    Following VC on Twitter, I think they are dropping down. I just don’t think we are seeing them in the GNAC for whatever reason. I’m not sure if the GNAC coaches prefer JC kids who have been through the grind over D1 drop downs that think they are too good for D2? Or if they just haven’t been attracted to GNAC schools. The last D1 drop down UAA had was 3 years or so ago with Darius Guinn who quickly found himself out of the rotation and not playing. I’m not sure what the deal was but he never looked happy at UAA and left after one season.
    Great report, it does seem like the conference coaches do prefer junior college players and I'm not against that since Division 1 isn't recruiting the junior colleges much anymore. That said, there needs to be a combination of in-state prep players, in-state junior college players and out-of-state players.

    All Division II programs are regional, not national programs and the only way they will get a fan base is to have some sort of local interest. At Western Oregon our theoryof late has been to go to California to get most of our players and its resulted in some pretty bad won-oss records. Last year the team had one in-state player on the roster in Benzel and I thought he was the best player. For decades our bread and butter has been the Northwest and I believe the reason the latest coaching staff is struggling is because they've gone away from that.

    I am encouraged that they seem to be returning to that in this year's recruiting class. I'm not against getting some Californians but you can't have your entire roster that way and then lose games like crazy. I won't speak for Alaska Anchorage but there's some talent up there that could play at UAA and I think they should get it being the big university in the big city in the state. It's rather obvious.

      CWU's coach is an exception, really targeting the D1 guys (Camron McNeil, Samaad Hector, Seth Dawson, etc). Just none so far in this current recruiting class.

        UAA added a 6’3 guard from 5-22 Nebraska Kearney. Looks like depth to their rebuild of their guards.

            WWU just picked up a JUCO transfer forward from Sacramento City College in Dajon Lott. Last season he averaged 21 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 blocks per game. Only had 1 other offer from Academy of Art, which seems surprising. Big much needed recruit for Western as they rebuild to replace 4 departed starters

              Heard rumour a lot of D2 coaches just assumed he was a D1 guy so he didn't get a lot of D2 looks.

                CWU adds Arizona former 6A player of the year in Garrett Anderson, a 6'6" guard from SJSU. Central seems to do a really good job of bringing in division 1 transfers (Cameron McNeil, Samaad Hector)
