    I believe this is necessary because I suspect Arizona does recruit from that state due to Mike Stoops having relationships with those high schools from his days as the OU defensive coordinator under his brother Bob.

    They might actually land some decent players out of the state eventually. Of course, there are issues when Denver freaking Johnson is your lead recruiter for a big state.

    I don't want to give up on Texas completely, but imo our focus should be almost entirely California, Colorado, and Arizona. Let Ambrose have Texas and Louisiana or something, everyone else hit the Pac 10 area hard.

    Recall those propaganda leaflets of Nixon shaking hands with Mao we dropped over North Vietnam? Hawk needs to assemble photos of Pac-10 coeds at the pool and bombard Metroplex high school campuses with such.

    I would add Hawaii to CA, CO, and AZ. We should be even more attractive to those kids now that we will be playing west coast games. The recruiting under the current staff has become so hodge podge that it hard to tell what areas are really the focus.

    Yeah true, that plus Cabral should really get us in the door with more Hawaiians. If this Pac 12 South division thing is for real, there's just no excuse to not be all over kids in AZ and Socal, though.

    Going into OR, WA and UT a little should be easier now too. Those kids will know they can come to CU and still get to go home and play.

    It probably hurts a bit. But I don't see much impact when we were only getting a couple prospects a year from Texas anyway. If we win, we'll get more and better recruits from Texas and everywhere else. Losing the connection with the Big 12 South hurts, but the result is that we'll likely recruit more like Neuheisel than Barnett as far as where we get most of our talent.

    File this under "duh". Arky and other SEC schools do pretty well in Texas. No reason why we can't... (well, besides hawk).

    Is it just me or is Ambrose our best recruiter already? Why not send him into Texas, couldnt hurt the guy had a long career in the league and folks seem to like him.

    "Son, where do you want to spend the next four years? Texas and Oklahoma will be travelling here. (Hand kid pictures of Manhattan and Ames.) We'll be travelling here. (Hand kids pictures of ASU and UCLA co-eds lounging by the pool.)"

    Yeah, that might work.... :lol:

    There is ***** everywhere, Ambrose might actually be able to pull some folks we have no business getting. I think he should be our top recruiting guy unless we are in Hawaii.

    pretty generous use of the word "keep". KU and MU have all made inroads in TX during their "rise" to significance. Kansas v. Boulder? McCarney's 6-7 win ISU teams had a lot of Texas "B" type players.
