This really does bring up a good question as to whether Lonergan will continue to recruit players who were Vermont targets. He and his staff may have invested considerable time in a number of prospects, even rising juniors at this point. He ultimately has to decide if a player has a chance to succeed at GW, and he really may not have a clear answer to that until he's coached a season in the A10. The problem is that if you're looking at the past 4 years, there's really isn't a discernible difference between the talent level of a Vermont player and that of a GW player. (In fact, Vermont beat us head-to-head and has enjoyed considerably more success over the past 4 years.) However, with GW playing in the A10, a GW recruit ought to have a higher ceiling than a Vermont recruit playing in the America East. In the end, it won't be vastly different than applying to colleges in general. You have your safety schools, your target schools and your reach schools. Same goes for recruiting.
