Yeah, they seem to be. Ike was a 4*, ranked #63 nationally by 247sports out of HS.
Our Eli Wright was also a 4* and ranked #80 out of HS. But Eli 'only' a guard--not the 7-footer of our dreams!
Lots of kids flounder their 1st year in high major D1 hoops.
We shall see.

Chicago, do you pay licensee fees to Paultzman for the use of his patented phrase "We shall see"? ;) :)

Trump uses it too, but word is he has reneged on paying the fee.


The other difference is that Trump is a loser.

UNLV coach, Marvin Menzies, was interviewed on radio earlier and was very enthusiastic re the recruit from Cameroon. Described him as a fantastic athlete, who should be a big factor. He said they had to beat out St. John's and Gonzaga for him.
I am surprised the kid chose Unlv, since the power forward spot is spoken for and they already have three other players over 6-10 competing for center minutes.

Kid knows a UNLV staff member & the HC was front and center on his recruitment.

Too bad for us, and good luck to the guy, but it does seem that UNLVs 'post' is a bit crowded.
Unlike ours--despite the rumors!

Interesting that this kid apparently chose Seton Hall over several high majors at least in part because of a connection with their new AC Tony Skinn, who is also from Nigeria. Just another example where having multiple staff members helping on recruiting is important.

Well, we hate to admit it, but Willard has done a better job than anyone we have hired in last 15 years.

Agree JF. Cannot but, to this point.
Willard’s last 4 years at SH have been very solid: 84-48, with over 20 wins the past 3; but he was 66-66 in his first 4 years, and 150-114 in his Hall tenure so far.
Because of our emptied roster in CM’s first year, I do not believe it fair to attempt to compare Mullin to Willard’s first 4 years at this point.
“We shall see”...down the road.
