(2018) PG Darius Garland to Vandy

Recommended Posts

It is all good Hoosier Nation. Step away from the ledge. We are in the final 2 for a 5-star point guard in the first year after a coaching change. We already have capable contingencies in case he does not come in Devonte and Phinisee. Unlike past recruitments this is not make or break. However--I still think Darius picks IU. I believe he will decide like many college kids he needs to blaze his own trail and not just worry about what his friends and the locals want him to do. I have been on Vandy's campus--it is nice but it is no IU. Vandy's BBall program is solid but it is no IU. Vandy's academics are stronger in most areas but IU's are close behind or even ahead in some areas. He has family connections to both campuses and BTown is within comfortable driving distance from home. He will weigh the pros and cons of both on his white board--and make his decision. In my opinion it will be IU--or he will always end up wondering what might have been. I don't see this as a dirty recruitment where other factors are at play like $ , cars, or promised jobs. All things being equal and on the up and up--imo Darius will don the candy stripes. If he doesn't --he is going to a fine hometown school and I won't hold any grudges. The best news of all is we won't have to wait much longer to find out his choice! I just hope he pays close attention to all the red and white Christmas decorations out in all the stores--especially those large red and white striped candy canes--It's a sign DG!

,Rob and Al we're OK.

Regardless of what happens, if Archie has us as final contenders for TWO top 15 players in 6 short months of recruiting... we're in for a treat next year and for many years to come.
True but I'd be pretty disappointed if we didn't get at least one of the two.

I think most people would be disappointed for a small amount of time, but would get past it once we realize (again) we are in tremendous hands.

I mean, I'll be disappointed if we miss on either because I believe we really have a chance to land them both! But I won't hold it against Archie.

Peegs said there is a lack of chatter about one school being confident. I presume that school is Vanderbilt as they had been exuding confidence lately.
I thought vandy insiders with gleaming with confidence.

Yeah it would just help speed up the process to contend by landing one or two top players right away. I'm not looking for a consolation prize. I want them both.
