He can recruit fine... have you seen him talk compared to Stans?
The real question is...will Stans' TREMENDOUS booster network around the southeast step up to the plate and get on board with Ray? THAT is what will decide whether or not he has success in recruiting.
At this point, I'm not convinced that he HAS to acquire blue chip talent to compete at a high level. He's just got to get a full complement of players that fit his system. After all, Gonzaga, Butler, and VCU didn't attract blue-chips for YEARS and still had tremendous success based on coaching, scheme, and workhorse players that fit the scheme.
