Colorado State Basketball: Larry Eustachy Wants To Build Program Through HS Recruits

New Colorado St. Rams basketball coach Larry Eustachy is known for building his Southern Miss Golden Eagles program through junior college transfers, but that's not the way he wants to create a successful program up in Fort Collins, reports the Coloradoan. Eustachy wants to continue in Miles' footsteps and make the Rams a team constructed with athletes who want to play for four years.

However, that won't stop Eustachy from bringing in junior college players. He will need to bring in a few to fill in holes on the roster, but they won't be the core of his teams.

Eustachy will have a senior-heavy team for the 2012-13 season with Jesse Carr, Wes Eikmeier, Dorian Green, Pierce Hornung and Greg Smith all seniors or fifth-year players. The new coach will have one season to work with the core of the team that went to the 2012 NCAA Tournament.
