    Saw that IU offered Cole Swider yesterday. With all the intersections with Chrabascz/Chris Herren, does anyone know why we haven't gotten involved?

    This is good. He's a solid player and (hopefully) he makes it to Hinkle first.

    Edit: Also, VCU must have more guard minutes available if they are getting a visit. Makes me think that Thompson isn't off the board for them either.

    Charlie Moore is going to Kansas. He left Cal to be close to his ailing father in Chicago. Guess he's closer.

    Listen Butler first when what schools have contacted him. Hoping to set up a visit to Butler.

    "Im hoping to maybe set up a visit. They think I could come in and" (cuts off bc I do not have full access :( )

    Wright has also mentioned possibly setting a visit up with Butler.
    "I’m hoping to maybe set up a visit," said Wright of Butler. "They think I could come in and play as a freshman, so it could be a great opportunity for me if Butler is the right fit."

    Darius Bazley decommits from Ohio State. Hope Thad is buying extinguishers in bulk for that dumpster fire.

    I get what you're saying...but I also think that coaching staffs don't emphasize class balance as much as we think they do.

    Good point FUK. Class balance is a consideration concerning a program's consistency and continuity. BU's balance got of whack a few years ago but the program has been fortunate to find players that seem to reload more than rebuild. Having the ability to get quality recruits along with never knowing when a player may decide to transfer, tends to make me think that although balance may be ideal it's not as important as once thought.

    The Grad Transfer increase the past few years has sort of given HM teams an "out" if they have a year or two of improper class balance. Now for MM and schools that cannot count on attracting grad transfers at a reasonable success rate, I'm sure class balance is a much larger concern.

    Net/net, It's probably something they think about, yes. But I doubt it's ever a deciding factor in any given recruitment.

    While personally I prefer a more balanced approach, I think the success of schools with very high turnover rates via leaving for the pros or merely transferring to the greener pastures, attributes the change in philosophy. Couple that with the pressure coaches feel to produce, certainly diminishes the need for balance. BU has made that transition from MM to HM with only slight bump considering...

    He definitely needs a new thread. So do a lot of guys. I'm slacking. I'll get a few up tonight before I go out to watch some of these guys tomorrow and Sunday.
