    Not sure of your point. Chris Walker, if he can get admitted to school, is presumed by many to be a one-and-done, maybe a 1 1/2-and-done, candidate. Does that diminish the program's need for him?

    Dave Telep tweeted that his visit to NC St and the "hoops cache" of Raleigh were two determining factors for Abu. Sometimes, I think there's something to be said for the cultural vibe of college sports when it comes to recruiting. He landed in a basketball state in an area where college basketball is the number 1 passion 12 months a year. I'm not saying NC St was the smart decision, but this was an advantage for them that some kids care about more than others.

    I can't say I'd be too certain about his ego either. Maybe it played into this decision, but it didn't appear to be such a problem that it kept Donovan from wanting him to be a gator.

    This miss just means landing a surprise or a key transfer are all the more important (to state the obvious). Given Donovan's consistent success over the years, I honestly wouldn't be too worried about the teams he'll put on the floor in the future.

    I think it is more like, get enough paper cuts and pretty soon you are going to get some significant blood loss. I feel the frustration. Just have to keep the faith.
