    Alford on Recruiting Trail

    Top-50 recruit Trevon Bluiett decommits from UCLA - ESPN Los Angeles

    Lost top 50 commit and #11 SF on ESPN, wanted to be closer to home in Indiana.

    Another top 100 narrowed list and cut UCLA from final two.

    Re: Alford on Recruiting Trail

    It will probably take UCLA all of two years to realize the mistake they made. Like McDermott, Alford is a mid-major coach. With the right players, they can take a mid-major a long ways. Expectations and the whole game changes when you step up to the next level and play better teams on a regular basis. Mac is about to get his second lesson in that with Creighton's move to the Big East.

    Take them a long ways? Maybe a conference title but he is guaranteed to get beat round 1 of the tournament

    Ah the old "I want to play closer to home' bit. That's the "it's not you, it's me" of recruiting.
