    Big XII 2008 BB Recruiting

    Interesting 2008 recruiting stats from scout.com

    Kansas - 4 - 4 star, 1 - 3 star (The rich continue to flourish)
    Kansas State none signed (Where is Huggy when you need him?)
    Missouri 6 - 3 star
    Oklahoma 1 - 5 star, 2 - 3star
    Okla State 2 - 2 star
    Texas 1 - 4 star
    Texas Tech 3 - 3 star
    Nebraska none (actually a team mate of Lucca's signed a day or two ago)
    Texas A&M 2 - 3 star
    Baylor 1 - 4 star, 1 - 1 star
    Colorado 5 - 3 star
    Iowa State 2 - 3 star, 2 - 2 star

    Overall, the Big XII appears to be weak. What do the rest of you think?

    I think Stars are full of Sheeeet when talking about 2-4 stars. They know who the 5 stars are b/c they are easy to figure out. I bet Lucca won't be regarded as a 3 star when he starts playing. (pending him actually playing or leaving...)
    Some of the Big12 teams are still pretty young so they don't really need to bring in too many 5 star athletes.

    I dont care how young a team is, if a 5 star wants to play for you, you let him!

    Stars do count. Look at the top teams recruiting classes. They have all the 5 star guys.

    Who cares what they rate them at. What matters is how they play in games.

    Re: Big XII 2008 BB Recruiting

    I realize that just because a guy is rated a 5 star it dosnt gurantee that he will produce and/or provide team chemistry, but how often does a team turn away a 5star just because they already have some guys ahead of him at that position. How do you know that the guys ahead of him will produce!? I just think that if a talented kid wants to play for you, you shouldnt turn him away and hope for the best. Take as many "talented" kids as you can and hope some of them will produce!!!

    I care, because how highly they are rated has a pretty good correlation to how they perform. There are always exceptions (Wesley obviously better than a 2 star freshman, Tags a little overrated at 4 star freshman).
