    You'd think out of all these 5 star recruits coming out of Minnesota at least one of them would want to turn their hometown program into a nationally elite team and become a legend in their home state. Guess I'm wrong. Huh.

    Tre was the only one who had the chance to make them elite. The previous ones might have gotten us over .500 but not much else.

    For what it's worth, Amir Coffey was a 5 star at one point.

    You mean like Joel Pryzbilla and Rick Rickert? And the next one? (And there will be a next one.)

    Royce White was a 5-star who chose the Gophers. Unfortunately, he didn't subsequently choose to remove his head from his rectum.

    I put Tre, Rashad, Tyus, Trent, Hurt and Suggs in that rare top-tier NBA level talent.

    Local guys like Amir, Oturu and Reid are in that second tier, but great program builders & impact players and that most likely will give you 4 years. Getting 2 of these 3 ain't shabby.

    I completely agree. If we have a shot at a great player who is likely to stay 3-4 years, that has to be the preference. Not the same for the blue bloods, but for the U of M it will give them a better shot at sustained success.

    Judging from Rashad Vaughn's one season an UNLV and subsequent NBA flame out, I'd definitely bump him off that list.
