- The other "Take-Away" from this meet is that Isai Rodriguez should consider going PRO immediately ... similar to Evan Jager & Drew Hunter. My research DOES NOT reflect a "Real American" NCAA XC performance comparable since Bob Kennedy's victory. This was Sydney McLaughlin-like!!!
You don't get a decent pro contract for 4th place at NCAA XC. Rodriguez was good all season, but it was one race he has not yet duplicated.
Now if the kid puts up some good times in track, he might be worth another look. It's clear based on his performance yesterday that he is aboslutely oozing with talent and we are only seeing the start of it, if he stays focused and healthy.
