Thanks Knarcisi... For the record though... My forum beat the article by a little bit.

I like it! Ties to the program and region, can help coach shooting, and most importantly we're replacing an ace recruiter with a guy who is also a very promising recruiter. Heck of a job by Jake to help get 5-star Darius Garland to Vandy. He has ongoing relationships with 2020 and 2021 recruits and that's something that neither Netti nor Scoonie could provide since they have not been in AC capacities the past couple seasons.

Seems like we could become a player for Keon Johnson now:

"Keon Johnson was a top 2020 priority for Bryce Drew. So how can Jerry Stackhouse keep Vanderbilt in the hunt? Johnson said keep Jake Diebler. If not, he said they would have to start over."

For those of you who don't know, Keon Johnson is a T35 6'5 SG in the 2020 class. Tennessee might be the leader, but based on Barnes' recent comments about how he would be in LA if UCLA had picked up his buy-out and given that Keon seems to have a great relationship with Diebler, there might be just enough room for us to get our foot in the door if we're inclined to try.

Do you have him transferring too already? I know you had the entire roster transferring when you were posting on another site.
