essentially local kid.  in early.  already been on campus.   hasn't said "no".   might want some program we have in spades.   might like some coach personally.   might identify with the belk tower.   who knows?
GO AFTER HIM!!!!
i simply don't understand "fans" who are ready to give up because we're not "Big Time"!     so let's believe in ourselves, and GET Big Time.   

It's a risky gamble...that's why.

If we spend all of our time and resources recruiting this kid that history tells us 99.9% of the time will choose the P5 school, we lose out on the tier 2 or tier 3 kid we COULD have had, had we diverted the attention to them early enough. 

Isn't this what our previous coach did? 
I say always go after a top kid, but the moment that kid indicates he isn't seriously interested, move on.


If you never recruit them you never land them, but at the same time you have to be serious with your chances of getting the kid and plan accordingly.
Exactly, which is why I mentioned we should always express interest, but know when we have no chance and move on.


Agree 100%


We have a list of kids that we didn't recruit that we may have been able to land, but then we have a list of players that we did recruit and invested a ton of time in who walked away - Jason Parker anyone?

Just because we may not land him now doesn't mean we won't be an option for him down the road.  Never hurts to introduce the program to anyone even if they don't come here.

If he wasn't local, I might be more inclined to side with the "show interest but do so cautiously" folks.

The fact that he is local changes everything for me, though. Go after him and go after him hard.

The best thing that we can do for any and all sports is lay claim to our city. Create the perception and expectation that local kids go to play for the Green and White.

If UNC Chapel Hill gets the death penalty then some of those in state stars will be up for grabs.  I don't wish bad on any school unless they deserve it and from what I read they do deserve to be shut down.

I agree death penalty won't happen, but some type of multi year NCAA competition ban certainly could.

If that were to ever happen, doesn't mean that helps our chances in landing elite talent, those kids would continue going to top 15 programs.

Good point.

We are not just recruiting the player, we are also recruiting the coach. We want to handle the Batts kid well because we want his help with the next kid.
Hey 49er undergrads, you are bigger than UNC-CH.  Start acting like it!

caught him tonight against cox mill.  High motor, good basketball IQ, good court vision, great defender. His assignment tonight was Wendell Moore, who is possibly the #1 freshman in the country and he held him in check.  Bobby lutz and mark fox were there as well.  We could land this kid.  Would be a great local piece for price.

Charlotte had no coaches there that I saw.  But the gym was slam packed.  With that said most of the college coaches sat together.
