OWENS A FREAKING STUD

FROM HOOPSCOOPONLINE.COM

you need a password, sorry, but i can cut and paste.


And Donnie Wilkie, who invites the teams for the City of Palms Classic in Ft. Myers, FL, thinks 6'6 Jamal Owens from Miami (Carol City) FL, who verbally committed to Florida Atlantic today, might be an even bigger sleeper. Not only is Owens a big time slasher/athlete, but he also attracted interest from schools like Texas, Kentucky, Virginia Tech, Stetson, and SMU after they saw him in July. However, in the end, it looks like Owens wanted to stay home, as he discouraged those schools from recruiting him and made his verbal commitment to the Owls right after making his official visit to the school.

Its great Owens and other athletes come to FAU to stay close to home but I am looking forward to the time when I read that a recruit's reason is the quality of the program.

Walters may be the one who gets FAU invited to another conference. We shall see how he does this season. That and the dome.

True the dome will play a part in recruiting but the quality of the program starts this year with Rex. The Dome can speed things up but the Coach is probably the number one reason a kid comes to a program then the fact of staying close to home, then the facilities. Think a minute, if a kid sees a coach that is bringing its team to conference, then to the regionals,and so on nut steady grows. That's the attraction and with a new program it's more of competing right away and making a difference in the growth to reach those goals.

Last year when Matt came to the University the Buzz started and when he left most of us thought "That Sucks". But Rex was named the Head and it hasn't slowed a thing as a matter of fact it has gained much more momentum then I expected.

If the Dome doesn't get built right away the program is not going to wait and I would bet a beer on it.

its a one in a hundred shot without the facilities. Smaller schools come and go without the facilities, every year its a new 'cindarella' program. the idea is to be there year in and year out. i.e. UF.

The only program that is worth going to at this point is the Big East which has enough basketball school, football could bring us there and thats it.

Conference USA would be pointless, its in a downward spiral. Stay in the sunbelt till we get the big east offer.

I agree Exit, the big east is the way for us to go, but our Football program will probably have to be the one that takes us there. We'd have to make some major improvements in Basketball to compete with the likes of those teams, it's like the SEC of the basketball world.
