Told you Groce was a good hire.
I liked the hire when it was made, I just think fans were still getting over the rejection by two other coaches.

As far as Demetrius Jackson, I don't know. From what I'm reading it's down to ND or Illinois (Kansas was a player), and both fan bases seem to think he's theirs. We'll see what happens, but ND has been recruiting him a bit longer. He's #1 on my wish list. Illinois hasn't had an athletic point guard like him in some time.

In more good news, Xavier Rathan-Mayes, #25 in the 2013 class according to rivals, is on campus for his official this weekend. It's down to us, UConn, and FSU for him. Groce has been pretty impressive in getting in on some of these kids in a relatively short period of time. Definitely has the fan base excited.
