I just posted Rivals ranking of the 2014 recruiting classes.The data shows that the Cards have the fewest number of four and five star recruits of any top 20 school. We have only one 4 star recruit and no 5 star guys. By contrast Kentucky has seven 4 star guys. And we are very nearly at the end of our recruiting limit while many big name schools only have 13-17 recruits listed. They are obviously expecting to feast on the many five star guys who have yet to commit. (There are only five 5 star guys currently committed.)
I have every confidence that Coach Strong can both recognize and develop talent regardless of rankings.And I recognize that these rankings are less than perfect. But I am confused as to why we aren't attracting more of the higher profile guys. It would seem that with our success as of late, our facilities, our move to the ACC, and the reputation of Coach Strong we would be very attractive to these higher profile guys. Anyone have a thought as to why we have so few?
