You have to start somewhere, I don't think anyone thinks we're building a national title contender here, but how many years have we watched NCAA tourney with teams with overlooked MN kids playing key roles? Not just high end onesAm I crazy for thinking that all this celebration for some 3 stars is a bit.... Over the top? Pitino was bringing in 3-4 stars every year. Who cares where they're from... We're still missing on the key prospects in the state.
Secondly, all the fans of the program are celebrating Johnson's hire because of these signings. Let's hold off a bit until, you know, he starts coaching.
Idk, just seems like he's getting celebrated for some pretty minor achievements before the real challenges begin.
Regardless of what you think of Ben Johnson hire, he was hired to keep MN kids here and build those connections that Pitino failed to do, and yes, we'd have loved to get 2 that went to MSU and Purdue, but reality is we won't get them all and Ben will have to recruit outside of MN as well.
But I see no reason 1/3-1/2 our roster couldn't be MN kids and have great success with that route
