    These Frank defenders are so funny.

    They twist the story and act like we have been so robbed and should have made the tournament the last 4 years in a row...... get over it.

    We made ONE tournament..... make it again soon and it begins to show a little consistency. Miss a few more years and that ONE year proves to be little more than a fluke, the stars aligning right, whatever you want to call it.

    Admittedly, there are a lot of New Yorkers on this list from the McGuire Era, but there are also a lot of South Carolinians on this "Top 25" list for best Gamecock Men's Basketball Players.

    https://www.thestate.com/sports/coll...113519053.html

    The problem with USC is that we get one star here and one star there, but can't seem to put a team of stars together at the same time.

    Until we get out of the funk that people like this Tater Pastor are spewing, it will continue to be hard to consistently recruit this state. And yes, it is important to develop some inroads and keep the top local talent at home.

    For those saying they don't care where a player is from, that's fine if we get the elite talent from that area, rather than getting what is left over after the local colleges have picked through it.

    Develop inroads with local high school coaches, just as we do in football and baseball and then you can start competing for the local kids AND continue with the out of staters, but the coach gets to decide who he wants, rather than having kids that won't even consider playing for him and USC.

    Of course there are a lot of kids from SC on USC's top 25, I'd be shocked if there wasn't. That doesn't change the fact that the 1 time in the history of our basketball program where we had sustained success it was built off of out of state recruiting. It's an inconvenient fact for anyone who says that we must have instate recruiting to be a successful basketball program. We'll always have a few players from SC on the roster but it doesn't matter where the best players come from.

    Actually no, it does absolutely nothing to eliminate the claim that we have to keep elite local talent instate in 2018, if we want to be a solid program.

    Nice try, but comparing the 60’s and 70’s to 2018 is laughable at best.

    The other difference is that McGuire was getting elite out of state talent, not just the leftovers...... BIG difference.

    All I'm saying is that some people equate instate talent with our only chance to be successful. That's not the case. History says it isn't. If we make the NCAA Tournament this year it will be with 1 scholarship player from SC. I think we've got a chance to make it.

    That's slight of hand!! The point is for sustainable success we must do better with the instate studs... Some years there won't be any ballers instate... Coach Staley is dealing with that now!!! The key is a successful program!! Anything can happen in a particular year

    We are not trying to be funny - and you Frank bashers are pretty humurous too. You go out of your way to belittle what Frank has done and ignore the obvious progress - because it does not fit your agenda.

    Frank needed to rebuild the program from scratch By his 4th year, he had a team that had the credentials to get in the tournament, but we got shafted because we were not a traditional powerhouse, and the SEC was not getting much respect. That team was anchored by a Senior frontline class that Frank threw together in just a few weeks, all foreign.

    You have to give him a pass for the first few years, and then we have had solid teams the last three years - including the ONLY successful NCAA tournament team in our entire existence. I was disappointed that the PG issues kept us out of the tournament this year and I expect Frank to have that fixed this year so we can get back in the tournament. If not, he needs to be held accountable.

    But Frank recruits hard, including the in-state players, finds and develops players, is a super coach and individual, and has the program trending upward. And I believe that he will be able to recruit better in-state with continued success.

    To hear the bashers talk, we are better off bringing Horn or Fig Newton back.

    We are involved with several outstanding prospects for the class of 2019, most of which are from somewhere other than SC. We already have a commitment from one in-state player (Trae Hannibal) and are recruiting a few other in-state guys. But, should the SC players refuse our offers, we have several other quality players on our list. Some of which may be better than the SC players we are recruiting. So, if one or more of the SC kids goes elsewhere, it will not mean that we won't have a good recruiting class for 2019.

    And I answered you earlier in the thread our only time with sustained success in program history was due to out of state recruiting under McGuire. As opposed to mining the northeast like McGuire our current Frank looks to be mining international players. We'll see how it works out. One thing is for sure though in most cases the international players won't be rated as highly coming into college because they'll have far less exposure.

    I don’t think we have ever consistently gotten talented players from SC HS.

    Something has surfaced recently is that there is a pastor at a church in Columbia that has been pushing SC HS players out of the state. I certainly can’t prove that but enough people have said the same thing that which makes me believe there must be some truth to this.

    I do understand how kids would follow a coach like Avery Johnson. He’s both played and coached in the NBA with very good success.

    And the Pastor is a Clemson Fan with a Church full of Gamecocks. Hope that doesn't work out well for him.

    I'm just ready for this one to be over. It'll be disappointing if he chooses another school, but not completely shocking either.

    I get why kids want to go out of state, but I do find it sad that very few have enough pride in their home to try and make a difference. Even worse are the coaches and community leaders that are so opposed to an in-state program and have a lot of sway with the kids. The only way I see in-state recruiting improvement is by continued success and hopefully putting more kids in the NBA. It would be good for the program to see Sin take an increased role, PJ to stick with the Thunder, and Chris getting drafted next year.

    Everyone should be a Frank defender. SC basketball is one year removed from a final four. We had not won a tournament game in my lifetime. The last three years he has fielded very competitive teams that he built from a dead program. SC basketball has been a joke for the past 40 years. He is already the second best coach in SC history in my opinion. You could argue Fogler is number 2 but I would rather a final four run than an SEC regular season championship and 2 embarrassing tournament losses.


    So what if a 4-star recruit decides to go out of state to play? It doesn't even sound like we recruited him hard.

    We already got a commitment from Trae Hannibal, who is an in-state kid for the 2019 class. Is that not something to be happy about? Does Frank have to sign ALL of the local talent in order to prove he is doing a good job? We already have Cuisnard, Bryant, Lawson and Minaya who all can play on the wing, which is where Gary is projected to play. If Gary chooses to go elsewhere, maybe its because he thinks we are already loaded at his position? Could that be a factor?

    Signing just any local talent vs signing the top local talent are two different things
