Carte'Are Gordon is transferring from St. Louis

Tom Noie insinuated that ND might be interested in Gordon, whom we recruited out of high school as a top-75 recruit.

On the other hand, the linked article suggests that Gordon probably wouldn't be a fit at ND. Our last highly recruited player from the St. Louis area definitely was not a fit.


a few long ago ND BB recruits from St Louis

In 1950-51 ND basketball recruited 6'5 Dick Rosenthal from St Louis McBride HS

1952-53 ND BB added 6'5 Lloyd Aubrey St Louis DeAndries

Both Rosenthal & Aubrey were named 'Chuck Taylor' Prep AA(in the days before the Parade & McDonalds Prep AA teams- link..albeit Rosenthal hometown is mislabeled on roster.

1953-54 ND BB addded 6'7 Hank Luepke from St Louis

then
a 1959-60 ND recruit-Bill Kurz 6'8 from Quincy, Ill actually transferred from ND to St Louis U(and had a decent career for the Billikens)


...as the link points out, Chuck Taylor's HS AA game/team left out any African American players...hence the reason the All Star game died out by the mid-50s...just around the time that Parade Prep AA team replaced it.


slightly different recruiting question

Olson, do you know anything about the basketball recruits coming in for the fall of '48?

My Grandfather-In-Law had a letter he received from Coach Krause telling him that there wouldn't be room for him that year due to the boys coming back from the war. He ended up playing for a smaller school in Indiana.

Don't know how serious his recruitment was, but have always been curious who got the spots.

also the kid has a ton of baggage.

I'd prefer Brey bring in a guard who can make shots.


I'd prefer that our guards recruited to make shots, do so.

And that Brey raises the level of athleticism in his recruits.


LaPhonso Ellis was great *

Nor was I advocating for a blanket refusal to recruit players from the area.


I knew that... *
