So you don't think Harvey will improve at all with a year of collegiate coaching/training/competing under her belt?

BAS saw exactly what I saw when I went and reviewed video of Morgan Harvey. She is NOT an SEC athlete under any circumstance. Someone said that she was one of the top HS'ers in the country. That doesn't mean they are SEC worthy. Look at what it took last year to be ranked in the top 8 of the short hurdles (13.18) and long hurdles (58.58). Should BAS given Miss Harvey a year - absolutely positively yes but from a technical standpoint the young hurdler is light years behind the top SEC scorers. And BAS just decided to punt her now.
Sad, but real.
If you expect all of your recruits to score in a competitive conference from day one without any coaching, guess what, you're a horrible coach.
I don't coach anymore, but if you had offered me a sub-60 400 meter hurdler (sub-60 in high school for that matter!) I would've jumped at the chance.
