At UConn, they're saying that Texas is a threat, because Joseph's high school teammate Tristan Thompson has signed with the Longhorns. At UNLV, they're saying Minnesota might be the leader because Cory's brother Devoe and "another close Canadian friend" Mo Walker are there.
With the Gophers coming off a disappointing season--other than those 3 big wins in the Big Ten tournament--and with a number of players graduating and/or otherwise leaving the program at the end of the year, this recruiting class is big in both senses of the word. 6 kids. And vitally important to the Gophers' future.
And, so, it seems that the caliber of kids Tubby has already signed and/or is pursuing is maybe a cut below what one might hope. Except for Cory Joseph. That's how big Cory is to this program. He's probably the difference between competing for a Big Ten title and a continuing string of 5th or 6th place finishes.
Cory said he needs another week, maybe 2 to decide.
