Recruiting Theory

I'm not making this about a race issue, but why is it schools like Kentucky, G'Town, Duke, UNC, UCLA, Arizona only recruit certain type of players.

  • Kentucky-1 & Done
  • G'Town-Big men
  • Duke-System guys
  • UNC-System guys
  • UCLA-Local
  • Arizona-PG's

Arizona doesnt just recruit

Arizona doesnt just recruit pgs i dont know where you got that from. Georgetown recruits other positions but they go after big men primarily for their princeton offense. UCLA goes after local players because UCLA is the top destination for college players on the pacific. Kentucky goes after one and dones because the one and dones want to improve their draft stock at kentucky. UNC and Duke can get just about any player kentucky doesnt get so they aim for guys that work in their offense.

Kentucky doesn't just recruit

Kentucky doesn't just recruit one and done's or else they would have a new roster every year. Look at more than just last season. Plus the guys they recruit are not just getting recruited by them, they are getting recruited by every top college in America including Duke.

None of the teams you named just recruit the type of players you named. Where are you getting this false info from? I'm guessing what you meant to ask it why those type of players/positions tend to go to those schools.

ucla recruits all over. Of

ucla recruits all over. Of course there is such a good talent pool from socal that many guys are from there. But just off the top of my head some ucla recruits not from cal: earl watson(kansas), Carlos Boozer(alaska, ucla was his number 2 school), dan gadzuric(holland), jerome moiso, luc richard mbah a moute, alfred aboya(africa), kevin love(oregon), lazeric jones(chicago)....Again that is just off the top of my head im sure there are numerous other guys they recruited from everywhere.

How are any of those guys

How are any of those guys system players? They didnt play a UNC type system in H.S so what makes them UNC system players? Frasor played up tempo Jwill type game in H.S. Marshall lloked more like a Duke type player. I never watched Drew in H.S

Whats your evidence that they

Whats your evidence that they are system guys? There's more evidence against it because they didn't play a Duke or UNC system while in H.S or AAU.

And how does you're Ariziona PG theory make any sense when all you did was name point guards ?

UNC ty lawson,Ed Cota,Marshall,Raymond Felton,Larry Drew,

One and done's Ohio st- Mike conley,Greg Oden,Daquan Cook,Bj Mullans,Kosta Kofus, Jared sullinger

See how i just named point guards for UNC and that group happens to be better than you're Arizona Group. So does UNC only recruit Point guards?..Ohio St only recruit one and done's?

According to you're theory i can say UK only recruits black guys or Ohio St only Recruit tall guys and that would make just as much sense

All you did was name big guys for G'town like no other school has big men. And all of them arent even that good which makes even less sense for you're arguement.

Lol How you figure that Cal

Lol How you figure that Cal doesn't care about winning. You make about as much sense as him. You know what throws a very big hole in that argument? One is the fact that He wins alot and Two he's not the only one that recruited these players. How about you go check out who else recruited the guys Coach Cal got. Watch how many times these schools pop up on the list of who recruited them

UNC

Kansas

Duke

Texas

Syracuse

Uconn

Pittsburgh's

I mean good lord its like y'all didn't even try to do any research on this one. defiantly amateur hour
