Basketball recruiting is like bidding and winning a big construction project.

I never count on a commission until I get a PO from the subcontractor and the GC has signed off on the sub.

Until Izzo sees the LOI come across his fax its bupkis.

Yep, I just assumed we had no real shot so the Solari tweet kinda surprised me.

If you were any better at math, you'd have realized we were in a stronger position than what you came up with.

Some things in life are just implied, Norddy, but you're too obtuse to catch the subtleties.

Good read. Crootin' is much more important in hoops than football. Let me rephrase that, landing top rated players is more important. It is easier to identify top talent in hoops that football. Recruiting rankings are much more accurate than the shit they throw against the wall in football.

Speaking strictly from an aesthetics standpoint, that's one of the few times campus looks dreary. The leaves are down and everything is wet and brown on the ground and gray in the sky. Gotta keep the guy inside all weekend.

I know we're big favorites for Bowen, Tillman and Eastern. Add those 3 to Jackson and it's another monster class for Izzo. Trent would make it a historic class.

Trent is ranked 11th, Bowen 17th, Jackson 22nd, Eastern 70th, and Tillman 89th

Hell we've even got about 1/3 of the crystal balls for McCoy the 8th ranked player in the class although I don't see him as a real chance.

Standing next to David Thomas it appears that Tillman is close to that 6-8 listed.

I know many of MSU's alumni and fans were taken back when Jim Harbaugh was going to speak at the Catholic High School in New Jersey at graduation and they had some real highly regarded recruits there.

Well, Izzo and Valentine see's harbaugh's grad speech and raises him one.

(La Lumiere, for those that don't know, is home to recent Spartan 5* commit Jaren Jackson, 5* target Brian Bowen, and a couple other targets. Jordan Poole goes there too)

Not quite so weird in that his Dad grew up in Louisville and played college ball at Toledo and pro with the Rockets before going to Australia to play. But there are plenty of Aussies without those kind of ties doing the same thing.

I don't know who that is, nor do I know what Intersport is, but I do know going to work for the freep in this day and age is a risky move. Seems like there'd be more upside to staying at the BTN. JMO.
