If targeting VA recruits is not the end all, then when would it be okay

for the coaching staff to focus less on VA recruits and focus more on out-of-state recruits. I guess I am having difficulty reconciling your point of view. On one hand you say it is (very?) important that VT target the Top 15 VA recruits and win majority of the recruiting battle. On the other hand targeting VA recruits is not the end all. For the record, I don't have any issue with your opinion. In fact, I may even agree with it at some level. I am just trying to get a better understanding of it for the sake of the discussion.

At least it seems to me that you may be believe VT should target the Top 15 VA recruits most/every year and (being a key word here) win majority of those recruiting battle. Hence why I brought up the potential relevance of where the VA recruits rank compare to recruits from the other states. It is a fascinating discussion and I don't think there is a "right" or "wrong" answer here because it boils down to personal preferences. So I am always curious to know (and better understand) a person's logic when he/she prefers that VT focus more on a 3-star VA DE (national ranking #1195) over a 3-star TN DE (national ranking #796) because the VA recruit happens to be a Top 15 VA recruit.
