man there are some delusional people in our fanbase.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I get your point, but you are assuming||
that we can actually land enough top 150 kids in 2017 to make it worth passing up the bird in the hand. The way recruiting has gone lately, I am not that confident.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||This is pretty much the kind of recruit I expected||
we would be in on this late in the game, and from that standpoint, I am fine with it. But we can't keep pinning our hopes on late flier recruits. At some point we have to start landing our top targets.
|3 weeks 2 hours ago||I get your concern but I am||
I get your concern but I am less worried given 1) his ability to play FB and 2) the Don Brown seal of approval as an LB
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||Agreed. It would be pretty bad roster management||
to leave 2 open scholarships next year. Frankly leaving even one open might be bad considering it would be the second year in a row.
|3 weeks 6 hours ago||I'm frankly happy that Belein has recognized||
that he brought in a too many players who could not compete well at the Power 5 level. That is half the battle. The other half is now finding better players and getting them on campus. That latter part has been a bit of a bugaboo lately.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||What a disaster the 2014 class was||
I was never a huge Chatman fan, even as a recruit, but we really need Wilson to step up or find a grad transfer or find a freshman capable of playing right away.
