Syrupy game

This coaching staff is super gunnin’ for 5 Stars.

One would think something has to give eventually.

Totally agree. Its way past time to land some Elites

He looks very smooth.

We have landed elites. We have had five stars. Zak, Derrick and kam was borderline 5 stars. Mitch was number 2 when we got him.

Walton wasn’t a 5 star ever that I’m aware of. Irvin was borderline but from what I recall ended up a 4 star. Mcgary dropped to a 4 star. Only 5 star I can recall is GR3 and he was probably near the cut off of 4 and 5 star guys. Beilein did a phenomenal job identifying the right guys but it’s been a long time since we pulled some top 10 or 15 guys.

Going to venture a guess that landing five-stars will require more than just calling and offering them a scholarship.


I agree, especially if doing it ethically.

I do feel if one eventually lands, and has success, it could become normal for the team. But right now players don’t know the style of play, the coach is unproven, etc. I admire the ambition of the staff casting a wide net.

Of those 4 McGary was the only legitimate Elite. Chatman was over rated and a bust. It took Walton and Irvin 3 yrs to develop. Most Elites are at least nominated McDonalds All Americans. I was also speaking to consistent recruitment of Elites.

Now you’re just raining on the parade of the fans celebrating our program’s shout-outs.

I believe Juwan is going to get some key assists from the NBA player network that would very much like to see an NBA vet succeed in going straight to college.
