Patriot's 2009 recruiting class not complete?

Apparently coach Larranaga might not be finished with his next recruiting class. The kid's name is Sherrod Wright, a 6'4" wing from Mount Vernon, NY and this would be a rare late signing period pick-up for the Patriots. Last week Wright had a home visit from Larranaga and assistant Chris Caputo (recruiting genuis) and the source states that everything seemed to go well. Today the site is reporting that Wright is scheduled for an official campus visit this weekend, which is really a good sign. Both rivals and have him listed as the #35 shooting guard prospect in the nation and in his last high school game he scored 25 points which makes you wonder how this kid isn't committed to somewhere yet despite getting looks from the Big East and the ACC. This move is coming because of the mid-season departure of Vlad Moldoveanu which leaves a scholarship open but considering they already have an '09 class of five and redshirt Kevin Foster entering the mix next season I don't understand why they wouldn't save this last scholarship. Stay tuned.

Hey Ryan, why do you call Caputo a recruiting genius? Just curious...

I guess you can't pass up talent when it shows up but maybe there are going to be more departures from the current squad in the near future?

Johnnie Williams, Paris Bennett, Luke Hancock, Rashad Whack, Vertrail Vaughns, Kevin Foster...and now possibly another big recruit? There aren't enough minutes to go around to keep everyone happy. Hopefully Coach L. has already had discussions about red shirting with a few incoming players.

If Grant jumps at this opening I think GMU will own the CAA top spot for a while.

Maybe just maybe Coach L is thinking of the old days when he had a second string of players that would compliment the first. You would think with these guys coming in with size, speed, and quickness he could have that uptempo, pressing style team. I would love to see that.

Any word on where Curry is headed?

Bringing back the green team concept isn't necessarily a bad idea. Based on the youth of many of the players, why not?

Good riddance, Coach Grant. Enjoy the "big" conference feel at a football-loving school.
