So unless it's a top 10 recruit no one is happy

Not picking on you but this attitude your post puts forward. We are early in the process. If you or someone has a crystal ball to let us all know how recruits will pan out please share. I am sure you could a bit of money not keeping it to yourself.

Until then the best information we have at this time is those who have seen the recruits frequently. Rating services and coaches are both not infallible (look at Rellah Booth, former #2 overall recruit, now a nice piece at MTSU). Unless there is an in, it is unrealistic to think UVA would be on a top 10 recruit. Therefore we have to be looking early (which I would say 2023 still are early) at talent where rating service information, in a normal year, is thin. Add in the pandemic and rating service information is even weaker then usual on younger classes. Our best data point for evaluation is going to be other offers and to see Michigan and LSU in early is a good sign. Period.

As to UVA kids, yes something is wrong. Have been ringing that bell for years. But the transfer point is BS. Look around the country and see the transfer market up. Our transfer problem here is no worse than most schools around the country. Also the academic elitism BS needs to stop. 90% of the kids in WBB we can recruit no problem. Almost every single Louisville kid would be a UVA kid in a heart beat if our staff could get a sniff.
