They had me until they started talking about WR's blocking. You lost me there.
So, If Pep is our guy, then what are the chances that VT can break into the fertile recruiting ground that is CA? I know its about as far away as you can get, but Pep has to have established at least a few connections with highscools in CA

About as close to zero as you can get. Unless some five-stsr kid picks up the phone, calls Blacksburg, and tells us he's REALLY interested in VT, then we're not going to invest scarce time snd resources pursuing kids on the other side of the country. We will get a much better return on investment by sticking to the east coast and there are plenty of good players here.
Yeah Rhett Ellison says hi.
There are some kids in Cali that are interested EVERY year but we don't have the Alabama type of recruiting budget to pursue them.
Does Hamilton recruit VA for Stanford? They have been pulling a lot of top talent out of the central/northern VA area over the past few year.
Apparently Hamilton is a done deal according to his closest advisors....Manny, Moe and Jack
He signed Alex Carter out of Briar Woods, as well as a 5* DE from CA. He also recruited Korren Kirven. My guess is he's also the lead recruiter for Stanford commit Ryan Burns, #3 Prostyle QB, hmmm, as well as Stanford decommit Doug Randolph.

I doubt he would focus much time on recruiting CA. seems like longshot for many players from there given resources, etc (especially long term). Hamilton is from Charlotte and played in DC. Seems to me that he could be a shot in the arm in for rctg in NC, DC/MD and our own home state - where our focus will be anyway.
the resources and budget are only scarce because beamer has not asked for more - weaver has repeatedly said that frank can have as big of a budget as he wants for recruiting
Also, if Pep is our guy, should we be expecting a relatively large number of "Offer SCOOPS!!!" from CZY after he's hired? I'm looking forward to all of the offseason reading, and I need all the offseason reading so as not to be bored, I hate being bored
