    Butler is not going to get picked 9th. They're likely, kind of ironically based on this, going to get picked right next to Creighton at 6th or 7th (whatever way) with St John's worsening depth issues.

    I'm honestly not privy to Creighton's incoming class, but didn't they lose two of their most, if not thee, most dynamic players in Watson and Patton? I understand they absolutely worked us twice last season, but eluding to Title's point above, what do they have that demonstrably sets them apart from us (Foster/Khryi more or less = to Martin/Baldwin)? One fan does not represent their entire fan base, but this irks too much not to put my two cents in...

    Agreed. Luckily we don't have 1 dumbass "fan" that continues to post piles of hot steaming trash on multiple outlets of social media and message boards. That would suck.

    SJU will be better, but a quick look at the Caliente Casino NCAA futures has:
    Nova 40-1, BU and X 75-1, SHU 80-1, CU and Marq 130-1, surprisingly PC 225-1.... obviously that Creighton poster is not an oddsmaker!

    X is now down to ten scholarship players and I believe four graduate this year with only one commit for 2018 so far.

    Yep I think you’ll see us go after 5th year guys hard next year regardless of how we end up recruiting wise.

    Luckily our 6 returning players should be very very solid (Elias harden is probably the only question mark right now...and he was still a top 100 kid).

    I think Butler was following him and may have even met with him. He's a 6'3-4" shooting guard. Don't believe he fit our needs.

    He definitely fits a need and had some other good offers- not the first priority by any means but it's a good pickup- we've really been struggling this off season- I think its a combination of a lot of talent at freshman/sophomore levels and the staff casting too wide a net. Either way it feels good to finally have someone that will play mins next year in the fold.

    Went back and forth with Bridges and Macura, but I'm gonna give it to Macura since he'll be a senior.

    Not gonna take a stab at freshmen.
