Thank you for pointing this out. Seattle has some great talent. But after that, your prime recruiting area is Los Angeles, which is 1500 miles away and you have to compete with UCLA and USC (who are the hometown schools) and Arizona there. I think Hop sees that the East Coast has better talent and he has 20 years of AAU and high school coaching connections on the East Coast.There’s still more talent back East. 3 of his 5 starters are from upstate New York and another is from Philly. His top two scorers are from Rochester.
