FYI, Jaden Johnson, Ezikpe, Reese, Wade, Hueitt, Godwin, Caver were all composite three star recruits. Xavier and O'Connell were two stars. Four recruits were unrated (two were foreign players). The rest were transfers.

Hueitt and Godwin transferred out. They were not good enough for JJ. Ezipke and Reese are good, but not three stars quality, yet. Greene is not consistent, since he is going into his senior year and you still don't know how he will play from game to game. Caver was the best, but JJ played him too many minutes. Maybe JJ could not rely on a backup PT. Enjoy the next two season's.

Spreading bull as usual. Hueitt left cause he didn’t want to play defense or team ball. Godwin left cause he was a coward and didn’t want to face discipline for the rules he broke.

If Ezipke isn’t a 3star quality player Id like to know who is? That guy has skills and will do nothing but get better (hopefully). He may be my favorite player in the team.

You're moving the goal posts. Your original assertion was that we didn't recruit enough 3-star players. When evidence proved that statement false, you now want to qualify what constitutes a 3-star player by 'Monday-morning-quarterbacking' what happened AFTER they were recruited.

If you'd like to separately critique JJ for player retention, fine. Make that argument. Just don't conflate the two criticisms because they're not related. You can't make an intelligent argument that JJ's recruits don't have "enough stars". He's done quite well in that regard. When you count the recruiting rankings for the transfers he's brought in, he's out-recruited all of his predecessors by a large margin.

There are a few that will criticize nonstop. We now met most of the initial criticisms (big men, 3 star) and have a full class a year in advance. So, gotta find something.

JJ has the final say in picking, the recruits. These coaches have had 2 years to teach Ezipke, how to stay out of foul trouble. Hopefully, this third year is a blessing. You can't play, sitting on the bench

JJ recruited Hueitt because he can shoot. I feel in recruiting him, JJ knew he had a weakness in defense. Remember all these freshmen that JJ recruits are his choice, he is the Captain of the ship. He knows what he was getting, because he can't recruit highly qualified freshmen, that will be consist.

Yes, he has skills. JJ has just has not taught him to stay out of foul trouble, leading to more time on the bench.

Partly accurate...Hueitt could shoot in a free flowing and in a significant less structured offense. A shooter needs confidence that he has the green light to shoot and not be benched or chewed out the moment they take a bad shot. To put a true sniper in a structured system along with the added pressure of getting benched for taking a shot is a recipe for disaster.
