I think that’s how the headline should have read. Interesting investigative story on recruiting, AAU clubs and recruiting services. Comments from Coach Lutz, included.
[QUOTE]West Coast club team power Pump N Run has been the summer training ground for many notable college basketball players, including North Carolina’s Larry Drew II, who could start at point guard next season, and former Duke player Mike Dunleavy Jr. [/QUOTE]
[QUOTE]North Carolina was among the programs that paid $600 for Double Pump’s service in the 2007-08 fiscal year, and Double Pump co-founder Dana Pump said Duke also is among the service’s many longtime subscribers.[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE]At least eight of the 14 schools subscribed to a service connected to a club program, and from the records it was unclear whether some other vendors were also tied to club programs.[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE]The services tied to club teams were a small portion of the subscriptions expenditures ranging from $4,825 to $17,330.90. A typical school subscribed to 12 to 15 services, but Florida paid for 29 services.[/QUOTE]
