BUY or SELL? Travis Ford's Recruiting Ability

Has enough talent come through Stillwater to truly label Travis Ford as an excellent recruiter?

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The 2015 basketball class was shaping up to be one of Travis Ford's best ever, but after missing on the second high profile recruit yesterday, is Ford the recruiter he's credited to be?

The 2015 class could still be one of Ford's most notable. The Number one big man, Diamond Stone, has shown interest in OSU, and four or five star (depending on where you look) point guard Jawun Evans has already verbally committed to the Pokes.

During Ford's tenure in Stillwater he's brought in some incredible talent. Markel Brown, Le'Bryan Nash, and Marcus Smart bolster Ford's resume, but who's after that? Brian Williams was a 3-star athlete that showed lots of promise, but he's no longer with the program.

The 2014 class is about to get to work, and Oklahoma State's ranks 27th in the country according to Rivals. Two 4-star players, Small forward Joe Burton and power forward Mitchell Solomon, highlight this year's class as both rank in Rivals top 100. So we ask you...

BUY or SELL? Travis Ford's recruiting ability.

Is only three proven players enough to be considered an elite recruiter? Give us your thoughts in the comments.
