Back in 2007, when Tom Crean first told me in an interview that he had hired Buzz Williams, a top recruiter from the South, I heard Buzz speak and assumed he would expand MU's reach into the Southern region.

After Taylor committed, I asked Crean how he closed the sale with Taylor and he said, ‘Oh, it was simple. I put Buzz on him and he would not let him leave until he committed."
