    Extremely under recruited players

    Regardless of the reasons, who are some players that you wouldn't have minded playing at Xavier had Xavier had a crystal ball.

    Man, if Wally had been at XU I think the program would have advanced even faster. Kind of hard to believe how stagnant Miami got with Coach Coles after such attention whatever year that was in the late 90s.

    But I guess if we're going for Mac standouts…Ron Harper would have been a great star. Not sure he would have selected XU over Miami at the time, but who knows?

    Not diminishing Wally but Damon Frierson helped those Miami teams plenty; IIRC he was Indiana Mr B.

    Wasn't Ron Harper supposed to go to UD but had some academic or some other issues?

    Ron Harper has a speech impediment and Miami had an outstanding speech pathology program that provided him with the assistance he needed to excel in school. Dude was straight up amazing as a college basketball scorer
    We've come a long way since my bench seat at the Fieldhouse!
