We have 1 and done talent surrounded by experienced, fringe NBA talent... I can't think of a time that has ever happened for us before

Stans' last year...

Fringe NBA - moultrie, bost, sidney

1 and done - Hood.

Result- implosion due to them being coaches by a clown

We have a shot at

Abdul Ado. 75% chance

Mario Kegler, 5 star, decides Wednesday

De'ron Davis, picking between MSU and Indiana

You're getting Kegler IMO, Ado is 50/50 and Davis is a slight Indiana lean.

Wouldn't surprise me if you got all three

Davis spent the weekend in Starkville, and was very, very complimentary of Howland and the facilities and whatnot. He said on twitter that Indiana was in the lead, but he and Kegler have also mentioned playing with Herard several times too. So, we'll just have to see.

You can never know in basketball recruiting, honestly.

If you thought football recruits flipping was bad...basketball is 10x worse.

And even when you get em somewhere, transfers are way more common in basketball than they are in football. I will say this, tho, Indiana aint the program they once were. They have more history than MSU, no doubt. But they aren't the program they have been since they got rid of Knight. They've made the Final Four once and only won their conference twice since they got rid of Bob.

Transfers are insanely common, we usually get 1-2 every year. And Andy Kennedy is a wizard so they all play significant roles.

We got a 4 star (5 star in some networks) SG transfer out of Miami who will play next year.

Closest we'll ever get to a 5 star...

Basketball recruiting is very dirty. When there's only a few recruits out there everyone wants it gets crazy. Juco recruiting is the dirtiest though

Mississippi Juco sports may be more cutthroat than the SEC if you can believe that.

I remember when everyone thought the exact opposite.

It's a case-by-case basis.

Calipari might need experience since he keeps fizzling out with talent only.

They haven't gone public yet, but Netflix people have been filming a ton at EMCC and different schools and the word on social media is that it's supposed to be an "inside look" or some bobby_petrino.gif.

Basically, recruits VERY RARELY flip once they are committed mainly because big recruits typically commit and sign the LOI.

This was why we were so mad when Scotty Hopson flipped from us to UT. He got paid big time.

That being said, almost all the dirty business happens before the kid commit.

Kids get money and improper benefits starting in middle school.

Mario is ours to lose, Indiana got in late

Davis is Indianas to lose, we got n late.

We will see how it goes. You never will know much about what happens behind closed doors.

Percentages on Davis. What you think? 60-40, Indiana.

I think often the talk of "package deals" falls apart and guys go where they want but Davis is talking about it really late in the game.

If we get him I'll be thrilled, but our must get is Kegler. If we want to win next year we have to have an elite scorer to replace Newman

I think the decision has been made. He met with coaches and family yesterday and scheduled his commitment ceremony.

No use in speculating, it's over. Just have to wait and see.

I'm glad we got the last visit.

I'll settle for a championship every 6 years if that's the case. Unfortunately Calipari is held to higher expectations than anyone else
