    Foster was in high school; this is for college basketball players in 2020. And Bohannon was wildly inefficient in the 10 games he played.

    If those are within a 4-5 hour drive from campus, then sure. At least by the standard I was using.

    I think you should cut it back to two hr drive from campus.

    of course playing on a hip that needed surgery had absolutely no impact on that.

    going into this season Jordan comes in as a career dbl digit scorer, career in 3 point percentage of over 40% 89% from the FTL. plus he is a returning 3rd Team All BT player,

    side note he is also is on pace to break the all time record for 3 pointers made in the BT, he already holds the Iowa all time record and is on pace to lead Iowa in all time assists.

    this where a bird in the hands is better than 2 in the bush.

    as for Foster is playing in the 2020-21 season and if you are talking about last season then the 5th would be 6'10 Kriener.

    Ehh. Parents make 4-5 hour drives to see their kids play all the time. It’s a long day but it’s doable. 4 hours in the car, 2 hour game, 3 hours with kid after the game, 4 hours back.

    That’s a 13 hour day. Easily done on a Saturday and something I see done a lot at FSU.

    But Iowa can't claim Chicago when Illinois is, and we can't claim Minneapolis because Minnesota is, Nebraska with Omaha. Lets be realistic here, if all schools are subject to this rule.

    Florida's panhandle makes things weird for FSU.

    I’m guessing Syracuse would not be allowed to get NYC or Philly kids and probably not Buffalo in this scenario. So that’s basically Rochester to Albany and maybe down to Binghamton? The roster would be ugly. Oddly, we’d still have our starting backcourt, Buddy Boeheim and Joe Girard.

    I’ll just go with the state of Michigan, and I’ll count guys who left to go to prep schools.

    PG-Amauri Hardy (Transferring from UNLV to Oregon)
    SG-Rocket Watts (MSU)
    SF-Gabe Brown (MSU)
    PF-Isaiah Livers (UM)
    C-Xavier Tillman (MSU)

    Would be a really nice starting 5, with tons of depth down low, not so much on the wings though. You would have some nice pieces off the bench like Trevion Williams at Purdue, Brandon Johns from UM, Romeo Weems from DePaul, Isaiah Jackson from UK, etc.

    There are multiple schools in the same areas. That’s the nature of the beast. Think about UNC and Duke. UGA and GT and Clemson. The Big 5 in Philly.

    I think Texas would be first in line (like football during the Mack brown days). None of the schools in Texas have done shit basketball wise (or football for that matter).

    G: Joe Girard (Glens Falls)
    G: Buddy Boeheim (Syracuse)
    F: Naz Carter (Rochester)
    F: Isaiah Stewart (Rochester)
    C: Nathan Knight (Syracuse, 20 & 11 at William and Mary)

    That team could win some games, and that’s with a very conservative mileage radius.

    We're terrible because of all your teams coming in and taking our players, but for this hypothetical scenario I only have to be concerned with Loyola, Northwestern and UIC doing that. In this scenario we only have to beat out those teams to get guys like Zeke and Eric Anderson as opposed to trying to ward off Bobby Knight.

    that contradicts what you were saying earlier since there are other big schools closer to those players than Iowa is.

    Illinois doesn't get Chicago. There are at least 2 schools in the Big10 closer to Chicago than Illinois. 3 if the traffic is better from Madison than Champaign. Illinois gets Peoria area and maybe even St. Louis.

    Shit, I'd settle for So. Indiana, and Indy. Indianapolis spits out sickening talent. So. Indiana has done so recently.

    I didn’t say the players would automatically go to the closer school. I still had MJ Walker going to FSU, even though he’s from ATL and ATL is closer to Auburn or GT.

    What I said was, I wasn’t going to cherry pick the best players within 4-5 hours if that was already a person who FSU recruited and they chose to go to another school that was within the same range.

    Ant Edwards, from Atlanta, was recruited by FSU, and he chose UGA. I can’t go back and magically assign him to FSU just because he’s within 4.5 hours. UGA, also within 4.5 hours, gets him.

    However, CJ Walker went to Oregon. Which is not within 4.5 hours of Orlando. So in this scenario I assigned him to FSU (we recruited him), even though UCF, USF, and UF are closer.

    Is the Big East involved in this scenario?

    not that it matters since this is just a fun little message board game, but I don't think FSU should get any players from ATL in this scenario. G Tech gets those players. FSU has to stick to the surrounding area which extends till they run into another big school's surrounding area.

    At least that's how I interpret this thread.

    Ahh. I see what you’re saying. But that’s not how I originally interpreted it. I asked the OP if I could count Montverde and IMG (which are both closer to other schools in Florida but still within a few hours of FSU) and he said sure.

    Like you said, doesn’t really matter. Just a fun game to pass Rona time.
