When a five-star recruit commits to high-major programs, fans of programs like Duke, Kentucky or North Carolina probably smile, shrug their shoulders and wait for three more five-star recruits to commit before getting excited. But when a five-star recruit commits to one of the best mid-major programs in the nation? Now that’s cause for celebration.

With five now-eligible transfers and two freshmen on next season’s roster, the Wolf Pack look incredibly loaded — and this isn’t factoring in potential returners Caleb Martin, Cody Martin and Jordan Caroline, who were all-MWC first team selections last season. Regardless of who decides to turn pro next season, the Wolf Pack are bound to be must-see television.

In fact, we at Mid-Major Madness were so inspired by everyone’s enthusiasm that we recorded our own reaction videos:
