Just one more time I would love to see a very highly rated kid out of high school “pull a Walter Luckett” and basically say “you know what, I’m going to go to a good, albeit smaller Ohio program, where there are great coaches, who can continue to develop my skills, and a 13,000 seat arena. A place where I can be a big fish in a smaller pond and become a legend rather than just another great player who went to “school X” who is somewhat lost in history.” I’d anticipate he’d initially get more attention nationally just for making such a bold move. Heck, the player might even make the cover of Sports Illustrated. ;)

I suppose with NIL it becomes even less likely for that to happen in this day and age and would probably have to be someone with few financial needs going to school too. Uh oh…I think the potential population for this to happen is shrinking. Oh well I’ll hope and dream for it to happen anyway.

Not in this era....that's for sure.

But good for Boals to shoot his shot. We don't have a prayer.

Though rare, I think its still possible. The lure of being the player who puts a school "on the map" has to have appeal to some players. The key is finding that guy. I'm not as cynical as some on here. I still believe that players with that mindset do exist on the current landscape, be they few and far between. The key to our recruiting though is to continue to find those diamonds-in-rough and develop them. And, to try and narrow our focus those rough diamonds who when polished up will have some sense of loyalty to the polisher and his school. Those guys also exist, but they are a small subset of the rough diamond population. Recruiting these days is getting trickier and trickier.

The change that I do think provides a glimmer of hope, OCF, is the ability to transfer without sitting out. Perhaps a kid would think he’d try it for a year to see how it goes. Keeping them then becomes the issue.

He most likely won't get this one...but, from a marketing standpoint, its good for Ohio to be in the discussion on these highly rated prospects. I like that Boals goes for it.

Why go to a P5 and sit behind a bunch of 5th year Seniors when you can come take a gap year in Athens?


I've seen crazier things happen.
