Any else wishing that Schutt didn't shoot it quite so well this summer?

I have no knowledge whatsoever, but I just don't see us stepping up on this one. It would be so nice to have another assassin in town. Goode, I think will be, but probably not this year.

Corhen, Whitmore and Schutt, and a killer 5. Please make it happen, staff.
Do we have room for a 7 person class or are one of our 3 commits going to back out? Personally I don't think it makes sense to have a large high school class, better to add a few transfers, as much as I love the 3 recruits you mentioned.

With the way folks are transferring these days, I wonder if it even matters.

Take a 7 person class, b/c you're going to have 2-3 people leave every year guaranteed. This also allows you to continue to take fliers on guys (Giorgi).

I believe Underwood said to expect 5 man classes with all of the changes to transfer rules.

The 5th year of eligibility will curb that a little bit but I would say in a few years this holds true.

Though at the same time, don’t we typically recruit in some transfers? We were a net zero this year for example.

We also typically don't have any recruits yet..... it's not going to be too typical going forward for awhile. In BU we trust!

BU eyeing two local recruits for 2023! Christie's older brother (MSU) wouldn't give us the time of day. If we were drowning he'd throw us a bowling ball!)

Could Underwood take both Huff and Corhen and play Corhen at the 5? Wouldn't it get a little crowded with Schutt and Whitmore added to this year's recruits.?

I wouldn't consider Schutt and his near 40 inch (or higher) vertical "sneaky athletic". You can just call him white :ROFLMAO:

To be fair he didn't look all that athletic in the video that was just posted yesterday. Also, just watched the Peach Jam final yesterday with Brandon Miller so the athleticism scale may be skewed.

Yeah, my frame of reference is high major D1, not HS.
