I'm pretty bored at work today, and happened to see there was a college basketball recruiting chat on espn.com with some guy from Scouts, Inc. so I fired in a question.
He answered, but I was hoping for a bit more information. I guess I should have asked a more specific question, but whatever. Here is the transcript:
Nate (Minneapolis, MN): Tubby Smith seems to have the Gophers on the trail of some good recruits (Sampson, Iverson, Joseph, Royce White, Rodney Williams). How do see it all shaking out? Is he going to turn the Gophers around?
SportsNation Paul Biancardi: (1:16 PM ET ) Without question, Tubby has made a concerted effort to evaluate and recruit the 2009 class in Minnesota, as well as the 2010 class, which should pay dividends. I think it's a matter of time before he benefits from it.
So, I guess that means something.
