    I don’t necessarily agree with Cal’s “reclass” and come to UK strategy, but I guess he’s trying to run as many through as possible before the end of the “one and done” era.

      Remember that most of the guys reclassifying are old enough to be in the class they’re joining. They just spent an extra year in prep or repeating a grade at some point.

    Some of the reclass guys are personally behind it,as they want a leg up ahead of the coming change. So what are you supposed to do when a stud contacts you with the idea, or rumors mount that it is an option the kid is exploring ?

    Enjoyed the podcast and all the timely information.
    You did not make mention of Brown in the 2 Nd podcast , today.
    Does that mean you feel that Ky has no chance to sign him ?
