DrewFranklinKSR is still rolling out results from its poll of 100 coaches and today's topic is dirty recruiting. College basketball's fifth favorite writing quartet asked coaches, "Which player is perceived to have the dirtiest recruitment in the last 10 years?" Drumroll, please... Shabazz Muhammad: 15 percent Anthony Davis: 13 percent John Wall: 7 percent Kyle Anderson: 7 percent O.J. Mayo: 7 percent Derrick Rose: 6 percent Renardo Sidney: 6 percent Terrence Jones: 3 percent Tobias Harris: 3 percent Chris Obekpa: 3 percent Kentucky had three of the top 10 responses, including two of the top three, with John Calipari adding another in Derrick Rose. Shabazz Muhammad, who is currently under investigation, finds himself at the top of the list with 15-percent of the vote. One coach who voted for Davis said, "I've never seen a recruitment get shut down as quickly as that one got shut down. I don't know how they did it. But it was a strong play." Another coach said,  "Baylor hired John Wall's AAU coach and that still wasn't enough to get that deal done. That recruitment was on another level. And remember, Roy Williams basically stopped recruiting him. Best player in the country is from North Carolina, and North Carolina didn't really want anything to do with it. What does that tell you?" Haters gonna hate. They wish they had 8.
