    why didn't we go after this guy.....

    deon long

    i kept talking about him and how i saw him a couple times when he was a freshman here at UNM. guy is a bad mofo. i know maryland OC mike locksley (the biggest joke in the history of coaching) got him to commit pretty early on. long is from maryland so it would be hard to snag him away, but did we even try? long had 100 catches, 1625 yds and 25 td this season for national champs IWCC!!

    Re: why didn't we go after this guy.....

    started at west virginia but redshirted there. then had to sit out a year an UNM but was somehow a redshirt freshman when he played at UNM. not sure what the story is there. i was at a UNM game where he racked up close to 400 all purpose yds. he is a really good player that we could have used next year

    Re: why didn't we go after this guy.....

    Honestly don't know if a guy that goes from HS to WVU to UNM to IWCC to Maryland is exactly the type of player Rhoads wants.

    Don't think he would be "all-in"

    I really hope we get the monopoly on IWCC. Seems like a lot of talent may roll though there. We need to Snyder the crap out of that place.

    We go after a lot of people. With Deon, you take no for an answer (unlike someone like Campos).

    Re: why didn't we go after this guy.....

    (Too lazy to go find the article) Read an article earlier this fall (interview of Deon Long) in which he stated that he couldn't stand the lack of a social life in New Mexico or here in Iowa. Stated that he was really looking forward to getting back home. He was definitely looking to get back to the Washington DC area.

    I'm not on the coaching staff so I can't answer why we didn't go after him, or any other recruit. We probably didn't want to spend the money for the trouble.
