"It's somewhere worse than a bad thing," Belmont coach Rick Byrd said. "It's creating a situation where you've got schools recruiting from other schools. You've got majors recruiting from mid-majors, literally. You've got kids thinking about whether they're going to stay with your program or go somewhere else when their senior year is over. It's like they're a senior in high school again."
"We need coaches to be frank on the front end, what their program is about," Belmont coach Rick Byrd said, "and then we need kids when they make their decision to stay there and not hop around looking for the next best thing because they didn't play 38 minutes a game as a freshman."
