1. Derek Willis back to Purdue?
Here is the latest from Scout.com: "The kid as well as the folks around him are seemingly more comfortable with Purdue than any other option on the table. Right now Willis keeps saying the right things in terms of taking his time, but a quicker decision wouldn't be a surprise at all."
(A quick decision would be a big surprise. After the summer fiasco I don't think he'll commit anywhere until at least fall of 2012)
2. Frosh's path to MSU's starting lineup
"Some insiders predict there is no way to keep the 6-foot-6 freshman Branden Dawson out of the starting lineup," wrote Slater on Wednesday, "particularly because of his penchant for offensive rebounding."
(I look forward to Hale and Lawson out-rebounding Dawson when we meet)
3. LaQuinton Ross ruled ineligible for OSU
OSU announced Monday that incoming freshman LaQuinton Ross was ruled an academic non-qualifier by the NCAA. Ross, who according to the Rivals.com was the No. 43 overall recruit in the class of 2011, was the highest-ranked of the five players who committed to play for OSU.(Whatever, they still have three guys who are rated a 95 or above by ESPN so I won't feel sorry for them)
