I created a thread on here a couple of years ago questioning if LaVall Jordan was the right fit to coach this team and whether he was capable of being a HC at a Power 6 program. I remember many of you saying that it was too early to question this and that he needed some time in the role before a fair assessment could be made. Even after that, I fully admit I had some doubts and really questioned him. Today though, I am here to issue an apology to LaVall Jordan. He was thrown into the fire at a very unenviable time for any HC, let alone one at a prominent D1 program like Butler. Now that he has had a few years to really dig in and begin to mold this program in his way, I can fully admit he's doing a great job. This comes on the heels of pulling in his 2nd 4* recruit in less than a week and putting the cherry on top of the greatest recruiting class Butler has ever seen. Aside from pulling in a monster class, LaVall Jordan: -Landed a top 100 prospect last year in Khalif Battle -Identified 100% certified gems in Jaxson Hayes and Aaron Henry, only to have snake coaches swoop in and land these kids after LJ did all the dirty work as the first power program HC to give them offers -Landed 3 quality transfers with Tucker, Nze, and Smits -Brought in a local 2021 commit with a ton of upside, squashing any potential for him to (very feasibly) blow up and have all the vultures circling with offers (looking at you Steele, Miller, Boltmann, and Painter) -Overhaul the landscape of the recruitment process, tracking kids years ahead of their graduating class, something we weren't ever accustom to before him I don't know if LJ will ever see this, and honestly, it doesn't matter. He deserves a "my bad" and an "I'm sorry" from me (and let's be real, some other people on this forum too). Keep it up LJ...you made me a believer!!
