I think the focus is more Cali and going national now. I believe AP's sweet spot is Cali. I think a lot of AZ kids don't want to come here any way per demographics where their parents' allegiances are from or they just want to get away from home or they don't want to play for us. I remember AP saying we'll give local players love but if they don't want to come here, fine. We'll shake their hand and it's game on when we play them. Something to that effect. I love his boldness. I personally don't care where they come from as long as we get those studs and they WANT to play for us. Would I love to have them? Sure. But if the kid is lukewarm and we have to kill ourselves recruiting them, heck with that. We don't need them. I think that is where CTG struggled. I think he worked AZ hard but a lot of them left anyway and we got left holding the proverbial bag. The staff is really bringing in some really good recruits and I think we are building something special here. Just my opinion. Go Devils!
