07:20 AM ET 06.26 | One of the best players in Alabama, 5-foot-10, 155-pounder Justin Coleman, already has offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Butler, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Kansas State, Memphis, Tennessee, UAB and Vanderbilt, a list he plans to refine to as few as three schools in July. Coleman said top in-state prospects like Demetrius Houston, William Lee, Riley Norris and Lewis Sullivan are thinking about going to the same college program. ... Coleman said they are planning another "Fab Five" of talent all going to the same program like the famed recruiting class at Michigan. He said Hazel Green rising senior Lewis Sullivan is also a part of that idea. "Basically we are trying to see what school we are going to because we want to play for the same program like the Fab Five," Coleman said.

Huh?

Hopefully they won't end up like the previous "Fab Five" where the games didn't count.

Not sure this is necessarily a good arrangement. If you are more influenced by where your buddies are going than your own choice of a school/coach/program that fits you, then there will likely be problems. And not small ones, either.

"like the Fab Five" = "whoever pays us the most money!"

Collusion is supposed to be illegal

Those guys aren't talented enough to call themselves Fab Five.

I was thinking the same thing....12 schools have offered this kid and Butler is the only one of them that could be argued is a top-flight hoops school.
