Honestly, after seeing all this testimony, it strikes me that JB is actually a very strong recruiter.
Brian Bowen? His dad was obviously looking for money from day one. (Or if he wasn’t, it’s rather “unusual” that all these schools were offering it anyway).
Yet the narrative in some places was that JB “didn’t work hard” at recruiting, he “can’t close,” and he “can’t relate to kids.” Small wonder why we were not a serious player for Brian Bowen, an instate kid.
Now that all this evidence is coming out, it makes me really wonder about the people who fervently insisted no cheating (or very little) takes place. Did they not know, or did they not want to acknowledge it for whatever reason?
