    Hurt probably wants to play for a good coach.

    He may think Pitino is a good coach. He may want to play close to home and play with his brother.

    Mike may go play where Matt goes as he will grad after 3 years. On another note Kansas has offered their younger sister.

    ...so he can watch his brother play from the first row? Is Bill Self going to offer Mike a manager position? He's not going to give up a scholarship on Mike.

    He might if the scholarship is only for one year.

    Sure, it could be a fun year, but after that, what? does one year of Hurt transform the program - or does it become a band-aid of sorts, covering up any issues with the program until you rip off the band-aid after that one year.

    If Pitino does land Hurt, he had better make the most of it - like a real run in the NCAA's. Otherwise, I'm not sure one year of Hurt really makes a long-term difference.
    Those are very good points. When you're not one of the most elite programs, one-and-done candidates add an additional layer of recruiting uncertainty because you don't always know for sure until late in the spring whether or not they are going to jump to the pros. Programs like KY and Duke can afford to wait because there are always some very highly rated recruits who wait until late in the year to declare when players at those programs decide whether they are leaving. The type of players that Minnesota recruits rarely wait that long.

    You are correct that one-and-done players don't always help lesser programs. Ben Simmons was one of the best #1 picks this century but LSU didn't do much with him there in his lone season. Washington had a losing record with #1 Markell Fultz and Minnesota had a bad record with Humphries.

    Walk on if necessary.

    Both Hurts will be playing together next year and it won't be at Minnesota.

    We will not be hurt at all as this Hurt is overrated just like his older brother.

    CJ Henry would disagree.

    To just watch? He can watch while playing for UMN where he actually has a scholarship.

    How much PT will he get here next year? Didnt play at all last game. Pitino could very well have a grad transfer or two in next recruiting class who will contribute as well as he will probably be more motivated for sake of the future to play incoming freshmen over Michael.
