Be the one that elevates a program from good, to elite.
I may be a few dozen credits short of my Butler psychology degree, but rest assured, it doesn’t take Sigmund Freud to understand the magnitude of those words as it registers in the 17-year-old brain.
Especially when they come out of the mouth of Brad Stevens; and especially as they relate to the surging Butler basketball program.
As much credit as Stevens has earned from basketball TV analysts to casual pick-up game connoisseurs and everyone in between, the fact remains simple: the 36 year old has yet to really make a splash in the recruiting aspect of college basketball.
New conference, new challenges. His time needs to be now.
Currently, Stevens and the Butler staff have offered scholarships to four players rated four stars or above by rivals.com in the class of 2014.The question is, will these lofty aspirations (judging by their recruiting history, at least) finally produce a long-coveted blue-chip recruiting class?
Well fear not, Coach Stevens. Simply follow these recruiting sales pitches specifically tailored to each of the top players on your board, and these kids will be dawning the navy and white in no time.
