It's crazy shit, what a lot of these top recruits go through. Wouldn't shock me of some of these kids haven't done a piece of school work in their life before college. Ever read Play Their Hearts Out? Most of those kids had ZERO chance to grow up with any stability. Future NBA talent is not enough.

There's a CBS poll with nearly 100 college coaches and today's question was, Which player's recruitment is perceived dirtiest of past decade?

It's interesting to see which players show up and the common ground between many of them.
John Wall's was always pretty fishy. I was surprised when Cal locked him up, especially as early as he did. Decent read, wish they would have put in more quotes though.
