So, serious question, now that the Gaels are the reigning 4x MAAC Tourney Champs is there any chance a local stud decides to stay home and play for the Gaels? I love how we reload recruiting wise but given Rickey's AMAZING 4 year run is there another 4 year leader out there who has seen and taken note of this and wants to try and replicate that feat?
The irony regarding local talent is their attraction to go elsewhere while away talent is attracted by the New York City lights. No one wants to date the girl next door conundrum. I feel the sales job needs to be the high school and AAU coaches. If they feel their kid could benefit playing at Iona the recruiting might be easier. Who knows, but success on the court helps.
Bruce Guy no longer has Iona commit on his Twitter Account.
Oh boy. I checked a few days ago and he still had Iona commit on his page. Wouldn't shock me if it's true, but hope it's not. I know the kid was prepared to be part of the '19 class but Cluess asked him to reclass to the '20 class. This has the makings of a situation that the true story will never be known.
They mostly go on info told to them through Twitter. I asked the writer that wrote a couple of articles on his commitment to Iona. Let's see if he responds.
edit: The writer responded. Said "when he last spoke to him he a month ago he was still committed, but he has been back and forth on what he wants to do". Maybe he decided not in favor of coming to Iona as part of the '20 class. Time will tell
