    Fair as it can be if you get excited about this type thing…but in reality it is about need. If you have a somewhat empty roster like Memphis, it’s a big deal, but someone may have only signed 2 really good guys and had a good returning nucleus. If those two guys fit their needs, then in my mind, they may have a better class. All subjective and based on a lot of opinions and potential.

    Duke had the #1 class with 3 dudes that played the same position. You see how well that worked out. BlueByYou would be correct. ^^^

    Wait till we sign McDaniels. Then we will be number 1.

      Get with the program. McDaniels has already signed…

      Luether, I would give 100 to 1 that he’s joking, playing off KSR’s obsession the last couple of weeks.
      Ya think?

    So, all the teams are set, and no further additions to any rosters?

      No there’s gonna be lots of movement after the draft deadline. There’s possibly/probably going to be a couple kids reclassified also. But for 95% of teams their rosters are pretty much set

    I believe that the college basketball world has learned that top recruiting classes do not necessarily equate to national championships. Cal has recruited more top talent than any other coach the past two decades, but it has translated into only one championship in 23 years. It’s more about having the right blend of experience and the right players in the right roles. More about building a team that getting a bunch of 5-star players and hoping it comes together at the end.

    The fact that Washington has signed two top-ten recruits after doing absolutely nothing in the history of the NCAA should make you go HMMM.

      you don’t follow much I guess. UW had #1 pick a couple years ago and another guy that was sort of unknown go high in draft after FR year. They also had #1 player in Country commit in Porter until they fired the coach and he went to Mizzou. For some reason they have gotten good players the last several years.

    I think we have an incredible class, but other than minion (sp?) cal went after the top 9 players HARD with each one at some point reported as UK being the favorite, only to miss on them all. This class ( for that reason only) worries me. Seems like Cal took last years RJ/Zion/Reddish class personally and set out to prove a point, only to miss on virtually every top 5-7 target he went after. Again, this class is great, and think if used right can be special, but lets not pretend Cal didnt really covet Wiseman, Carrey, Lewis, anthony, and edwards.

    1. UKCatAttack

      Cal is recruiting using a strategy of I’ll make your rich in one year the others are recruiting with a pitch we’ll make you rich now. This is why we have missed out on top 10 talent. We will be ok.
