    Well if he keeps up with recruiting 5 star players each season then yes I do believe that he will be considered an amazing recruiter. I've already heard that he has gotten one of the top recruits for either '07 or '08 to commit. Hopefully more will follow in his footsteps and commit the tOSU

    Im not sure. what about Duke? They are always a Dynasty almost every single year. And the 1970's UCLA Bruins? They must have had good recruiting for that sensational dynasty.

    But Matta is a great recruiter!

    I would agree that thad belongs close to the top. I hope he continues to persue who he wants and always gets them. If he does then he belongs at the top of the list. Now bring us a basketball championship.HAHA

    Haha yeah. Add the little cherry on top of our ice cream mountain of sweet skills. Recruiting the best talent does you no good if you can't win the big sha-bang.

    Not very often but I am still very happy that we had him for at least 1 season, same with Conley.

    Is basketball recruiting easier?

    Is basketball recruiting easier or harder than football recruiting? It seems as if we are able to get pretty much anyone we want and the same goes for football.

    With players leaving earlier with basketball does that lead to easier recruiting?
