Pair Johnny Flynn up with Paul Harris at SU and you have a nasty team, not to mention power forward Dante Greene in the mix. Greene is a Carmelo Anthony clone. Look out for Cuse's second championship in 4 years.
Oden may be good, but I think he's vastly over hyped.
I personally think that Purdue got the best recruiting class out of the state of Indiana, while the Indiana Hoosiers got the best recruiting class in the Big Ten this year all around with Jamarcus Ellis, Eric Gordan, Eli Holman, and Brandon McGee
i think that kyle singler made a HUGE, HUGE mistake by not going to Kansas, instead going to Duke. What a foolish mistake! with the kind of trouble that Duke University is in right now, why would anyone want to pass up playing at a big time college like Kansas.
Bill Self is a really cool guy, the school is ranked 2nd in the country and every year has the kind of talent that every college coach would die for, but mr. singler, good luck and if you ever meet Kansas down the road, remember this "rock chalk jayhawk" baby!!
Kansas a better place to play than Duke? That's funny!!! Even with the problems at Duke right now, Kansas will never be better than Duke. Better Tradition, better coaching, better competition, and better exposure. Kansas has good school, but they can't campare to Duke.
As an LSU grad, I can't be disappointed with anything in the article, but it seems like Clemson should've been considered for the "Dragging In-State" in S. Carolina. As one of only 2 major powers located in the state, they should've done better than getting just 2 players (USC got 5, and they don't have nearly the b-ball history & tradition that Clemson has).
Derrick Caracter was ommitted from the NJ rankings. Despite his well documented "issues" most recruiting services still ranked him as the state's best prospect in the class of 2006. Number 2 was Earl Clark. They both signed with Louisville - so perhaps the Cards deserve more credit there.
CUSE! I hope Paul Harris sticks around to play with Flynn... Greene is going to be nasty... and next year's team... with Devendorf, Harris, a healthy Onuaku, Josh Wright... plus the sick freshman class - PRESEASON TOP 5... CUSE!
Syracuse is on top of the world in recruiting. Dante Greene, Johnny Flynn, just to name a few paired with the likes of Harris and Devendorf. Let's see how Dick Vitale will take this one or if he will jumpo on the ACC bandwagon like always!!!!!!!!
Bill Self is the Ron Zook of College Basketball...bolted U of I for the money in Kansas and has shown he can't do anything with more talent. Weber on the other hand turned Self recruits into a National Runner-Up...oh yeah, and big win over ORU, oh wait...
Purdue won Indiana, hands down. Their 2007 class haul borders on ridiculous...and not only did they recruit these guys, they did it cleanly and fairly (for an example of how NOT to do this, see Indiana University's courtship of Eric Gordon).
Oden is good, but how good is a recruiting class when you know the only good player you got is a one-year wonder?
