Re: (no subject)
Talent wise I would think they would have to help Chicago State. But overall, the two recruits that used to be "five star" didn't do much at Overtime Elite, the prep pro league for 18-21 year olds. They must have maintained eligibility through the scholarship waiver aspect.
Chicago State at one point enrolled less than 100 freshman students in mid 2010's, but has since stabilized slightly. The Nigerian presidential election has become hot topic on campus as people are questioning if the one candidate actually attended or not.
Danimal they are independent. They have been the worst ranked D1 MBB school for years. They aren't going to make any dent in MBB.
Chicago state as a university was on life support. They lost a huge portion of their enrollment , I want to say over half maybe even 75%, in a short time. They were going to merge it with another campus or make it a jc
The state kept them opened, and there was an idea to add football to help bring in male enrollment similar to how smaller lower division schools do.
These guys went overtime elite, and ended up at Chicago state . I donít know what that says if their abilities, but maybe they got some wealthy donor to try and bring in some nice athletes and raise the profile of the school athletically.
Why would they go D2 with two five star recruits coming?
Chicago State needs to go D2. They have had the worst D1 CBB team for the past few years and are heavily overmatched.
Chicago State is no longer in the WAC. But they are thinking of starting a FCS football program.
Signed two five star recruits that played with A.J. in Florida. Sometimes the best recruiters are the players.
