    Re: 2017-2018 Roster

    The problem has been recruiting the level of player that we would like to get from Louisiana. There are plenty of Sun Belt and Southland caliber players in Louisiana. There aren't many that can take us to the next level, and the ones that are around ultimately go to bigger schools. This year's class we recruited a couple of guards that we didn't land. Brandon Rachal from Natchitoches Central is a big-time player who had a great relationship with the previous staff. After the coaching change, he eliminated us from his list and ultimately signed with LSU. Cedric Russell from Peabody is a big-time scorer who was really high on Tech. He was once an LSU commitment, but his stock cooled and LSU went in a different direction. He was going to take an official visit to Tech, but the weekend before, we took a commitment from another guard and pulled our offer. Russell ultimately signed with ULL, and I think he'll be a very good player there. There's a big kid at Carroll, Larry Owens, who is about 6-8 and 250 pounds. I know we were recruiting him at one point, but I'm not sure what happened. He may not have grades and may end up at a JUCO. (Edit this to say that Owens ended up signing with NSU, but I swear I was told he'd have to go JUCO.)

    I do believe that the big time players from Alexandria on north, we should be all over those guys and recruiting heavily. There aren't normally a ton of them who can play at our level, and we lose a lot of those guys to the SEC schools or Big 12 schools.

    We need to keep signing big men who can actually play, not just from Louisiana but from anywhere on the planet. That is what Nevada, NM St, UTEP, WKU, and about 70 other programs similar to LA Tech do and it pays well for them come tournament time. By "tournament" I mean that thing that Tech hasn't been to since we were all young people! Signing 12 guards and 2 big men is equivalent to having all WR & DBs with no OL and DTs on your football team- you just get MANHANDLED and embarrassed by your opponent.

    To show how fast the turnover is, Boykins and White are now the only holdovers from the White years.
