Discussion in 'Butler Recruiting' started by the_speakers_lab, Apr 23, 2019.
Liking this interest a lot. We’ve got some connections down there that could be very useful in this recruitment.
Emerson is in ATL. He watched All Ohio Red
Basketball isn’t the only sport having trouble. Football recruiting needs to step up too. Yet another year of zero draft picks. Smh. Too many low major guys.

Tucker instead of Smits?
He’s 216th though, I’m not sure that’s good enough for you.
In addition to watching the main teams, coaches have also watched the younger teams from IN Heat & Elite and The Family...
Brown playing right now, yesterday went for 7/4/3 in a loss in the morning, the afternoon did not have player details (they lost) this morning he had 6 pts and an assist in 14 minutes. His team has been, um, less than stellar. But he got 20 minutes in one game, 14 in another. The 1130 am tip box should be out in a couple hours. Hopefully if Emerson is here he's taking in some of Brown as well and showing him some love. That flame burns pretty brightly right now, I hope we can lock it down before the ACC gets too involved.
DePaul signed 3 four star recruits in their 2019 class. DePaul. Do you like being last in the Big East?
I don't want Butler to be last in Big East recruiting, but I am not sure I want the staff looking to DePaul for inspiration, either:
I don't look for inspiration. I look for a staff who's good enough to recruit talent and develop players. Add Charlie Moore to that list and they've simply been doing it better than us.
Not the kind of "better" I can endorse:
Pick another BE program then. Nova has 4 incoming guys that are 4/5 stars. X has 4 incoming guys that are 4 stars. There's nothing wrong with having high expectations when you're competing against those types of programs.
Remember, we signed up for this. It's the national stage & high major basketball. How that's waaaaaaay too unrealistic for some people is sad.
If you are expecting Butler to compete with Villanova in recruiting in the near future, you really are crazy. That is just not happening.
Also, what are you even talking about!?! Below is the list of players LaVall has recruited to Butler.
Khalif Battle - 4 Stars
Jordan Tucker - 4 Stars
Bryce Golden - 3 Stars (chose Butler over Georgetown, Illinois and Syracuse...)
JMM - 3 Stars
Markeese Hastings - 3 Stars
So you’re upset a couple 3 star guys aren’t rated 4 stars by the internet? That’s your take?
Maybe have some faith that LaVall is better at talent evaluation and roster construction than yourself?
