He's definitely a take if we miss our priority targets considering he is a highly rated local kid

Have heard good things about our chances with Greg Brown

Think we will end with:
Dante
Cryer
Cook
Peavy

re: LSU Basketball 2022 (and Beyond) Recruiting Thread
LSU was/is in on several big time Texas kids, but it's my understanding Tony Benford was the lead recruiter there (just like Armstrong is most responsible for Watford and Heir is the Florida connection). With Benford no longer on staff does that change the calculus?

Presumably he was brought on to help recruit Texas. That didn't bear any fruit in years 1, 2 and 3, but it looked he was starting to with the 4th recruiting class

Does LSU bring on another assistant with TX ties? Or, is Brian Merrit the Texas tie?

I'm not really sure on what they are doing to replace Benford, but I believe LSU is still the team to beat for Cryer and Peavy. Also have a good chance at Greg Brown.

Merritt is definitely a TX tie with all of his connections to AAU and John Lucas over there. Now whether that gets used in his current capacity or in the form of a promotion to fill Benford's spot, remains to be seen.

What Bjorn said. That is apparently Tasmin's responsibility.

Maybe more depends on if Wade fills out the roster this year and who does or doesn't leave early after next season. I haven't thought of Watford as a one-and-done but he might be. You think he's a one-and-done?
