That article I referenced in the class thread indicates he's looking more for the right fit with a coach than brand name. So I would have to think that he is giving us any attention has to be a great sign. He's a Top 25 overall player in his class by several services.

I thought this was a telling quote that speaks to the comments above:

“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.

Efton on an unofficial visit to UVA. Tony brings out the big guns to greet him. Tough to compete with this. This pic also dispels any doubt that the kid is a legit 7' foot MINIMUM.
