I agree with you, but the whiplash among the posters on this board is funny

Going back five years, I've seen the evolution of arguments that recruits are now more nationally focused due to camps, social media, and so forth, and we shouldn't get so worked up about not getting kids from Virginia. Now the focus seems to be on reclaiming Virginia, which is a good thing.

I've never believed that collegiate athletes were that much different that students at large. Most students don't venture terribly far away from where they grew up for a variety of reasons, including proximity to family, familiarity with a new setting, attending with high school friends, and so forth. There are always exceptions, but our recruiting shouldn't overthink this. Work Virginia hard and supplement elsewhere.
