With all this recruiting activity recently, I decided to do a quick check on open offers for 2014. I reviewed ESPN, Scout and Rivals and consolidated all reported offers. Anybody want to take a guess how many are out there? Oh forget it! You suck at this game. The number is 16. 16 offers for 3 spots. Granted some of these may not be reported accurately and some are so pie in the sky, they are not realistic but they are still reported offers. I'll break it down by bigs and wings in order of likelyhood (IMO):
Bigs Wideman, Craig, Moore, M. Jones, White, Alexander
Wings Edwards, Diop, Bluiett, Barnett, Tate, Collier, Thompson,
Henderson, Lyle, T. Jackson
And I could swear I heard Paul Turner had an offer from us but I couldn't find anything to back it up. I don't know if these are all unconditional but, boy, that seems like a bunch. It's pretty clear, Coach Painter is not going to get caught short handed. I think we just need one to break the ice and the rest will follow.
