Obviously kids don't pan out, especially high ranking recruits. That's just some times how it works.
Again, not trolling -- curious. I enjoy a good basketball conversation.
He is, but they have been transfers. Anderson didn't have a single recruit in his last class, so Haith had to plug holes with transfers.
Jabari Brown was the #19 player in the country 2 years ago, and Oriakhi was a McDonald's AA who had a monster tournament when UCONN won the NC. We also grabbed the leading scorer and rebounder from Auburn's team two years ago, Ross, who was a true Sophomore at the time.
In that regard, he's passed with flying colors. He's added a couple of 3* Freshmen who look like solid role players at this point. On the surface, this appears to me the most talented Mizzou squad in a long time.
