Powell's learned from the master of fake hype (Lanana) and attached his name as they start recruiting for their new program at UW.
When Centro was named the assistant, I was shocked so many people thought it was a big deal. I was like this is almost certainly something to put on his resume in case he wants to get in coaching , something that gets him free and unlimited access to a great workout facility and something that helps his old college coach.
As for Lanana, I was told when I was coaching that he used to create fake spontaneous run-ins with university higher ups on. Like he'd be walking across the campus with a recruit and bump into the AD or President - some big shot - and the big shot would say, "Oh Vin, is this **star names recruit ** - the big recruit you were talking to me about?"
Can anyone confirm a story like this?
I hope it is true! That is awesome and very smart of him to do... I like to think If I was a college coach, I would try similar tactics to land the big talent.
