    New light on why HB really picked UNC

    Reading Gary Parrish's blog, it looks like Shirley was quite involved in her son's recruiting - a lot more than just tagging along on trips.
    Seems that when Roy said he would stop recruiting any other small forwards other than Harrison and would just wait on him, it turned the tide. And Shirley didn't just take coaches at their word, she checked up on what they did.

    Don't think any other team was in a position to do that...

    I agree - a team like ISU (or virtually any team) could never make that guarantee. And it sounds like Shirley spent a lot of time keeping up on recruiting news and offers...

    Sounds to me like ISU wasn't all that close afterall. Whatever. Not even worried about it anymore.

    I wonder how many small forwards UNC will bring in next year?

    Re: New light on why HB really picked UNC

    What a dumb decision for making a decision. Of course UNC could afford to do that. They had 12 out of thier 13 scholarships accounted for. Even if they don't sign HB they are still fine.

    That promise means literally nothing

    Re: New light on why HB really picked UNC

    If that pushed them over the edge to UNC, then they're really dumb. I don't think they're dumb, so it probably was not a high contributing factor.
