So tell me where I am wrong:
We have 13 scholarships. A player gets 4 years. (Redshirts can change the number).
So every 4 years we POTENTIALLY turn over 52 players.
Now some stay and play 4 years, many do not.
So if someone does the math, we may have lost and recruited, what, 25 players in the past 4 years? Again, I don't have the number but in the last few years we had a lot of turnover and we had guys who only played one or two years.
So, my point is this:
MOST recruits, at least to Akron, do not work out. In the sense they leave before the 4 years, they never get any minutes, they get "convinced" to leave.
So missing out on any particular recruit is not a big deal, unless it happens to be LBJ, or maybe Zeke I guess.
No one ever knows how a high school standout will do in D1, and we actually played a pretty high level of hoops last year.
AND, when a sought after recruit commits, that might dislodge a transfer from that school!
So I don't lament the loss of a potential recruit, we have a good coach who finds good players.
