(2017) SF Kris Wilkes to UCLA

Recommended Posts

Something stinks here. Crean is no world beater by any means but his record of getting kids to the NBA and his reputation within NBA gm's and scouts FAR exceeds that of Steve Alford. It's not even close. Adrian Wojinowski claimed in a podcast that Tom Crean is a top 3 coach in NBA circles. They value his opinion over the likes of many coaches that would shock us.

I don't give a rats arse if Alford is gone next year and he changes his mind and wants to come back into the fold! Absolutely NOT!!! If we are not good enuff the first time around...we are certainly too good for him the second. If that is being "salty" so be it. I spent 20 yrs in the Navy and am proud to be salty. If he chooses UCLA, you can wish him luck if you want. As for me...won't even check his stat lines in the news rags! Care only about the Cream and Crimson!!!

Well, he didn't go to Hoosier Hysteria this year. There's that.

Yeah but he talked about it! Told Hoosier nation to let him know about chants for him. I don't know if he will come here or not but it should be a no brainer!

Come on dude. Forget what NBA types think. If you can't spot the obvious appeal of a half full Pauley with a coach with the history of a Steve Alford stalking the sidelines in a shootout with a Washington St, I don't know what to tell you.

Love your sarcasm!

We are recruiting the wrong players. If you are selling development you target high 4 stars not 5 stars and lower end 4 stars. The high 4 stars give you close to the talent of the 5 star but understand they aren't 1 and dones. 

then again we couldn't land Waters because a coaching staff came in at the last minute promising something that more than likely isn't going to happen the way they said it would. 

 

Development can mean different things when approaching various players. To a potential one and done it's about skill and player development in that one year in an effort to better prepare them for the NBA. Maybe it's also getting a guy like Wilkes from a mid-20 pick to a lottery pick. Those things can mean real dollars to a one and done. 

Just making that that point that "development" doesn't mean no 5*'s.

No apology needed! This is the attitude I have about this and many other things! It is a breath of fresh air that I'm not the only one!  Cue the wife so she can see!

With Bozich switching his cb pick to UCLA, joining the 88%, I say we have little to no chance.

Well that really sucks! I do not understand this! Oh well go IU!

The wild card for me is that I don't know what is going on behind the scenes. Recruiting seems to be such a dirty business that anything seems possible. Considering Mr Glass's comments on how IU decides who to recruit, I think the standards are pretty rigid. If a grey area offer or an out and out deception is presented to a kid, then they might be swayed to make a decision not in their best interest. IU, I hope, doesn't go down that path. I have been critical of CTC in the past, but I will stand with him all day long in terms of integrity in recruiting and the program.

Honestly I feel like that kind of recruiting will keep us from putting up anymore banners. We don't recruit well enough to be turning down talented but questionable kids.
