"We've had a few of their players reach out yesterday afternoon," Mora said. "Nothing has been done. We want to make sure we are within the rules before we do anything. We want to make sure everything is clarified as to what is the process going forward and where those scholarships are going to count."
"I think you have to proceed with haste and caution at the same time," Mora said. "You can tend to get a little overexcited about a guy. We don't have a lot of familiarity with a lot of their players ... I've talked to all the coaches about guys they might be familiar with and there are some positions we might look at a little more closely than others."
From the LA Times:
Mora said, "We don't have a lot of familiarity with a lot of their players. We went through their roster and so many of them are from Pennsylvania and New Jersey. They don't have a lot of guys from Texas or Georgia."
