Dang that guy is good. That’s the type of player we need to take the next step.
How the crap did he end up at South Dakota is what I want to know. Captain Craig Smith charm?
Under recruited. Read an article today where he talked about his recruitment and how he ended up there.

It happens. I think of the Portland Trailblazers where their 3 leading scorers went to Weber State, Lehigh and Tennessee State.

Recruiting isn't just about convincing the blue chipper to play for your school, it is also about finding the diamonds in the rough that have been looked over.

Well that has to be awkward going on a visit and the coach is gone the next day. Craig was probably like let me introduce you to Coach Alford while I take care of some business

I am not a conspiracy theorist except for those times when I am. However, this lad likely will be flying out of the airport in SLC.

Who's to say Smith hasn't invited him in for a little look see at what Utah has to offer. while he waits for his flight.

He probably just hitched a ride back to salt lake with him late last night

Well say good bye to any of these transfers. We have no hope of bringing in any big transfer without a coach and it will take us a while to find someone. Throw in the possibility that Worster and our other up and coming players leave with Smith and we could be SJSU-esque next year.

For any of those people that say that Smith is leaving USU in a better place than when he got here, I don’t think I agree, we’ll see who leaves. If he takes players with him, we are in a worse position than when Duryea left, we still had Sam Merrill.

I’m hoping how Smith is handling all this that he is burning bridges with current players.

Not only did we have Sam Merrill, but we had the MWC Freshman of the Year in Koby McEwen, Justin Bean, Brock Miller, Diogo Brito, Quinn Taylor, and Dwayne Brown.

Of course he was unable to retain McEwen.

I'm sorry but, considering Queta and Anderson gone, what he's left is in no way shape or form as good as what he inherited.

Smith is leaving the program in a better place from a perception standpoint, but definitely not from a players standpoint.

Time to reboot. This thread should be "players that Utah have interest in".
