Curious...had the Aces shown interest in Williams?

At this late date in the recruiting process, we'll probably have to contact 15 recruit potentials to find a couple who aren't pretty deep in their decision process. I'd bet that the staff is scouring the availables pretty hard, but there are a bunch of kids that our new style of play will appeal to. Wasn't the case during the Simmons era. When you are known as a half-court team, you effectively narrow your prospect base. Gonna be a new deal under Walter, but it'll require some selling and a body of work in the '18-19 season.

You hit the "nail on the head" re: today's breed of HSer's and the 1/2 court offense. Indiana State is still looking a "big or two," but given Lansing's 4 yr. losing record, and his obvious inability to DEVELOP the big men he recruits, it's likely gonna be a "dry well" for him. Who wants to play that type of style? The have a current player (Bronson Kessinger, 6'8" 240 lbs.) which both UE & WKU recruited out of HS (you might recall his compound lower leg fracture which forced him to RS yr. #1). Lansing has failed miserably in developing this kid.
