It comes down to TEAM and CHEMISTRY.   I think that's ultimately the point.  This kid is really good, but is he THAT GOOD?  That's what UCLA has been pushing off as the reason they don't want to deal with the extra baggage. When you have a coach, parent, etc demanding playing time, it seaps into the team, the team concept goes away, etc.  It takes a strong leader to be able to squelch that quickly or he can lose the team.

DePaul had some teams with players like that and they never could really put a cap on the egos.   So that is part of the concern that other programs are having.  The kid wants to be showcased so he can be one and done.  You can bet when he's not getting enough shots or starting, then the chirping starts.

I agree with your point about having the type of player you mentioned being disruptive to the team.  However, I am not sure Snaer is that type of player.  If you recall some of his comments after his visit to Marquette.  He seemed to like the hard work and the concepts that Buzz seem to preach, which is very team oriented one-day-at-a-time approach.  Wouldn't that be a turn off to such a player?  Why are we still in his top 3? 

Just playing devils advocate.

We're in his top 3 because he would start here and play a lot as a freshman.

As for timing of announcement on Friday...

Snaer will be featured on ESPNU’s “College Basketball Signing Day Special” to be broadcast from 3 to 5 p.m. Central time Friday.

Apparently the "handlers" that surround Snaer are not stopping UCLA from making a late push to get him signed.

Michael Snaer pushes decision back to Friday...
By Van Coleman van@hoopmasters.com

The nation's No.17 rated senior 6-4 Michael Snaer has moved his decision back to Friday...

We caught up with Indland Basketball's head man Elvert "Kool Aid" Perry this afternoon and he told us that his 6-4 wing scorer Michael Snaer had pushed his decision back to Friday at 5pm on ESPN.

"Michael will announce his college choice Friday afternoon at 5PM," Coach Perry told Hoopmasters. "He still has all five schools on his list. He will decide between Florida State, UCLA, Marquette, Kansas, and Missouri."

"He says there are a lot of rumors out there, but until Michael tells me where he's going I think all the schools have a shot."

We have heard in the past few days that Florida State may have a slight edge, but that UCLA and Kansas are pushing really hard. But, it seems that only Michael Snaer will know who is in the driver's seat, and he's not announcing until Friday.

When a grown man has the nickname "Kool Aid" and apparently insists that his name is published with it, you know he has issues.

That's almost like a state insisting upon flying a confederate flag at their capital building ;D  In all seriousness, that has to hurt recruiting!

It is very difficult to put together a team of players with competing agendas. This makes for a difficult task to manage a roster if too many players think they should be playing out of some sense of entitlement. Some players can pick up those ideas during the recruiting process.

I feel more comfortable with recruits who want to be in the program rather than ones that have handlers shopping them around for the best offer.
