It is too bad, but the ultimate goal is ISU victories and if he contributes to a significant haul of those then it becomes a bit easier to get the ISU recruits through this needle's eye.
When one sees the talent from Indiana on the floor for so many teams in the NCAA's, the quality depth is apparent. Being a recruit of a Top 20 program 'validates' a HS player ahead of what may be a superior or equal player. Same way a Harvard Degree will get you into a job that a degree from hundreds of other school will not get you.
Living in Virginia, I have not seen Rhett play since the WV Classic his freshman year and he was unforgettably good as a 9th grader. I am sure he has progressed and will be a fine player for the Sycamores.
