Not a pipe dream


I distinctly recall you saying you got this information from Chris Obekpa.

Rice would give us a better chance to get some of those rio kids too. Win win for both sides. Lewis, Igiehon and Gaffney would be tremendous.

Let’s hope the chatter stops and he puts his signature on a contract with SJU , which I will be glad to draw up pro bono for SJU , even though there is a great executive employment lawyer who reads this forum. :)

Let's get this out there in case it happens. He brings one kid and it's worth it. If he doesn't bring 2 or 3 I don't want to hear people complaining.

I think he’s worth it without bringing any kids.

If his only value was bringing in one or more of his present team members then it's another poor hire. Hopefully if he's hire he can help raise the overall recruiting profile long term as well as share his past head coaching experience with a staff that has none beside their on the job training.

Be patient, always an inclusive process in hires like this.


I understand, Paultz, but I can wish, can't I?

I have no clue if Rice joins the team, if he'll be able to sway 1 - 2 of our Rio Team targets or none.
But I do expect him to improve the x/o skills on the staff, as well as add energy, depth, recruiting insights, and provide a strong connection to Area HS and AAU programs.
Sounds like a win-win to me and I remain in hope mode.

Yes, if he brings Scottie 5* along with his experience it will be well worth it
