2019 General Recruiting Thread

Recommended Posts

Ranking does not matter nearly as much as getting the kids you target. Franklin for example looks to be a good pick up and even though his ranking is lower he was someone that the staff targeted and went after. Same with Rob.

Many of the 2019 kids were have been talking about the last couple of days were not kids we targeted but kids we are going after now that targeted kids have said no. It is harder to get excited about them or feel their rankings don’t matter

Hopefully we can pick up the grad transfers we target - our first choices.

Looks like grad transfers are becoming just as competitive as 5 star recruits.

The obvious is they've had multiple years of far more competitive basketball than what most freshmen face in their high school careers.  Also, they've dealt with the transition from being the high school star to a role player, dealt with the higher intensity of coaching, learned to balance basketball with their studies and learned to balance their basketball life with their college social life.  MATURITY!

The rankings are reliable, but as the class becomes upperclassmen player development and a lot of the unmeasurables help even the playing field. Rankings just say, in high school, this kid was ranked X mostly based on past performance.

You can find good players ranked poorly, but it’s on the coach to develop them into that contributing player like the ones we see in this year’s Final Four.

The projected number two pick in this years draft was an unranked 2star coming out of high school.

Find it kind of funny that Darius Garland is being projected one higher than Romeo and didn’t even play this year. Kind of makes playing in college seem meaningless for these top recruits.

Lots of discussion regarding player rankings coming out of high school and today this from Rick Bozich.  His lead sentences:  "This is the Final Four that will make you wonder why you obsess over recruiting rankings.  My dog Ruby could have done a better job guessing on the evaluation on many guys who will play in Minneapolis this weekend."

Just joined in.

Here are 4 names I am watching. 

Recruits: 

Trenton Watford 5*. #14.  6’ 9” SF                              Matthew Hurt      5*  #  8   6’ 9” PF                   

Tranfers :                                                           Joey Brunk            4*           6’ 11” C               Bryce Moore         4*?          6’  2” SG             Both of these transfers are from Indiana and Bryce is a lock down defender who scored 9.8 points a game and was a good 3 point shooter for Butler 2 yrs ago. He was injured last year and didn’t play.

Why are you watching Hurt he’s not even considering IU. Moore never played at Butler he went to Western Michigan.

With Juwan and Fitz graduating, along with Moore, Romeo (expected), and now Forrester leaving, Archie really needs to put together an important class here. I would like to see one or two grad transfers if possible in this glass to help out from being such a young team again.

Also with the health issues of Thompson and Hunter there is a LOT of playing time available for next year and there still could be a couple more defections.

Well, we have 3 open spots to fill with the departures of Jake, Clifton, and Romeo. Would think that Brunk and possibly Lester Q are good possibilities for 2 of them.

Will be very interesting to see what else happens with what’s open.
