Misses? Maybe

Hume--Tad saw him a lot as he played on Colorado Hawks with Kountz. Tad, and everyone else really, (no major offers) thought he was a tweener at Pac12 level. Not really a guard (too slow) not really a forward (too small) Appears he is proving them all wrong though. I think he could have played and contributed at CU. Pretty rare that a kid turns down a D1 offer to walk-on at another D1, so I dont think that type of offer from Tad would have made a difference,

Ross-He plays for a bad team where Coach Romar basically allows him to do whatever he wants. Scores a lot and gets a lot of assists,but he also broke the single season turnover record at Pepperdine averaging about 7 TO's a game! IMO he is a solid mid major guard but not a difference maker on a good team in a league like Pac 12.

Jessup-This was a miss. Tad saw a lot of him because JJ and Tads son played on same AAU team. Tad offered JJ a walk on spot for a year with a potential scholarship as a soph due to him already having commits from D. Brown and B. Peters at the guard spots. JJ said no thanks and has turned out to be better than both the guards Tad signed in that class.

Foster-Numbers game here. Only one scholarship available and sg is not a position of need with 2 recent signees already on roster at that position. Foster really blossomed his senior year and I think will be an all MWC type player by the time he is a junior.
