RE: Champlin: UAB set for big recruiting weekend under new head coach Bill Clark
For a coach who got 100 phone calls the first time his name was mentioned, I'll assume every position is filled at this point. I don't see why we can't a better idea of how many slots we have open. Drew should know by now. He should know who is still on the team by now. Who else transfered?

Most of our recruits have no other choice if they want to play D1-A football.

Several of the prospects have a few CUSA/Sun Belt/MAC type offers, but I know what you mean. Drew had a hard time getting the scholarship information, because nobody from the previous staff would give him any (McGee blocked him on twitter....even made his sidekicks do the same). Clark will be a lot more open with him, as he was at Jacksonville.

He had a hard time trusting people, and he didn't trust Drew too much either......which made no sense at all. At least Coach Clark is media friendly, and welcomes the exposure.

I have no specific information to prove my theory, but I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if McGee was untrusting towards Drew because of his history following Troy. We all know that McGee was not shy about mentioning Troy with respect to recruiting battles of which he considered some of their tactics less than admirable. Maybe McGee was overly suspicious or paranoid that Drew's Troy ties, particularly when it came to anything on the recruiting front.
