A short note about JaWaun in today's Sports page, "In Brief". Lickliter article on p. 1. I'm sure we have media folks/contacts on this board from time to time, and for those of us who have the free time to follow, this site is great. However, I also have to somewhat agree with Lerch on this one, too. Walter and Co. have gotten a bunch of dormant fans "On Board", and we will help ourselves by doing anything possible to maintain/increase coverage and the intensity.
At the same time, there are also NCAA rules that must be followed, and it's easy to assume that your school can announce at the same time we see it on twitter, Verbal Commits, etc. Social media is fine, but it's social, not official. It's also not a good idea to fully count on a recruit until we have a LOI. Similarly to the Sparks coaching announcement, UE doesn't want to "walk back" an article that's released by the Univ.
