Basketball Recuiting Scorecard, updated

For a while, I have tracked out hoops recruiting because I contend that the current malaise of our program is the severe shortage of quality players we have brought in and/or kept since Dan's little trip to WVU. With the Sims departure, here is an updated report....(Actually, the 05-06 class looks better every week, and better than 06-07.).
