RE: Men's Basketball Recruiting
It would be nice to have a men's player taller than Nancy Mulkey.

Corey Douglas commits to VCU.

Wondering if Rhoades should be investigated for tampering.

Again, it should be a standard provision that you can't follow the coach.

Make it so you lose a year of eligibility.

That's just rude.
Regardless, 'no poaching' should be standard in the contract. What coach would object to "if you leave, you can't take players with you?"

RE: Men's Basketball Recruiting
Doesn't surprise me - I figured that would happen all along. I have no problem with it - honestly I'm not sure that Tim Harrison won't end up being better than MLE or Douglas. And Meyer might not be much worse either. We want guys who want to be here is the bottom line.

I do wonder sometimes though that athletes who get expensive surgery while they are a student-athlete at Rice sign some of provision that if they leave after 1 year, they owe Rice part of their medical bills. I say that knowing it will never happen, but that's my biggest beef. I doubt Douglas would have gotten the expert medical care if he was at some small D1 school in the middle of nowhere.

RE: Men's Basketball Recruiting
Student athletes are covered by parents and the college in varying amounts. The NCAA requires a level of coverage before a student can play. The conditions under which an athlete is injured also plays a part. The parents insurance is generally first and then if treatment exceeds that then the schools step in. There is also issues if the athlete seeks a course of treatment that differs from generally accepted guidelines.

The NCAA does fully fund a catastrophic policy with a $90K deductible but it isn't up to the school to provide money for the deductible. That is handled on a case by case basis.

All of this is why the Northwestern football team sought to be covered under workman's comp for injuries suffered while participating in their sport.

2018 Mac McClung, who we were showing considerable interest in, just got offered by Georgetown so I figure that's about it for us on him. Hoping that's not the case since he's a really exciting guard, something we're definitely looking for, but hard to compete with the big boys.

Also new offer out to 2018 F Tayler Mattos. He's 6-9 and from New Hampshire with offers from mid- to low-major northeast schools.

Don't really know where to put this, but I was watching back some of Najja Hunter's HS tape, and it turns out he played a little PG. Probably why the staff didn't seem desperate to get another PG late in the recruiting process.
