Now that the dog and pony stage is over, recruits have to sit back and figure out what to make of their various offers and, in some cases, non-offers at least at this point.

Take RJ Hampton who has been offered by Duke and Kansas, but not Kentucky and Michigan.

He says that “[s]ome schools just have their own way of doing it. I don’t take myself too serious so it doesn’t bother me. Michigan wants me on campus and they want to be the first school to see me when open gyms start, and I’m confident Kentucky will offer too. I know the work I put in. I’ll get the offers.”

Good attitude.

Jon Scheyer is quoted here about Duke’s approach. Here’s what he has to say: “Every school has their way of going about it; we’re different because we offer a small number of guys. Our vetting process takes time because we like to build a relationship with the kid, their family and do our due diligence. When we’ve offered a guy, trust me, we’ve seen the kid a lot and we’ve done our homework on the fit. It’s pretty tedious. It’s important to be upfront.”
