    Francis, I agree with you. But how much of an issue do you think it is for class of 2017 kids (like Duval) that 2017/18 is supposed to be JB's last year as HC and the coaching situation is unsettled after that? For any kid anticipating to be a 2 year + player, they can't really be sure who is going to be HC since Hop is not being announced and now there is at least some element of doubt when prior to March there didn't seem to be any doubt. If I was a 2017, 2018 kid I might have uncertainty about SU and you can be sure that is being exploited by our competitors.

    Dean, coming from you it is somewhat of a relief to hear the reassurance that eventually we will get good players like we always do. I think the program would do itself a favor if they were to provide some type of reassurance that Hop was going to assume the reins of the program when JB steps down. With the amount of uncertainty swirling around the program anything which would lend an air of stability could only help withing the realms of the recruiting world.

    Good points guys. I think once the new AD gets announced that we'll have some official clarity on Hop being the main guy moving forward when JB steps down.

    Still don't understand why we never showed any interest in him. Crazy good prospect here.

    He verballed to Washington. Nice pick-up for the less annoying Huskies.

    Any particular reason we stayed away from him?

    Everybody else on the east coast put a little effort in on him and he went to the same high school as Grant.

    Why did he end up at Washington and not somewhere on this coast?

    Washington was his first D1 offer after playing JV in his Sophomore year. They have an east coast assistant(actually coached Dion Waiters and Isaiah Thomas at South Kent), who is tight with the Fultz family. Fultz was actually big on Kentucky and Duke at certain points, but Kentucky had DeAaron Fox as their #1 guy and Duke went with Frank Jackson. The family was always puzzled about SU never showing any interest.

    Yep. Crazy thing is that at this point, Tyus hasn't shown the on ball playing making skills that we were expecting that a guy like Fultz is currently showing out but wasting over at Washington.

    I saw him in person just before Christmas. Really looked good. Imagine if he was playing for a head coach who knew anything about basketball
