No doubt it is good news, but I'm talking about the "insiders" affiliated with other programs. Farrell is good at what he does, but he's still just one data point. I think there's a reason why his 24/7 predictions are still 3-to-1 in favor of VT, and the Michigan guesses are 3 OSU guys, 2 UM guys, 1 Minnesota, and 5 national guys. The VT guesses span national guys and guys from UM, Alabama, OSU, South Carolina, North Carolina, FSU, Virginia, Duke, and Georgia. 3-to-1 with no contributions from any of the VT-affiliated 24/7 people leads me to believe it's still a longshot.
“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”
