A Recruitnik's Lament

Granted, there are specifics and caveats of which we're not aware. But a not-so-far-fetched scenario exists that would put Maryland in a position of not having any apparent room for recruits in 2013.

First, let me add that I'm sure Turge knows what he's doing, but on the surface this possibility exists: IF we land Evan Smotrycz, and Sam Cassell, Jr recommits, our 13 scholarships will be filled for the 2012 season (even though Smoltrycz won't be eligible until 2013). That would also force Damonte Dodd to go the prep school route. With James Padgett being our only senior next year, Dodd would then fill his slot in the 2013 season, filling our 13 scholarship spots for the 2013 season.

In order for us to accept any 2013 recruits, attrition would be required. It's entirely possible Terrell Stoglin or Alex Len will opt for pro ball, and it also possible someone - or more than one - will choose to transfer. But IF none of that happens - a successful 2012-2013 season could mitigate those possibilities - we would have no available scholarships for the 2013 season. That includes no twins, and no apparent solution to the point guard situation.

Most people on this board seem to feel like getting Smoltrycz and Cassell would be a good thing. But is it worth the possibility of not having room for any recruits in 2013?
