  • College Coaches Chasing NY Area Recruits

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    From John Calipari to Mike Krzyzewski to Jim Calhoun, the biggest names in college coaching have been beating a path to the doors of some of the top high school basketball players in the New York metropolitan area.

    The NCAA contact period runs from Sept. 9 until Oct. 5, so college coaches use this time to watch prospects during open gyms and to make their recruiting pitches to kids and their parents during home visits.

    This is the critical period when relationships can be made or broken and future NCAA championships can be determined.

    • AZ,

      Tell me YOU knew this was coming.


    • I am referring to the discussion about Todd Lee and his FIVE STRIKE rule,at Kentucky.

      Remember the JOKE about Kentucky having a FIVE strikes instead of three strikes and you are OUT.

      There was mention about Kentucky having three NCAA violations….but, under additional review….THERE ARE FIVE NCAA violations.

      So, it looks like the Ball is back to the NCAA and Kentucky.

      Why didn’t Todd Lee EVEN know that Kentucky had FIVE violations?

      Sounds like Todd will have to TURN to Mitch for this……

      Imagine if the president of the Univ. does NOT even know how many violations it has DONE.

      Imagine if the AD of the Univ of Kentucky does NOT even know how many violations it has DONE.

      SOMEONE must of known…..WHO ? and WHY wasn’t Todd properly informed.
      Or was he?

      Lets see what NEWTON has to say today or tomorrow?
      CHANGE is coming……or already has started…
      Lack of Compliance Controls…..

      Some background on this…………..
      “UK men’s basketball team has committed five secondary violations within the last year according to documents shown from an open records request filed by the Kernel in accordance to the Kentucky Open Records Act. …”

    • West coast folks are also becoming more interested in the Kentucky violations…..

      Some good comments and..what will the NCAA do?
      Nothing or something……
