I'm sure the autonomous P5 probably will propose and consider some scholarship rule that benefits only them.

The autonomy ruling was possibly the biggest farce in the history of humanity.

@RyanJamesMN
UAB grad transfer Nick Norton just committed new Drake Head Coach
I see a lot of Drake fans on twitter following Tremel Murphy
It would annoy me if he ended up there. If you go to the MVC and are a two year player. Bradley is ready to compete. Not Drake.

And meanwhile we will be battling it out with Hartford University for the services of some guy named Chudier Bile. Good times.

Drake added another grad transfer in Brady Ellingson. He’s a 6-6 shooting guard. Didn’t do a lot at Iowa but he is a good shooter.

Maybe a smart move by Devries to be competitive his first season and then build with younger guys in the fall.

I know everyone seems to feel you can't tell much from highlight videos. But I saw this guys video a couple days ago. I thought, I'd really like to have a player like him. He only had and offer from Omaha (He is a Junior) Well Drake offered yesterday. He really looks like a high energy player with a lot of talent to me. I have a feeling he will end up a high major player.

They’ll probably get this guy. Lightly recruited.

Good chance to show this video, which is only special for what happens around the 25 second mark imho.

Not incredibly impressed to be quite honest...

This is where you have the issue we had after our S16 run though...


You think after the F4 run that they should elevate their recruiting game, but how far can you go with that?

I think at least as far as recruiting goes the Valley seems to have improved as far as staffs this year.

I'm sure Loyola will end up fine recruiting-wise this spring, as Porter has always been able to get players. However, it furthers my point that you're usually better served doing most of your heavy lifting for recruiting in the fall.

I think this is undisputed. Anyone that denies this is out of their ever-lovin minds.

DePaul is a basketball pariah right now, so I don't look at that offer much different than an offer from Chicago St. They're the worst.

But if you go by biggest offer, they would be in the driver seat.
