THREE teams in the Top-10! Four squads ranked in this week’s :

Recruiting:  Tugs finishes his final visit.  Family says decision due mid-December… or earlier. Decision Pending for Brian Tugs Bowen…

Recruiting Notes:  – Brian has former teammates at both MSU and UTexas.   Arizona is the presumed leader at this time.  MSU presumed 2nd, with UT and Creighton rounding out the quartet.

The 3 state schools are about the same.  Football 1st state-sponsored universities. Large and somewhat impersonal with 20-30+ thousands of students.  Not especially noted for academics, and are basketball factories.  Creighton is (and has been from the outset) the outlier as the Basketball 1st, small, private, academic school.  Be a Creighton Bluejay, Brian!  Our best basketball…is ahead of us.
