It's just tough when you have so many other schools so close to your recruiting beds.
Realistically, STL and KC are your hot spots. You have KSU and KU in the KC area and Illinois and others in STL.
I think MU can absolutely get and should get 75 percent of the top guys. It gets tough when you have the UNC's, Duke's and Ku's coming after guys as well.
Saul is right though, the MU brand is blowing up right now.
