    Yeah, hard to understand his silence. If for some reason we don’t get him it gets interesting.

    4 star PF Keon Ambrose-Hilton cut his list to 10 and X no longer being considered....thought Dante had a shot at keeping us in the running. And there was some interest in that Gabe Madsen kid but he committed to UC (along with his brother). If Carlson doesn’t become a Muskie one would think that X would focus on bringing in a guy in the 200 range to fill a specific need. Most likely there will be 3 open slots and transfer big will be on the want list come next fall regardless.

    I heard it from a recruiting analyst. Confirmed with a member of the staff.

    Jerry Meyer (Director of Basketball Scouting at 247) has a crystal ball into X (74% correct all time)
    Mark Miller (Wisconsin 247 Editor) has a crystal ball into X (70% correct all time)
    Brian Snow (our guy obvi) has one in for X (93%)
    Chris Fisher (UK recruiting insider) has one in for X (73%)
    Evan Flood (Wisconsin recruiting insider) has one in for X (68%)

    That's the 5 out of 6 crystal balls put in for Ben Carlson.

    BUT, what does the Magic 8 Ball say? I count on that for most of my important life decisions!

    Do we have a resident stats guru?

    So, what are our real chances with those many predictions at those respective percentages?

    Then throw-in 82’s 8 ball.

    The Carlson recruitment has gone south. It is looking like he is joining a teammate at Wisconsin. No announcement yet but Steele and company were in Minn. to make a last ditch effort and it does not appear to have been successful.

    Well, if this is true, then I never really wanted him anyway.

    If it's not true, then I love this kid and think he's the piece that will finally put us over the top and into the Final Four!

    Steele and staff believed it was a done deal after the last visit. Kid changed his mind. Not much you can do.

    Wisconsin was pitching to him that they would use him in a Frank Kaminisky type of role.
