    What do we do with an open scholly?

    Does anyone know if we still have a shot at Marcus Jordan? I know he was high on us but we had a tough scholly situation and now some big boys are on him. I know others have mentioned Darius Smith but I don't know how great of a shot we have at him.

    I'd rather go after Darius Smith.

    Marcus Jordan is not an improvement. Use it to get better.

    Marcus Jordan may not be better, but does such a recruit open up the floodgates of donations to the athletic department?

    I agree. Unless we can hit a home run with it, which I don't think we can, I say we just bank it.

    Marcus Jordan is a 3 star being recruited heavily by Stanford, Butler, Miami with Arizona State and Oklahoma getting into the game late. Last I checked those basketball programs are pretty successful so if he is good enough for them he is good enough for me.

    Not sure, but I know Greg Ohlson mentioned a while ago on his site that Smith was still interested in coming here.

    Re: What do we do with an open scholly?

    I would really rather go after a four year guy as opposed to another JUCO, but it is what it is. I wish the staff would give me a reason to trust them in their selection and retension of players.
