I would look at it as good fortune, but then I’ve been accused of having a sunny personality so...
Hey, we got Bryon Allen in a similar way. West Virginia recruit who got dropped because of a medical redshirt to a senior and we swoop in and take him. Who cares how they get here, right?
almost entirely different situation but yea
Duquesne who is actually ranked after us in recruitment prowess just signed a kid with 3 P5 offers for their first 2021 recruit. They also have 15 scholarship athletes for two years in a row so somehow it is not against the rules everyone else seems to fall under
Well Dayton finished their class with a 3 star PF today. They not only recruited over Castro once but twice. And he still put them in his top 3 bahaha
definitely a nice class grant put together.
have to think even though he’s an alum, that he’s looking for a big run and a jump back to a BCS program.
If I’m him, I’m recognizing what I have at Dayton, I’m staying around for a decade, and hanging banners. Dayton is a great basketball job.
Turning into Gonzaga of the Midwest. I too would stay there forever especially if he keeps out recruiting P5 schools as it is
Why though? He already found out the grass isn’t greener and Dayton is one of the top 3 non-P6 jobs nationally. They have the resources to win titles annually and can afford to keep him at a very nice standard of living in Ohio. Unless he wants an NBA job at some point I don’t think he’s going anywhere.
Yeah I don't disagree that what he is doing at Dayton and with his resources he can have him stick around for as long as he wants, but I don't know what his end goal is. He failed at the BCS level so I don't know if he wants another crack at it or if having a great job like Dayton is good enough for him.
Dayton is a better job than Alabama.
Who's in charge of the "Welcome to Mason....." posts for newly signed recruits?
Gray already has one and I think both do.... program apathy at an all time high and nobody really cares too much. maybe if we start winning people will
Both are on page 2.
In a lot of ways.
In dollars though, it's $2.5 mill. vs. $1.2 mill. https://sports.usatoday.com/ncaa/salaries/mens-basketball/coach/
Yes, but you’ve got to weight relative job security and ability to compete (in your conference as well as at the highest level) against potential salary, and Grant can have the Dayton job forever if he keeps pulling in the recruits like he has.
Money talks, and millions are hard to pass up. He might stay forever and be a Dayton legend, this might be his last season there. Tough to say what happens when some of these schools come knocking with huge salaries.
so...anyone hear anything about 2021 recruits? Been pretty hush hush, haha.
I'm to lazy to google and read but didn't the NCAA grant another year of eligibility? With that I'm wondering if they're holding onto them just in case any of our Seniors want to return. Also might be holding onto them to see if there are any solid decommits from other schools that no longer have scholarships remaining due to the extra year of eligibility rule.
