as I'm the coach, recruit someone for one
year, recruit someone who's not interested
in getting a degree, an education. We've
had some opportunities- no guys I'm
going to name-to recruit people like d1.at."
That's not the case elsewhere_
Increasingly, according to coaches and recruiting
experts, the search for new talent has
shifted as programs protect themselves
from players like Georgia Tech's Stephon
Marbury, who jumped ship in 1996 after
a single season.
"I think they take it into consideration,"
said Bob Gibbons ' 61, a talent evaluator
and producer of the North Carolina-based
All Star Sports Report "They try to pro-
ject kids who are likely to go early, and
who's likely to stay four years."
Georgia Tech coach Bobby Cremins
said he now shies away from one-year
wonders unless there's an obvious tie to
Adanta or Georgia Tech. Thus he spent
considerable effort attempting to recruit
New York's AI Harrington, whose grand-mother lives in Adanta, only to see the

skipping college to join the NBA.
Fogler, whose program has become a
national power the past few years, chuckled
at the notion he'd steer clear of a top
prospect lest he lose him early. "I want
to coach one of those guys [who is] that

Minnesota coach Clem Haskins, who
directed the U.S. squad to a gold medal
in last summer's Goodwill Games and
took his Gophers to the 1997 Final Four.
"I try to recruit people that maybe aren't
as good as the superstar, because the
superstar is going to leave me in two
years. I want kids that I can develop so
we can win championships and win
games. I like guys who stay four years."
Haskins contrasts this style of recruiting
to that ofpremier basketball schools like
Carolina, Duke and Kentucky, which he
