This is also correct.

Also in 2014, GT target SG Tadric Jackson is Chris Bolden's cousin so GT is heavily involved there as well and in good shape.

Interesting. He's supposed to be one of the better QBs coming out of the South for the '14 class as well. I wonder if he's planning on trying to play both in college or if he favors one over the other. Rivals has him as the #13 overall player in the country for basketball right now.

He said he will definitely play basketball at the next level.

Here's a little write-up on Reed.

And the type of guy we need to land if we're to go to the head of the class in the ACC, and actually make a run in the tournament.

We have all the things in place to bring in elite recruits, although our academic setting is more challenging than most. We've been able to land guys that are great 5-star players in the past, and Gregory look like he's laying the groundwork for excellent recruiting here. If he can win with his style of play as he builds the program, the momentum will be great.

So far, I like what we're seeing with regards to recruiting. One of the biggest disappointments of our national title run was our inability to capitalize on it from a recruiting perspective. The 2004 class was four 4-star guys, but we were in the thick of it with so many 5-star guys that just didn't come here. We just couldn't close the elite guys, even after the run.

This is what Cremins was able to do early on in his tenure to keep his recuiting momentum going. Landing Price, Salley, and Dalrymple early was pure salesmanship. Ferrell, Hammonds, Scott, etc. saw that they could also win with hs system.

No love for Scott Petway.
