Default Sampson gets first commit

Brandon McGee to Indiana

Interesting quotes:

McGee: ''[Crane coach Anthony Longstreet] thought it was a rush decision. He thought I should take a few more visits.''

Brandon's aunt, Lomita McGee: ''There might be something leaking out that he's taking a visit to Iowa. Brandon doesn't want to do that, and that won't be necessary."

''Longstreet is used to being a little more in control of the recruitment. It's the biggest thing with him.''

Longstreet, as some may recall, was also the high school coach of Kansas freshman Sherron Collins. Others may recall my strong insinuations that Longstreet played a rather unscrupulous role in delivering Collins to Kansas, when Collins himself said last July that Illinois was his favorite.

If you read between the lines on the quote from McGee's aunt, you should be able to see why all the things I've said on that subject aren't merely sour grapes.

Thank you Anthony Longstreet. Sherron will look great in Crimson & Blue.

Really? I hadn't heard that one before.....

For the record: In regards to Sherron Collins recruitment, Longstreet encouraged Collins to go the Late Night at KU. While there Collins wanted to give Bill Self a verbal but Longstreet advised him to not make a spur of the moment decision. So a few days later he commited to the Jayhawks.

Illini fans love to make excuses for Weber and his lack of ability in recruiting. This is no different. You have Gordon, for now. I'll take my chances with Rush, Wright, & Collins. Thanks

So we're not even gonna wait a full calendar year before we revise history, huh?

Go ahead and take your chances. I'll love ours next year with Pruitt, Randle, Semrau, Smith, Carlwell, Gordon and McCamey. 2007 should be KU's year; 2008 should be ours. We'll see how it goes.

As far as Weber's "lack of ability" to recruit, that's so tired. Go back and look at Self's track record at Illinois, in terms of the caliber of players he was recruiting. How many McDonald's All-Americans in three years? One. How many guys that were ranked No. 2 in America? None. How many Top 100 players? Seven- a whopping one more than Weber has landed.

No, thats tired.

I like Ku's odds against Illinois. This year, next year, and every year after that.
