Has the current staff attempted to leverage the experience of Diogo Brito and Nemias Queta in recruiting in Portugal? Admittedly, Portugal is a small country, and not exactly known as a hotbed of college recruiting, but by the same token, it probably isn't being recruited heavily by other schools. If USU could consistently pull in one of the top five college prospects in the country, it might be worth it.

Well, i was kinda was disappointed that USU didn't offer a scholarship to JUCO Andre Cruz, he had a fantastic U20 European championship against top European teams, he got picked up by Incarnate word, which was weird since i heard he got offers from better schools.

Regarding the next best prospect from Portugal, unfortunately its unlikely USU will have a chance to recruit him since he might not even pass by the NCAA, he is already under the NBA radars at still 17 and is currently considered one of the best 2005 prospects from Europe.
