Default 2017 Momentum in MBB/WBB recruiting

So as a fan who knows far less in the basketball-area of recruiting as compared to football, how has this year helped or supported the momentum of the next few recruiting classes for both SC teams? I get it's a pretty generalized question, but for those that closely follow basketball recruiting I'm sure you've seen some changes so far.

It definitely won't hurt. For Frank it takes some serious ammo out of opposing coaches when recruiting against us such as "You won't make the tournament in your career" "You can't win at USC" "You'll never see a Final Four" ect. It won't help this class, we're going for a grad transfer and then we'll be done with 2017 recruiting class. We don't have much space in the 2018 recruiting class but it could help there depending on attrition, obviously the big name is Zion Williamson but our Final Four run won't hurt us when it comes to other good players too. As for the women, Dawn is going to work on the trail and looking to put together a ridiculous class to close out 2017.

Both programs should benefit greatly.

Frank should be able to convince more instate players to stay home and play for their local school.

For Dawn, SC is now a powerhouse program and her recruiting will soon reflect that. Our 2017 class is pretty much set.. but 2018 and on is when Dawn will really benefit from this new status as an elite program. Like Dawn said at the parade, "this is only the beginning"...

With Dozier not declaring for draft is a good indications Zion is coming. Will know for sure if we keep Dozier by April 23rd. It will have an impact on Zion's decision.

Not sure I see the connection. Zion would be playing for us after next season. If Dozier does not go pro this year, he will almost definitely go pro after next season. Zion and Dozier have a very unlikely probability of being a gamecock together. Right?

In basketball, I don't think it's as big of a deal, but a Final 4 run never hurts.

Apparently, Frank Martin doesn't take too kindly to the negative recruiting. See the article below for details...

Default Re: 2017 Momentum in MBB/WBB recruiting

This run will do nothing for this class but I expect us to sign some good players next class. If you look at the amount of offers our staff gives out it's very low compared to other programs, I think that's because frank looks for specific players that he believes will buy into his coaching approach. I don't really see one and dones walking through the door soon but just being in the conversation for Zion is great. The state has a bunch of high quality players coming out including Christian brown and juwan gray in 2019 who are both from Columbia and if we could convince them to stay home it would be great

I don't see anything happening for this class that reflects our recent run. More than likely, Holden (transfer) and Beatty will be our biggest additions. It's a positive for future classes though and gives us credibility with Zion.

I still think Zion isn't coming here though. He doesn't strike me as someone who cares about the whole "staying home" angle.

For someone who doesn't care about staying home, he sure brings it up a lot.

Getting to the final 4 is just as much of an accomplishment (if not more so) as winning a Naty in football. 4 wins vs quality teams compared to 2 wins.

I agree; we are jacked for both basketball teams. Of course, the women were already number 1 in attendance, but the men will move up from top 20 in attendance to top ten next season.

Words are just that.

Ultimately, I see him going to a one-and-done situation like Kentucky or Duke.
