[quote="tundra, post:5, topic:888"]One more thing. Our present coach has recruited 2 pretty good players from Texas. Why, did they come to PSU from across the country? The final answer is that Ed SOLD them on the good points about playing at PSU.[/quote]
Probably had something to do with they are flawed basketball players and we were they only high major team interested in them. I know Babb had Iowa as well but at the time we probably more stable of program. Frazier was pretty much a mid-major recruit mainly I am going to guess because of his size. Now they are is nothing wrong with getting these types of kids but you cant have a whole roster of these types and win at this level.
Flawed basketball players? I didn’t realize there was a group of perfect basketball players out there we should’ve been pulling from instead.
For the record, according to scout: Babb had offers from Iowa, Iowa State, Bradley, New Mexico, North Texas, TCU, and Tulsa. Not exactly Duke, but not exactly garbage programs either. And Frazier’s offers were from Stanford, Santa Clara, Penn, Rice, Harvard, and Colorado State.
Seems like all these programs are okay with flawed players, also.
