Well ok. I knew they were close. We got Downey's commitment first, then. I know that for a fact.

All I know I remember is hearing some recruiting guru on the radio telling the radio host that was all excited about Tilford that he was "no Devon Downey".

My ultimate point in comparing this to Curtis is that you would think the Mr. Basketball in KY would be pretty good, but he was a huge disappointment.

So,

We shouldn't bemoan Curtis not coming here. We need Brannen out there getting some other... good... guys. Not another Tilford.

Tilford was not a big recruit. And Mr. KY rarely means anything. Mr KY usually ends up at Bellarmine or Morehead St. More often than UK or UL. Tildord was a 2* grab by BH at the last minute when he was having issues getting his contract straightened out. Tilfors also was not a replacement for Downey, they were in the same class and played both as freshman. Jamal Warren or Deonta Vaughn would have been a replacement for Downey.

You know this stuff can be looked up? 8 of the past 20 Mr. Kentucky players have gone to UK or UL. Three have gone to Vandy, 1 to Tennessee, and 1 to LSU. NKU and WKU have grabbed a few. None have gone to Bellarmine or Morehead St.

Do you literally think I meant Morehead and Bellarmine? Since you did the research, you sort of made my point. 40% of Mr. KY went to UK or UL. Basically about half of Mr. KYs are good enough to play for big time programs and the other half are going to mid majors.

I think you might want to stop ... when you have already lost.

RE: Samari Curtis is gone
Geez! Give Samari a break. Two coaches leave him in less than a year ... and some of you are bashing him.

How many of you have even seen him play? Like a previous post stated: Not a huge short term loss, but I think he would have been a valuable contributor as an upper classmen.

As long as JC comes back - I've heard a few teams (Boston, Memphis) have worked him out but none have said he is a first round pick, the team will be ok next year.

This. Another Mick project. He is a replaceable player. When there is a coaching change these things happen.

One other thing, if Curtis was that good why hasn't Mick or Mack offered him a scholly at Loserville or UCLA.

Lol. So now we are defining players who are 0.925 (right on the high-3, low-4 star bubble) as "projects". I guess UK and Duke probably do that. By that criteria we've had 3 non-projects since 2010 (Cumberland, Clark and Shaq Thomas).

I know you defend every and anything Mick. Point is. Curtis was barely a top 150 player. He is replaceable. It’s also not shocking players leave after a coaching change. The sun will come up tomorrow. There are more important things to worry about. Take a deep breath and quit being so dramatic about anything that slightly resembles a criticism of Mick.

Not even about Mick, just about the insanity of people going from talking about a guy as great, then trashing him when he isn't coming to UC. Samari would have been UC's 4th highest rated recruit since 2010 and a local recruit like many of you complained about us not getting. Maybe Brannen will pull some magic and suddenly start grabbing up top 100 guys like some of you think he will, but if he doesn't, Samari will be missed.

The sun will come up tomorrow, and I'm sure Brannen will pull better recruits in the future if he's as good as many think he will be in the long run, but to act like a borderline Top 150 player is replaceable, especially in this class where pickings are slim, is pretty weak. You're telling us it wouldn't help us to have Ohio's Mr. Basketball at UC?

Actually was wrong on that. He would have been the 5th highest rated since 2010 (Jermaine Lawrence was pretty forgettable). At least according to 247, Though not by much, Jermaine Sanders, Keith Williams and Jacob Evans were all within less then 0.005 of his rating.

Wasn't Samari a top 100 recruit until he signed with UC?

I don’t think he was going to be an immediate impact next year. Might have down the road. However, some are acting as if this is the end of the world. Just need a little perspective.
