View Full Version : Zag recruiter in Dallas

Last night I received a bit of intel from a very good source. My son works at Dallas Love Field when he saw a man wearing Zag gear and chatted him up. My son's not a Zag fan, so he had no idea which member of the coaching staff it was, but I was able to exclude Donny Daniels.

To narrow it down further, Southwest Air is the main airline that operates out of DAL. Was he flying back to Spokane?

Just tossing it out there for discussion.

That was my initial thought. I wear my Zag shirts all the time when I travel, but I typically use DFW when traveling for work.

I presume since he son "chatted him up" the son was able to discern between fan and coach.

I would say it is not Tommy because he's not a Southwest type of guy, he's on the Lufthansa frequent flier plan.

Kidding, it could have been any of them - except Daniels, presuming it wasn't a gracious black man he was speaking to.

Donny's a great guy, but I specifically asked my son if he spoke with a black man, and he said no. lol

BTW, there's a lot of excitement down here about the SMU-GU home & home. Tickets for that game are going to be expensive, especially if they play it at Moody (cap 7000).

I should have been more specific...the traveller said he was a recruiter. Alas, my son is on the road to Vegas, so I'll have to catch up with him next week. Hell, for all I know, it could've been WooHoo, but Francis wasn't travelling with him. :lmao:

Who WAS this secret recruiter????

Perhaps you could use Google. Obtain pics for the currrent Zag coaches and assistants. Aaaaaand, then do a "line-up" of sorts. Make your kiddo pick em out of said line-up. Use a dark room, bright lights, and other necessities as you see fit to solicit the correct response. Just a suggestion tho. ;)

Was he before or after security.

If he's after security, he could have had a layover on his way to anywhere. Southwest flies non-stop to:

Albuquerque, NM
Amarillo, TX
Austin, TX
Birmingham, AL
Branson, MO

Hey, not a bad idea. Took one of the cities, Harlington, Texas, and found this guy.

6'3 Senior Guard from Harlington South High.

Averages (according to MaxPreps) 16.6 points, 11.8 rebounds.

Grant Preciado Dunks (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYxyvwfeJ_k)

Preciado, South pull away from Falcons (http://www.brownsvilleherald.com/sports/hs_basketball/article_d535573e-7a87-11e3-b483-0019bb30f31a.html?mode=jqm)


Preciado blocked a three-point attempt by Los Fresnos’ Roy Quesada, taking control of the ball and darting up court for a one-handed flush. On the next possession, Preciado drilled a 3-pointer as a 35-31 edge ballooned into a nine-point advantage heading into the final quarter.

“That dunk really swung the momentum into our favor. I think that was one of the big plays that we made,” Harlingen South coach Brian Molina said. “It’s like I told our guys, ‘We make the big plays on defense, it’ll lead to something nice on offense.’”

Preciado scored a game-high 23 points, including nine in the second quarter. But it was his two plays late in the third that fueled a 23-7 run to close out the game.

“That guy’s an amazing player,” teammate Nick Garcia said. “One of the best in the Valley and probably one (of the best) in the state. He’s a good defensive player. That’s what he relies on. That’s all he wants to work on — defense. That’s how he gets his points. He works hard.”



Don't take me too seriously... just following up with the request! :D Plus, my guess is he'll play football in college.

Such a nice fellow and exudes good energy; he certainly isn't a gregarious type. I went to school with Brian and sat right next to him for an entire semester(Busn Systems class) and maybe, MAYBE got 2 actual words out of him in 4 months.

He simply smiles, nods, and/or gestures in a friendly/sociable way when addressing him. An eloquent guy, who commanded attn during class presentations, yet socializing with strangers or acquaintances wasn't an interest for him. Same way when I watched girls overtly flirt w/him. No interest, straight to the point, all business...yet in a nice way.

Makes sense his lovely, ambitious Wife is out-going, very open, and will talk with anyone and everyone.

Brian is a great guy, but from personal experience, BZ is right...he's not a 'chat-it-up-kind-of-guy'.

On the day in question, (4-23?) I saw Brian Michaelson recruiting, but not in Dallas. He was at Spokane Valley Mall, recruiting for the class of 2032, I would expect. I saw him in the little kiddie play land area, although he was on the phone while observing the play of potential recruits, so not sure how serious he was about any of them.

BTW - Seinfeld would be proud of this thread - one of the longest - from post 3 on, which is about nothing.

Maybe a staff member just wanted some good tacos and was headed down south to McAllen for real deal Tacos. Maybe he was recruiting the best Tacqueria cooks in the world and asking them to come see the plans for the new student center and Herak lounge?

Seems that McQuaid has a lot of interest in SMU. Took a visit there over the weekend (https://twitter.com/TheRecruitScoop/status/460890330229784576), in March (https://twitter.com/TheRecruitScoop/status/441336082232524800), in February (https://twitter.com/TheRecruitScoop/status/432271047447293952), in January (https://twitter.com/EvanDaniels/status/419503535353393153), and September (https://twitter.com/EJSports4/status/381492116989288448)

McQuaid visited Creighton in March (https://twitter.com/TheRecruitScoop/status/441992901179240448)
