If you have not noticed by now, following the recruiting game is interesting to say the least.
If you don't believe me, just ask Kadeem Jack.
Jack made the decision to go to prep school instead of attending a school with plenty of recognition with the rumor being that he was praying for a North Carolina offer that he simply was never going to get.
Enter the Wear twins.
With there being a transfer, Jack now looks like he could get that offer to UNC and, for the second time in recent memory, choose to go a different route than expected.
"Yeah, I was thinking about prep school, but to me North Carolina is North Carolina," Jack tells InsideCarolina.com.
"One thing I like about the program is if you go there and you work hard you can accomplish a lot, so I think that's the best thing about it. And if you go there and work hard you're clearly in a position to do a lot of things that other places can't do."
Obviously UNC is a great program and nobody would deny that, but the Tar Heels took a step back last year and will take another next year most likely.
With that being said, Jack's comments are exactly what is wrong with recruiting these days.
When a school goes to recruit a player, the opinion of that player is often the least of its worries. In fact, the school has to convince the parents, handlers, friends, and more if it wants to have a good chance of landing a highly regarded player.
Jack's comments about working hard and accomplishing a lot go for every single school in the country.
In fact, it goes for basically anything in life.
Those that work hard get rewarded and those that do not usually get passed. However, Jack has been convinced that hard work at North Carolina is different from hard work at Arizona or Washington or any other major school.
Simply put, it is still difficult to blame Jack.
Sure, people are going to be upset but the reality of the situation is that Jack is part of a system that needs fixing in a bad way.
The problem is that, as of now, there's no solution.
