    Re: HOOPS RECRUITING: Olu, Okoro & 2013 tidbits

    I really hope we can snag Okoro, however, I don't have a problem with either one of these guys.

    Re: HOOPS RECRUITING: Olu, Okoro & 2013 tidbits

    For some reason, I get a "not so good" feeling about these two (Olu and Okoro).

    Works for me... He's about the same age as CH, we'll have a young staff.

    Re: HOOPS RECRUITING: Olu, Okoro & 2013 tidbits

    "- Jonathan Severe – 6-foot-2, 180-pound small forward (Chris the King, Middle Village)"

    I admit that I'm not terribly up to date on my NYC recruiting, but I'm not familiar with this school, "Chris the King." Is this one of those east cost basketball factor prep schools or has CF branched out into the Charter school business?

    So Chris, what are the criteria here? Looks like the other assistant is based on recruiting ability. The role Lutz played was seen as "head coach mentor". Mann certainly has good experience, but on surface (I know none of these guys) not the pedigree that Lutz had. Was the feeling that Fred had learned enough in year 1 that he no longer needed that level of support, thus recruiting was more important, or was it just that Lutz was such a one time opportunity?

    We still do have former #1 assistant in Rutter.

    But not one with head coaching experience.

    Re: HOOPS RECRUITING: Olu, Okoro & 2013 tidbits

    I think that Lutz was a great luxury and probably helped FH immensely, but as time goes by that position gets less important and I believe that FH will be able to figure it out. Mann has plenty of experience along with being a great recruiter in Michigan.

    This should help us get those heralded high school recruits that everyone seems to be so eager for.

    Re: HOOPS RECRUITING: Olu, Okoro & 2013 tidbits

    Lutz was an incredible hire--one that is unlikely to be matched. There aren't a bunch of 400 win coaches waiting to be an assistant. I wouldn't worry a lot about Fred's lack of experience at this point.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    Technically, Rutter has been a head coach.

    It's ok. Our head coach has been a head coach now.
