    Are JuCo players the answer?

    This subject gets talked about a lot on this site, so i thought i'd post an interesting article from CollegeHoopsNet.com :

    http://www.collegehoopsnet.com/new/s...the_answer9906

    The article's conclusion is that, except in isolated instances, that JuCo players simply don't have the impact that they had 15-20 years ago, for a variety of reasons.

    Prep Schools are the New JUCO

    I have no problem with a coach bringing in JUCO players, but IMO they should only fill immediate needs.

    Prep School players are a better alternative to JUCO kids. While JUCO kids are 2 years removed from HS and more mature, they typically only have 2 years of D1 eligibility. Prep school kids provide the benefit of being 1 year removed from HS, but have 4 years of eligibility.

    If you can get a player like Mario Boggan at Oklahoma State, it is a score. But from what i can tell, your chances of getting an impact player like that are small. Which is why, if Michael Taylor can become a Big 12 superstar, you've got to respect the recruiting and talent evaluation capabilities of this staff. Where would this team be without #24 right now?

    Do the names Zach Taylor, Zach Bowman, Barry Cryer, Dagundo, and Mo Purfy ring any bells? All JC transfers.

    These guys are going to be so far behind by the time they join the team, because of a possible Jan / late Dec bowl. If I was them I would just stick to football. Or in other words what does this have do with basketball?

    I think there's a pretty big difference between football Juco and basketball Juco. Correct me if i'm wrong...

    Re: Are JuCo players the answer?

    Jucos are probably much easier to evaluate in basketball than football. I think that they are necessary at times, to fill in gaps where another player didn't pan out or when graduation hits one position particulary hard. The overall program should be built upon high school kids. That way they haven't developed bad habits that have to be coached out.

    I'd love to see what GMac could have done with Michael Taylor if he had had him starting as a freshman.

    Michael Nurse is one of my all time favorite JUCO's at ISU.

    Gotta love when he got hit by a truck and then came out to knock down 4 or 5 three pointers to bring us back againt Western Illinois (I Think).

    Re: Are JuCo players the answer?

    That was an unreal effort by Nurse. As far as juco guys are concerned, a lot of it depends on the style and system of the program. In some cases, juco guys fit in fine. But in some systems, I think it might take a couple of years to learn reads, etc. Teams that run motion offense need players to be able to read lots of things and it might be tougher for a guy to learn that and become proficient at it in 2 years. Just like you can't always know exactly how a 5 star recruit will pan out, you don't always know how a juco guy will fit in and work out.
