When I spoke with i.w. a couple weekends ago I asked him they same question pretty much.. he said the 1st thing they sold him on was Family, you are family for life.I don't disagree with your points. I want to just ask, what are they trying to sell recruits? Currently a program that has really sucked in recent history. The fact we are in the conversation with so many top recruits, even though we have been terrible, shows me they are pretty good at recruiting. Be middle of the pack at least, and then we can see what type of recruiters we have on the field. As I have said many times, I am 100% Jimmys and Joes over Xs and Os
The 2nd thing they stressed was immediate playing time,
3rd was the culture change they are developing.
4th he said they felt like he could be the start of something special.
He threw a few other things out, like they sold him on being close to home so his family could watch him play in person..
But point is you cant continue selling on just those points...
