(2019) PF Matthew Hurt to Duke

Recommended Posts

So why recruit? Kentucky and MSU are after Brooks so we should back out?

There are some players where you have to play a recruiting game I’d rather not play, and other recruits where it is not necessary. Also, I don’t want Indiana to take in the same recruiting strategy as Kentucky or Duke. Strong multi-year players with an occasional 5 star is a better strategy in my opinion. So recruit differently.

So, Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky, Kansas, Indiana, UCLA and ..........Memphis.

Huh.

Penny Hardaway is their new coach. I believe he had a AAU team before he became Memphis coach. He will be k own by these kids, plus he had a good career, too bad he had all those injuries.

Not meaning to not pick, but getting who we need each year is our goal, that could mean needing 3x 5*s in one class and then maybe 4*s for the next 2 years. It’s always going to fluctuate what we need and that is where Crean was a disaster. He didn’t know know how to build a well balanced roster and I hope Archie is light years better there

Absolutely agree here. 

I want to see a roster of 4-5 star players that are all multiple year guys. If you get the occasional 1 and done bc they are from in state, then great. Sprinkle in some grad transfers or 3 star program guys.

You’re right, but I think if you play out your point here, you’re trying to mostly recruit high potential 3 stars and solid 4 stars to fill 7-9 of your scholarships over multiple years, and then fill in the gaps with the best talent you can get. Definitely not the UK approach, so I think we’re in agreement.

My original point was that I don’t like the look of this recruitment. Too many rotten apples. I don’t want to play the dirty recruiting game for one year of a player. There’s a ton of risk that they get injured or struggle, and then you took on huge program risk for very little.

I remember Rabby and some national guys saying that Hurt would be a long shot, but if we get an in home it could get serious. Well here we are

If we get an official visit, things could get serious.

I really do feel like we will at least make his final list. 

I've thought we'd make his final list but not truly have a shot. We have a legit shot now. If we can have a great season and show that the only thing we're missing is Hurt we could do the impossible.
