Trapp now a 3 star at 247, http://247sports.com/Player/Clyde-Trapp-46035834.

One of the USC guys that predicted USC, flipped his prediction to Charlotte today.


To move to a 3 star, I'm guessing someone has inside information that he's leaning Clemson or USC and they need him to be ranked higher for publicity.  If the inside word was he's picking Charlotte...I'm sure they would have downgraded him to 1 or zero stars.

I got banned from the Clemson page for making fun of their attendance in a picture. Trapp retweeted it and then I then I took a screenshot of being banned and tweeted it out and he liked it! So, based on random twitter encounters I'd say we're the favorite. I know that doesn't actually mean anything but its pretty funny.

Regardless of how much we hate it...at the core the argument is valid.


No one knows how well he'll play at any college...small or large.
BUT....from his point of view...if he works hard and earns starters' minutes at an ACC school, it simply makes much more of an impact on his resume for pro opportunities.


There's a chance he gets recruited over and there's a chance he doesn't work out there...but if he does, his pro stock becomes more highly valued simply based on the competition he would be playing against every night.

So for him...I'm sure it's worth the gamble.

It is what it is.

We make the NCAA tourney and these players will fall our direction. Price still has something to prove to recruits, but my confidence is high in him.

This is the catch-22. You need good players to make the tournament, but it's hard to get good players without making the tournament. If Price can construct a well-balanced team using freshmen recruits (including some pretty good post players), then by the time they are juniors and seniors, a tournament berth becomes more likely and it will build. But he needs a break or two, a few more of these players going elsewhere to come to Charlotte instead.

There are teams every year that make the tournament with low to no star recruits.  The last coach had a blueprint for how not to make the tournament with good recruits.  We need the opposite.
