For those who missed it, Jaemyn Brakefield was offered by Duke over the weekend and essentially committed on the spot. 

He's been removed from the OP - need to really turn it up on Greg Brown/Chris Moore now

Wow. The Blue Bloods still have the IT factor bigtime.

I'm hoping one day we can get a real this guy is the best player hands down on the class. Then one day if we get him we use him correctly on the big stage.....then we can be legit. Somebody like Mikey Williams or Emoni Bates in the future. That's the only way you make the ultimate big step being on top of recruiting

From an interview recently w CBP, he made a comment about recruiting these kids for 3 years and the big schools do it for 3 weeks and get them.  He seemed legit disappointed ... m assumption was he was referring to brake field.  Gave me the impression CBP thought we were in great shape then poof.  Cruitin against the blue bloods is a tough game.  Maybe I over read his comments.

Even if we don't get the top shelf can't miss NBA prospects I think we are going to be just fine. Bruce knows what he's doing and has an incredibly keen eye for what will work in his system even if nobody else sees value in a particular guy. But boy I love being in on these elite recruits. I can't wait to see us continue this trajectory we are on

Yep

not to mention, in general the lesser rated guys will be around a couple years and that is more fun as a fan when they succeed.

It is WAY more fun to win with these guys.

My preference is mostly really really good players who stay 3-4 years and become great teams with a chance to win the big dance but I wouldn't mind a one and done every now and then to join the nucleus of  really good players.

Not a bad plan to stock the shelves with good players who will be around several years and not have to rebuild the starting line-up every year.

You probably did, what with him having recruited high guys before this season and (obv) getting rejected for the most. I guess this'd be different with these recruits actually letting him in the door versus not even answering him back when Auburn wasn't very exciting. This would hurt individuals involved more than before. I still think BP has far too much experience in the system for this to hurt him long term though

It is tough to see how many guys we've gotten close to, just to lose out to a UNC or Duke, this recruiting cycle. But that also goes to show how much more progress we need to make. Alot of us fans are just happy to be here, but this should give the coaching staff and powers that be more evidence they must keep pushing up
