He'll have millions of reasons to not care this time next year. lol

Very true. But for a program that loves to talk legacies, some ignorant people will always have an asterisk next to his. 

(I’m aware that his on-court legacy won’t be glowing, but he was still pretty dang good)

Might be just me, but I don't think he was ever going to leave as much of a legacy as a Yogi or a Cody. I'd put him on a similar level with Vonleh. 

Just the nature of being one and done... you don't get to see them grow over the course of a few years. It's over just like that. No second chances.

He should not be “dogged”, as he played well for a freshman, was injured, and may be viewed as a turning point for good Indiana players going to IU but on the other hand it’s hard to have a legacy when you only play one year and the team does not even make the tournament.  Multi-years, and defining moments, create legacies. Romeo does not have either.

Absolutely.  We have many former players that were very good and played several seasons, so a single season guy would have to be outstanding to reach legacy status.  George McGinnis had such a season and is recognized for it, but isn't as highly revered as a lot of other guys who may not have been nearly as talented.

I had to look up those stats - wow!

He's meeting with IU and OSU today in Indy. He's been hanging out at Kilroy's earlier this week though :-). Kilroys in Bloomington too

By my count that's two in homes and two "unofficial" visits since he entered the portal. Hopefully no need for an official.

Let me make it clear this is second hand...but comes from someone who has delivered on information in the past. He is hearing that Brunk is a done deal...

I keep a fair level of skepticism with anything I hear pertaining to IUBB (People had me convinced Billy D. was buying property in Bloomington), but there appears to be a lot of smoke for there to be no fire.  

Hope it's true. I really think Brunk could help this team a lot.

I really just want guys who want to play for IU, not at IU. 

For or at I'd settle for a player who can hit 45-48% of their outside Jumpers :92:

The one grad transfer IU did land so far under Archie was terrible. Texas Tech was coming off an Elite Eight season. Who cares about preseason predictions. Chris Beard had a track record of success. Archie does not at IU. The fact remains nothing about IU sticks out to top grad transfers who have numerous schools courting them.

Chris Beard's 'track record of success' at Texas Tech entering this season was two seasons long, one of which he didn't make the NCAA or NIT tournament.  

Good for Chris Beard at Texas Tech for a great couple of seasons.  But Bob Knight had a track record that laughs at one's like Chris Beard and he didn't make Texas Tech an attractive place to play.  And if Texas Tech was such an attractive place that it brought (what is now suddenly be rewritten as) the ungodly talent of Matt Mooney, then why was Beard's recruiting class ranked 33rd last year?

Why are we suddenly trying to rewrite Matt Mooney's ability?  Why the need to romanticize it?  In Texas Tech's three guard starting lineup, he was the third best guard behind Moretti and Culver.

Isn't everyone recruited over to some extent. I never understood this complaint/excuse. What coach is not constantly trying to improve the team. It's the player's responsibility to defend their position on the team. If a player truly thinks he is that good, he shouldn't fear competition.

I think Jake's dad wanted Miller to recruit under him.  Unfortunately, Priller had used up his eligibility.
