I think everyone knows and realizes balance is important. But it isn't the most important issue with recruiting. If you have the chance to fill a scholarship with a very good player, you worry about class balance later.

As for bringing in a Juco, it will help balance, but they have immediate needs at the position and it is a lot harder to find a freshman big man that can come in and immediately contribute. The year after next when Yancy is gone, they will have a Jackson as a junior and Gaines as a sophomore, and Ellis as a freshman or sophomore. They need another big with experience or else they will be rough in the front court. Getting a JUCO big man now to get adjusted with Yancy as a senior is critical. Even if the classes were balance they would still be trying hard to bring in a JUCO.

No surprise at all here. We got in on him late and on this link it says he says he had purdue, osu and iu hoodies up and no uc so that is odd but i wasnt holding out hope.
Tom Crean is on an absolute roll. His 2012 class is absolutely loaded with an addition of gary harris very likely. And he has Cody Zeller coming in next year they are going to be top 10 in a few years.

Mick has to focus all his energy on Macon and Hammons... big time priorities.

i agree with you on that but what about polythress i see on espn he has interest and we have offered. he seems like he could be a legitimate scorer down the road. and at 6'7" thats a player we need. he seems like a more polished shaq

Vastly underachieved at IU. Rumors were swirling that he and Ronnie Johnson might try to end up at the same school. Personally I'd pass on both, lock up Torian, find a 5th year transfer, and be able to use 3 scholarships in 2015.

Ditto. Give me two guys who can play this year and give us some scoring.
