Recruit #2: Steven Rogers
Unlike Slater, Rogers did not come cheap. I spent 31k on Rogers (battling Richmond), which was the majority of my budget. I believe I had 38k or so to start, spent a bunch on scouting-and by scouting I don’t just mean FSS…too many people think that’s all scouting is. Scouting is FSS as well as sending evals to a bunch of potential recruits to see where their high-high potentials are. If you’re not finding guys with high-high potentials, you’re not finding the guys who are going to help you make deep runs in the tournament. Rogers is a guy with a lot of high-high potentials. Every high potential is a high-high (except for PER, but that will be in the 90s without high-high so I didn’t really need it there), which will make Rogers into a great scorer by the time he’s done at NC State. Obviously I wish his rebounding were better, but I really don’t have any other complaints. Overall, I’m extremely pumped to get a guy like Rogers with such little money available.
EDIT: ACC POY, not bad for the 70th ranked SF.
