    Re: New Chris Williams article re: Recruiting

    Know the rules people. People mix up the word "recruiting" with "contacting" all the time. They are different.

    You can send one questionaire to a player anytime, 7th grade, whatever. You cannot write them again via letter or email until September 1 of their Junior year.

    Players can't sign until November of the their senior year. But they can "Verball commit" anytime. Coaches and players take "offers" very seriously. If a coach were to offer and a player committed, then the coach later backed out, they would lose all credibility and trust in recruiting. Other coaches would use that against them for all time. Coaches very rarely hand out more offers than they have scholies available in that class. If they do, it usually a "first come, first serve" deal where offers are made to 2-3 different players for one scholie, first one to say yes, wins. Coaches never do this without telling all parties involved.

    I don't know who this is aimed at, but per your definitions, isn't "contacting" part of "recruiting"? I guess I'm confused.

    I think he is talking about the post in the 2010 recruit thread and accidently put it in this thread. Otherwise he just started an argument with himself. I am pretty sure if he did that he will win.

    Re: New Chris Williams article re: Recruiting

    Receuitting true big men remains the toughest get for ISU. Guards are available. Smaller forwards are available. Bih men who are good are special. I noticed Matt Hill went from Lincoln down to Austin last year. And he was a string bean. Yet he did well.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: New Chris Williams article re: Recruiting

    I agree that we need big men, but a team with three stud guards and two above average bangers down low has an opportunity to win most games. I like talent, and I like the fact that we are talking about 4 and 5 star recruits vis 2 and 3. Remember Homan, Shirley, Hubalek where all 2-3 star recruits and they ended up OK.
