Seems this staff is already being more aggressive with their recruiting than the prior regime.

Pretty sure I was more aggressive at recruiting for USU over the last few years than the prior regime.

What do you see, black and white, or players, coaches, and people? I think it’s unfortunate if a recruit is so fixated on the racial makeup of a team that it would be his deciding factor for where to play. We’ve had many awesome players of color who seem to have enjoyed their USU experience. We currently have players from 4 continents (7 countries).
Well noted Paco. Too many folks seem to be making judgments on color and not on the talent and character of a player or person. Athlete, citizen, coach or neighbor, it shouldn't matter.

I couldn't agree more. That said, I can see why an athlete would want some people that look like him that come from a similar culture as him on the team. It'll just be a matter of convincing them they'll succeed at and love Utah State.

I understand Paco's sentiment, but I think it confuses the concern some on the board have expressed. It is not the race of any individual player, or any judgments being made based upon the race of any individual player that is being discussed.

It is that we have very few players of a certain race on our basketball roster right now. This isn’t concerning because players of certain races are better at anything because of their race (that would be racist). It is concerning because good basketball players come from all races, and we don’t want to be limited in our ability to cast a wide net and recruit players of all races because of a lack of diversity on our roster.

I will leave this topic alone now. If Twitter is any indication, the current staff is casting a much wider and more diverse net than the last staff. My concerns have diminished greatly. I have a lot of confidence in Coach Odom.

It’s a very weird feeling to me to have an Aggie basketball staff that’s actually really into recruiting.

I already prefer this staff’s approach in recruiting. Cast a wide net, and see what you might reel in. Never know if you don’t try.

It also completely misses the point. No one has ever said we shouldn’t recruit white people. Glad you realized you can do better and self-policed.

Pretty sure I saw official stuff, though I don't recall for certain. He was at the Ryan Odom basketball camp as a coach for some of the little kids there (K-8).

Feels like Odom has contacted/offered more kids in 3 months than Smith did in 3 years.

It seems that way. I have know way of knowing since you very rarely saw tweets of players we had contacted. It's exciting to keep the fans engaged. At the end of the day I just to see wins so hopefully Odom brings that.
