Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article

Here's today's story in the Post-Gazette on Rob Carmody's commitment.
Some good stuff in here. Clearly, Coach Brey did his homework. It also mentions Carmody's friendship with Phil Jurkovec that goes back to 3rd grade.


Carmody...is hardly ever heard.

Nice. Another top prospect. Keep it up *

Good coaching and winning will do that for you.

These young HS recruits often seem to look at the last 3 or so years of history (13 to 17 years old) when judging a program or its coaches. Obviously, some of the big names have a long history that everyone knows..Duke, UNC, etc. I'm guessing that Brey, who most of us have been following for his entire career at ND and believe is a very good coach, may not have been recognized as such by these very young kids until ND started getting into the Elite Eight at the Tourney.

It's probably futile to try to determine, yet generalize, what's in the minds of teenagers, but the above struck me as a probable determining factor.


Fun team to watch

We have had some exciting players lately....Grant, Connaughton,Farrell, VJ, and Bonzie are fun to watch. A lot of guys down here in N.C. have told me that even though they are UNC, NC State, or Duke fans, that they like to watch ND because they like the players and love the style the team plays with.


I think that's true and may also be an influence

Moon, RIP...

Coming back to earth, Robby Carmody continues the 2018 recruiting momentum; who is next?


...or Otis Sistrunk, from the "University of Mars". *

ND join the ACC as an all-sport member or be shown the door. I hope Carmody hits him in the nutsack.

Excellent addition and another fine job by Brey and staff:

loved Matt Carroll as a player, and he's the gift that keeps giving.


This must be what it feels like to be Duke
by Taxman  (2017-06-22 16:19:54)     cannot delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

Throw out a bunch of offers to top recruits at the same position and say "first one to commit gets in."

Now if we really want to be like Duke, we need to start recruiting over guys.


Maybe pre-Maggette.

Certainly Duke is significantly different since Kyrie.

But point taken.


Fantastic news. Third top 100 commitment

and it's only June. I can't help but believe the new practice facility has contributed to this uptick in recruiting. The future of the program is really, really bright. Congrats to Coach Brey and the staff.


I only see 2 for 2018 (Hubb and Carmody)

Yes, counting Durham.* *

Let's hope his ball tapping days are behind him.

I'm actually fairly confident that he'll be a good soldier. Or he'll wash out. Either way, I doubt we'll have to deal with any Grayson Allen bullshit.


I'd deal with it if he was that caliber of player
by JBrock18  (2017-06-22 17:08:55)     Delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

I wouldn't like it but I'd deal with it. Having seen him play 10 times or so he's not on the level of an Allen as a player. I hope he progresses but I don't see a top 100 player when I watch him.


I suspect they've already had a discussion. *

I'm sure Brey is well aware of those antics, but will only address it if continues. And by continues, I mean his senior season in high school.
