It really goes to show what having some young/hungry staffers can do. He's also uniquely positioned to sell BC, which helps too. Even with a wholesale house cleaning hopefully coming after this season, there will inevitably be a couple staffers that stay on with the new staff. Putting aside what Don Gene demands of the next coach, Al seems like he's doing a good job positioning himself to be one of them.
Where is Al recruiting? I know siravo has a lot of CT and Virginia and Desai has FL of lockdown
Seems like he's mid-atlantic, especially MD and VA
That's pretty good. Maryland isn't exactly firing on all cylinders at the moment. Do you know of any recruits Washington is recruiting specifically?
So much for Maryland not "firing on all cylanders". They just picked up commits from 2 4-star local guys from DC. Both had upwards of 20 high profile offers. You have to remember that te brought in Mike Locksley as their DC and he is a major recruiting guru in the mid-atlantic. He was actually getting guys from MD and DC to commit to the horrendous New Mexico program while he was HC. His contract actually offers bonuses if MD is in the top 25 on Rivals or Scout. This will likely lead to other local guys from MD and DC gravitating to Maryland.
I definitely wasn't talking about recruiting, on field-wise though, they are a mess. The Danny O'Brien situation didn't get things off to a good start for next year either.
