Do you think they'd trade Jordan McCabe or Derek Culver or Emmitt Matthews Jr for any of our guys? I'm pretty sure both McCabe and Matthews were ranked lower than any of our recruits.

Yet somehow, they were physically ready. They play 25+ minutes a game (after suspensions). They will more than likely be there for 4 years. And the WVU coaches have them ready to play late in the season (the Culver kid is turning into a force, and both McCabe and Matthews have performed better than any of our freshman down the stretch, with Matthews at least being debatable).
Even though I disagree with you about Rex, this is spot on. Certainly strength and conditioning in the off season is going to help the freshman, don't get me wrong. Certainly strenghth could help Nate in defensive rebounding but he's not a guy they ever had in the post and he won't be until Mooney and Juwan leave. The freshman- Nate and Dane- could have played better regardless of strength and conditioning, especially since they had extra practice and game time with the foreign tour.
