Oh that's right. You just pulled it out of your ass.

It's a long way to the ground from that horse's back.

Why are there so many good academic schools that don't recruit well? I think women's basketball maybe the recruits don't value education as much as you see in the other non revenue sports. Take the SEC. Championship game this year was Mississippi State (US News 176) vs. South Carolina (US News #107). Tennessee is US News #103 and recruits the most talent in the league. The best 3 schools are UGA (#56 US News), Florida (#50 US News), and Vanderbilt (#15 US News). You would think those schools would recruit better given their strong academics, if more players had that higher on their list of priorities. I think if education mattered a lot you would see a little more distribution of the top talent as opposed to the top talent going to the schools who win the most but maybe don't have the most prestigious academics.

In the Pac 12, Oregon had maybe the best 2016 class in the entire league, but they are one of the worst rated academic schools in the conference, #103 overall.

In the Big 10, Northwestern is at #12 nationally in US News but they don't recruit nearly as well as the Ohio State's and Maryland's. Northwestern while top academically might be bottom third in recruiting in the league.

In the ACC Notre Dame is the top team and recruits the best but Louisville (#171) is very good at recruiting while having the worst academic ranking in the league.

Of course you know that's not the point ...

The majority of players are far, far more concerned with the quality of basketball than the quality of the academic program. That's not disdain, that's just a fact.

Now whether they should be is another question entirely, but for most of us who deal with these girls and their parents, it's pretty clear it's not high on the priority list. There is an assumption that a degree from one Power 5 university is not that much different in terms of quality of life in the future than a degree from another one (Stanford and Duke excepted, and maybe Northwestern). Again, whether that assumption is justified is another question.

I get this same questioning on the Cal board, as many alums assume that everyone should want to go to Cal because of its elite academic reputation, but even if you grant Cal Stanford-like status, great athletes do not flock there as much as to Oregon, say.

Part of the problem may be that the academic standards keep some players out. Rightly or wrongly, that is the perception at some schools. I believe I've heard Tara mention once or twice the it kept her from getting certain recruits. (It's also something of a point of pride for Wisconsin football and MBB.) Also, some schools with high academic standards choose to somewhat de-emphasize athletics, even though they may play at a D-I level.

There are some other things to consider when you're talking about whether a school is academically "good" or not. Certain schools are pretty good across the board; others are excellent in a few fields but not in everything. This is why educators, and those who have been around them for a long time (in my case, my entire life), don't buy very heavily into the USN&WR rankings. And actually, a motivated student can get a pretty damn decent education just about anywhere she chooses, IF she applies herself and works hard at it. I guess it all depends on what you want from your education.

There is much evidence that players put the prior strength of the basketball team ahead of other factors like academics. As one example, someone here went uncharacteristically positive to support another denunciation, gushing over Georgetown University's academics. And yet Georgetown University has not had a top women's basketball program over the years. No women's basketball coach at Georgetown since 1981 has had a winning career record (Terry Williams-Flourney did have the program doing well for her final 3 or 4 years).

Sure, but that completely misses the point. First "most" players can't get in and wouldn't be considering those elite colleges whether they were athletes or not, so we're only talking about a limited universe of girls with basketball skills, physical makeup, test scores and grades. Second a lot of top athletes unfortunately come from family backgrounds where either education isn't valued, or is valued but isn't understood, and never get the advice they deserve to understand that there is a lifetime difference in the value of the degree between Northwestern and Louisiana Tech no matter how many banners hang in their respective gyms.

But plenty of smart girls with good grades and good guidance make the smart choice. Natalie Butler originally chose education. She didn't go to Georgetown because it had a great WBB program. Temi Fagbenle didn't pick Harvard based on basketball. Maya Dodson made it quite clear why she was picking Stanford when she could be going anywhere this fall. The rosters of Stanford, Notre Dame, Duke, Northwestern and other elite schools attract girls willing to do the work because they understand the opportunity. For those who don't understand, the extra schoolwork just gets in the way.

It's unfortunate to me when someone like Butler who understands chooses to waste the opportunity. That "the majority of players are far, far more concerned with the quality of basketball than the quality of the academic program" doesn't mean it's wise, it probably just means they're getting bad or inadequate advice. They're probably more worried about what they're wearing to the prom too. One would hope there would be adults around to help with priorities.

Guys, can we keep the focus on actual facts, not on commentary? I'm up in here trying to figure out where players are going, not to wade through condescension.

Keyan Brown, formerly of ODU, will finish her career at Virginia State. She left a very sweet and gracious post on Twitter.

Apparently proximity to the nest isn't a primary consideration.

TCU transfer AJ Alix will be making her decision on Sunday.

Is said to be between FSU and TAMU. She is a grad transfer and will be eligible immediately.

If she chooses FSU, it would really help fill the PG void of Brown and Romero and add much needed 3 point shooting. Averaged 13.1 points and 4.6 assists, shot 39% from the 3 last season.

Not a huge surprise as that is the coach she originally committed too. It could be a game changer for Arkansas, but it could also be pretty hard to move up the ladder in the SEC. However, Kentucky could slip since we lost Epps and Akhator to graduation.

Alix will finish her basketball career at FSU! Much needed up pickup for the Noles.

Dungee played a lot of minutes. From Oklahoma too.

Gianna Smith is transferring from Old Dominion

Mykia Jones is a double transfer. Started at Wake Forest, transferred to Georgetown, and is now transferring to Temple. As transfers rise, these double transfers will become more common.

Another double transfer that was mentioned a while ago was Tiffany Suarez from Virginia to Fordham to Eastern Michigan.

Some, perhaps a lot or even most, of the double transfers are graduate transfers. They can play immediately while attending grad school. That's not so crazy and may become more common.

Gianna Smith is probably transferring because her coach is gone. I wonder if Keyana Brown ans maybe even Mayana Jones saw that coming, or if their transfers were unrelated.

Really sad to see this. I thought she was a very good fit as well. Really was looking forward to seeing her future with OU.

Surprising that she was on the U16 National Team, but then only ranked as the #15 guard coming out of high school and not a McDonalds All-American.

I noticed her pic/bio have been pulled from the website's roster page, while the graduating seniors are still there. Hmmm. Confused

Purdue's 6'5 Bree Horrocks lands at Vandy, along with BC's 6'5 Marcella Fasoula. That will give Stephanie White quite the front line.....

They should not be eligible at the same time. Bree is a grad-transfer so she'll play this year, but Mariella is a regular transfer who will have to sit out a year. Also, I thought Mariella was only 6'3" at best.

Bree has two years since she graduated as a junior and red-shirt.

Bree tweeted, "I'm so excited to announce that I will be finishing my two years of college basketball and getting my master's from Vanderbilt University!"

And 6'3 post Manaya Jones, who left ODU is headed back to her hometown to play for HC Melissa McFerrin at University of Memphis.

Dazia Powell, 5'9 G who WAS going to play for ODU until Karen Barefoot left, has now verbally to Sylvia Hatchell at UNC. Hmmm...from one sinking ship to another?

That surprises me just because she already transferred once. I hope it works out for her, I always liked her when she was at Kentucky.
