    Absolutely unless needs dictate otherwise. JMM could have 2 years left if he chooses.

    I would. He’s got good size and athleticism for a wing with shooting/defensive potential. Take that and develop him over the next year since he likely wouldn’t need to see the court baring him playing out of his mind or a number of injuries.

    2 weeks in and we have had Ali, Turnbull, Phinisee, and Bates on campus already that we know of. When have we had this caliber of recruits on campus at the same time. This is going to be a fun and wild ride.

    This must be what it's like to be a high major program that people take seriously - I suppose I'll learn to love it. These 2 weeks of activity already top the few bright moments of the last 2 seasons.

    It's pretty evident the program is taking a step into more of a power 6 school. As it should have for years. If Thad can hit a couple home runs this weekend...we have ourselves a pretty damn solid roster all of the sudden.

    Is it “all of THE sudden” or “all of A sudden”

    Good question. Probably not one to ask a redneck from Mississippi though.

    So just to be clear- I am ecstatic about these visits over the weekend, Matta and his staff are legit and I like our chances of getting 1 to 2 commits in the next few days, I just hope we all can understand if nothing does happen and perhaps they don't choose to come here. What we can still celebrate is the fact that this staff seems to have no trouble getting guys on campus, and there's little chance that Butler will strike out on *everyone* they go after if they can keep doing that.

    No… I’m genuinely asking. I say “A”, but Willie is certainly not the first to say “THE”. I’m curious to Poll the board.

    I don’t think I realized how minor league of a operation we had been running until now. We have news like every day now.
    Granted it’s hot stove time but it feels like people care we exist again.

    "Of a Sudden" is correct. I've had similar conversations like this with my southern family.

    no kidding. It’s wild. It’s like we’re an ACTUAL power conference program and it’s fun as hell. Wanted to ask Jared what the overall board traffic has looked like the last month compared to the last couple years.

    I wouldn’t exactly classify people from Indiana as yanks…

    Besides, I’m a mountain man!

    Now we have to convert the news to actual meaningful progression towards winning, but I don’t know if it’s a stretch to say we’re getting kids on campus with the same frequency we were being “connected” to kids before.

    Also every single person on our staff has a resume that you look at and think, “yeah that person on paper is a Big East assistant coach.”

    In 2021 our three assistants had an average of 3 years d1 experience prior to being hired by jordan (all Lowry). Zero years HM.

    This years staff has 10.67 years experience on average as d1 assistants. All of them have either administrative experience at a HM, were head coaches at lower levels, or interim head coaches or a HM.

    Like what in the actual hell were we doing?

    Spent the last two days at Grand Park watching mostly 2024's while following a friend's son. I didn't catch full games of the 2023's, just bits and pieces here and there. Kyle Guy Elite has several guys that look high major.
