Truth be known, Tracy McGrady was the best player in NC that year, but the way they voted things, he wasn't eligible - prep school, or whatever, but Jenis was a very, very good point guard. He also had some personal issues that impacted his college career, illness and death of parent(s), if I am not mistaken, during his college days.
Harrell was a really good player, but had some problems with law enforcement during his college days, and Rolan Roberts was simply the pre-incarnation of Jeff Allen - very good, just never got the head screwed on straight.
The point being, those that say Bill Foster quit recruiting . . . . they don't don't know at all what they are talking about, not at all.
Under Greenberg we played an average of 1.9 (~2) games more than under Moir. Certainly no where close to 5.
Other great players from that period included Myron Guillory, Shawne Brown, David Whaley, Jermaine Kimbrough, Jesus Rodriguez, Jermaine Kilgore, Clinton McPherson, Alvaro Tor....sheesh.
After that one class, Foster just signed a bunch of crappy players and raided the Naval Academy. Eddie Lucas, David Whaley and some other walk-on guard all transferred from Navy to VT.
Foster was a very good coach, but he quit on recruiting his last few years. He just flat out didn't do any.
Hussey actually got some players. We'll give him partial credit for Grindstaff and Roberts, but also throw in Dennis Mims, Tony Dobbins and Brian Chase. That's pretty good for only being the coach for 2 seasons.
