Anderson do you just live in negativity? We've got some momentum on the recruiting trail, just enjoy it.

I love it - I come to the Proving Grounds and all of the recent posts are in the Basketball Forum!

We have not gotten a player from Porter Gaud, but then again we had not gotten anyone from the Fort either. Until Dakereon came on board this year.

I love the idea of a 6'6" Point Guard, and James is stronger than Dozier. He would come on board when Rah is a Junior and give us a totally different look with his size.

But we need to snag a few in-state guys in the 2019 class and it sounds like Frank is doing his best.

Do we have any ace recruiters on our basketball staff like we do in football? Do they get ranked like they do in FB? I remember Scott Cherry being a very good recruiter for us in the past until he went to NC State.

That would be Chuck Martin. He's definitely the ace on this staff, he was the top recruiter on Crean's staff at Indiana and has been rated as a top 25 recruiter in the country in the past. I also heard that part of the reason we landed Bowen is due to his prior connection with Chuck from his Indiana days. Shingler was supposed to be better than he's been so far by a wide margin and Perry Clark isn't known for his recruiting ability.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe Chuck Martin is a big reason we were able to get Bowen interested in transferring here. He brought in some good talent when he was at Indiana. He may still be getting his footing in the southeast, but given his history, I think he'll be able to bring good talent here.


And Cherry didn't go to NC State. He went to be head coach at High Point.

As an accomplished sales manager, if Im CFM, I go to these kids and try and sell them on a package deal. Local boys come play for local college to bring home a NC to the local college. At least try to sell them on that, you want get all of them but you may at least get them talking to each other about how big they could be in the town of Columbia and beyond.
Think of it. Mama wont have to travel many hours to go see the baby play, Mama probably want have to pay for a meal when she eats out as long as you are in college. Mamas seats are ring side instead of in her living room in front of the TV ect ect.

Has football ever made it to the equivalent of the Final Four? There are 3 times as many D-1 basketball schools as football, so the top 25 equivalent in basketball is the top 75, which we are almost always in.

Scott Cherry left USC to be the head coach at High Point.

I just have to hear crap from Moo U fans all the time about how USC will never have the success of Clemson. I'm just a realist when is the last time the Gamecocks ever struck Gold in recruiting twice? If we get those guys outstanding but we never get the great players cause they all believe they can be the next Jordan at UNC.

They can talk all they want about basketball. USC 1 Final Four. The furthest they've been in the tournament is the Elite Eight and they only reached it once. So we've got the advantage in basketball.

Unfortunately I think they'll have a lot to shove in my face on the 20th. Frank's tried his hardest though so I guess it's not over til it's over but we could get Simons. I just have high expectations I don't ask for a championship every year but a competitive team across all sports. Our current men's team isn't awful just need a little more athleticism and experience.

Clemson's program isn't above ours. If they want to talk crap talk about how they missed the tournament last year. They haven't made the tournament since 2011. You can either listen to them talk crap about their mediocre basketball program being ranked or you can just tell them to get back to you when they've hit a Final Four. And our team is still pretty competitive, we're not going to be able to win pretty but we should be able to win.

The success of Clemson in MBB? Even with them being 14-2 currently, CFM has a better winning % than Brownell has, and Brownell took over a program that Purnell took to multiple NCAATs his final 3 years, while CFM took over a dumpster fire thanks to Horn. They are struggling to have our kind of success, even when we're not having much of it.....

Having Bowen and hopefully another top player will turn some heads.

Ask them if a school in the middle of nowhere can bring in talent why can’t the state of SC flagship university do even better, especially since we now have one of the best talent evaluators and recruiters in the country.

They’ve had an inferiority complex for over a century. Sort of a little man syndrome.

Only because of Affirmative Action - the SEC was limited to two participants. Clemson went to a "Top 4 bowl" game with the same record as us, worse competition, lower ranking - and loss to us head to head.The big bowl games stopped being so big when the playoffs started.

I saw Josiah James play in three games in a local tournament in Charleston a few weeks ago. He was consistently the best player of the entire tournament, better than c/o 2018 teammate Aaron Nesmith, a Vandy commit. He has handle, can distribute, shoot, play D, great energy, smart and is a long PG. Hope he's a Gamecock

This is sounding good. Frank wants a Point Guard, he'll get a PG!
