I trust this staff and their ability to recruit. I think we will be ecstatic with this years class

Ultimately though, I think the staff's evaluation of players, and how they fit together, matters more than what outside recruiting services are grading recruits. We can only judge them based on the recruits so far, which I'd rate as pretty good. Not perfect - they've obviously had some misses on the initial transfers in Hurley's first few years - but I also don't think this is unusual vs. other programs. Nobody bats 1.000 in recruiting, even Duke, UNC, any other big program you want to name. That type of comparison - Hurley's success rate recruiting vs. the rest of the A-10, vs. the rest of NCAA tournament teams - takes a lot of energy to do, if the sample size to do so is even large enough.

I never really get caught up in stars - 4 stars means the big schools were in on the kid early.

The notion that stars mean nothing (or very little) is very false. Yes, there will be guys ranked in the Top 50 or Top 75 who will be busts, and yes, there will be guys in the Top 150 or even Top 200 who will become stars. But the probability of getting a stud or key piece around 150 or 200 is much smaller than landing a guy around 50. The data correlates almost perfectly with this thought.

Over the last 2 4 years cycles (13-17; 12-16), the worst player ranked 48-52 out of the 10 players was Anton Gill, who went to Louisville and then Nebraska (and still has a year of eligibility left). The second worst, at least statistically, is Daniel Ochefu, who became a pretty key piece for Villanova in their frontcourt. You could also probably argue Dominic Artis, a player for Oregon who transferred to UTEP after being booted from the Oregon program, but he did average 10-4-4 between the 2 schools.

Just looking at 148-152 over the same cycle, there were 5 recruits who became nothing (Zach Coleman, Jevon Thomas, Houston Kessler, Brandon Channer, and Josh Fortney - who to be fair I don't think ever played D1). The other 5 guys - #1 Donte Clark who just grad transferred from UMASS to Coastal Carolina, #2 Malik Morgan - averaged 5 and 3 at LSU and transferred to Tulane where he averaged 11 and 6, #3 Junior Etou - transferred from Rutgers to Tulsa, #4 Travis Hammond - played at Long Beach St., #5 Torren Jones - transferred from Missouri where he averaged 2 and 2 to Fresno St. where he averaged 11 and 8.

It's a long-winded way of illustrating the different type of players that typically are found between the two groupings and my guess if that if you went and sampled 73-77 and 198-202, you'd probably find similar differences between the two groups. Ultimately though, if the staff identifies the right guys and are good talent evaluators, they can hopefully eliminate the misses.

What's your point? I'm not worried about talent on PC's roster. They had a Top 50 PG who will be a freshman this year (Langford), a Top 50 SG who will be a freshman next year (Reeves), a Top 100 F who will be a sophomore this year (Diallo), a Top 100 F who will be a freshman this year (Watson), a Top 125 C who will be a freshman this year (Dickens), and are also still heavily recruiting a Top 50 G (Duke), a Top 75 G (Locke), and a Top 75 F (Days). Not every guy you recruit is going to be a 4-star, Top 75/Top 100 guy, I just wouldn't feel as confident if Cooley was recruiting 11-13 Kris Monroe's.

OK. Nowhere in your long-winded post did you say there was room on the team for lower-ranked players or, like Bryce Cotton, unranked players.

Agreed but he has now brought in two top 50 players, two top 100 players, and a couple right outside the top 100 the past couple years.

We haven't had one since Terrell.

The good news is I think that will change with our class this year. We certainly need it.

Step 1 is Tate.

100%. I'm not saying "ha Cooley has got all these highly rated guys...what an idiot!" He's done a fantastic job selling Providence College, which isn't an easy thing to do, IMO. He gets a ton of credit from me for that. But really, in evaluating the job a coach has done recruiting, you should forget about stars and rankings and look at results. Which is why I don't get why our fans are complaining. (OK, that's a lie, I do get it - it's because our fans love to complain - but I strongly disagree with it.)

I too think it is a weird sell for PC. So Cooley must get credit. Some types here hark on the budgets. PC wasn't always recruiting at its recent level.

I feel like we are recruiting above our 05-07 level, especially some of our stars/right on par with it.

We really have a good thing going that can explode into a run that will change things.

People on this board and in the A10 always think the team that was good the past year or two is unbeatable and everyone is chasing them. I think we are on the verge of that and depending on the next chapter could actually make that true in more of a sustained Xavier from 2006-13, than a SLU from 2011-13.

I agree. I guess saying Cooley has kicked our ass in recruiting is going overboard, but we have lost to them seven times in seven years.

I do think we will beat them this year and I love our chances of landed some studs in the 18 class.

Summary of some of the current targets from the projo article on Dana Tate commitment:

The Rams have four scholarships remaining and are chasing a host of targets, chief among them four-star Maryland power forward Jermaine Harris. URI is in deep water attempting to secure the services of the 6-foot-9 standout, competing with the likes of Kansas, Miami, West Virginia, Maryland, South Carolina and Xavier.

The Rams are also on the final lists of Maryland point guards Brendan Adams and Matthew Balanc and remain involved with New York point guard Anthony Nelson and Pennsylvania shooting guard Tyrese Martin. URI is also actively recruiting New York forward Souleymane Koureissi, Massachusetts big man Chris Doherty, North Carolina forward Joel Ntambwe and Massachusetts wing Philmon Gebrewhit, Tate’s Expressions teammate, among others.

The Tate signing should help our case with going after Jermaine Harris. Apparently we have a good shot at landing the kid, but he's stated that he won't sign until around November. It'll be interesting if Rhody takes the risk of waiting on him until then, especially as he continues to blow up. Keep an eye out for Philmion Gebrewhit, Tyrese Martin, and Anthony Nelson to be the next pieces of the class.

Tate is a big first domino in what I believe will be the recruiting class that either keeps Hurley here or see him leave at the end of the season. No shock to me to see Archie Miller leave after the most winning senior class graduate. If this class doesn't fill out well, bye bye DH. Here's to hoping we keep the ball rolling.

Not really, just letting those who are not in the know that we landed the Number 1 recruit in the Nation in 97.

So we obviously know the staff does a tremendous job evualating talent, their success rate to days has been down right impressive. So we'll obviously trust their evualuation during this critically important class but as fans we like to have fun anyway so who are your four remaining prospects that we're involved in that will get you most excited about and in what order?

They'd like to get two early commitments from the group of Adams, Balanc, Nelson , Martin, Williams. They'll wait to see what Harris does. If they don't get him they'll got to someone like Doherty. They'll keep the last scholarship open for a transfer.

Have we signed a good guy in the spring since Terrell?

Just wondering because waiting on Harris through November when you consider there is the spring signing period. = Jarvis and Jared (Really good haul).

Shall we keep the known official visit dates on the first post of this thread? Like we do for our upcoming schedule in the schedule thread? Just a thought.

Has anyone here seen Noah Fernandes play? He'll be a junior at Tabor this year and he plays for Expressions. I saw him for the first time in a game in Fall River last night. Very good player. I wouldn't mind if we were involved with him.

Noah is a great kid, remains to be seen if he's an A10 kid though, I would assume he'd be on the radar based on how this winter goes.
