I thought this was a telling quote that speaks to the comments above:
I heard Tony Bennett was in to see him this week.
“We spend a great deal of time together,” Kassab said. “One of the things I asked him was, ‘What’s important to you in this recruiting process?’ And he looked at me and said, ‘Coach, the most important part for me is I want to develop a relationship with who I’m going to play for.’ A lot of kids today, I get an offer from Kentucky or Duke, I’m going. He’s very genuine in saying, ‘I want to know the person I’m playing for as a person, not just as a basketball coach.’ ”

It's no secret Ritchie and Tony have no desire to go head to head on the basketball court for the foreseeable future, but recruiting is another matter. They really don't have much choice. Efton already has a ton of options, with more to come, but I would not be surprised if his choice came down to those 2 coaches.
