If Smith hadn't brought in Fakira, JK3, and TK perhaps we would have gone 36-2 rather than 28-7? :headscratch:

I completely trust that Smith will make the right decision and do what's best for the team in regards to the last scholarship. I'm not worried.

Awesome. Then we're in agreement that the only people out there introduce too much risk and likely won't improve our team. Because Smith isn't an idiot and he's not brought anyone in - and if/when he does bring someone in, it will be the right guy.
No. We’re not. According to aggies22, Smith isn’t even looking.

And you guys act like it’s all or nothing like it’s a forgone conclusion that anybody brought it will screw up the team. That’s ridiculous.

I love Smith but he’s not perfect, he brought in Fakira, JK3, and TK. I believe he will get things right more often than he gets them wrong, but he’s fallible and it’s entirely possible he could screw this one up.

I was certainly skeptical of the staff's ability to recruit. Outside of Queta, last year's class was a washout. That left me wondering if Queta was more the exception than the rule.
Looking at this year's class, Bairstow and Karwowski seem shockingly good. The addition of those two players have my mind swimming a bit. If Queta returns, I will have pretty high expectations for this team - with or without an upgrade at PG.

Don’t sleep on McChesney. That kid has a chance to be very good too...

That's not even close to the point I was making, and if thats what you got out of it, then I don't know what to tell you. :noidea:

This is really Smith's 1st recruiting class that he should be judged on. So far he gets an A and he still has one to go. If Karwowski turns into a good D1 C, then Smith gets an A+, if there is such a thing


Warning! Don't read this post. It's garbage.

I interpreted what he said was that the guys they are looking at would have to sit out a year. I am sure if the right guy came around for this year they would be looking at him. I think it's really kinda weird that some of the posters have taken the position that Smith has made up his mind that if the next coming of King PG was available, that he wouldn't be interested. The MWC coach of the year in just a few months has become a misguided dunce???

Why is it people can't get through their heads that that guy hasn't been found, as far as talent and FIT! I'm sure they'v looked under every rock and either that guy hasn't been found or has not shown interest in USU. Maybe he prefers Kentucky, Duke or some other institution.

Every guard they are currently looking at is either a freshman or a sophomore who would have to sit out a year as a transfer. They are looking for someone they can develop into a leader that can guide this team for more than just a one and done season. Although Abel will only be a junior in 2019-20 he has already graduated once from USU. This is purely speculation BUT he may not want to stick around for his senior year of eligibility in 2020-21.

Until I see our "best recruiting class" perform against MWC level competition I am not ready to crown them anything other than a collection foreign projects that haven't played against the best competition to this point.

Like Queta?

People aren't overstating how talented McChesney and Bairstow are. Both are very likely going to be impact players all 4 years

Yep, exactly like Queta. I hope they pan out and become big contributors.

I don't expect either one to have anywhere near the impact that Queta did as a true freshman so anything they can contribute this first year is great. I just hope they don't end up like Fakira or the Knights because this class and the next are going to define how good this staff really is without Sam or Queta on the court (assuming he is gone by at least the end of next year).

Add a distributing point guard that can play next season and call it a day. That's my opinion, anyway. ;)
