1) How can Coach Fuente recruit top players in Carolina over Fedora and Dabo?  Adonis Alexander, Mook Reynolds, Divine Diablo and now Hendon Hooker are great foundations to build upon! What’s next? – ChazB

Chris Coleman: By being actively involved, working closely with his recruiting staff (the recruiting staff played a big role in Hooker’s recruitment, FWIW), and in general being a better salesman than Dabo Swinney and Larry Fedora.  Recruiting is pretty much the same, no matter where you are recruiting.  First it’s all about clicking with the prospect, and after that it’s all about salesmanship.

Charlotte: 174 miles
Winston-Salem: 126 miles
Greensboro: 153 miles

Richmond: 217 miles
Alexandria: 272 miles
Virginia Beach: 324 miles
Fredericksburg: 213 miles
