We often talk about how easy it is to get recruits to commit to OHIO if they visit during spring in Athens... I would have to imagine that Santa Barbara has similar seasonal advantages


I've seen crazier things happen.

Nope. I believe even Kenny Kaminski was rated higher (well, slightly higher).


As pointed out previously, it would be Walter Luckett. You donít get much better than #1 rated in the nation.

Next week; too much excitement for one week in April.



Feels like a matter of when and not if at this point. Heía now liked the Ohio Menís Basketball accountís post about the Cornish commitment as well.

Yes and no. He had blown out his knee during his senior year and the big boys backed off. In terms of his impact as a freshman, he fell short of what Trent accomplished.

The point is he was coming to OHIO regardless of the status of his knee problem. The history of his recruiting is a very interesting one. I believe there are a few on this board who know the inside story first-hand. I only know about it second-hand.

As I recall Walt was quoted, when he was recruited, as saying something along the lines of wanting to be a big fish in a small pond. Perhaps FG would know more about that.

That was THE COVER!!! I remember back in the day when it hit Logan's Bookstore. We had such high expectations. Think of it, the National High School Player of the Year was now a Bobcat!!! The first year was rough though, watching Walter dragging that surgically-repaired leg behind him for the first half of the season. The first really strong offensive game I remember came well into the season, against Kent State at home. It literally was the difference between night and day right from the start of his sophomore year, as he dropped high-arching bombs from all over the court scoring 31 in the home opener against a good Big 10 Northwestern team; I believe we lost by two in OT. Those were the days...

LMAOOOOOOOOOOOO

The timing of this couldn't have been more perfect. Well done, sir.


Donít worryÖI donít throw shoes. Clearly there were recruiting services who employed folks who had trouble with their eyesight when it came to evaluating The Whiz. As someone else pointed out, The Whiz in HS was 6-8 inches taller than most guys he went up against. After watching him play for 32 games and struggle just to catch the ball and set a non-moving screen, itís apparent that 4 star recruiting ranking was based on people falling in love with The Whiz being a 7-footer than skill.

I remember Walt was quoted as saying that, CatsUp, and alot of other things--like most of us when we're 17--that we probably really don't mean in the big picture. I grilled Walt about this very thing for more than 30 years. I always contended that he would have gone to Chapel Hill to play for Dean Smith at North Carolina if he hadn't tore up his knee in high school. Most of the big schools wanted him to red-shirt as a freshman; he wanted to play. It worked in Ohio's favor that was the first year freshman could play on the varsity. Prior to that, freshman had to play on the freshman team, so that decision would have completely been off the table.

Walt resided in the projects in Bridgeport, CT, a rough, tough environment, with a Hell's Angels biker bar literally across the street. He always did and continues to contend that he fell in love with the campus in Athens, as well as the people, just like I did coming from suburban New Jersey. For decades we would reminisce about our days on campus. He never had anything bad to say about the experience.

So I've gotta believe him, CatsUP, that the "big fish" aspect wasn't the primary motivational factor for him coming to Athens. A big factor in our favor was that our coach, the late Jim Snyder, was quite a gentleman who Walt had great respect for.

And one more thing: to the best of my knowledge, Ohio DID NOT buy him. Over the years I became close to the entire Luckett family--from mother Joan, the late father Da (Walt Sr.) and Walt's three younger brothers. I saw first-hand how they lived back then--never was there even a sign of newfound prosperity-- through recently. Walt always said he wasn't bought and I do believe him. He came to Athens because that's where he really wanted to be. And he has no regrets. Trust me when I say this...

Keyshawn Hall officially to George Mason.

George Mason also added CMUs Nicolas Pavrette today.

Might imply they're no longer in the Myles Foster sweepstakes?
