Which is what makes this totally puzzling. Wade is a shyster, I would expect Reid to see through the BS.

We dont know the details. We are impugning efton and his entire family.

It could very well be that Efton had second thoughts about Pitt.

Capel has struck out on every elite big pitt has recruited in the last 4 years. Wahab, akok akok, Reid, Cockburn etc.

Wade, in that same time, has a track record with getting elite bigs to the nba

Seems like an easy decision to go with LSU.

Reminds me of Carl Hall screwing us over and running over to Gregg Marshall and Wichita

Some people don't care who they are dealing with as long as the check clears. Hopefully they get whatever they were told that they would get but when you deal with people like Wade who knows what will happen.

Reid sure is a lucky guy to have Uncle Duncan white knighting for him on the boards
Its just fact. In 3 seasons, Capel is 14-19, 16-17 and 10-12 at pitt; he has never finished higher than 12th in the ACC. He has brought in zero...zero bigs that produce.

Meanwhile, wade is 18-15, 28-7, 21-10 and 19 -10 while finishing no less than 9th and 3 top 3 finishes in the SEC. All while developing and recruiting 3 bigs to LSU: Duop Reath, Nazr Reid and Trenton Watford.

Pretty simple choice with or without an illegal financial transaction.

Lest we forget. Capel dumped VCU for Oklahoma. He came to visit with the sooners in 09-10 with top 100 starting center Tiny Gallon 6-9 300 pounds.

Larry Sanders more than held his own in an 82-69 rout.

You seem to minimize how financial transactions influences elite players to commit to LSU, which in turn, improves his chance of a winning record. Lastly,, you also give Frank a lot of credit for developing bigs .Frank played golf in high school not basketball.

Yeah, and his Blake Griffin OU team beat the crap out of us. That would be national player of the year as a sophomore, number 1 overall NBA draft pick, NBA rookie of the year, six time All-Star, five time All-NBA player Blake Griffin.

But sure, Franklin Wattisworth Willberforce Fitzwilliam Wade has a better eye for talent, which is why he recruited Eric Maynor to VCU.

With all respect DL, Wade hasn't been at LSU long enough to have a track record of getting elite bigs to the NBA. And most elite bigs are going to the NBA as long as no one messes them up.

Read Grisham's new novel, "Sooley". Besides being the usual good read from him, he gives a nod and wink toward the reality of high level college basketball. To think that player and families do not break NCAA regs in 2021 is beyond naïve. That being said, I know zero about what happened with Reid and LSU!
