"What (Michigan coaches) told me is that they're focusing on point guards right now, but if anything opens up, they'll definitely come back on and recruit me as hard as they were," said Towns

|7 hours 29 min ago||And recruiting has gone way||
And recruiting has gone way south since those 2 classes. That is the problem. Recruiting got worse after the NC run which makes no sense
|7 hours 42 min ago||Go back to recruiting the top||
Go back to recruiting the top 100 types that fit our system and we think have upside or room to breakout. We clearly aren't going to get the top 25 players unless there are significant ties ala McGary.
|13 hours 16 min ago||I think demographics are working against us there||
the state just doesn't produce enough elite talents to support both us and Sparty.
|13 hours 42 min ago||How do you know he was treated differently by the court||
or the police? Where you there at the scene to witness the events?
|15 hours 30 min ago||Lets face it||
we just aren't going to get 5 star kids unless they commit early before they blow up (GRIII), or there are a ton of existing connections (McGary).
We probably would be better served going back to finding the top 100 guys with big upside and hope they produce early (like Burke and Nik) or they stay for 3-4 years and develop over time.
|15 hours 33 min ago||We already told Towns we were backing off||
Time to move on. He doesn't fit what we need in any event which is ball handling and quickness on the perimiter.

preferred Petters? It will certainly be interesting to see who is proved right in that battle.

will continue another year. Great.

|1 day 16 hours ago||In other news||
we have stopped recruiting Seth Towns which makes sense. We need guards in the worst way.
|1 day 16 hours ago||I hope you are right, but a lot of people||
think he is all Sparty.
|1 day 16 hours ago||I've been expecting these types of offers to begin||
now that it appears we may strike out on our top guard/wing targets once again in 2016. We obviously had success with the top 100 types before so hopefully JB can recreate that success, but it would certainly be easier to do with a top 25 guy here or there. Not sure that is meant to be for whatever reasons.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Its not one mediocre class||
it is 2 straight and a serious chance 2016 will be as well. We are striking out on all of our top targets and recruiting has gotten worse, not better, since our NC appearance. That is cause for concern going forward until JB can stop the trend.

Just another terrible sports day in a horrible sports year. Tigers losing. Lions with another terrible pick. And men's hoops a bridesmaid again.

How about being pissed at a kid who would change a major life decision over an inocuous tweet. That sounds like a pretty stupid basis for choosing a college

That wld fit in with the recent reports. I hope that is false. I don't need more reasons to dislike hoops recruiting.

I normally bash the Lions but I don't think it was a bad move. They needed interior line help in a big way. No doubt they have other needs but they won't fill them all day 1

Well JB wanted Donnal, Colton Christian. Brundige and McLimans. That did not make them good players. Sure JB is right more than he is wrong but no coach bats a thousand
|1 week 6 hours ago||Yea and the same principles||
Yea and the same principles apply to Chatman. He likely won't play much and he needs to develop more.

that just is weak. Another reason to hate Bettman, I guess.

My concern was never that Davis wasn't a good player. It was more in terms of team needs and roster balance. If Davis reclassifies as a 2017 then that alleviates those concerns.
In any event, it looks like Davis is a pretty good prospect and JB may have got in before some other prospects.
