Gary recruiting


Last name's game made me realize something.  Gary may take some heat for not getting many top 15-top 20 guys, but in a lot of ways he is smarter than the list makers out there.

On NC State, you had Deshawn Painter, a consensus top 100 guy that considered MD till the end but ulitmately went to NC State.

 

MD, of course, had already signed Jordan Williams, who was not a on anyone's top 100 list and ranked lower than Painter by all the services. 

Now, Is Jordan Williams on of the top 100 freshman in the country?  Absolutely.  Is he in the top 30?  You could make a good argument.  And for good measure, he throws up 19 and 11 last night while Painter gets 2 points in 11 minutes.  Williams has had a MUCH better freshman year than Painter.

Where are all the haters who get after Gary for not getting a "Top 100" recruit?  Why don't they praise him for having the vision to see a player who was clearly going to he a Top 100 player as a freshman, which is what really matters.
