    As we all know, the Buff bread is buttered in California, Colorado and Texas. The coaching staff is making its primary commitments to building relationships and pipelines within these states.

    There's also a 2nd tier for recruiting led by Arizona, Hawaii, Louisiana and Washington where we have also made a commitment to building relationships.

    Something that has developed, though, which is paying big dividends is the program focusing on two east coast schools that consistently put out D1 talent: HD Woodson in Washington DC and Don Bosco Prep in New Jersey.

    As I've said before, I'm a big fan of this focused recruiting strategy. Focus on certain states, especially within the Pac-12 footprint, and then choose some power programs in areas where we can have some success due to relationships and large CU alumni bases. In addition to Woodson and Bosco, I'd like to see us make an effort to develop relationships with the Simeon program in Chicago and the Bishop Gorman program in Las Vegas as other examples.

    Recruiting is so simple:

    1. find places that develop talent that wants to come to CU.
    2. Develop relationships with those places.
    3. Profit!!

    I think you could justify making Arizona a priority on the same level of CO, CA, and TX.

    I was disappointed we didn't make more of an effort at Bishop Gorman this cycle.

    That, and we need to get the Cherry Creek pipleine flowing again.:nod:

    I would think that Brookhart should be able to recruit Ohio since he was the head coach at Akron.

    Yeah. I'd like to see Brown get more of an assist in AZ. He gets some, but I'd like to have 2 primaries there.
