Class of '66 Old Fart

(2019) C/PF - Kadin Shedrick to Virginia

Recommended Posts

Let's have some fun.  Let's assume he committed tomorrow -- who's the odd man out among our current targets?   And does anyone else think he could be a red shirt possibility if he came to IU?

Fills the spot of Nnaji.

 

IU still targets Brooks, TJD, and a guard imo. Probably/possibly won’t get Brooks and TJD so if we get 1 of them then Shadrick fills a spot.

 

I’d be VERY happy with TJD, Brooks, and Shadrick.

 

But with the way recruiting works, I’m not really expecting Brooks and TJD although they seem very likely.

 

I’m not sure how much I like the guards we are left recruiting. Franklin, Bouknight, Newman. All would be solid additions though, without a doubt.

 

Staff acts like they are taking 4 but that is only if I consider Brooks and TJD to IU. Otherwise it can become 3 very easily.

I know some find the recruiting game interesting, but for me it's exhausting. I'm ready to focus for a while on the team we have and see how they develop. Speculation about what high school kids will do seems a waste of time.

I like he’s from Tobacco Road and has good size. Indiana recruits wherever we want. Inside out in NC, CA, MN, NE. Arch has to love that recruiting budget as large as the rest of B1G combined.

I would love to see the numbers here. Do we have the highest budget in the B1G?

Name me an Indiana kid that fits this mold or Nnaji? I understand your point and generally agree but if the staff is looking for a floor running, capable shooting big, there isn’t one in Indiana.

Yes TJD is a stud and we are recruiting him. He also isn’t 6’10.

TJD, Brooks and Newman are I’m sure welcome to commit now if they want.

Our recruiting budget under Crean was north of 750k yearly; if I remember correctly. The combined rest of the B1G spent less. Someone can fact check me of course.

I can’t you must have missed the important part that I like this recruit. Just like Forrester who I Liked. Obliviously this is the outside part.

It got to that at the end. Prior to that we were 4th in spending as of 2013. Part of the reason our recruiting expenses went way up and others stayed still (still not close to combined as 3 schools spent over $400k) was donors stopped loaning their planes. Other B1G schools have their own private planes. We do not. I hate to add fuel to the Gradman fire, but this is one area being a football school comes in handy. But they get first dibs. That isn’t to say our HC doesn’t get to borrow a private plane here and there, but we don’t own one. Or at least we hadn’t last I knew.

 

Edit: I know most saw that $750k number and think they are comparing apples to apples with all of the numbers. Every athletic department gets creative with their budget and has to list their expenses accordingly. I would be willing to bet my house that $750k is lowballing as well. The only money that isn’t changing is capital expenses. Simple expense reports are fluffed in both directions for a myriad of reasons.
