Big 12 beware: Knight, Sutton make recruiting gains-Link

After turning water to wine for three seasons at Texas Tech, getting 23 victories per year from a collection of mostly junior college transfers, Bobby Knight has now become dangerous.

Oklahoma State's Eddie Sutton is another old dog re-learning a new trick, capitalizing on his team's appearance in the 2004 Final Four to win the kind of high school recruits a coach (and program) of this caliber should have been getting all along. Sutton might not stick around as long as Knight, but he's laying the foundation for his son and heir, coach-designate Sean Sutton.
