I kind of like this stealthy recruiting. We've all had conjecture, but it wasn't until now that there some reports of us going after Bragg.

Pass on Bruninga otherwise you're spot on.

Smith or Moore for Pickett and Bragg for Tilmon. I'd make that trade.

Remind me, would Moore be eligible right away or have to sit a year? Not sure cause he said he wanted to be closer to his father who had a medical history. But then again, it's not like Kansas is close whatsoever.

Mark Smith at 137 is just incorrect.

He'd have to sit. Medical hardship waiver isn't a thing anymore

Get your game face on coach. Get Orange Krush and Marching Illini in State Farm with the lights off with Kendall Gill at center court holding jersey #13 in the spotlite. Hit the lights with Orange Krush going nuts and the band striking it up.

Agree. Bragg as a 22,23 year old man is going to be a really good player. That one year off to bulk up a little bit and mature is going to be huge for him.

That slot needs a name attached to it though. The Khalid Lewis of bigs won't help us all that much, we'd be better off with a freshman.

Agreed. If we can get an impact grad transfer that increases the odds of an NCAA bid then go for it. If it is a minimal impact we are better off with a freshman and strengthening the future of the program.

Two picks today including one from MSU writer Sean Scherer who Sparty fans say almost always gets it right for Michigan guys who consider or have considered Michigan State. Wonder if Bowen is hearing Izzo is pretty confident about Smith.
Whatever, Tugs' recruitment has been one of the stranger ones over the last few years.

They all can shoot lights out in BU's offensive scheme.
