How are ya now?

Not every one of these guys is going to be a star, or even a contributor. I think that’s a given. With this many holes to fill so quickly, some will likely be a miss.Also a reminder, he is a 3* for a reason.
I am not complaining but I think some need to realize that we are filling out a depleted roster and many of these guys probably (I hope) wouldn't be good enough to join the team 4 years from now.
Or am I expecting too much?
However, Fred didn’t have that many flat out misses at ISU that I recall. They did their homework, especially on the discipline cases and had few problems. Nor, does Fred abide slackers. They will cycle out the non-hackers pretty quickly.
I think that level of player, a 3* Mr Ohio is a pretty decent floor to expect. They can’t be too choosey in this short cycle, and had precious little time to do a ton of research, so this is probably the most scattershot/highest % chance for error you will see from them. However, think about Niang...he likes overlooked 4-year guys with huge upside. Yes, Niang was 4* but blew up late.
Really fortunate to be able to take so many eligible transfers in particular. I would trust Fred’s evaluations under most circumstances.
