What are you talking about? No one is forcing the kid to do anything. And he sounds plenty talented. Finally this thread includes the kid's high school coach. Maybe you should sit this discussion out.
|8 hours 3 min ago||Yea and how many have||
Yea and how many have committed? That's not a criticism btw. Just reality
|8 hours 12 min ago||Interesting. Where did you hear that?||
Interesting. Where did you hear that?

God I hate Ohio State. It's an insane cult.
|8 hours 48 min ago||I would be pretty psyched||
I would be pretty psyched with that finish, personally. That's better than I was expecting. Anything beyond that would be pure gravy

It's been the reality for the last decade or so.

What did you expect? OSU is the top program in the country right now. They are a machine and Meyer has been there 3 years, not 3 weeks
|1 day 6 hours ago||Not surprised at all.||
Not surprised at all.
|1 day 8 hours ago||That doesn't really explain it though||
We have recruited many of the highly rated guys that went to OSU, MSU, Kentucky, Duke, etc. We just aren't getting enough of them to commit, plain and simple. Just because we didn't offer James Young for that reason does not mean we didn't recruit a dozen other highly rated guys and miss.
|1 day 9 hours ago||I love JB and I get that he has a philosophy||
on how to identify and land recruits, but I wonder if it might be time to adjust the "landing" part of the formula. Once we identify the right guys, maybe they need to be a little more agressive in pursuing them? Thornton basically said we slowed down or recruitment which I dont get at all.
When was the last time a top target committed to us while on a visit? We can't compete regularly with just the plan B and C guys.
Hopefully 2016 nets us a couple of our main targets or it could be awhile before this team is capable of regularly getting to the Sweet 16 and beyond.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Damn||
He sounded like a nicec change of speed back that we don't have much of on this roster. Oh well, this just shows the huge uphill climb the staff is facing and why I don't think we finish with much of a flury.
|1 day 9 hours ago||My best guess finish||
1) Wheatley Jr
|1 day 9 hours ago||I think we have more spots open than that||
It sounds like their may be some medicals on the OL announced at somepoint, plus some 5th years guys like Bellamy may decide to move on.
|1 day 9 hours ago||This is what I don't understand||
I know OSU has been a top 10 program for awhile under Matta, but I don't understand why they have been killing us in recruiting lately, given our on court success, player development and facilities, all of which now equal OSU. How does Matta do it, and how can we can get some of that Mojo in AA?
|1 day 19 hours ago||That is probably a reasonable||
That is probably a reasonable guess. People who thought we were getting a bunch of 4 or 5 stars down the stretch were deluding themselves.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Right and none of them have||
Right and none of them have been back except for Butler who went back with the same players. I am talking about building a program capable of making the Final Four every few years. You cannot do that without top talent.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Where did I say we needed||
Where did I say we needed McDonalds all Americans. Lots of great players each year not on the team. This is not a controversial point.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Yea exactly and that team had||
Yea exactly and that team had stars. Thank you for making my point.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Sorry but a team full of||
Sorry but a team full of sleepers doesn't get you to the final four. You need stars too. It is not criticizing Belein to acknowledge that.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Btw how discussing and stupid||
Btw how discussing and stupid is it that shoe affiliation has to be mentioned in a recruiting discussion? I know it's not a surprise that hoops recruiting is dirtier than dirt and the shoe companies are at the heart of it, but it still sucks to hear. I wonder if Addidas may be a big part of the reason that we have missed out on so many top prospects lately.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Winston and Langford maybe,||
Winston and Langford maybe, but I haven't heard anything positive about Battle recently. What have you heard?
|2 days 5 hours ago||You aren't misreading things.||
You aren't misreading things. 2016 Recruiting is totally up in the air right now. I am still waiting for the recruiting bump from our on court success but it hasn't happened yet. While there are no sure things we still have good shots with Winston, Towns and Langford.

I agree on Gentry. That is a guy we don't get with Hoke.
|3 days 19 min ago||I wouldn't call the results||
I wouldn't call the results amazing. They have flipped a 2,3 & 4 star so far. They are doing the best they can with little or no time but unless they grab 3 or 4 of the top guys left on their board it will be a similar late haul to what Hoke did in his first class.

I'm surprised they haven't reached out to Grant Perry.
|3 days 5 hours ago||Exactly||
that was, is and will always be bad for Michigan.
|3 days 6 hours ago||Well if you consider past||
Well if you consider past results he is easily behind Matta, Donnovan, Self, and Williams.
|3 days 6 hours ago||Yup. His demeanor and lack of||
Yup. His demeanor and lack of confidence concern me as much as his lack of athleticism or shooting ability. He just looks like someone who may not be long for this program.
|3 days 6 hours ago||Yep. Until recruiting picks||
Yep. Until recruiting picks up and we make more deep tourney runs there is no way he can be considered top 3. Top 10 maybe.
