Hoops Recruit Durand Scott X's out Pitt
Apparently Durand Scott has narrowed his list to two team. Those teams do not include Pitt. UCONN and Miami seem to be Scott's top two and he should decide soon. I understand UCONN. It is a perennial power, with a great fan base, playing in the best league in the nation, with a good coach. But Miami, I'm not sure what these players are looking at. Pitt is head and shoulders above Miami when considering facilities, fan base, coaches, and I believe talent at this point. People in Miami couldn't care less about their college basketball team. Half of them probably don't even know one exists. I remember times in the past when they had ranked teams and couldn't even fill half of the stadium. I believe Miami is a decent team this year, but they are not on the level of Pitt. Also, Pitt plays in the best league in the country. Hopefully, this report is false, but all signs point to no.
