If a Big is any good, they 100 percent of the time go to a big state school. There have been studies on why the rich schools always get the talent. Or opption b) he recruits Mr. Got Issues Big Body with a lot more skills but with either social or criminal record history. This could be either a freshman or a transfer. But, with my own eyes, i have seen the Flyer fans on this blog respond emotionally about how inappropriate it would be to recruit someone who does not have a pristine record. The backlash from fans and the administration would be immensely overwhelming. Both the coaching staff and the kid would walk into a fire storm. This would probably be unfair for the kid, as well. So, what is an appropriate level of baggage? Apparently, being a partial academic qualifier is appropriate for the fan base but a criminal record on a kid invokes memories of dumb and dumber from Columbus Northland high school. Or opton c) recruit an undersized skilled player and “coach em’ up” and hope for the best.

We have had this discussion before. How about option C, a guy who is a good citizen, needs one to two years to develop and turns into one of the multitude of decent big man examples not at a Big5 schools. Richmond has now had two straight, Dayton had one in Steve, Loyola has one, VCU has had a couple, Davidson has one, Bonnie's had one, etc.
