Interesting.  That's the first time I really heard Marquette was a player.

Yeah, I hadn't heard that either...does strike me as odd.

Maybe it’s more that the recruiting reporters and insiders don’t know as much as everyone thinks? That’s not a shot at them, I love what they bring, but unless you’re in Archie’s office you can’t possibly know what is actually going on. 

Who knows how bad Archie really wanted Morton? I know none of us really know. 

Just to reiterate, this post is not a shot at insiders, I always appreciate what they bring and enjoy when they bring it.

Welp. Next. Seems like a good player and kid. We'll get ours (as we have). Reminder....Archie snuck in and in 90 days took Phinnisee and Damezi from Painter. We get the Indiana targets and this will be forgotten very quickly. 

I’ll give you Damezi but RP was never going to Purdue. If Archie hadn’t swooped in, he would’ve probably gone to OSU or maybe UVA.

In his 13-14 years? Wow. 

His best recruits rankings wise for the most part were in-state guys. A lot of his out-of-state guys  ended up being under-ranked like Vince Edwards and Carsen.

Not going to lie..I really liked this kid. I will be happy to follow him at Purdue at least...just hope he has his worst games against us. 2020 was pretty thin...hoping 21 had multiple big fish for us! Congrats.

He had a Stanford offer.  I think not.

He wanted a good education and to actually make the NCAA tournament.

OUCH.....  Low Blow

Haha am I wrong though? Without looking, I feel like they haven’t been consistently good since the Lopez twins were there.

Yes.  Let's face it, if education is your deciding factor and you have a Stanford or Ivy offer, that's where you go.  I'd say the same about Leal who also has a Stanford offer.  As StL suggested, a good school with a good basketball program is probably a better overall idea if there is more to your decision than academics.

Just calling it like I see it. They’ve only made the tournament once since 2008. 

First read, your post looks like a shot at IU.  Lol

Yeah seems to me he was the #1 target.  If you care to comment was the staff surprised that they didn't land Keion Brooks?  I think they thought he was all but locked up at one time.

No disrespect- there was no evidence that Morton was 1a 1b recruit.  As said before, Archie and his staff are VERY tighed lipped and no one really knows.  Anyone can text thoughts or tweets, etc.  Honestly, the only insider to Archie might be Snow.  This fan base should listen to him more.

They have a history together.....just saying.  He might not be giving info, but he is the one guy he has a relationship with that goes back before IU.

That's a funny thing to say since it is pitchforks over at peegs directed at snow for both just generally being a douche and for saying things like this...

"When it comes to Ethan Morton, Indiana appears to be in the top three with Michigan and Ohio State."

"Personally, I feel [Keion Brooks] ultimately comes down to Michigan State and Indiana

Snow has no clue what is going on and acts like a POS when he gets called out on it.

Very well could be.  Im going off of podcasts I listened to where Snow was interviewed and they talk about it.  So, maybe he isnt one to listen to.  So far the past year very few people have been correct.  What happen to the days where Insidethehall use to provide quicker and more info then peegs....and free?

Yeah, ITH has slipped IMO, but I am more than content to get info from them or here or wherever than pay again after my subscription runs out.  The track record of the subscription guys tells me that more often than not they are either guessing or getting a lot of bad info.

ITH is solid imo. I read there a few times per week.

Until a kid commits, they are all just reading tea leaves.  That is why I do not get why people get so irritated with those who share info here like SS and 0708.  Have you never paid for one of those sites before?  They do exactly like the guys who work for rivals and scout.  They talk to people around the program, they see what the kids are saying, and then they share what they know at the time and put a guess on how in or out IU is with a kid.  When I was subscribed to Peegs, those guys were wrong All. The. Time.  I am happy to get a little rumor for free around here.  People pay Peegs $10 a month for the same info.

To be clear, he was referring to Stanford, not IU.

Boiler too classy to take shot st IU for sure  but unfortunately it does apply to us as well. He is not one to come over and run our noses in it too much. Good get for them and I really don't like Morton to PU

If they have a relationship I'd suggest Archie finding a new voicebox. Snow has always been neutral to negative on IU...and given his performance for the Brooks family this past season I'd say if Archie did (as you say he does) have a relationship that one would be terminated.
