Have we changed with it, or we just doing the same old thing that hadn’t worked real well in the past?


I'm optimistic that the 3 and 4 year player will still be needed and the most beneficial to all programs once this new reality of NIL and the open portal calms down a bit. Especially in basketball, some of these kids enter the portal never to be seen again. Eventually, hopefully, the kids will get wise to that and stay where they are. Building your program with freshmen you recruited will always be the way to go, and fill in gaps if you have to with transfers if need be.

You don't really need to look any further than what Texas State did last year by not signing a single player out of high school and relying solely on transfers and JUCOs. Hint: they were not good. They did a similar thing this year, though I think they did sign a couple high schoolers this time and even got a guy from our Bobcats.


Kids will not get wise that the portal does not work out for the majority. 1. They all believe they can play at a higher level and should be playing more. 2. They have adults with no experience giving them poor advice.

One of friend's sons started wrestling when he was about 10 years old.

The kid was decent at the youth level.

But his parents, neither of whom knew much about wrestling ,were convinced he was going to be the next Dan Gable and get a full ride to college.

Right now he's a Junior in High School.

Again, decent wrestler.

Wrestled a few matches at Varsity, but not a starter.

The kid loves the sport and wants to continue in college.

I told his parents, he should choose a college for academics and try to find
a program that fits his talent level.

You nailed that one, Billy.

If this means more recruiting responsibility falls on Tim Albin the program is in worse shape than I thought. I've heard him speak many times and have yet to hear a coherent sentence.
