If I had to give my impression of the factors involved in the recent recruiting uptick, it'd be:

1) Recent conference and NCAA tournament success
2) The practice facility
3) The most recent additions to the assistant coaching staff
4) Brey getting more (highly deserved) recognition in recent years for his offensive system

To take the next step into the truly elite recruiting programs, the following will/would probably help:

- Making a Final Four
- Actually finishing the practice facility and being able to show it off
- Having one or more ND players achieve some real success in the NBA (maybe Grant, DJ, Bonzie or someone still to come); Troy Murphy is the last guy that even a serious NBA fan would recognize, and you'd have to go all the way back to the Hanzlik, Laimbeer, Dantley, Woolridge, Tripucka era to find guys who were legitimate stars
