I don't know about his coaching skills, but Bankins was a good guy back at Madison. Good for him.
All in all, I think this is a pretty big blow to Hampton. Beatty was a heck of a recruiting asset for the Tidewater area and it seemed like they were grooming him to be the head coach. For all those people worried about Madison's recruiting in Tidewater drying up, I think this news and having an overall better program should definitely enable us to recruit 757 for quite a while.
No way recruiting would dry up over here. There are to many players that sign here each year. JMU is a very popular school around here, especially with the football players. They get respect even before any of the coaches come to the High Schools.Originally Posted by Boris
