1. Changes in the staff to emphasize recruiting. Check (DeCuire promoted and obviously now our main recruiter, coach John reassigned to a more administrative role).
2. The hiring of a young Cal alum with NorCal or SoCal AAU ties. Check (Theo Robertson, Oakland Soldiers, Cal GA).
3. Aggressively pursuing the local AAU star players. Check (Bird, Gordon, Lee)
4. Aggressively pursuing players that might be "one and dones." Check (Bird, Gordon, Lee).
5. Take advantage of Bird's legacy status, local residence and lifelong Cal fandom to get the ball rolling, especially with an early commitment that could get other top players interested in Cal (Check).
Everyone is happy now.
