I know in the past Jim has opinioned his disapproval of Rose’s 50 mile recruiting radius. What needs to be pointed out is that Lone Peak was a farm house for D1 Utah prospects and a direct conduit for BYU. Families moved there because of their kids talents. Corner Canyon has displaced Bingham to some extent for D1 talent in football. Wasatch Academy is 100% a D1 farm team. We have 3 kids here or coming and I hope the pipeline gets even stronger over time. Da La Silva, who dominates at Cal was once a BYU commit. We would not of lost a game so far this year with that guy on our team. So not an argument for me. Would I like to see more international talent? Yeah. we are a world wide church so yeah and I think Pope is expanding that as we speak.
The fact we are arguing about the state of our BBall and Football teams today after the dark 5 or so back years is comical to me. Yes, I may wine about Tuiaki but my goodness, BYU Football has been the most talked about team in America this year, even more so then Bama, the anointed NCs. And after that run last year with the basketball team, ESPN had BYU playing in the title game in their fantasy march madness matchups and I sure would not of bet against them. BYU is freckin awesome right now so enjoy every minute of it.
