It seems like most of our players come from JUCO. It's incredibly hard to build programs this way and hopefully when we get the new arena we can recruit some good High School talent. Take JSU for example. They won 9 out of their last 12 games and won first round in the OVC tournament. Their best players are Freshmen and Sophomores. We finish 10-17 and those we don't lose this year, we lose after next year. Just need to do things differently and hopefully we can do that beginning next year.

Not to beat a dead horse, but if a high school player really has the talent to play at the DI level, they have about 275 better choices than Troy. Sure hooking up at will at The Front Porch helps, but can you imagine the possibilities with the a new Arena. Cudos to Dear Leader for getting it done.

With that said, DM/DF miht be the best recruiters at the Mid-Major level. Seriously, we are lucky we aren't Chicago State or NJ Tech.

NJIT's record: 13-16

Troy's: 10-18
