Figures. A four star ESPN 100 kid that I was excited about and we lost out.

Getting a little tired of always landing the 1-2 star kids. Common Major! SEll the d@mn program!!

You sound as if 4 star recruits are lined up to come to Charlotte and all the coaches need to do is sell the ones they want. My guess is its not that easy.

Not at all, and I completely agree that it is not easy. However Major gets paid for doing to primary things:

  1. Win / get to NCAA
  2. Recruit players that can help in achieving goal #1

Now if he can accomplish #1 with the 0-2 star kids then by all means. However I think he could do a lot more wining if he could get higher rated kids.

Would you rather Major chase after him with little to no chance in landing him? ???

So you think we would be more successful with better players?

Good God man, why have you kept this to yourself so long??? We must tell our coaches!!!

It didn’t work too well for Lutz. I just think selling our program today to the blue chippers is a tough sell. It is not surprising to not land a 4 star recruit.

I would rather he not lose the recruit in the first place.

Lol, the kid blew up and we are really in the position to get mad when we don’t land a 4 star kid. Might need a reality check.

I would to - but let’s be realistic about who our coach is and how much we are willing to pay. Sure if we paid some crazy amount we could get a top flight coach in who could close the deal on 4 and 5 star kids, we don’t have that budget though.

What we have to work with is a lower salary and focus on a coach who can develop kids.

This is beginning to worry me. We need some commits. I don’t even feel like we are very close with any of these players yet.

I am expecting Worthem to sign on his visit. Especially looking at the other offers he reportedly has on the table.
