    A look back at the 2017 recruits that had threads on our ButlerHoops board. Holtmann had just taken the job at Ohio State and LaVall was left to save the 2017 class. These recruits should have just finished their Junior/redshirt Sophomore season. Feel free to add any that I had missed or any recruits of interest.

    *I have always wondered how recruits have fared in other programs. Just for fun. I know some don't care and that is fine. As a high school teacher being out of work, I am desperately bored and looking for new content!*

    Musa Jallow - Ohio State:
    Jallow was injured going into the 2019-2020 season. He eventually red shirted and sat the entire season. During the 2018-2019 season:

    15 mpg

    Cooper Neese - Indiana State:
    Our old friend Cooper played in all 30 games for the Sycamores. He started in 15 of them. They were 18-12. Potentially a CBI/CIT team.

    Howard Washington Syracuse (looking to Transfer as of 3/14/20):
    This dude can not catch a break. Hoping he finds a nice home and a place where he can contribute for his senior season. Syracuse was 18-14 and looking at the NIT. He played in 20 games.

    Very interesting. Always wonder what happen to kids we missed on. Outside of Kyle Young it does not look like anyone was a game changer.

    Was the real interest and push to land Bede pre-AT committing? I think in hindsight they were both recruited for, and hoping to fill, the same need, and it sure looks like AT has done a much better job of a defensive first - strong facilitating PG.

    Losing Kyle Young hurt, the others were no loss. In Thompson the Dawgs what was needed, a point guard who could play defense and facilitate. I have to say it came out OK.

    It usually does, that's why I don't get frustrated or vent off about missing on a guy. KY would've been good, but the others, eh.
