(2019) PG DJ Carton to Ohio State

Recommended Posts

Just saw an interesting post on the Iowa board from someone claiming to be local to the decision:

That OSU has been in the lead for quite a while, primarily due to their roster situation.

That IU and UM made up ground, but not enough.

Archie was a high level PG in college, by far the best basketball player of the three coaches recruiting Carton. You would think he could land a high level PG. Not yet.

Would you like to run down the list of former players both at the collegiate and NBA level that didn’t inevitably become great coaches?

Always made the most sense to me tbh

Follow both programs fairly closely and I am fairly sure IU does not have to worry about TJD. OSU has pretty much locked up PF EJ Liddell and with his commitment, their scholarships will be minimal. Still think TJD is a lock to IU.

It does seem that way

I might be in minority BUT I’m content not taking a PG for a couple years if he’s not the right fit for us. I know nothing is set in terms of future success, but if DG, Al and RP can take us into the next couple years, no reason to think we can’t go after a stud PG in ‘21.

Well, I’m not gonna go dig through the threads for it, but it was there when we were looking like crap early on losing to FW and ISU and OSU was kicking butt.

I second this, definitely remember people on this site and others saying this

Well the only thing is that the staff obviously feels differently.

I do slightly agree though, PG seems to be a luxury position in the 2019 class, but we gotta take 1 in 2020 though.  Otherwise we'd only have 1 on the roster with Green graduating.

I'm laughing.  You don't think Phinisee is a high level point guard?   Let's talk in 9 months.   (And I know you'll spin this with rankings, etc.  I get it.  Let's talk in 9 months.  Phinsee has been undersold for 2 years and in Langford's shadow around this state since they played for the state title 2 years ago.  Phinisee is only ranked where he is because he's not as big as Carton.  He is absolutely as good as a basketball player.   Just wait...)

Agree, but I was told when I said the exact same thing that 'we only have one point guard on our roster'.

You’re kidding right? Phinisee considers himself a facilitator and still averaged 30 PPG his senior year. Frankly, I just don’t see what everyone else is seeing with Carton and I don’t think he’d beat out Phinisee for the starting role next year.

Well this was unexpected.. And people are questioning the Archie hire? Get outta here with that. You must not be paying attention to what else is going on in this recruiting cycle. No offense to Carton, he looks like he’ll be a great player, but I think there are bigger fish to fry in-state.
