Lowe First in the Door

A huge tip of the hat to “primacyone” for finding this link and sharing it on this fantastic entry regarding recruiting.

The shoe camp season has officially begun, and the Nike All-American camp kicked things off. The Hickory Husker shared:

The first head coach in the gym for the 2:30 games? How about new NC State head man Sidney Lowe. It is his first outing as the Pack’s leader and he didn’t waste any time finding a seat front and center for the afternoon games.

Lowe wasn’t the only head coach making it in to the NIFS Center. Head coaches in the house included: Bill Self (Kansas), Paul Hewitt (Georgia Tech), Herb Sendek (Arizona State), Ben Howland (UCLA), Tom Crean (Marquette), Bruce Weber (Illinois), Rick Barnes (Texas), Jay Wright (Villanova), Bob Huggins (Kansas State), Matt Painter (Purdue), Sean Miller (Xavier), Mike Anderson (Missouri), Steve Fisher (San Diego State), Sean Sutton (Oklahoma State), Dave Leitao (Virginia), Seth Greenberg (Virginia Tech), Greg McDermott (Iowa State), Lute Olson (Arizona), and others.�

Obviously, Sidney Lowe was not playing around when he said that he was “Ready for This”. (Link)

    How much do you want to bet that Lowe and Sendeck didn’t sit together?
    Actually, I wish Sendeck well as long as it isn’t at State’s expense. Lowe certainly made a statement (what kind we will see). Go Sid!

    I would love to have been able to watch and listen, as I’m sure Sid looked at Barnes, Sendek, Miller, Wright, and others with that patented grin that says “I’ve got a secret and I’m not going to tell”.


    Excitement building

    This could be the next big step for Sid and the program he wants to restore. Hickson and Vaughn should be names atop the list of big men we want, along with combing the local byways of NC for any sleeper big men. But this camp and Sids emerging on the scene front and center send a clear message to the rest of the coach’s out there. It sounds like the depth of big men and the format (atleast 3 passes on offensive possesion) at this camp will make a short list that Hickson and Vaughn sit atop potentially longer. A few interesting preps there: Jerai Grant (pf from DeMatha), Alabi, 7’1″ who likes to run the floor and fill the lanes, and Monroe a big guy from the Big Easy (Towe still has some great contacts).

    Just like on the court, I’m sure Sidney was smiling like a cheshire cat but looking for every opportunity to pounce like a little pit bull.

    I stated in an earlier thread that I kinda lost interest in tracking and researching recruits for reasons that I don’t need to go into here. I don’t know and I was wondering if Chris Wright is really considered a major “franchise” type player right out of high school or is he just the best of all that were considering NCSU before the coaching change? If he is then great, he will definitely get early playing time at NCSU. If he’s not, he seems to be demanding it anyway.

    Atta Boy Mr. Lowe. When UNC lost its recruiting edge under Gutheridge and Phil (Burp) Ford, Doherty took over and was known as one of the hardest working coaches on the recruiting trail. His effort paid off as he recruited and signed the players that won it all and put UNC recruiting back to the forefront. Nice to see Mr. Lowe taking the same road. I’ve been very impressed by Lowe and his staff so far.
