      I know he’s a WSU fan and he wanted to play for Marshall, but if he was hell bent on WSU, he’d have waited a few days for the dust to settle.
      Actually, he waited until the final day of the early signing period. However, he could have waited until the Spring signing period but obviously he did not want to do that.

        Ah, fair point.

        I guess I didn’t realize it was the last day.

        My bad.

          No, I would not. If he or his Dad really wanted to sign with WSU they could easily have contacted IB or LG and asked them if they are still interested and, if so, please send over a LOI. And we don't know what messages Sterling and his Dad had sent to WSU. They may conveyed in one way or another that he would not be signing with WSU if 3G was not going to be the head coach. 3G resigned on the 17th, Chapman signed his LOI on the 18th (the last day of the early signing period. In any case, as you point out, WSU did not have a permanent Head Coach under contract upon 3G's resignation.

          Although if I was a very sought after player I would consider waiting until the spring signing period and see where the chips fall and what other opportunities might open up. Now whether or not I would have the patience and confidence to do that as a 17 or 18 year old kid maybe not.

            • Quotables: Isaac Brown Preseason

              So far I like everything I am hearing from Coach Brown. However, will have to see how his approach and leadership translates onto the court. I am really, really pulling for Coach Brown to do well.

                True. If he wasn't happy with the HCGM situation and coach not being at WSU, he could wait to sign in the spring when a) the WSU coaching situation might be figured out and / or b) his recruitment picks up and he has more choices.

                      • I don't fault Sterling at all. Best of wishes! I _hope_ you regret it some day, because that will mean that HCIB panned out. But I don't fault ya, kid!

                            77 seems pretty fair. I think I would take that. Not that I don't want much more than that, because I do. Just being realistic.
