    Not sure little Dick Pitino is the answer and if he is we are just the first step on the ladder...

    I was disappointed he wasn't able to land any of the 2017 Minnesota recruits. I knew from the beginning Trent was about a .01% chance, but losing Sims and John were disappointing. 2018 and 2019 with Hurt are huge for Pitino. Needless to say, so far his performance has been extremely underwhelming.

    Daniel Oturu, Cretin Derham Hall, Power Forward

    Daniel Oturo is good start with Minnesota kids. We can be solid program with just in state talent


    We're in good position with other mn kids for this year

    Really happy w/Oturo. Consensus top 60 kid. Thompson would be a nice get as well. And adding Kalscheur would be another solid player. I think we'll have 5 scholarships open for 2018, so Pitino needs a big class.

    Fitzgerald could end up with medical redshirt but yes class should be 4-5

    Race Thompson and gabe kalschuer are strong in state kids


    2019 we're in good shape with Matthew hurt

    Gabe kalschuer announcement coming Tuesday. Would be shocked if it's not Minnesota leaving one scholarship left. That'll come down to tre, hunter, Llewellyn being top priority

    Pitino has put together a really good class thus far. Extremely happy with the projection of the program. We needed a big 2018 class and he's delivering it. Icing on the cake would be Tre, but I'm not holding my breath on that, so I would take Hunter or Llewellyn as a consolation. The 2018-2019 team should have some really solid depth, assuming no transfers and Coffey leaving early to the NBA.

    No surprise, Tre Jones goes to Duke. Figured it was a long shot, but I was hopeful MN would sneak in there. My hopes were dashed bit when Duke picked up the pressure and made him more of a priority over other PG's....but one spot to go and we're in good position with several, would like to see a either a PG or combo guard
