I think unless you are UNC, Kentucky, Duke or kansas, I think you have to accept the fact that it will be rare that you get a 5 star kid unless the kid is in state or has some connection to your school or coach, and even then, you'll have to fight off the big 3.

I'm trying really hard not to get down on Anderson because I've come to accept his recruiting/coaching tendencies, but something is obviously missing. Non-blue blood programs get 5-star players, as evidenced by Perry going to Mississippi State. These kids have to feel the love (whatever that may actually mean). This staff seems to only excel with undervalued recruits. Anderson can usually get the most out of them, but that isn't enough to get over the hump as a program.

I'm at the point now where I feel like if you're okay with how this staff recruits, you're basically saying you're okay with the ceiling of the program being severely capped. Like, the Sweet 16 or Elite 8 is now the Final 4 or National Championship to better recruiting programs. Because Anderson is a good coach, but he isn't a good enough coach to be able to take this kind of talent all the way like a Jay Wright did or Mark Few or Gregg Marshall might be able to. I generally like the recruits Anderson signs in the early period and his non-scramble late period signees, but we're always short on difference-makers. We'll have guys like Hannahs, Kingsley, Macon, Barford, Bell, etc. that become difference-makers for the Hogs but aren't big enough difference-makers on a national level to propel the team to real success. Ideally, a Dusty Hannahs is a great 3rd/4th option on a legit team with real hopes of going deep. Ideally, Moses Kingsley is not your best pro prospect or even your second best pro prospect (that might be pushing it). Ideally, you're not hoping and praying two JUCO guys come back for their senior seasons so you can have a shot at have All-SEC talent. Gotta have more guys like Perry and Monk to really do something. It really shouldn't be this hard to keep in-state/deep state-connected guys. If the staff were batting even .500, it'd make a big difference.

Am I willing to accept the Sweet 16 or Elite 8 has the best that can be hoped for? It's hard not to get down on the staff here, regardless of the reason. And I don't think we can look at what has happened here and definitely tell ourselves it was because his dad was sick. It is not clear at all that he ended up at MSU for that reason. I love Mike and I really, really want it to work with him, but come on, man. We gotta start getting more ARKANSAS-BORN elite talent. So far, you've gotten ONE guy. It's hard to look past.


I've said it before, but if the coach that was hired after Pelphrey had a name other than Mike Anderson, the very same people saying Mike is the greatest thing at Arkansas in 20 years would have been calling for his head after year 4.

The again I actually think most of the Mike PR crew posting here are fake. I just happen to be bored today.

But when they are in state you have to keep them, and not lose them to MISSTAKE State.

Yep, nothing says winning like a 5 seed and a 8th seed in the ncaat in 5 seasons. Nothing says success like watching the top in state players go play at places like KY, FLA, Minn, and Miss St in stead of staying to play for the Hogs.
you must of not went to school the last time I checked 27-9, 26-10 is a winning record and he hasn't had a losing record so I could say that's called winning and not losing

We're talking about a kid originally from LR, that plays on a LR AAU team with 4 other teammates committed to Arkansas.....that we lost to Mississippi State. Not Kansas or Kentucky. Mississippi State. Despite all the strong ties.

We had all of that, including an actual commitment and comments about Arkansas being his Kentucky, Kansas, or Duke.

Any time a player decommitts from a program on the rise (one that has at least been in the NCAA tournament in recent years) for a program that hasn't topped 10 conference wins in what is precieved to be a "down" SEC since 2007-2008 (that will be 11 years by the time Perry suits up there), it's going to raise red flags. It's also been that long since Howland took a team to the Final 4. Nevermind the Final 4, it's been that long since Howland took a team to the second weekend of the NCAA tournament. Reggie Perry was like 6 or 7 years old the last time a Ben Howland team did anything of note. Mississippi State has been to the NCAA tournament two times in this period of time (2007-2008 and 2008-2009). Arkansas has at least been to the NCAA tournament two of three seasons and made the SEC tournament final also in two of three seasons.

I get that dad played there. Undoubtedly a factor. I get that it's actually a lot closer to home that Fayetteville. Obviously a factor. But it's really not "close to home" like he said he was looking for. Maybe the family does view Ben Howland in a better light than Mike Anderson. Understandable. Just don't blow smoke. You'd have a lot less mad Hog fans if you weren't trying to sell them what clearly now looks like a load of crap. It never smelled right from the jump and it still doesn't. You're upset that you're getting criticism on Twitter? Boo hoo. What do you think it's going to be like in the NBA? You don't have the option to only get praise. When you piss people off and you put yourself out there on social media, you have to take the good with the bad. But it would help tremendously to just be honest.

I'm pretty sure he doesn't give a crap about pissing off Arkansas fans just like Monk doesn't.  It's pretty funny that people on HV think they are so important that athletes actually give a hoot what they think.  The young man will have a million reasons not to care all in $$ signs a couple of years from now!  LMAO!  Can we get over it and move on PLEEEEZZZZZ!

He's an Arkansas native and lived in Little Rock until a few years ago.  He committed and called Arkansas his Kentucky, Kansas, or Duke.  He was set to play with a bunch of his friends and current teammates.  Both Anderson and Howland were the coaches at their respective programs when he committed.  Nothing has changed, except the amount of shady.

I no longer have any expectation for Arkansas to be able to land a 5-star player, including those within the state. At least under this coaching staff. Bobby Portis looks like an extreme outlier at this point.

Non-blue blood programs get 5-star players, as evidenced by Perry going to Mississippi State. These kids have to feel the love (whatever that may actually mean).

Actually one thing has changed, Perry is going to play for MSU and not UofA. The rest is all sour grapes on the part of Mike err I mean Hog fans.

I meant the reasoning of why he originally chose Arkansas over Miss State and every other school compared to now.  It isn't like Mississippi State just hired Howland or Anderson is leaving or we lost other commitments or we had a disappointing season since he committed or we switched systems since he committed.

If that family didn't care what people thought, his mom wouldn't have shown out like she did. And she likely reacted the way she did because it got to her son. It's obvious they give a crap what people think. It's just typical of today's society -- all praise and no criticism. It's fine for fans to get on Twitter and tell him how great he is but they don't want anything negative. That's not how it works.

It is just plain stupid to think otherwise...

No it doesn't but actually living in that state and then writing an emotion filled letter upon your commitment with the rest of your AAU team to a single specific college sorta does.

Right, but he lived in Little Rock.

Quote
Perry, who moved to Little Rock in the sixth grade and lived there until about three years ago, announced his decision on Twitter and said Arkansas was his equivalent to Kentucky, Kansas or Duke.

"Really when I say that, itís because everyone has a dream of going to one of those schools," Perry said. "They all look at them being one of the best college teams and they have to go there. Basically, Iím just saying this is my place where I can be the most successful.Ē

Perry said Anderson and the Arkansas staff were key in his decision.

"Theyíre experienced and Iíve known them for a while," Perry said. "Coach Anderson has a good winning record and I like what heís doing in his program."

He play AAU basketball in the summer for a Arkansas based club. He's had a relationship with his father all of his life. In recruiting sometimes its about relationships and connections. When Daryl Macon signed with the Hogs he talked about his grandfathers love for the Razorbacks. That might have played some part in Macon becoming a Razorback.

Reggie decided to listen to his father. I'm not mad at the kid because when I was 17 my father's word was the gospel at my house. I'm not upset at the kid and it's not Mike Anderson fault.

Reggie decided to listen to his father. I'm not mad at the kid because when I was 17 my father's word was the gospel at my house. I'm not upset at the kid and it's not Mike Anderson fault.

Again, nothing changed since his original commitment to ARKANSAS.

What was his father telling him when he originally committed to Arkansas?

None of the situations are ever the same, but the players are.  Projected to be one and done maybe two, highly recruited by top programs, and more often than not they end up NOT playing for the UofA.

As for Perry, who knows exactly why he changed his mind, and MSU is NOT a basketball destination, but the fact remains another top level kid that grew up in Ar is playing somewhere else.

It makes perfect sense that he wanted to be closer to home (which it is by several hours), and he wants to honor his dad. It's a solution to both of the problems he named when he decommitted (dad's illness, distance from home).  It has nothing to do with Mike if you consider those things. If it did, he wouldn't have committed here in the first place.

We're talking about a kid originally from LR, that plays on a LR AAU team with 4 other teammates committed to Arkansas.....that we lost to Mississippi State. Not Kansas or Kentucky. Mississippi State. Despite all the strong ties.
According to the Perrys he is not from Arkansas. So was he from ark?

He's an Arkansas native and lived in Little Rock until a few years ago.  He committed and called Arkansas his Kentucky, Kansas, or Duke.  He was set to play with a bunch of his friends and current teammates.  Both Anderson and Howland were the coaches at their respective programs when he committed.  Nothing has changed, except the amount of shady.

He is not an Arkansas native. He lived here in Jr. High.

No it doesn't but actually living in that state and then writing an emotion filled letter upon your commitment with the rest of your AAU team to a single specific college sorta does.
True, he had ties to those players but not DEEP ROOTED ties to the state. Once he left the state those ties became less and less over time.

Good post. About as simple and real as it gets. TRUE fathers have a lot of influence on their kids. Especially their sons.
