Alan King scored a huge recruting coup. He signed Ryan Hall out of California. Ryan must have had some eligibility left over from Stanford and decided to go for a small school environment. Needed a bit of a break from the media hype after that big London performance yesterday. A nice quiet spot for the buildup to Bejing and then the Frontier Conference XC Championships.
Okay, okay, okay. So, maybe it wasn't that Ryan Hall. But, Alan did sign a Ryan Hall. Here's an excerpt from the piece in the Billings Gazette:
Ryan Hall, a senior at San Luis Obispo High School in San Luis Obispo, Calif., has signed a letter of intent to run for the Rocky Mountain College men's cross country team this fall.
Hall ran varsity cross county all four years of high school and was a member of three separate teams that were represented in the CIF finals for cross county. Hall's personal best time for the 5K cross-country race is 17 minutes, 57 seconds, which was run this last fall.
See you on the roads, tracks and trails.
