I swear I wanted to to let everyone know last week about this but i been so busy with my own team. I think KBD is a good kid but his reasons for OSU is he said" it was his child hood dream to play there"!

Was this the "waiting for an offer from UK so I can turn them down and choose ILL" kid? I'm not sure I ever read anything concrete about that rumor. Maybe that's all it was.

I thought I was suppose to be extremely thankful on Thanksgiving because good news was coming. Is this one chalked up to the fluidity of recruiting too? Because by the sound of what illbasketfan said and what salty has been saying we were never "the clear favorites" and miles ahead of everyone else.

Still trying to figure out why OSU was his childhood dream.

That is interesting.... weren't some of the postings on here in the last week or so implying that he was potentially going to commit to us?

I guess we need to get a good season in, where kids can see the exciting style of play and competitiveness...then maybe we can become a dream destination for kids in Ohio

You can say that again. How many times can you say something with certainty, eventually be wrong, and still be looked to for "insider" information?
