In this day and age "offers" are handed out to high school hoop stars at a rate that causes even the most casual college basketball fan to question the validity of this action. At the Fullcourt Press Cream of the Crop, BABC (Boston Area Basketball Club) star Bruce Brown stated that he had more than 40 offers. However, when asked about which of those 40 had coaches frequently showing up to his games at the Cream of the Crop, he offered only three: UMass, Indiana, and Boston College.
