Hugh Douglas back in the day changed my way of thinking... players sign or they don't, and in the long run you might be happier they never did. No need to stress about it or even give it more than a few minutes of your time.
I used to follow KU recruiting and just got tired of hearing the same ole BS from all the recruits about how KU is so great and then choosing Minnesota or some such bullshit. Just gave up on it because the "experts" like Shay, or the guys at Phog know about as much about where a kid will end up as I do.
And even if kid X chooses KU, God only knows what type of player he's going to end up being. So, I just wait until the kid commits and see where he is as a freshman to really comment on where they are going to fit.
