i'm sorry but this maybe the dumbest boneyard post of the year so far...Jersey PGs like jay williams, kyrie irving, and bobby hurley were part of Coach K's "winning formula" but they wouldnt have been good enough for Calhoun?
That’s why I said mostly. Jay Will and Kyrie were top 5 guys out of high school. Those are can’t miss prospects.

If we were offering that quality of a point guard recruit from the state, I wouldn’t comment. If we’re going to offer fringe 4 star guys, I would prefer from the recruiting areas I mentioned.

PS: I think we should recruit JJ Starling.

That was me hyping up Kwin during the OLlie era to bring excitement to the fanbase. We needed it to get through that miserable era. Good try though.

Everyone on the yard knows I’ve been right a lot.
When did it become impossible for people to just say.....I was wrong. Instead you were doing your duty as a UConn fan to hype up the fanbase
Come on

Connecting positions on a basketball court to a geographical area is just not smart.

As for ratings, even under the best of circumstances, most coaches know 1-40 or so are pretty reliable. After that, the rankings become way more collapsible and a lot less meaningful. Recruiting experts follow trends and hype, too; they’re not immune.

Under these particular circumstances, with the lack of direct observation, I’m giving even less weight to stars or getting worked up about a fringe four or a four star. For the class of ‘22 especially, this would have been the summer to solidify their ranking and start pulling in bigger offers. We’ve seen it over and over- a guy enters Peach Jam or whatever with some A10 and AAC offers and comes out with half the ACC or Big Ten offering him. Coaches are doing what they can to put out tape on their guys, but it’s not the same. More than ever, college coaches are going to have to depend on and trust their connections and use their own assessments. I feel good about this particular staff in that situation.

I'm reading through the posts in this thread now and there are some absolutely hilarious takes. I mean seriously there are a lot of people on here that were just absolutely delusional.

To cap off our talk, I asked Harris to give his own scouting report, if he were the opposing coach how would he break himself down?

“Great point guard at 6-foot-4 with athleticism. I can score on all levels and my main goal is to get my teammates going and giving them the ball in spots that they can do well in.”

I would think Alabama would be on him pretty heavy since Oats knew him from his days at UB.

If there's no school until January they all remain frozen in time like Walt Disney and Ted WIlliams' head.
