Title: What would it take for us to " lock up" Chicago
Post by: DemonDomer on May 21, 2018, 01:22:38 PM
First time poster, recent DePaul graduate, pursing a MA there. Anyway, you know how Alabama football stockpiles homegrown talent? Texas football had( or maybe still has, idk, I just remember that the 06 team was like almost all Texas kids) that state locked up? Miami football had the State of Miami back in the 80s.

Maybe wishful thinking/comparing apples to oranges, but what would it take for us to create a " fence" around the Chicago basketball talent?

Would be cool if it happened. Would've had The Brow, D-Rose, D-Wade, Okafor, Jabari all in our recent history.

A top coach recognized as a true leader, would make this happen.

$$$. Seriously how does any program in any state or any city keep kids when the Dukes, the Kansas or the Kentucky's of the world come recruiting HARD for these players. Its almost impossible.

D-Wade wanted to come to DePaul but Kennedy didn't think he wasworth the scholarship to have him sit a year because he wasnt eligible through the Clearinghouse

Not a fan of focusing all your recruiting attention to one location. The talent very much ebb and flows in locations, and Chicago is not producing that elite level talent like it once did. I believe Michael O'Brien recently did an article on the weaker talent in Illinois recently.
