I understand that there is talent in California, but getting the best recruits, regardless of where they come from, should be the main priority. Taking the lessons learned from this recruiting cycle, maybe we go after more local talent, but still go after out of state recruits. When the scholarship restrictions are over, I expect that they take more chances and sign more people for multiple positions from all over the country.
I disagree. Lock up local talent first. Then go after OOS recruits...especially now that UCLA and ND are making inroads on our territory.
Unlike local kids, OOS recruits will never know nor will they ever understand the tradition, pride, and lineage/pedigree that bleeds from the walls of our campus therefore we need to 'proceed with caution' and bring our focus 'home'.
All the Florida Universities understand this concept well!
