    Yes that was a bit different. Williams and DeCosta I think both ranked higher. As it goes in recruiting we will see. If the both did go to Tennessee that would be huge.

    Yes, this time they will decide while on Knoxville campus that Williams will go somewhere (insert any 4 other schools) and DeCosta will go to Louisville. ;)

    We will see. If they both go to Tennessee that's a #1 class. If not I hope atleast one does.

    Tennessee could get four #1 classes in a row and still not make the final four with Holly as Head Coach!

    So would you think a big football win would sway recruits? Excitement of it all maybe?

    Never really thought about it like that..... but it was a evening/night game..... sold out crowd of 60,000 plus.. great atmosphere..... probably walked through the tail gating section on the way to the stadium.

    on one hand, sure beats going to a UConn football game, on the other hand it just reminds the recruit which sport is really king on campus

    Yeah, not sure what to make of Lolo's recruitment; she had committed to Texas in late December. And, then, in June "opened up her recruitment". She still attended Texas' summer camp a week or two later. Doesn't appear as if Texas is still involved with her.

    Important note... with Carter and the other post player both committed to Mississippi State it's highly unlikely Queen Egbo (has the Bulldogs in her final 4) commits there.. her other finalists are Baylor, FSU and Texas I believe. The path is clearing for her to go to FSU... which will take the seminoles out of the race for Nelson-Ododa...

    I'm not sure that's the right assumption. Not sure how each of Egbo's finalists would user her in their offense (Center / PF / both). That could be key, as well as the depth in the frontcourt.

    MSU now has 4 verbal commitments; they could be full (unless there is attrition). Same situation for Texas, although we are expecting some possible attrition. Of course, MSU has two front-court verbals, while Texas only has one. Baylor has one, as well. FSU has all backcourt verbals.

    Interesting that Queen took her first official visit to Texas on 09/01, but has not taken any others since. They are most likely scheduled already, and still plenty of time to take them before the early signing period begins/ends. But, most recruits take their multiple visits in consecutive weeks, or at least every other week. Miss. State had their huge recruiting weekend this week in conjunction with the LSU football game, but Queen was not part of that. Guessing FSU has a huge football weekend coming up; not sure about Baylor.

    FSU has home games with NC State coming up this Saturday, Miami on 10/7 and Louisville on 10/21.

    Baylor has a really bad football team this year, having lost to Liberty, Texas-San Antonio and Duke this year, with no wins so far.. This is a result of the Briles debacle, recruits/commits leaving, a year of "caretaker" coaching by Jim Grobe and the resulting continued recruiting disaster, then the subsequent inability to attract a big-name "permanent" coach. They do have a big football weekend coming up this weekend vs. Oklahoma, but I doubt their performance is going to impress any WBB recruits.

    I recall reading a quote from Ann Strother in which she wondered why schools were taking her to football games on recruiting trips. "I'm a basketball player."

    I'm sure recruits enjoy the atmosphere of big-time football games, but the decision is about basketball (coaches, teammates), academics, etc.
