Just one less to concentrate on at this point....maybe two if Williams chooses Wva. Not making any point, just saying that Coleby s no longer in the picture but Aki was recruiting him. I think Pastner is recruiting Nichols. Not sure who's on Williams. I don't think Coleby would have affected the Nichols position anyway. I think they would be looking at Williams and Nichols as a 4.

Right. Not even many Memphis fans flew to see that one. I wouldn't have gone to Starkville unless I was an MSU fan.

Agree on that, but it's a little late to turn it on is my point. What I was saying is it was telling Memphis staff was still recruiting 3 bigs, Tennessee staff hasn't contacted any and is only pursuing Nichols...that was my point, that they must feel damn good about their chances or theyd atleast be looking at backup plans.

In fact, their back up plan they had in place, they informed him not to visit that they were pulling the offer...he has since committed to Minnesota.

And Nichols isn't a MSU fan, so why'd he go...

Uh-oh...closet Vols fans!!!

Oh I understand what you're saying but it's not smart to put all your eggs in one basket. I dont' care how sure you are of signing a player, things can always change. Maybe they won't in this case but surely Martin has a backup plan.

He knows people there, he's being recruited there and it was the closest decent game around........and his sister was there. Going to the football game is not very telling. I still say he's leaning to UT but I dont' put anything into going to the game.

He did it with hubbs and Nichols, hubbs worked out nicely. I agree typically it's not smart, however, maybe Austin has informed CCM of his intentions....

If something happens where Nichols doesn't come here, ccm doesn't have a sure fire back up and will likely monitor some guys and sign someone in spring.

I don't put much into it, just busting people's chops...and his sister was there because he was there.

He could've easily attended the Vanderbilt game, they're recruiting him...

Yeah, maybe, but I'm talking anything......injury, etc. Good to have a B/U plan and I'm certain that Martin has something in mind. There's always transfers and JUCO players. I feel certian that's what Memphis will look at if Williams and Nichols fall through.

Tells me staff for Tennessee still feels real good about Nichols...if I heard they were here or there watching this big, or contacting that post...I'd wonder a bit about their position with Nichols...but the fact the staff hasn't waivered at all says a lot IMO.
Tells me two things:

1) As you have stated in the recent past, "you never stop recruiting". UM will recruit 'til the whistle tips off the 2013 season. As you well know, AN's recruitment is not affected by D. Williams; again, per BTO, "we'll take both".

2) UT has 12 months to correct its mistake should they lose AN. And if Stokes bolts for the NBA, you will need a BIG or two. And you lose one of the reasons you feel AN favors UT - no Stokes buddy/buddy.

Apparently this needed to be merged, my bad.
