RJ said we are in a good place with him right now. Same with Heide and Aligbe. This staff is doing their due diligence on these guys.
I think this staff works really hard to get local kids. Not all local kids are recruited as heavily. Pitino made an interesting comment pre-game at the Gopher insider deal before the Penn State game. "We won't get all local kids, we don't WANT all the local kids" which I think people miss.
Obviously he wanted Tyus and Tre, Hurt, etc. but some kids don't fit here, some kids simply don't want to stay here. Pitino is going to land some more kids, hopefully Heide, Walton, Holloman and Aligbe.
