Kinda disappointed we weren’t more in on Dennis! But maybe he was never interested in us
But isn't Ty Foster moreso like fatts then dennis?To my knowledge we never seriously pursued him. There is likely a pretty good reason for that. I made a post last year that it was highly unlikely we would go after Dennis hard given the fact that we had just landed Fats. You are talking about two local top 100 players of similar size who will likely end up playing the same position. Recruiting local stars can be tricky. Historically at least, it has been difficult at best to recruit two local stars for the same position. You have to be extra careful about the appearance of recruiting over a prized local star. It's easier to pull this off with non-local kids. We don't know what commitments were made during the recruitment of Fats. None of this is insider information but likely explains the rationale for the non-aggressive recruitment of Dennis.
Fats is going to contribute right away. Very talented and a great young man.
