Earlington , Roberts , Williams , Trimble , Caraher , Steere were all brought on board by Chis , Matt, etc .Throw in transfers , Herron, Figgy , Simon and Clark . Of course , there were misfires too. Eli Wright , Mikey Dixon . Ponds was Mullin ‘s Best recruit . Just saying , it’s only fair to balance the ledger . I do agree that Coach Anderson has done good work in developing the sophomores that Mullin recruited . Tariq Owens went to Texas Tech and did well . I think it’s a bit unfair to blame his 5 th year exodus on Mullin . Tariq wanted a bigger role on a contending team . He , essentially played the same role at TT but , got a lot more exposure there by being in the NCAA finals and realized his dream by playing in the NBA . Good for him .


You know I truly don't understand the reason behind your post.
We are finally all happy, with respect to SJU bball.
There has not been a negative post in 2 days.
We appreciate Coach Anderson and his staff's work ethic in coaching, recruiting, academic progress, discipline, tight rules, no drama, no transfers, in being a part of the local community and the way the season ended so positively, and you come around to piss on the parade by bringing up the former staff.
What purpose does that serve ???
Why can't you let sleeping dogs lie ?
SMH.
Lets be clear, the prior staff had nothing to do with the development of Williams, Earlington, Roberts, Champagnie, Rutherford, Dunn, Spears or Caraher. CMA had to recruit Herron and LJ, and the prior staff did leave him with Steere, Keita and Wright.
Lets please not reinvent history and lets give credit where credit is due.
CMA deserves a ton of credit for getting this rag tag group to win 17.5 games, to upset Creighton, Providence, Arizona, West Virginia.

. I think you misread most of my commentary . It wasn’t negative toward anyone . If you interpreted it that way , it’s on you . I said Mullin recruited these kids but , Anderson developed the talent they had . Maybe you missed that point . Recruiting kids is a Crap shoot . Transfers are often a function of a difference of opinion . The player doesn’t play and thinks he should , he transfers .

Suspending recruiting is really going to hurt teams like St John's.

Coach Anderson has to raise the talent level. We're losing Rutherford and Heron. LJ and Caraher may be gone too. There's a lot of spots to fill for next season.

We don't want to sign another kid like Sears just because he's available.

Would have hurt way more when we had coaches who waited until spring to sign their first recruit. . .

AMEN--4 signed in the fall period really helps; unlike the last few years when we were signing in May in time for the first summer semester. Last year CMA and his assistants were not around until mid to late April. While they came up with some really useful players, it will be interesting to evaluate their talent judgment when we see the fall signees next fall.
