How about this 2008 recruiting class

5 seniors to replace . . . Coach is swinging for the fences and is in on some great kids.  How about this recruiting class in 2008: Greg Monroe 6-9 PF

Romero Osby 6-8 SF

Willie Warren 6-4 SG

Travis Releford 6-3 CG

Rotnei Clarke 5-10 PG

Clarke and Warren are great friends.  Warren is a great shooter, and Clarke recently scored 60 points in a state playoff game.  Osby is a force inside and is developing into a wicked wing.  We all know about Releford, who now plays in Kansas and was an AAU teammate of Tyrel Reed and, I believe, Conner Teahan too.  Releford's been playing pickup games in Lawrence during the summer for a couple of years now, from what I hear.  Monroe is only the consensus #1 high school prospect in the class.

Now that would be a special class, and Coach Self is just the guy to pull it off!
