Yes, I'd like to have two top 100 players in the fold; but if we want to recruit highly ranked players, we have to be willing to wait for their decisions. Not that we're recruiting any of them, but none of the ESPN top 5 are committed. Six of the top 20 are committed, and only 6 of the guys ranked #56 through #100 are committed. A large number of the best players take their time.
We aren't the only ACC program that has a sparse class so far. I'm sure Duke will land a fine class; but it has only one committed player so far, a shooting guard. Pitt has no commitments. Syracuse, Florida State, Virginia, Miami have only one.
Elsewhere, Michigan has two (an unranked guy and a three star guard, which we'd find disappointing). Michigan State has none. Illinois and Wisconsin have one three star guy apiece. Indiana has one.
I'm sure we'll go head to head against several new Big East teams. Villanova and Marquette have one commitment each. St. John's and Butler have nobody yet.
A year ago, conventional wisdom on this board was that Jackson would not be coming to ND because he had plenty of time to commit by then and would have if he really wanted ND.
It won't be the worst thing if the class is Geben and a three star guy as long as the three star is a 6'8" or 6'9" tough guy who will rebound and generally add toughness to the team. ND needs some bigs to go with the wings it has been collecting. However, I'll be very pleased if the class includes Geben and Robinson; and I'll be equally pleased if the class has Travis and his two buddies from the neighborhood.
Let's let it play out before we collectively assume the fetal position.
(Note: I worked off of Yahoo's commitment list to get the counts for various schools.)
