Dawn and staff is the reason we are even in the game for these recruits. If Dawn wants to consistently pull in these top recruits, she probably needs to move on to a university with a more prestigious athletic program. She would likely be cleaning up if she had taken the job at Ohio St. with the Ohio State name, with a tremendous in state talent base, and a centralized location up there in the midwest and southeast.

So true. Afraid things are on a southern trajectory with WBB. Recruiting the past couple of years has not been pretty. No great improvement in sight either. Dang.

Yeah, I'm sure Geno said the same thing before UConn was rolling. Your statement is complete and utter hogwash.

But it is embarrassing to lose players to Tennessee. Pat Summit is dead. She is not walking through that door. Holly has done nothing since taking over.

Not to turn this into a women's version of the ridiculous debate over Frank Martin's inability (or not) to recruit local players, but much of our success over the last 5-6 years has been built around Dawn getting exceptional players from SC, NC, and Georgia that formed the core of those teams: A'ja (SC), Alaina (SC), Tiffany (Charlotte), Allisha (GA / UNC), Kaela (GA / Georgia Tech), Aleighsa (SC), and even Asia Dozier (SC) and Elem Ibiam (GA), who were good role players. The Ty Harris's, BCM's and Destanni Henderson's have been less common.

The girls basketball talent pool around here seems to have been down the last couple years, and currently, there are only 2 players from SC in the HoopGurlz 100 for 2019 (one of whom has already committed to Clemson) and 1 for 2020 (who has already committed to UNC). The prospects are similar for GA and NC. Dawn is recruiting on a broader stage so we're going to miss more, but even I admit to being a little frustrated that we haven't turned a Championship and the National Team coach into a little more firepower. Here's to hoping things pick up for 2019.

This is all going our way. Holly War "can't coach a" lick will not be able to do anything with the talented players, will run them off, and Dawn will bring them in as experienced transfers and grad students and will make the most of their talents.

We just don't have to give them PT before they are ready to compete at a high level, provide room and board, or tie up a scholarship while they are developing.

As Geo noted, she is not in our "sphere of influence" and was always a long shot. By recruiting her hard and building a relationship, we will be at the top of her list of "where I really want to transfer when I get sick of Holly's crap and not ever winning anything".

Most may hit the road but will only play a year or two at their next school after sitting out a year... Hopefully, Dawn and Frank will hire coaches that could coach AND close the deal on recruiting. Watching videos and their comments, Frank and Dawn are not the type of coaches that recruits fall in love with during the recruiting process. They either don't know how to or refuse to develop meaningful relationships with recruits.

I dont think the girls will run off especially if they stay after year one they know the situation when they go there and still go...if that was the case baylor and texas would of been in trouble karen aston plays like 11 players regularly which is what i think her true problem is..

I disagree on Dawn and to a lesser extent on Frank.

Dawn is very personable, is good with social media, relates well to recruits, has a terrific name/reputation and is the primary reason that we are in the running for the elite players.

Having said that...we are relatively new to the scene in Women's basketball and are going after players that are not close to Columbia. We will still get the players that we need to win, but they may be recycled.

And if we continue to do well on the national scene, and if the local area has an uptick in talent (similar to the Mitchell/Coates/Dozier years), we will start getting some of the top HS recruits again.

According to coach Law, Dawn's "shy" and it takes her longer to connect with recruits. In this fast paced world, and all the other coaches and teams a recruit deals with on a daily basis, this is obviously not working. Coach McCray was the coach recruits were drawn to. She had that motherly personality that recruits and parents fell in love with.



Recruits will travel across country to play for a coach they feel a connection with. MAYBE we will get the players we need to win, but relying on transfers is like playing Russian Roulette.



Hopefully, we could win with the pieces we have right now and draw in the top shelf players we need to get back to where we were.

Thought Coach Law was a replacement for Coach McCray. Wasn't Coach Law the closer at UT?

Tennessee did add Hall of Famer, Bridgette Gordon, as an assistant coach. She’s supposed to be a great recruiter, is an alum and former player who won 2 nattys there, so she probably has some cred with recruits. Tenn didn’t get weaker on the recruiting front when Law left........just saying
