Is July too much

So now that we've gone a summer where only July has been available, what impact did that have on recruiting? For a perspective on this, here's a column from ESPN's Andy Katz. Highlights include April probably staying as is and a great point on the quality of play after the kids have been on the road for 9 days. A fun side note to that was a coaches comment about wanting more time back on campus to work with the players already on the roster.

Consistent theme of more fundamentals as the USA continues to get battered on that in international play. Yes we win with great talent, but the international teams stay competitve because they are much more fundamentally sound. That comes from the US emphasis on playing rather than working on skills. But with the pressure on coaches to win and limited practice time, how does it get fixed?
