Okay, someone help me out here. I get who benefits from this: smaller time coaches who don't want their recruits poached and lesser known recruits who don't want to lose their spot at the last second. 

But....how does this benefit the NCAA? There's no clear profit motives. Is this a subtle attempt by the NCAA to even the playing field so their ratings improve? That's all I can come up with....

My personal favorite. Taught this boy swim lessons at Wedgewood country club about a decade ago! Great kid, great parents!

If this were Kentucky, I'd have a problem with Thad. But Ohio State is NOT a CBB blueblood. We are not on the same level as UK/Duke/UNC, etc. 

Im not trying to excuse a 17-14 performance. This was not a good year. But let's not discount the fact that Thad made OSU basketball relevant. 5 B1G championships and 2 final four appearances.....the man has earned his keep.

The source article doesn't discuss recruits beyond the 5-stars, though, so you won't find anything on why those two aren't on the list. 

It's because they're committed to Ohio State. Can't put Bama's recruiting record in jeopardy.

Would be awesome to pull a shocker, but I feel like somebody would know something by now if we were really in the running. Think this one is going to the bad guys.....oh well, we'll just have to settle for the top 3 players in Texas :)

Agreed. I suspect ND wanted to can him this year but there isn't anyone much better on the market.
