6-5 Ari McCurry of Roseville, CA. So the 2018-19 team will feature a 6-5 and a 6-9 player! That's obviously our largest duo ever although we did have a 6-4 and 6-6 duo one year.

That's worth making a new thread!!
Maybe even add it to the sticky list?

What do our incoming classes look like now?

RE: Women's Baaketball Recruiting Thread
McCurry and Jasmine Smith (5-10 guard from Kinkaid - ESPN top 100 recruit). That's it for the moment. We have 1 more scholarship to give with 2 current seniors (Rainey and Knight), although there is a chance Rainey will redshirt this season which would mean only 2 open scholarships total.

Can someone consider fixing the typo in the thread Title? While I am not a grammar-perfect person, it is rather ironic having that obvious finger fumble in a Rice Board thread title.

Bugs me too and it’s my typo! But I can’t edit it except on the PC browser. I’m on via mobile 99.9% of the time. I tried in old (32-bit) CSNBbs app and tapatalk. Will give it a shot tomorrow.

ETA: Figured out how to do it in Tapatalk. #WeTrySmarter

RE: Women's Baaketball Recruiting Thread
Unfortunately I've heard the women have been hit hard by the injury bug already this year. Ellig and the freshman post from Indiana are both out for the year I believe with knee injuries. And Rainey is redshirting the season too. I still think we could be quite good but we're going to be tiny and not that deep with only 10 scholarship players (and just 1 over 6 feet). That could change quite a bit by next year with a potential front line that could go 6-9, 6-5 and 6-2.

With Rainey redshirting, we probably aren't signing any other players in the recruiting period.

RE: Women's Basketball Recruiting Thread
McCurry and Smith did sign yesterday with the women's basketball program. Smith is a top-100 recruit so that's probably the only top 100 either the men or women did sign yesterday. So next year's team will have three former top-100 recruits (Smith, Erica Ogwumike and Nancy Mulkey). And several others were close to top-100 types. I still think we'll be okay this year if the 10 healthy players can stay healthy, but the 2018-19 team for sure has top-25 potential.

Noticed that in addition to Smith signing at Rice, that two other conference mates (WKY & ODU) have each signed one member of 2018’s ESPN top 100

RE: Women's Basketball Recruiting Thread
There is really no words to describe what a great job Coach Langley has done in recruiting. Do not tell me Rice cannot recruit with the P5 schools because of its high academic standards. They will come with the right coach in place. This puts a lot of pressure on the mens' program. They better turn it around soon in the recruiting phase.

You can’t compare recruiting for women’s and men’s sports. There aren’t pro women’s leagues paying millions of dollars a year. A lot of the MBB/football/baseball players are delusional and think they’re going to start in the pros and make big $$$. JK tweeted a story years ago showing how small the percentages are that even make the pros (1%) compared to the percent of HS seniors who think they have a chance (80 or something ridiculous). There’s a reason Rice was good at football when a student athlete could make more money as a professor than in the NFL.

RE: Women's Basketball Recruiting Thread
Think somebody else posted about the subject at one of the annual dinners, but Rice does have a nice niche along with the Ivies, Northwestern, Vanderbilt, Stanford, etc. for women's players looking for the full academic experience where they're not restricted in what they can choose to study. And I agree with the post above, that with less chance of a professional career more student-athletes would be inclined to choose a more academically rigorous school. That's why, dependent on how much the program wins and coaching obviously, I'd expect the women's team to consistently be in the hunt for 3-star recruits and higher when we start looking at the 2019 class.

Good news for you: that is an understatement. That’s actually been true since Langley took the HC job. We’re already projected to be able to put a lineup next year on the floor of mostly 4-Star and 5-Star recruits.

RE: Women's Basketball Recruiting Thread
I disagree. That is just a cope out. The only reason I can think of you want to play with the big boys is you are in front of larger crowds when you play or you want to brag to your homies you played for a P5 college. Only about 1% of college basketball players will be drafted in the NBA. The bottom line is even if you are convinced you are the next LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, or Akeem the Dream (Yes, I’m old-school) you better get that education. The worst case scenario is you use all your new found math knowledge to make sure you don’t go bankrupt like Allen Iverson and 80% (or so) of NBA players that file for bankruptcy within 5-years of retirement. The best case scenario is you know how to handle your money due to all your math knowledge and build an empire like Michael Jordan or at the very least give yourself an option if you blowout your knee or ACL two months into your career. It can happen to anyone, just ask Derrick Rose and Kobe Bryant who learned first hand of their basketball mortality last season. I hope Rice explains this to the recruits.

RE: Women's Basketball Recruiting Thread
It’s pretty clear you’re out of touch with 16 and 17 year old recruits. They’re going to go where they think they have the best shot of making the pros. It’s especially true for basketball, look at the transfer epidemic.

Also for the degrees the majority of guys major in you’re just as well off at most of the P5s. The head scratcher is when guys say they value academics but end up at some of the G5’s as mentioned in the football recruiting thread. Pretty clear at that point their athletic career is the priority.

Oh I'm aware of the talent on the roster. Meant that I think we're more likely to see continuity in our strong recruiting/transfers than a regression as long as we maintain some semblance of program stability, at least based off who the coaching staff appears to be targeting.

RE: Women's Basketball Recruiting Thread
Why did Rhoades come here then? Why did we have a 20 game winning season last year? Maybe the coach we hired had something to do with it ? They will come if we find the right coach to attract them and stay if there is stability in the program.
