First cycle of recruiting about to finish up. GL to everyone.

I'll take the second... I think my team should be decent this year, but knowing how they perform, we'll lose in the first round.

Longwood will not be a factor this season. The PIT might be a minor miracle for us. Most likely we end our 25-season postseason streak. I blame this on the last two recruiting periods happening during standardized testing, (I'm a HS teacher), and I couldn't put very much time into finding good players.....so we're taking a bit of a nosedive for a while.

I feel like the last two years didn't have any recruits worth taking in my area.  Fortunately, this year seems like a stronger class.

Don't know how I'll do, but I expect a lot of low-scoring games this season. Solid defense, but who knows what the offense will look like.

I am SUPER ecstatic about my class. If my ineligible comes, I will be even happier. West Florida is about to turn a corner. Look for us in the postseason in a couple of seasons.

EDIT: sorry, wrong account.

I was very pleased with the guards in this recruiting class. After 2 straight seasons of horrible guard options they were much better this time. These 2 guards along with the bigs I signed last season will be tough in a couple of seasons.

Incarnate Word hoping for a bounceback season.  We may run some interesting lineups this year (we've got a SG that profiles as your average D-II PF).  Single digit losses and sneaking back into the NT are the goal.

After two 'where is Bellarmine?' seasons....18-14 (PIT champs) and 18-11 (1st round NT loss)... we hope to bounce back to national prominence.  With 3 seniors and 5 juniors, I'm optimistic

Ira Wilson is present and accounted for. The other two guards will start from day 1, so they grow.

Another single digit win season is in our future, but after that... well... I've got high hopes.

I started recruiting a full day after signings had begun and brought in a surprisingly good class.  Not what it could have been, though, so AAS will struggle through this season and possibly a few more.  May take a beating in our debut in the Derby City Classic.  But we will be back.

St. Mary's is in a transition season.  We lost a stud PG that made everything go on offense after last season, and while we've got a ton of talent, I don't know if they will grow up fast enough to make a run this season.  We are probably a season or 2 away from competing for a spot in the Final Four again (assuming one of my guards can grow into a PG at some point).  I think we should make the NT, but it isn't a guarantee with this squad, espeically in the full and difficult Heartland conference.

I'll 2nd your Lenoir-Rhyme pick.  Perpetually overrated Incarnate Word lost by 27 in a pre-season game.

Put U of the Sciences and W New Mexico in two more final four spots.  And round it out with NJ Tech.
