Many of his best players were overlooked because they came from states exploding with big-name talent.
The next under-the radar playmaker could be New Orleans Lusher athlete Keyan Williams.
"Arizona and Colorado State are the two schools that are recruiting me the hardest," Williams said. "I would like to get out to both schools this summer, but I don't know if that will be possible."
Arizona's main recruiting pitch to Williams has been that it wants to increase its overall speed.
"Coach Calvin Magee is recruiting me for Arizona," Williams said. "He said they are trying to stockpile speed on their roster and he feels that there is an opportunity to contribute early, so when you factor in that Arizona is in a major conference and they've been recruiting me hard, they've made a nice impression.
"In their offense the goal is to get guys in good match ups and they feel that I can make a nice contribution from the slot."
Rapport with the coaching staff will play a key role in Williams' decision.
"The main factor in my decision will be how much I think the coaches want me and how I fit in their system," Williams said. "I don't want to go to a place where I'm just considered another player and the coaches are just trying to fill a roster spot."
With so much to think about, a decision doesn't appear imminent.
"There definitely isn't a time frame for a decision," Williams said. "I like the schools recruiting me and I just want to see how the next couple months go.
"Once I start taking visits I would imagine I will get much closer to a decision."
