Thanks Paultz.
Funny, didn't know we were recruiting this kid.
I get we may 'fan' on all of them--but gotta love the effort by Staff!
Let's go Johnnies.

It's one well-coordinated effort by the Staff.
Can't recall having such 'high hopes' in a long time.
Thanks again.

Staff has worked hard, but it will a battle to land guys like Iggy, Kofi, Lewis, Precious and Whitney. We could be in final 5 imo for a few guys & get in home visits. However competition is fierce for all these players and frankly we are not exactly a “destination program” yet. I would not be shocked if we land a prime kid, but it is also possible we fan on all those kids.

To their credit staff has not put all eggs in one basket, including lower level guys like Ledlum for example. Rather than getting too excited about our prospects with anyone, let’s see what in home visits we garner & go from there. Just being a realist!


"Just being a realist!" Yes you are. Very even keeled and accurate assessment.


Staff has definitely turned it around a bit in the appearances department with others adding to Matt's ongoing efforts on the road. Appreciate the realist view and the backup options being developed. Would only add that CM's approach to game planning really requires skilled players at all positions, a la the new look NBA or the old look Nelson teams, so to achieve the program ceiling they will need to start hitting on highly ranked prospects sooner or later or continue to rely on highly ranked transfers and dark horse recruits, which can be successful if not as sexy but with higher risk.

So SJU repping all 3 sites. GSJ at Peach, Chris and I'm guessing Matt in Atlanta and Luca in NYC?

ATTENTION:

Major updates were made to the servers / software hosting redmen.com. There was also one significant change to the website this week to address keeping up with current standards and practices.

It has now become standard practice for all websites to be served as https (as opposed to the original http).


A couple of years ago I enabled https on the site as optional but as of today, the site is forcing https. Any link coming into the site should be automatically converted on the fly and you should not have to do anything on your end.

However if you do notice recent problems, please contact me directly via email: webmaster@redmen.com or via private message on the site.


Also if you have forgotten your username and/or password here are two links to address that (the links only work if you are not currently logged in):
