Dawn Staley is akin to playing for Michael Jordan or Magic Johnson in the women's game. I think that helps her just a little bit with recruiting.

i would love some insight, though.

I'm certainly not a coach and have no idea how recruiting is done...however I loved this quote from CDS.

Now..that's recruiting / closing / whatever you want to call it.

I think that this was more of a fact that this was in Columbia, which makes me think that she has decided to be a Gamecock for a while now. Otherwise, to avoid the awkwardness she probably would have dropped us from her list a while ago or not have such a public announcement.

I've said this on this and other boards. I think the wait was just to generate buzz and excitement for herself and the program. The Clowney/Lattimore effect for Women's basketball..

Had she picked another school it would've been awhile back and with less flair(if you will) and no one would've cared much. Or known much about it, frankly..

Methinks this class contains the pieces to build a dynasty! I sense something special is upon us. Terrell Owens' words ring true here: "Ahhhh hell, get your popcorn ready!"

Thank you, thank you, thank you A'ja for staying home! You and the rest of this class will bring us a national title. I know you ladies can! The Gamecocks women's basketball team is coming for you big time programs and we are going to slay the giants of the women's game and become our own giant! Make room cause if you don't we'll just push you out of the way and make our own room.

My daughter Logan won two of her school's SCISA volleyball state championships in that gym. Gah, our Gamecocks are on the cusp of something really special!

I would tend to agree- but I guess my point, is that I would have love to have been a fly on the wall to know HOW 'they put A'ja in a position where saying no to [them] would be very, very uncomfortable'

Because we have not had any shortage of players leave our state to go elsewhere...I just wish I knew HOW this 'closing' occurred. That was my main point.

Otherwise, its tough to say CFM isnt a closer- because we dont know one way or another
