Our season is over so I guess now is the time to post. I didn't post after recruiting because I fell into a recruiting depression. With 7 open spots and an A- prestige I figured I'd really be able to make a splash. I ended up spending 80+k on two recruits that went elsewhere, I took two walk-ons (one international ineligible guy didn't sign), two internationals, one ****** JUCO, one walk-on level scholarship guy who had to play 20mpg out of necessity, and one guy I thought might be pretty good. WIth such little talent returning and coming in, I thought it might be the class that could lead to the end of my NC State job. As it turns out, it was a much better than I thought. Starting from the beginning of the season, my best recruit developed 109 points.
With a ton of room to grow still, Crain's Ath cap is 97 or 98 and his defense cap is 99. He is going to be one heck of a SF.
I did end up getting lucky on both of my international signings. The first, Romanian PG Alva Zapf, I had more info on; I knew he had high potential in BH, Pas, and defense and high-high potential in Speed , so I decided to take him. His speed cap is somewhere in the mid-90s and his BH/P should get to around 80. He'll be an excellent ath/spd/def guard, when coupled with his good handles, should make him a serviceable ACC point guard.
The other international signing was a HUGE success. I signed this Canadian 7-footer for very cheap. I didn't scout him much, just enough to know that his rebounding was avg potential, which was good enough for me. The fact that he has high-high potential in LP takes him from being an athletic rebounder to a potential cornerstone player for the next 3 years.
