2021 four-star Kok Yat has committed to DePaul.

The Blue Demons now have the #4 Ranked Recruiting Class.

A lot of people have talked about DePaul getting all these good players.

But has anyone asked why these players are going to a school that has sucked for 2 decades running and play for a coach who has had 1 winning season since 2007

Only the rumors that their assistant coaches Hsu, Heirman have questionable tactics. Hsu's more publicized, but here is Heirman allegation

DePaul, St. John's, Providence, Seton Hall, and other high-major D1 Hoops programs would be ideal prey for the NCAA on one of its pound-the-chest, 'we wipe out corruption campaigns' that leave the true criminal programs untouched.

Yeah, something stinks. In addition to having an abysmal record with three different programs (Northeastern, Virginia, DePaul), he has never shown to be an elite recruiter. Now, all of a sudden, top kids want Leitao and DePaul?

He already began last season suspended due to a recruiting violation. I wonder if he knows this is his last opportunity and is just willing to throw caution to the wind.

DePaul has new AD, from U of Kentucky. New AD may be on totally by the books, but still knows how game is played in general given he was at UK. Probably would like to hire his own coach, and if there weren't COVID financial impacts to schools, may have moved even quicker. Maybe Letaio thinks he's got a shot at extension with the recruiting class.

The Big East is targeting Dec. 12 to hold its first conference games, sources told @CBSSports. Not all schools can commit to that as of today, though. The window the league is considering ranges from Dec. 12-21. Much to be worked out, but 12.12 is the navigational starting point.

This past season, Donovan Clingan emerged as one of 2022’s top-rated big men. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the 7-foot-1 big out of Bristol Central in Connecticut landed scholarship offers from nearly ten programs. He started the contact period just having six scholarship offers but that number doubled once coaches began recruiting him and speaking with him.

Clingan says recently he’s talked with head coaches from UConn, Notre Dame, Rutgers, and Georgetown.

I asked him what his relationship is like with UConn coach Danny Hurley, who was one of the first coaches to spark interest in Clingan, his answer: Great. He [Hurley] saw him several times this past season, capping it off with attending a game where Clingan competed against Hurley’s younger son.

“He loves my game and tells me choosing UConn would be the best decision of my life.”

Then you got the team-up scenarios that everyone attempts to come up with as guys are committing and being recruited by different schools. With that, I asked Clingan who he has talked about possibly teaming-up with at the college level.

His answers?

“Avery Brown, Kyle Cuffe Jr, and Matt Curtis.”

UConn working Cuffe hard apparently

Picked up Lindy's College Basketball magazine today and perused the Big East summaries. Pretty on-the-mark, although the final edit must have been a while ago since the late conference commits were missing. It minimized impact of Figueroa's departure and ended with, "St. John's will, once again, be a pain to play against, and could well find itself on the NCAA Tournament bubble."
