Was on the phone with Shoji. Apparently they had a practice this morning. We were told yesterday they weren’t. Oh well.
only 1 practice today. 1 practice tomorrow, which includes the Green-White scrimmage
Dave said this morning went well, that they look good at times, but a little concerned at other times. said he hoped the ‘good’ team shows up Friday. Said he thought they had the pieces but wasn’t there yet. No set starting lineup but getting there. Probably will tweak it as the season goes along.
As we’ve been discussing the four middles are all trying to claim a spot. And he agreed from what has been said here, that Longo is the top libero with Maeda No. 1 at DS. with 15 subs this year there’s going to be a lot of situatoinal stuff going on.
Most of the stuff we talked about was for the preview magazine story. I’m doing the feature on him. Asked if being in the Big West will affect recruiting. He said that it might help players who were already looking at Hawaii. The travel is obviously better.
Asked who he might redshirt. He said he won’t make that decision until maybe next Wednesday or Thursday.
