    5 data points suggesting he knows how to evaluate talent is more than the data points suggesting he doesn't so far. Maybe that'll change but what we've seen is all we can go off of

    My buddy who is a regular on the IU boards was telling me about Henry after the April evaluation period based on what the guys at Peegs were saying about his play. There was even an article that more or less said Archie needed to see him play and would offer then. That was before Lavall was even hired.

    And I say less to lose because you are more willing to make an offer that you might not normally make when you are hired in July. It makes sense that we were aggressive with offers. Does that mean that there wasn't a level of due diligence? No but there is no doubt that the staff hit the road and had to fire off some offers quick.

    It's like the SAT - which ones are not like the others?

    This does not surprise me. He said weeks ago that he really liked LJ and Butler. Super super happy that Tha Ohio State didn't make the cut! X and Butler make the most sense.

    With Patrick Ewing it makes sense. But does he want to rebuild a program?

    This is totally a Trey Lyles situation. Put us on his list as a courtesy.

    Butler always talks about how they recruit certain guys that fit the Butler Way and how only certain recruits are attractive to the program. I thought Jaxson Hayes fit that exact mold for both. I think we would be a lean here if there was any recent activity between him and Butler. But there hasn't been to my knowledge.

    Even if it's only as a courtesy, there is always a chance the other 4 schools get hit with sanctions prior to his decision!

    This not even close to the Lyles situation. He was offered in Jr. High by some schools. Consider we were the first major to offer I don't believe this is courtesy listing. Not saying BU wins this battle but again we are a legit contender.

    Again I agree with you Seadawg. We were the first with Hayes and he has visited Butler on a number of occasions and has spoken glowingly of LJ. I'm not surprised we are still in the hunt. Moeller kid. The kid is smart and knows he needs to develop his game. This is not someone bent on being a one and done. My only hope is if he doesn't pick Butler then he doesn't pick X.

    The end results could be similar to Lyles. JH has shown an interest is staying fairly close to home. BU is the farthest but it's not significantly farther. I still think his interest in BU is genuine.

    Tbh if he goes to UK, he prolly never sees the court considering he'll be playing alongside 10 5 stars every single year. I think he knows this and will ultimately choose X, UT, or Butler. But I see X getting him

    I share this sentiment but I ultimately think he picks UK. He does have to consider that he will be constantly recruited over and his playing time could be limited. I think he will still pick UK though because of the exposure to NBA scouts (I think UK has a NBA scout day in October) such that playing time will not not the deciding factor.

    I hope I'm wrong and that LaVall's offer before the others and the high potential for lots of playing time resonates with Hayes. Hopefully Barlow is playing a role, too.

    It would be nice to be the beneficiary of someone wanting to go to college close to home, but not too close. Since Butler is usually on the losing side of that equation.

    What do you want Barlow to do? Just because they went to the same High school doesn't mean he should be breathing down his throat. He already sent a tweet at him and that should be good enough. If anything, Nate Fowler should be the one playing a role. So much has changed in the past years, Barlow wouldn't be much help to Hayes. Nate could reach out and talk about his transition to Butler and status of the locker room/team right now more than anyone.

    Should he pick BU instead of Kentucky, that would be a remarkable event.
