should be huge on the recruiting front in dade/broward.
 
Pete -- thanks for posting the news -- any insight or thoughts on this?
 
This should just confirm that Ice was never pushing players away from Miami. This guy has built and maintained the top high school program in the country. Huge
 
Any word on who Booker T might go after?
 
but he pushed thomas, treon, and kirkland away from the U?!?!?!?!?!!?

really great hire by the staff, this will definitely help with the local coaches and their perception with the U
 
WOW! I think we might have just lockdown DADE with this pickup here. AL Golden is not playing around anymore.
 
better back fill that spot w/ a cane friendly coach. I can't imagine ice allowing a non cane friendly coach filling his spot.
 
UF amnd FSU will still PWN us in recruiting our backyard.
 
So when do we start blaming Ice Jr for being jealous of Ice Sr, who was once jealous of Golden?
