No matter which direction is chosen, it is imperative that those pulling the trigger are talented enough to make those calls. I don't believe that those in charge, down to our scouts, have the insight to correctly identify talent. Nor do our coaches, on all levels, have the knowledge to correctly instruct and guide lower level talent.
