Funny some are more supportive of any potential overhyped recruit than they are of the players who are actually committed to the program.
Whaaaat??

Nice perk but don't think it tips the scales. It's Virginia and they'll be a completely different team. It's not Duke or Kentucky and it's a one off. I think us as fans are more excited than potential recruits.
You're right. It has no effect.

Re: 2019 Hall of Fame Classic At Mohegan Sun

I would think that having the national champions on the schedule is a draw for recruits.

Re: 2019 Hall of Fame Classic At Mohegan Sun

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer Virginia guard Kyle Guy announced Monday he plans to keep his name in the NBA draft and will not return to the Cavaliers for his senior season. They are screwed. We've got them! He was the MOP of the final 4 and I heard that he averaged 83 points, 62 rebounds, 44 ass...

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

FWIW.. which probably means zero, we are rated 20 spots ahead of Rohde Island at #2 in the A-10 6with a lot of P5 teams between us including Michigan and North Carolina.. It would be more meaningful if the rating was for the entire roster but since it's for incoming recruits it's not such a big dea...

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

So far Mitchell is the only 4* to commit in the A10.

Re: 2019-20 season

At first I thought the chaos at the end of the season was disheartening but I'm feeling very different now. When McCall first arrived he had to really scramble just to field a team and staff. His second year still reflected the remnants of that frantic time and it wasn't working well. He has basical...

Regarding Mika, if you haven't seen this video, it's worth 4 minutes of your time. I especially liked the way he passes the ball into the post.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Recruiting sites rankings are so far off it's ridiculous. Looking at UMass all-time recruits: David Gibbs is ranked 6 and Pipkins 20. Ricky Harris is 39, below Travon Wilcher at 33. They really just don't know what a guy's going to do once he gets to college. There are so many variables. I don't kno...

Re: Around the A-10 (2018-19)

Not sure where to put this but transfers were ranked. I've listed the A10 guys. Immediately eligible transfers Kimble (St Joe's) 11, Pipkins 12, Laurent 46, Cobb 57 Sit-out transfers Williams (Duquesne) 9, Bynum (St Joe's) 18, Honor (Fordham) 19, Davis (Dayton) 41, Mobley (VCU) 54 http://www.espn.co...

Since players are most likely to transfer after a personal down year(s) (including and especially environments that lead to coaching changes), I'd bet that the number of transfers from a program is pretty highly correlated with number of wins.
Well, where's the graph?

Re: 2019 Recruiting

247sports has UMass ranked at 55 nationally with just Santos (3 star) and Buggs (2). Were they to count Mitchell (4) we would match Washington at number 21. I know it doesn't work that simplistically but as soon as Mitchell signs we will move up substantially. I'm getting a little anxious waiting fo...
