Surround guys like Cornish, Cofer, Davis, Thompson, Richardaon with guys like stokes, Hubbs, Lyle, looney and Lindsey.
VCU is better coached IMO. I like Martin but I think they are better coached than our guys. Probably not right of me to say it. I like Martin an hope he is here for a while but I just feel that way.

Ok...so instead of simply saying we need more highly touted guys, I believe we need some solid guys who fit our system. We were a bubble team 2 years in a row with a couple 4 stars, and some unranked players at the bottom of the roster. I'd like to see the couple studs (Hubbs & Stokes) and surrounded by solid players who fit our system. My worries are more the bottom of the roster than the top, I'd like to see the Reese's, Q's exchanged for guys more talented but who fit our system.

We have 2 five stars on our roster this year, how many teams in the country can say that? How about the SEC? So JMO, but I think we are doing just fine with the highly touted guys. We aren't Kentucky and I don't expect us to recruit and field a roster like they do, maybe I have a defeatist attitude, idk.

I agree, just like Calban mentioned with Wichita and Greg Marshall...he's a better X and O coach, but Martin beat him didn't he? Talent can overcome coaching deficiencies, we have more talent than VCU and Wichita State combined.

That's where Martin has got to get better (which he is). It was his fault we had those unranked guys at the bottom.

Martin may prove with some of his latest recruiting that he has a knack for finding the under the radar guys.
Maybe it's just me, but from watching them, Cofer and Davis will excel as front court players with a little strength and conditioning training.
both are vastly under rated.

Oh I agree with you. I didn't read the other thoughts after I posted that. Prob should have read them first. Makes me think what could VCU's coach do with our talent. Talent can overcome better coached teams sometimes. I wouldn't put it to the test all the time though.

Calipari.
Look what happens when he doesn't get a top 5 class.
Now compare this coming season.
Will be back on the wagon.

He will have a very talented team with some of the talent that didn't go pro and the new talent coming in. That will def help him. If he doesn't win the sec with the roster he has next yr I'll be shocked.

Oh I agree...that's why I'm happy about every ranked guy we get, the way I see it we are flipping the roster over. Instead of our 7 and 8 guys being unranked 2 stars, they're gonna be top 100-150 3 stars, and I feel good about that.

I think you're right....early reports from Pratt are that AJ is tearing it up. Drawing comparisons to JP.

Exactly, definitely will be a flip of the roster. Will be great having a bench that we won't worry about.

Dont be shocked by anything in sports today..

But it really will be a disappointment if we arent ranked most if not all season, make the dance, and win a couple.

I'm really exited about AJ. I think we've ended up getting a good one in him.

We def should be ranked most of the season barring injuries. We should get at least to the sweet 16 with what talent we have on the team.

Prince? Was kinda hoping AJ would be another banger body inside. JP played more of the 3 than the 4, right?
