Four for Alex and in this decision like who their who their real schools who were who were involved there at the end. Leo. 200 total Mahan bill between. Old Mitt. When Terry. Every important in his recruitment they would you know showed up alive they've been there car. It's probably euros. All told a variance umbrella. Good coach good people. And you have kind of real. You get below. We had cruel to gators. We room. Guru I mean we head and we had a pre school there it's a big name school good premise these fees grew due to be programmed overlooked amid Alex occur. And you know it just came down to you know this came down basically to. Wichita State Ole miss can you personally. University of Memphis. I know with with Memphis it was. It was interesting because. You know there is there are two really really tout the point guards in this city your son obviously and Ty Harris. In the class of 2018 Alex had been on campus several times and he was a priority. For the University of Memphis for a long time. Did you feel. A shift did you feel it changed it sort of value communications went with Memphis at some point like I guess how did it. Changed. As it relates to the University of Memphis in their recruitment of Alex. Well I mean. So I don't think it had anything to do with universal news for the program which is. Universal than that loses to both. Always a bit of both. Good programs they know there's a good program but I don't think you're anything due to school I didn't think it was more with the fear is in debt Alex. You know just maybe want to go out for at the box outside the treaty. It just try something different. You know. More different school we don't they in the same conference. Would you know Wichita State platform is this parallel already established and kind of filled out form. How tough for a bit because I know Tony Matta like just like you mentioned of the form of state players down now know assists and moments. Because I know how hard he recruited some I know how hard Ole miss work or. How tough was it and that and that relationship Joba would Matlock and Kennedy thought it was a telling them yesterday that. Again as we love Joba whereas the whistles they was as tough conversation imagine had to be. Well yeah oh yeah you have to look Landon. Tim bailout well look I'm not proud man login. You know he called me like maybe lever for two days before. Most of the tab appears started he was like a limo look look what's going only. You know and in it would kind of Barca you know they know they're already kind of told me that you know we leave it would talk talks with doing critical. Arco race and cop on getting him would you know neither he noted that lord there's more to a billion Oden is all about Alex to you know court of public father or not this not just try to beat their. To hear about and do everything that I can't at the far blueprint in a while the role you know if we only can be no. Do so much of facial looks devastated so is not about. Local lore is not our big trees and so that they can have a date so you know I had good. Deal broke it down to me a lot of medical not cutting and not by ago he got hit six. I think this morning. She could read and that would lead like a rather late in a creek and back so is Israel no no hard feeling the what are but it appears that you know. I. I respect element to these amounts are respect and you did that store with margin out of a few weeks ago commercial appeal. Tigers beat writer where it you know he was he was doing a story on how things that kind of shifted. Mrs. has kind of changed its priority because you know they've been weigh in on doubtful while in work counts which Broward they go to Tyler errors but she said summon that story. About at about Tyler hairs that I jumped out all the page to me. Because in this day and age when you're talking about fathers when you talk about their age you coaches that kind of thing you've always got usually. By the Loma she got folks and art market is number one the other QA not that. But jewelry and you were in that story quoted as saying you love top players is game you love that family and you even said that if Tyler Harris goes to Memphis you bought tickets to go see. About the relationship with the harris' seems like most of us want a pitch YouTube YouTube families the two point guards. Against each other. But it seems like it's quite the opposite you got love for those folks. Did did it not to look low and did like you know. Until to a crime does Lauren. And we probably is mourners in we get so much history. Our friend and my family is gonna get so much mr. Newman bit and its way before its outlook. And low you know vote like. It below between hair do than a low makes its. At the beginning before it do you have notebooks but now bit distant sources it is it is good to deliver a review more because we get to pick him up to do you go to an intrepid. So I appreciated respected and Harris is Tyler. Frank and I am devastated. Family got respect Kremlin. Does a part of you wanna see Todd Harris at Memphis so that we can get some AC man Lomax there's bad. There are very you know outbreak there will be denigrated just caught you know round pick. I tell us in the media enabled situation cannot you know clear. I think there will be great at this point let you know colored. Will be a good looking interest. Was sure. This town elude. Welcome it to me and a little bit about mole did little deal betraying it it would doll would have been fairly university entrance you know always go. You know it is. It is it is different when you voted involved then you know this is usually a lot. It did look complicated to vote is well good university differently and it. You know I congratulate bill regatta two will that was you know trying to come to going to be. Universal McCann follow. How were your interactions with with tubby and and the staff because that obviously they have been. Criticized here locally sometimes by us and others about the way they approach recruiting. How were your interactions how frequently where they what did you think about the job they did just. On the recruiting site of of of Alex hey we want to be a part of our program what what what would you say. Well me. And in this situation like there is like me who did. You know this could be recruiting game Newton worked a certain way and they came India. You know principal could be a good for the recruit. But he could have been in are we left filled person that they could probably could have been you know baker the put little bit more income in it would put Alex regard to de LA bit.

It's all about recruit got a better record when they came to a lot of guys industrial lot I gotta tell you about Coca proved we utilized. We take credit for the last opting to have this live here and there. We take cannot talk to hill from town so. The relationship I mean it it did it and who like it would look may have wrapped tightly but it just could have been more. They can't collect they could put a little bit more to a communique when me and his mother. Got you there's. But no but it is that's all it's just a little bit more communication other than that the right right right and. Yeah because you don't we we have lived an alien who we read about a quarter drive me just going to be a little bit more. But it could have been a little bit more but sadly I'm not trying to say is like you over the bridge negative thing about us you personally have to put. To get could have been a little bit more about bill and saying treated so you look if you guys who try to recruit seeding aside and created. You know if you should go look it up the weight not fail like welfare of the way I mean. You know way. But luckily it's adorable here or just gonna play from my school I'm here my wrote the date.
