IT's great that you were party to insider info back in the day. However, perhaps your choice of wording should be more precise. The use of "host" implies problems at every turn, that perhaps the program was teetering towards collapse, etc. That was not the case.

D-Rock was the lead recruiter for Zack Harvey who is our #1 target for 2019. His game-planning and intensity were legendary. This reminds me of when Greg Grensing left Dana to join Lon Kruger at UNLV. I think the entire trajectory of Dana's tenure here changed after GG left. Grensing recruited Rodney Buford, Ben Walker and Ryan Sears. He was our Midwest recruiter and D-Rock stepped into that position. When GG left he was replaced by Fish who brought in P-Allen and a host of questionable characters. The whole program changed. Mac needs to be very careful to get this hire right.



I'm sure Mac's Iowa St. mistakes will not be duplicated here. He has already admitted to that. He will get a good one. He needs it.

GG was a big part of Nate Funk's recruitment effort, too.
