I don't see how it could hurt. Find a football recruit take him to a game. That said I see indiana, duke, north carolina, ect. That do fine with out football programs. What are your thoughts?
I don't think it does much, maybe in against really good competition but, I feel like football helps basketball far more. Like McGary last year.
It doesn't hurt. Last year, we had a big football recruiting weekend during the Michigan-Ohio basketball game and we ended up with 8 commits that day. I think it's good for them to see that there are things other than football to do around campus.
I agree with this. I think it can really help the football program show the overall school spirit, and it gives a hint as to what the atmosphere at a football game could be like.
If I'm a coach at Michigan, and there are a bunch of recruits in for one of the big basketball games (like the OSU game), after the basketball game is over, I'd take them all over to the Big House. I'd have the official numbers on the attendance at the basketball game, and ask all the kids what they thought of the atmosphere there. Then, I'd tell them to imagine 10 times as many people packing the Big House and going crazy for them.
