Please. Keatts went after a Hargrave kid because he knows what the program produces. Talley didn't come play for Keatts purely because he was a former Hargrave coach. It was an instance of a coach using his connections, not a player having a direct link to the coach.

And I'm sure McGrath and Esleeck have recruiting locations in mind as well. Keatts didn't invent recruiting.

I think you are undervaluing big time the relationship that Jordan had with him. He was comfortable with him regardless of what had happened.

RE: CAA Conference Season
Not sure how we got to this topic, but Keatts had connections that not many do. It's one thing to have connections with a Hargrave. It's completely different to have been a very successful coach at Hargrave over a long period of time. That's a connection that can't be replicated. Additionally, Keatts while at Hargrave recruited HS kids to come to Hargrave, so he has those HS connections as well. And those players were the best of the best.

Right now, we have no idea how McGrath and his assistants will recruit in the future, so it's all speculation. IMO, he needs to recruit at a high level based on the style of play he wants. We will require some big men who will play at a high level since he only plays three guards. And he is going to have to produce them for the next season as Bryan leaves and Cacok is a senior. Replacing Cacok will be his biggest recruiting challenge.

Recurring topic them around here for sure, but post #31 (not naming names to protect the sensitive) seems to be the culprit. lol

Talley played at Fishburne Military Academy not Hargrave. I believe Keatts knew the coach at Fishburne and he recommended him to Keatts. Talley had an offer from Towson and that was
about it if I recall correctly.

Correct Sir, my apologies I glanced at an article and it was talking about Keatts at Hargraves and he at Fishburn had crossed paths. Clearly I didn’t read the whole thing earlier
