Post-Dispatch Ofodile eager to direct Mizzou recruiting

Q: You probably haven’t gotten to meet all of these new guys yet, but do you have a feel for Barry’s staff and how they’re going to approach recruiting and maybe sense that it’s different from what’s been the standard at Mizzou?

A: The biggest difference will be you now have more of a collective different set of viewpoints and different opinions. You have guys who come from several different programs that have been excellent in recruiting. So there’s going to be excellent opinions. In my opinion recruiting is about numbers and volume. It’s really important that you think outside the box. It’s really important that you have multiple mindsets and ideas. You have to mold that into a unified recruiting model, but to have so many guys that have recruited at such a high level at different places, that’s huge.
