john ashaolu is the director of basketball ops at east carolina univ, so calling him a "handler" like he's some agent's runner is a little disrespectful.
I suppose it is if you always consider "handler" to mean that. I don't. I think a lot of high profile recruits have handlers. Not all of them are dirty. In this instance, he's his handler. He's "handling" the recruiting process.
I have to admit that it did cause me to pause when the "showcase" stuff starting coming up.
Olu had mentioned how he liked the way Fischer (San Diego St) had used a similar "tweener" type forward.
You still need your players to contribute what they are good at. So, he wants to go somewhere where he can get shots up to prove he's got a perimeter game. There's no doubt he's a big time rebounder in the college game but if he wants to go away from that, we may not regret him going elsewhere at all.
