      Korey McRay is one of the nicest guys that you will ever meet. He is loved and respected by his players and will be missed in Westwood. It was a mistake for CSA not to keep him. He has good connections to the AAU players and teams back east and would have helped CSA with his recruiting from east coast. According to the reports, CSA has a good shot at the west coast recruits, but needed someone to recruit from back east.
      We will miss you Korey. Good luck on the new job and we will see you soon.
      Your friends at Pauley.

        Ucla doesnt need to recruit the East Coast. Get the best players from LA and a few from Indiana and we’ll be consistently good.

          Mark, We’ve missed your completely dumbs**t comments for a while. Glad to see you’re still in good form.
