The talent gap between Connecticut and Butler isn’t just talk. The Huskies are steeped in 4-star prospects and have two 5-star guys, not to mention half a dozen 3-star prospects.
The Bulldogs? They have one 4-star guy in Matt Howard. The rest are 3-star recruits or lower.
Those numbers – compiled by the Louisville Courier-Journal’s Rick Bozich – should serve as a stark reminder in the differences between the two teams. Yes, recruiting rankings don’t always pan out, but they’re a helpful gauge for raw talent on each roster.
Think about that when the game’s going on tonight. Is the talent going to win out?
