Yesterday there were several posts about the lack of basketball talent at PU. The question should be asked by Jon to Gary Walters. As AD it is his reponsibility to represent the Atheltic Department to the Administration and to the public. If Princeton has made a sea change about admissions, then he should tell us all so that we change our expectations. If not, then what other factors does he see as being the problem with recruiting. We can speculate all day lone, but Walters should know the answers and should tell us. He is supposed to be one of the best AD's around.

At the Friends of Princeton Basketball meeting during Reunions 2007, Gary Walters was the person who first brought up the fact that the Tigers' talent level was not where it needed to be. He's certainly aware of the issue and that changes are needed.

Meanwhile Harvard gets another 6 10 commitment, so that is two 6 10's and a 6 9 recruit.......

Did Gary Walters specify why the talent level had dropped off? Some have said that it's because the Princeton style of play is not attractive to many recruits. This may be true to some extent but unlikely to be a major cause since many schools now run Princeton sets and have no trouble getting recruits. Did Walters say what changes are being made?

Gary did not say anything specific that I recall beyond that statement. I think there may have been discussion about the incoming (i.e. current) freshman class and the fact that they weren't going to be immediate difference-makers.

This event was held only six weeks after Coach Johnson had been hired and it was the first time many Princeton alums were getting a chance to speak with Sydney, so any talk of changes out of Gary during his introduction of the new men's basketball coach would have been:

-Drawing the spotlight.

-Premature for public discussion.
