I'm actually kinda surprised that we haven't heard an announcement yet.

He was a grad assistant at Creighton last season.  East coast native.  Looks like he has prep school connections as well, at Montverde

I was thinking the same on the lack of recruiting history. But I suppose a lot of that is just generic people-skills anyway, if you’re good at it.

The last 2 ac hired seems to focus on having that top prep school connection. Now that the top basketball prep schools created a division competing throughout the season, then culminating with the national high school championships, Hopefully it pays off for us. I haven’t seen Drake recruit prep schools besides Robbins.

Additionally, love the NYC area maybe DMV connections. We lost some Midwest recruits to Loyola previously and if we have playing time, go get the kid willing to relocate to Des Moines.

Well, that only took two weeks from when we all knew about it.  Maybe soon, they'll announce which of the seniors are coming back for their extra season, and who they signed this spring.

I think a lot of us have assumed that for a while now.  I was hinting that it might be nice if there was some kind of official announcement.

Did we get an official announcement last year that the super seniors were coming back? I don’t recall one.
