I think Virginia's class of 2021 should be where the program is in terms of recruiting long-term. Virginia is an academically powerful public university in a conference with a bona fide elite national power. Based on 247:
33rd ranked nationally
2 4-star recruits, both in-state prospects
Most of my elementary school friends went to Whitney Young, and Dennis Gates was a really fun player to watch at that time. Quentin Richardson and Cordell Henry got more attention, but Cal got a great glue guy in Gates. He was always cerebral. I am rooting for him to be a big time coach.
