Maybe it’s just me, but I’m kind of getting Crean flashbacks with our approach to this 2020 class.

I totally get where you’re coming from, but the priority kids have had offers for nearly 3 months now. Can’t wait on em forever and not actively recruit others.

For sure, he has to keep recruiting.  But getting strung along by our top targets while we toss out a bunch of offers to “diamonds in the rough” seems like a movie we’ve seen before.

I've brought it up and been criticized but Archie offered the in state kids....gave them ample time to say yes. They haven't. Eventually it's time to go.

Our top targets have said they’d ideally like to have a decision made before their season kicks off.  Today is July 20th.  Nobody is stringing anybody along here.

I'm not sure what the complaint is.  It sounds like this guys is exploding.  He hasn't even started his senior year.  He's a 6'6" guard wing combo, athletic and can shoot.

I'm with you. Don't see the problem here at all.

It's July. The AAU season is just ending today. Nobody is being strung along.

I looked over the UI board this morning and I thought I saw where Underwood has extended 55 offers to 2020 players.  CAM may not be stingy with offers, but he's not passing them out like candy either.

I looked at Rivals and only 22 of the top 100 have committed.  Too early to hit the panic button but I just hope that offering another 6”5-6”6” guard is not due to getting negative feedback from Galloway and Leal.

I don't think it's something where anyone is hitting panic button but the more offers that go out for the same type of kid....it does make you think twice. I like it by the way.

We have to get old and stay old (Beilein approach) and this 2020 class has 2-3 guys with 3 years written all over them if not 4 years. Was watching some old games last night on Youtube. The 02 throttling of Bill Self top 10 Illini team was beautiful. You had 3-4 year guys in Fife, Hornsby, Moye, Coverdale, Odle, Newton...peppered with Jeffries. All good size and can shoot. That's what I think this 2020 class has to be. 3 guys who will play minutes right away but also who will be around for a few years. Lay the foundation there and in 2021 you can pepper the OAD guys.

This kid reminds me of the type of player Crean might have jumped on.  I mean that as a compliment. Maybe Archie’s got a bit of that in him too, and that can be a good thing.

It’s disingenuous to not give Crean credit for finding the likes of Oladipo, Sheehey, and Anunoby.   None of them were ranked highly, but they were athletic and rising talents with upside that Crean understood.  And they developed under his watch.  

Maybe Geronimo can give Archie a feather in his cap in recruiting somebody under the radar who can emerge.

I’m sure Archie sees more than I do but this kid looks very raw to me....kind of a smaller Justin Smith. Not seeing it.

Who knows how this kid would pan out, but since you mentioned Justin Smith...he was actually spectacular in his highlights (high school).
