Perspective


First welcome to the Hoos Anna. You will love Virginia and we look forward to seeing you in the Orange and Blue.

Now to the brass tacks. Is she a top 100 "headliner" recruit? No

But let's not pretend this is some horrid commitment as she is probably the 3rd best recruit Tina has brought in (of which one has already departed). Whenever the in state school is offering early (as Illinois did), whenever a top 20 team is offering early (like Marquette did), and whenever a coach goes from one school to another bigger fish and offers again (Krieger at Penn State from Marquette) it is a good sign. It is also a good sign that the HS background is a better "fit."

Earlier this year I posted about the best case scenario that the less then impressive recruiting rankings of earlier classes were building a base to show development and said development would be accompanied by bigger "hits" on the recruiting trail. While this may not be a homerun, I am excited about Ms Griffins potential and while I don't think it fits in with the best case rosy scenario that referenced earlier, it is hard to argue this isn't a step up in our recruiting. Bravo to the staff and I hope this is the baseline going forward.

We can malign the state of the program justifiably. I am more than happy to do that. However the comments of "reach" are misinformed if not a miss. Frankly I think she would start this year which is partially due to the low bar the program has set but hell its a start.

For those who want top 100 recruits, as others and myself have said, they are not walking through the door. I do wish we would focus more on PVI (they just had another young woman commit to Duke) to build a pipeline but there was damage there under Boyle that has to be corrected.
