You mean 2018, right? We have not landed a recruit yet.

Yeah, 2018. I'm getting way too ahead of myself. I haven't heard a single thing about a single recruit yet. I assume we aren't a factor with any Top 100 type guys?

Don't think so. We just aren't a program that attracts those kinds of kids out of high school anymore. There are a number of reasons why... they've all been listed before (conference, style of play, lack of championships/deep run in the NCAAT, shoe companies, etc.).

Our best bet to land those type of guys in the coming years is through transfer, like Kyle Washington.

It's probably not intended for guys on a message board.

I concur (and with Beercat a couple posts above as well).

At first, yes I laughed and scratched my head, but I ultimately see it your way.

It's reached a treacherously low level on this board when race is a topic. Period

it was Tongue in cheek. Mick's done a great job over the years but wonders at times if his mindset prevents him recruiting a caucasian basketball star sometimes.
