I will also go on record and predict that next November's recruiting class will look more like Brey's recruiting of 4-5 years ago, than like last year's class.
Your comment about next year's recruiting class is spot on. The next recruiting class is critical. If you're right, all of our current angst about ND basketball (poor tournament performance, lack of a practice facility, lack of administration support, no admissions breaks) will intensify. If Brey can pull a rabbit out of his hat and put together a very good 2013-14 recruiting class, I'll feel a lot better about the program, in spite of all our other concerns. Like you, though, I have a feeling our recruiting is going to fall off again.
