I don't believe that I did tell you not to recruit Brunson or Evans or DJax. I will tell you that you absolutely have to win a PG recruitment though so it might pay to put more attention on the next level of guys as well. We made a lot of offers but it appeared that we held out for better compared to the kid from Kansas who would have been really solid (just as an example) relative to Tate.No I don't want you to do that, but at the same time don't come tell me not to recruit Brunson, Evans, DJax in favor of some 3-star PG without knowing who that would be. There is a reason that a PG is rated as a 3-star (e.g. Tate).
I have absolutely no problem with Groce going after Brunson, Evans, D Jax, three PGs that we ended up as runner ups. Eventually, I think Groce's success at the position will depend on getting a B1G quality PG, who will most likely be a highly ranked player (5 star or 4 star). It is OK to say recruit 3-star PGs as backup plans but at the same time there are no infinite scholarships. For example (before AC left), who do you not want to recruit (from our commits) in favor of a lower ranked PG? Tough decision. And they would be better than Tate?
I do not disagree on PG skills. I have mentioned many times that in my experience, ballhandling and PG skills are the hardest to develop. You have either developed those before HS or not. But I did see a little of Abrams and thought he would be better as a PG, contrary to what I had posted when we recruited Luther and DJ.
