KK announced an offer from Baylor head coach Scott Drew.
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

Good news: our recruits for next year were not so bad after all

Bad news: we probably won’t keep him

Just because these schools are offering him a scholarship, that doesn’t mean that they expect him to be a star, or even to see serious minutes next year. Check out the transfer lists, then check out the unsigned recruits lists. Many of these teams are loosing players to transfers and need to fill their rosters. But there aren’t many 3* players left unsigned. With available scholarships it makes sense for them to offer someone in the area that will certainly help them more than any walkon. He will have to weigh the opportunities to play and contribute at these schools against what it is that X has to offer in the same area.

I don't think X is still recruiting him. He wants minutes for the coming season and X will not give hime that assurance.

jps1943 - That is probably right and XU should not that commitment to any recruit. What if turned out to be another Harden (not ready for prime time) and he would more than likely have transferred anyway. We will just have to muddle thru and we usually do very well. Go Xavier!

And maybe Coach Steele thinks Eli Harden will blossom this year and was OK with Kennedy bolting.
Let's hope.

I did not mean to say that Harden was not a good player, he just got lost in the rotation. He was a four star recruit by all the rating and I think he will end up as a very good player. Go Xavier!
