    That's one of Snow's thoughts that Furst, Kaufman and Lander would all end up at different schools.

    Yeah it would be nice to land Kaufman and Aminu Mohammed. Best case scenario there. I also think Indiana has its eyes set hoping on a specific transfer that hasn't put his name in the portal yet. Just a feeling I get.

    Congrats to those B1G teams that made the elite 8 can’t say I’m surprised.

    There’s a bunch of different sim models.

    The only one sim that matters is the 2k 2008 sim. Can watch full games.

    Word on the street is Top 50 Center Cliff Omoruyi is going to commit to Rutgers tomorrow. He would be Rutgers highest rated recruit in the Rivals era

    Pikiell has won at every stop, that man can coach. He's building something sustainable at Rutgers, and I'm a fan. Rutgers now gets 100% of big ten money, and it'll be interesting to see how much improvement they make. Maybe Rutgers will end up being a great addition to the big 10, at least in basketball, after all.

    JC ball expected to drop soon. Global pandemic makes it more likely Todd will stay stateside.


    That will be the best Big Ten recruiting class on paper since when?

    Off the top of my head, it’s well short of the OSU class with Oden and Conley.

    You guys should hang a banner since it’s the closest you’ll get with Fran.

    Please.

    Must say I didn't expect that.

    At KC UW hangs only F4's and the lone 1941 NC banners.

    But then we're a hockey school and we have a bunch hockey championship banners to make things look nice at KC.

    So I guess we don't need hoops S16 banners.

    MSU guys, Emoni Bates is a finalist for Gatorade player of the year as a Sophomore, along with the #1 and #2 recruits in this class. People have said he is the number 1 recruit regardless of class right now as a Sophomore. He will more than likely reclassify.

    That 2021 team is already poised to be great. Add him, oh boy.

    Based on 247sports' class calculator - probably the best/only way to objectively compare classes - here is how that class compares to other top B1G classes in the past 15 years:

    1. 2006 - Ohio State - 70.00
    -- 2020 - Michigan - 69.63 (w/ Christopher)
    2. 2010 - Ohio State - 69.22
    3. 2016 - Michigan State - 68.72
    4. 2020 - Michigan - 67.77 (w/o Christopher)
    5. 2007 - Ohio State - 67.68
    6. 2013 - Indiana - 67.30
    7. 2007 - Purdue - 67.28
    8. 2011 - Ohio State - 67.07
    9. 2018 - Maryland - 67.02
    10. 2015 - Ohio State - 66.38
    11. 2014 - Ohio State - 66.37
    12. 2012 - Indiana - 66.29
    13. 2012 - Michigan - 66.20
    14. 2007 - Indiana - 65.77

    Crazy that MSU has only had 1 single top-14 class, in the B1G, in the last 15 years

    In terms of actual collegiate production, I would bet that this UM class falls short of the baby boilers.

    I'm not expecting him to recruit like K and Cal, but with his clout, I'd definitely expect him to out-recruit the Matta's, or at least on their level. So I guess Izzo's recruiting oftentimes puzzles me.

    Don't look now but Schiano is doing some nice things on the football recruiting front too. The B1G East may be getting tougher....or it may offset MSU who very well could fall back to the John L Smith days.

    I think Izzo hates it, and I don’t think MSU has as much clout with recruits as it done amongst fans. In 2018 and 2020, we didn’t really even go after a single 5 star. We rarely recruit nationally well either, the only 5 stars we ever get are Midwest kids.

    In 2019 we went hard after multiple 5 stars and landed none. I can go over countless 5 star guys we pursue and almost get but don’t. Carey, Jabari Parker, Isaiah Stewart, Josh Jackson, Swanigen. And that’s just recently.

    Izzo generally prefers to just get the 4 star instate guys he knows he can get and be done with it. Our 2018 class was made up of four 4 star instate guys and Aaron Henry who’s from Indiana

    What’s weird is OSU’s class has a guy that is a three star on both sites but one has him 3rd nationally and the other 13th nationally. What’s that all about?

    In terms of actual production it would be impressive for them to top Michigan’s 2012 which on the court was as successful as anyone.

    McGary, GRIII, Stauskas, LeVert, Albrecht

    2012/13: national championship game
    2013/14: big the championship, elite 8 (with an injured McGary)

    3 first round picks.

    There were a couple odd national class rankings that I noticed as I was putting that together. Not sure if there are some bugs year-to-year on some of those older rankings.

    Rutgers picked up a crystal ball from Evan Daniels for top 50 instate prospect Cliff Omoruyi. Would be Rutgers best recruit in the Rivals/247 era.

    He’s committing tomorrow

    A bunch of guys have switched predictions or put in New ones for Big Cliff to RU in the last few hours.

    He's committing at noon. Can't imagine announcing an 9am local time if it were ASU

    Reading about him as a player makes him seem like a Rutgers kinda guy. Tough as nails. Seems like he would fit right in.

    If he does commit, huge for your program. Keeping highly regarded in state kids is a first step Pitino and Chambers still haven’t been able to do. Regardless of what happens tomorrow, Pikiell has Rutgers moving in the right direction

    21 class the top player in NJ appears to be
    6'8 PF 6'8 210 lb Trey Patterson #30 overall. if Pikiel can keep him instate Rutgers will be a real force in the BT, all it takes is keeping the 1st one then the others will follow.
