    Thanks. Red was out with JB this weekend and was keeping an eye on him since he's very close with the Canadian folks that Shittu deals with. Like most Canadians, I wouldn't be surprised if he eventually reclassify into 2017 rather than stay in 18. He's a 5 star talent regardless what class he ends up in.

    If he reclassifies do you think we'd have a shot? We can definitely pitch some early PT to a kid of this caliber.

    It'll be interesting because we know JB isn't going to fly down to FL and check him out at Montverde. Plus who knows if he's still salty with the Ennis camp, because they are the ones that deal with Shittu out in Canada. We just gotta trust Red to work his magic on this one.

    JB can golf in FL. Maybe he makes it a dual purpose vacay!

    Montverde plays a national schedule, maybe they will make their way up to the northeast for a game or two and JB can stay in his natural territory.

    The Montverde HC, Kevin Boyle used to coach at St. Patrick's in NJ for many years. Since coaching at Montverde, they have scheduled at least two homecoming games a season back in NJ for him.

    Francis you really are amazing-- mentioned this last week.

    Any chance we end up with class of:
    1. Quade
    2. Hami
    3. Tucker
    4. Shittu
    5. Richards
    6. Wright

    Seems like that would be a hugeeeee coup
