I'm more concerned with keeping our current recruits, especially Bates. Anything else is a bonus but I can see this as a big plus for the next class as I would think he has some good ties with Texas schools.
I would imagine that this would only have a positve impact on recruiting but do you see any big time recruits from Texas following Gene here.
I don't think he'd have much of an impact on offensive recruits from Texas right off the bat, but I'm really hoping some of the 4* or 5* defensive recruits decide to follow him here. God knows this defense NEEDS it.
If your more concerned about keeping our current recruits than it is a good thing you are not doing the recruiting. We only have 5 guys right now and we need about 20 more. Yeah focus on 5 guys rather than the rest. Bates is good but he is not the biggest of our needs
I would think Bates would like this news but some of the others will have to ponder how it impacts them. I agree though that this is probably a much better move recruiting wise than Kelly would have been, both for current recruits and obviously for future ones.
A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.
