    That was my recollection also but I was waiting for someone who follows recruiting a little more closely to confirm.

    I think the strategy SU pursued was for Huerter to go prep for a year so a schollie would become available. He obviously wasn't interested in that option.

    Absolutely was the case. I think coaches felt their were better players (Battle) that deserved the ships first, which may be true, and got surprised by the MR decision which had they anticipated would have always made a spot available in 2016 for KH. His value as others have said, would have been exceedingly valuable next year, given what we know now. Alas, it is what it is. Too bad. Kid will probably be All-B10 in a few years.

    It could be debated that Huerter would have been better use of a scholarship than Moyer if we look at it now. I'm not saying I would make that choice. While we didn't know that Thompson would commit, Moyer still may not play even next year that much if he can't play the 3.

    Well without Moyer there would be no Tyus Battle and without Tyus Battle there would be no two3zone image and without a two3 zone image there would be no two3zone. BOOM! In all seriousness I see what you are saying but I still believe Moyer's versatility makes him more valuable than Huerter.

    Getting blocked at the rim by a white guard. I mean how embarrassing. Only at Georgetown.

    NO.

    Moyer stuck with us after the sanctions were announced.
    He helped recruit Battle and TT.
    He bleeds orange.

    Huerter may be the better player now, by default.
    Let's see where we are 4 years from now.

    I wouldn't be so sure about that. Moyer is going to be a terrific player here.
