Recruiting Update: Jason Carter in the house.
Jason Carter, the 6'8 Power Forward from Houston chose Alabama over Ole Miss. This likely concludes our recruiting class, as we will now have our full allotment of 13 scholarship players. Luke Cothran has been rumored to be favoring auburn, and with us signing Carter that leads me to believe that Cothron is likely an auburn lock at this point. Also Josh Langford, who I mentioned in an earlier post, went to auburn, but I do not expect him to qualify. Of course, should we be able to land Cothron, I would imagine Ben Eblen would be encouraged to transfer. On paper, this does not appear to be a stellar class, but it is a solid class that addresses our needs. It's somewhat disappointing to miss out on both Ratliffe and likely Cothron and have to "settle" for Durant and Carter, but hopefully under Grant's coaching these guys will prove to be the better ball players. Hopefully we can win more games next year and be in better position to land some of the ridiculous in state talent that will be up for grabs with next year's recruiting class.
